Team News

Key Players

Kagiso Rabada

Kagiso Rabada showed how a fast bowler can dictate the pace of the game commandingly in the second game. He broke the back of Bangladesh’s batting line-up and reminded everyone that he is the attack leader. His pace was high and he was accurate, which will send some alarming signs in the Bangladesh dugout.


Mahmudullah hasn’t been among the runs for a while and will need to find a way to start scoring. He is a key member in the middle-lower order, and runs from him will make a huge difference. With Bangladesh under pressure after a defeat, his calmness will be key as Mahmudullah looks to bring back his skill of sheparding the lower order.
