South Africa vs Bangladesh Betting Odds

Let’s move on to the top cricket betting tips and predictions ahead of today’s World Cup match.

Bangladesh are all but out of the competition with three losses in the three played. To make matters worse, their talismanic all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been ruled out of the World Cup with injury.

Meanwhile, South Africa are looking strong with back to back wins and will certainly fancy their chances to make it three for three against the Tigers.

In our South Africa vs Bangladesh betting tips and predictions, the Proteas make for the far obvious choice.

South Africa vs Bangladesh Betting Tips & Predictions - T20 World Cup

South Africa Team News

After losing to Australia in the Super 12 opener (right here in Abu Dhabi), Temba Bavuma’s South Africa have bounced back in style with consecutive wins over West Indies and Sri Lanka.

The Proteas won both those games while chasing – the first one by eight wickets and the second by four. Interestingly, the target in both those games were 144 runs and 143 runs respectively.

Against the Caribbeans, the South African players had a field day as they won the match with 10 deliveries to spare. The match against Sri Lanka, however, was more close – it wasn’t until the second-last ball of their inning that the boys sealed the win.

Nonetheless, there are plenty of positives for the African nation to take from these victories. Their bowling unit is nothing short of phenomenal with Dwaine Pretorious picking up six wickets so far, conceding just 34 runs. Tabraiz Shamsi and Anrich Nortje have also been quite decent.

With the bat, Aiden Markram is proving his mettle with consistent performances while the game against Sri Lanka saw the likes of Bavuma and David Miller step up.

Clearly, South Africa are improving their form with every match they play. And contrary to popular belief, this is a team capable of going deep in this year’s World Cup – they have won 10 of their last 11 T20I matches this year.

South Africa’s Likely XI

Reeza Hendricks, Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Temba Bavuma, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi

Bangladesh Team News

Bangladesh started their T20 World Cup preparations with back to back series wins over Australia and New Zealand. At one point, they were pegged as the dark horses who can stun the big guns but all that hype and momentum has quickly dissipated in the United Arab Emirates.

After finishing second in the qualifiers, Bangladesh have incurred heavy losses to Sri Lanka, England, and most recently, West Indies. Perhaps, the Tigers were outdone on the field by England but the matches against Sri Lanka and West Indies were quite close.

Some may even argue that the games could have very well gone either way, especially since Bangladesh lost to the Caribbean outfit by just three runs with five wickets to spare.

To pile on to their miseries, the skipper Mahmudullah will now have to deal with the departure of Shakib Al Hasan. He won’t be featuring in the tournament anymore owing to a hamstring injury and losing your leading wicket-taker in T20I cricket is a bitter pill to swallow for any side.

After the match against South Africa, Bangladesh will play the in-form Australia – which effectively reduces their prospects of picking up a consolation win even further.

Bangladesh’s Likely XI

Mohammad Naim, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossain, Mahudullah, Mahedi Hasan, Shoriful Islam, Nasum Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman

Venue & conditions

We are in Abu Dhabi for this one where the conditions seem to be better primed for bowling. Seamers can benefit from the swing and batters will need to be careful in defending their wickets.

Being a day match, dew will have little role to play. And looking at how the games have gone here so far in Super 12, batting second seems to be the norm with three of the four wins coming out of such situations.

South Africa vs Bangladesh Toss Prediction

In the coin toss department, things are not as one-sided. Bangladesh have had some luck although, they still trail South Africa with 2-4.

Let’s back the Tigers to win the toss this time and try to catch up with their South African counterparts.

South Africa vs Bangladesh Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: South Africa to win @ 1.32 with Pure Win

Both sides are heading into this fixture on the back of completely contrasting performances. South Africa have the wind in their sails and are riding high on momentum; Bangladesh are dejected and effectively out of the World Cup.

Plus, the Proteas also hold a massive advantage in the form of an unassailable, 6-0 lead over Bangladesh in T20I cricket. They are also fielding an exceptional bowling attack in all departments with the likes of Kagiso Rabada, Nortje, Shamsi, and Pretorious – something that may work in their favour on the tricky pitch of Abu Dhabi.

Needless to say, South Africa have the upper hand in all aspects and they are more likely to win this fixture.

Today’s South Africa vs Bangladesh Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Anrich Nortje South Africa Top Bowler @ 4.20 with 10CRIC

Nortje has been fairly consistent in this year’s World Cup with five wickets in the Super 12 already. Given his ability to clock high-speed deliveries, he will enjoy bowling on the Abu Dhabi surface.

Plus, he was the leading wicket-taker here against Australia in that opening match – there is no reason why he can’t repeat that feat again, especially against the stuttering batting unit of Bangladesh.
