South Africa Vs Bangladesh: Bangladesh celebrated a landmark win and are moving forward nicely in 2022. They beat New Zealand in a Test in New Zealand and have finally won an ODI in South Africa. While the win was a pleasure, Bangladesh will be happy to know that they are only one more win away from a historic series win overseas. They came to South Africa without an ODI win in the nation and will be thrilled to go back with a series win in South Africa.
The team put up some brilliant performances with Yasir Ali and Taskin Ahmed making key contributions. After all the chaos, Shakib Al Hasan did well to prove that performance is the best way to clear any sort of issue in and around a team.
For South Africa, the upcoming game is a must-win game. They struggled in the first game with bowling changes and strike-rotation. There were some good performances from Rassie Van Der Dussen and David Miller, but it wasn’t enough to take South Africa home.

Rassie Van Der Dussen
Ever since Ab De Villiers announced his retirement, South Africa had a silent but dependable replacement in Rassie Van Der Dussen. Der Dussen took De Villiers spot and is batting with insane consistency. After 33 ODIs his average is still 75, and he is finding runs with ease, while accelerating at a swift pace.
Taskin Ahmed maintained a tight few spells and was tough to get away at Centurion. He bowled well, and fast, and is a key factor behind the win as he maintained a strong economic rate.
