South Africa Vs Bangladesh 1st ODI Match Prediction

South Africa Vs Bangladesh Match Prediction -Who Will Win Today’s Match?


South Africa Vs Bangladesh: Bangladesh has been touring South Africa for over twenty years, but has never managed to win an ODI in the nation. This time, they come in with a lot of hope to correct that record. They are full of confidence after some strong performances in recent games. They won a Test in New Zealand, allowing them to believe that they can compete overseas.

Bangladesh though will need a lot of skill if they are to beat South Africa in an ODI at home. The South African unit isn’t one with superstars, but they have loads of talented players with each capable of punching above their weight.

South Africa will be pleased to end a tough phase in the format, as they have whitewashed India after a group of series which ended badly for South Africa. For the ODIs, South Africa will be at full strength and the IPL bound players will only leave after the series.

Bangladesh will also be at full strength with Shakib Al Hasan finally agreeing to tour, while the likes of Litton Das are in spectacular form. Bangladesh, like South Africa do not have too many superstars, but their bowling line-up is full of talent.

Key Players

Shakib Al Hasan

After a lot of confusion, Shakib Al Hasan is finally touring and will be eager to score runs and take wickets to help erase any sort of confusion in the camp. He was rather quiet against Afghanistan, but comes into the South Africa series as an X-factor and will be the difference between both sides.

Tabraiz Shamsi

Tabraiz Shamsi is often underrated but is a spectacular spinner. His left-arm wrist spin brings a unique combination to the table and his approach is very unorthodox. Although he last played for South Africa in 2017, Shamsi has been regular in the domestic circuit and is looking very good.

South Africa Vs Bangladesh, Match Tips

South Africa is a strong team at home and despite Bangladesh coming into the series with their full-strength squad, it will be tough for them to scrape a win in this series.

Match Prediction: South Africa will win the match.
