South Africa vs Bangladesh Prediction

SA vs BAN Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

South Africa are targeting their third win in a row at the 2024 T20 World Cup when they take on Bangladesh, themselves looking for their second victory on the bounce, at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York. This is Match 21 of the tournament with this game part of Group D. Read on as we preview this match which gets underway on Monday 10th June at 10:30am.

South Africa looked like they were going to be beaten by the Netherlands for the third time in a row at a Cricket World Cup or T20 World Cup when they fell to 12/4 when chasing 104 to win. However, they have some character and talent in their team and they got over the line which will serve them well ahead of this match.

There have been many negative stories written about Bangladesh over the last couple of weeks after they lost their first two T20Is in the three match series against USA. However, they won the final match in that series before beating Sri Lanka and they will fancy their bowlers to cause South Africa problems in this game.

SA vs BAN Match Toss Prediction

Ahead of Sunday’s games, batting first at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium has seen only one of three teams win. Therefore, we predict that both captains will want to field first ahead of this match.

SA vs BAN Pitch Report

The groundsmen have been busy on this pitch, removing any grassy areas and trying to make it a bit more batter friendly. However, particularly with the new ball, it is still a very tough place to bat and any total over 155 will be very hard to chase down.

New York Weather Report

According to the weather forecast, it will be a dry and warm late morning and afternoon in New York. The temperature will be in the mid-twenties with only a small amount of cloud cover.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

Although South Africa’s top order has suffered failures in both games of the tournament so far, it is highly unlikely there will be any changes ahead of this match. The bowlers have looked sharp and there are no injuries reported in the group.

SA Key Players

  • Tristan Stubbs- although the 23 year old has made only 46 runs so far in the tournament, he has played a big role in rebuilding the innings for South Africa and taking them to victory in both matches.
  • David Miller- if it wasn’t for the experienced left-hander then South Africa could well have been beaten by Netherlands once again. His ability to pick the right time to attack is exceptional.
  • Anrich Nortje- the right-arm quick bowler continued his incredible record in T20 World Cup matches with the wickets of Bas de Leede and Teja Nidamanuru on Saturday.
  • Ottneil Baartman- the consistency and subtle changes from the medium fast bowler have been just what is required on this pitch. He took three wickets in the 20th over for his side against the Netherlands.

SA Team Form

South Africa have now won two matches in a row but they have had worrying moments in both.

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

Reeza Hendricks, Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram (c), Tristan Stubbs, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Ottneil Baartman

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

It was a close game which will have been draining mentally and physically for Bangladesh against Sri Lanka but the win should mean the players are raring to go again for Monday. Although this is on a different pitch, we expect the same side to be selected.

BAN Key Players

  • Towhid Hridoy – batting at number five on Friday, the talented right-hander hit four sixes, half of the number of sixes scored across both sides in the game.
  • Litton Das- the keeper-batter is a mainstay of Bangladesh’s side across all formats and he produced a much needed 36 in the win over Sri Lanka.
  • Mustafizur Rahman- the left-arm pace bowler is very experienced and comes into this match with 13 wickets from his last four T20Is.
  • Taskin Ahmed- the right-arm fast bowler and vice-captain missed the series with USA through injury but returned for this T20 World Cup and took 2/25 against Sri Lanka.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh are rebuilding their confidence and are now looking for their third successive T20I victory.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Tanzid Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Litton Das (wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Towhid Hridoy, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Rishad Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Mustafizur Rahman

Who will win South Africa vs Bangladesh Match?

Bangladesh have some talented bowlers as well as some very experienced players, but up against this South Africa squad full of white ball specialists, they are clearly the lesser team.
