South Africa vs Bangladesh: Bangladesh is all set to play three ODIs and two Tests against South Africa from 18th March to 12th April 2022. The tour will begin with three-match ODI series and the first ODI is scheduled to be played on 18th March 2022 at SuperSport Park in Centurion. Bangladesh team will be led by Tamim Iqbal. With the bat, their biggest bet will be Liton Das.
He is the man in form and the team would expect him to continue his good run. Shakib Al Hasan, who earlier made himself unavailable for the series, has agreed to play and is likely to play all the games.
The batting unit further consists of the likes of Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmuddulah. Keeping in mind the seaming track of South Africa, Bangladesh would be banking on Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, and Taskin Ahmed.
South Africa, on the other hand, would be looking to continue their good run in the ODIs. They are coming into the series on the back of a 3-0 win in their last ODI series against India. With the bat, Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen will be the ones to watch out for. They topped the run-charts against India and are expected to do well against Bangladesh as well.
Besides, the presence of Janneman Malan, Temba Bavuma, Aiden Markram and David Miller should keep the team in good stead. In the absence of Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada will share the fast bowling duties with Lungi Ngidi and Marco Jansen.
Here’s a look at the complete schedule of the ODI and Test series between South Africa and Bangladesh:
1st ODI on March 18 at SuperSport Park, Centurion. The match starts at 4:30 PM IST
2nd ODI on March 20 at The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg. The match starts at 1:30 PM IST
