Bangladesh vs South Africa- Previews and Betting Tips
The journey in the past few months hasn’t been the easiest for Bangladesh. They suffered quite a few losses in one too many T20Is and finally, they kicked off their world cup campaign with a win. In their opening match-up, they faced the Netherlands at the Blundstone Arena. Being asked to bat first, Bangladesh could only manage to amass 144/8 in 20 overs. Afif Hossain top-scored with his 27-ball 38.
When it came to defending a small total, the Tigers did it tremendously well. Colin Ackermann’s exceptional 48-ball 62 went in vain as the Netherlands were bundled out for a mere 135. The match went down to a final-over thriller courtesy of Taskin Ahmed’s brilliant 4/25 and Hasan Mahmud’s 2/15.
Meanwhile, it was a disappointing no-result fixture for South Africa, who faced Zimbabwe in their opening game. Due to scattered showers interrupting play, the match was reduced to 9 overs a side. Choosing to bat first, Zimbabwe started terribly by losing 4 back to back wickets inside the first 4 overs. However, Wesley Madhevere’s unbeaten 18-ball 35 helped Zimbabwe reach a respectable 79/5 in 9 overs. As the second innings began, Quinton de Kock went berserk with the bat. He scored an 18-ball 47 storming the Proteas to 51 in just 3 overs. Unfortunately, the match was called off due to heavy rain.
With Bangladesh's track record against South Africa, we predict the Proteas to win this match convincingly. In an encounter as interesting as this, we recommend you do your research to place reliable and credible bets. We advise you to choose in-game betting as this option offers maximum return on investments and provides the most competitive odds. Also, keep track of a team or a player’s performance and the pitch and weather conditions as it is highly influential to the result of your bet or a match.
The Bangla tigers are riding on plenty of confidence with a convincing win in their opening game. However, South Africa won’t be an easy opponent, and here are some players that will impact this encounter. Affif Hossain has been brilliant with the bat. He has scored 287 runs in the past 10 games at an average of 35.88. Their skipper, too, has been crucial to the team’s success with the bat and ball. As for the bowling department, Taskin Ahmed will be leading from the front alongside Hasan Mahmud. The duo was impeccable in the first game. Taskin has 9 scalps in his past 7 matches, while Hasan has 8 scalps in his past 5 games. Bangladesh won’t give up easily and will put up a tough fight.
Squad: Najmul Hossain Shanto, Soumya Sarkar, Litton Das, Shakib al Hasan(C), Afif Hossain, Yasir Ali, Nurul Hasan(wk), Mosaddek Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman
The Proteas had a disappointing opening encounter as it was their game from all angles. They had the two points served on a silver platter for them, had it not been for the rain interruptions. However, they have an explosive line-up, all confident and hungry to taste victory. After his 18-ball 47-run knock, de Kock surely will be a threat to the Bangla tigers. Alongside him will be the batters, Reeza Hendricks & Rilee Rossouw, who will be assets to their side. Reeza has 296 runs in just 6 games, while Rilee has 231 runs in 7 games with both batsmen averaging over 55. As for bowlers, Lungi Ngidi seems to be in sublime form. He has bagged 15 wickets in just 9 games and will be very lethal against the Bangladeshi batters.
Squad: Quinton de Kock(wk), Temba Bavuma(C), Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi
