CWC 2019: South Africa Vs Bangladesh DKODED
After getting hammered by the hosts, the Proteas are looking for their first win and gain some confidence. While Bangladesh is ready to kick start their campaign with a stunning victory over South Africa.
Will Bangla tigers rise to the situation?
Talking About South Africa
South Africa saw a batting collapse in last game. Their batting heavily depends on their top order. Amla and Du Plessis need to play the anchor role. Bowling department did a good job in the last game and with the return of Dale Steyn, they’ll get better.
Kagiso Rabada (Bowler)
24-year-old South African fast bowler has the blistering speed and frightening bounce. Rabada is in red-hot-form. In English conditions, he can be the worst nightmare for any batsman around the globe.
Imran Tahir (Bowler)
The ever-enthusiastic age defying spinner Imran Tahir can be the game changer any day. Ask him to bowl with new ball, ask him to bowl in death overs, this South African will not only bowl but dominate the batsmen. He is all set for his 100th ODI match today against Bangla tigers.
Talking about Bangladesh
Bangladesh has a bag full of upsets in it. They have turned from minnows to a side worthy of being called challengers. Cricket is a game of uncertainty and Bangladesh is a team who is famous for such uncertain events.
Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain)
Mushfiqur Rahim has been serving as their backbone in batting department for a long time now. The wicket-keeper batsman has the ability to launch fireworks and play with maturity in the situation of a top order collapse.
Mustafizur Rahman (Bowler)
The young fast bowling sensation from Bangladesh has shown his talent from the very first game of his career. His yorkers are lethal but wait, don’t forget his speed variations and off-cutters. He has the ability to dismantle the batting line up of any team and will definitely be the ‘brahmastra’ for his captain.
Where – The Oval
With a capacity to seat 25,000 people, The Oval is the second biggest ground at the World Cup.
The Oval has been a fairly good ground for batting with batsman averaging 35.9 runs per wicket in the past 10 years.
South Africa will be the favorites for this game, but we can’t deny the fact that Bangladesh has the capacity to shock the proteas.
The early matches have shown one-sided affairs, nevertheless, we can see a close encounter if South Africa is put to bat first.
