Peterson, called up as a late replacement for Paul Harris, finished with figures of five for 33.

Abdur Razzak scored a plucky unbeaten 32 before Morne Morkel had Mashrafe Mortaza caught by Neil McKenzie for four to end the game.

McKenzie and man of the match Graeme Smith shared a record opening stand of 415 on the opening two days to set South Africa up. Both men scored double centuries as South Africa declared on 583 for seven before Bangladesh were bowled out for 259 and were forced to follow on.
