Pietermaritzburg - Dean Elgar scored his 13th first-class century to help South Africa A continue their dominance over Bangladesh A on the opening day of the second four-day match between the two sides at the Maritzburg Oval on Wednesday.

The home side won the toss and reached 233/2 by the close on a day that was restricted to 62 overs.

The platform was laid by Elgar and Andrew Puttick who put on 79 for the opening wicket in 22 overs after Jacques Rudolph had won the toss.
