Another remarkable match at the ICC t20 world cup is going to be between South Africa and Bangladesh. With both teams looking to make a strong impact to their positions in their group, let us analyze the game at hand.
One of the strongest aspects of both teams is their batting prowess which cannot be understated enough. To note down South Africa’s excellence we will take their 3rd t20 vs India weeks back as a performance measurer where they won the game giving a first target of 227 runs in total. Rilee Rossouw scored 100 in just 48 balls with a Strike rate of 208.33. Quinton De Kock himself is one of their strong openers scoring 68 runs against India last time. On the Bangladeshi side we have Najmul Hossain who appears to be a violet opener with hard hitting ability however there are two players that need to be watched on their batting discourse who are Litton Das & Shakib Al Hassan.
THE BOWLING THREAT
Bangladesh’s bowling is their main asset and they can slow the South African batting lineup quite well if given a chance. Taskin Ahmed took 4 wickets in the previous game currently holding the highest wicket taker honor to his name of the tournament with a decent spell from Hasan Mahmoud as well in the previous game. South Africa on the other hand have decent spells in their arsenal too especially from the likes of Ngidi who has 17 wickets in 10 matches this year so far. Rabada is also one to watch given his bowling threat and prowess with just an economy of 7.88 this year.
The game will be tough but the South African batsmen will take the game by the scruff of the neck on these batting pitches.
