Bangladesh will be playing South Africa in the second and final Test at the Sher-e-Bangla International Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka from Thursday.

The first Test ended in a draw and one would believe that the hosts were right on top after they bowled out Proteas for a total of 248 runs. But Proteas pacer Morne Morkel is desperate to show to Bangladesh why they are the No. 1 Test team in the world.

The Proteas were unable to play their natural game in the first Test and that disappointed South African fans. The rain also played spoilsport, washing out almost two days of play.

"We just need to get 20 wickets, whether (it is) a stumping down the leg side or a yorker. We have had a look at their batting line-up again and we are going to go with different plans. 

"Hopefully, that will work for us in the second Test," said the paceman who has 217 wickets in 63 matches in his Test career," Morkel told reporters after a training session on Tuesday. 

The rain has been a spoiler during the Test series so far. After the first Test, it has been raining relentlessly in Dhaka, forcing players to stay inside the hotel for four days. But from Monday, both the teams resumed with their practice sessions indoors.

"(We're) very, very happy. I think we have got a bit of cabin fever sitting in the hotel. Really excited to go and get this Test match underway and there are eleven hungry Proteas in the change room," said Morkel.
