Online Cricket Betting and Match Predictions - ICC Women's WT20 South Africa v Bangladesh

Dane van Niekerk of South Africa

South Africa and Bangladesh are lagging at the 4th and 5th spot in Group A respectively. Both the teams have not been able to meet the expectations of their fanbase.

More so is the case with South Africa who have all the ingredients of putting up a good show but have failed repeatedly. Bangladesh had raised hopes by winning the Asia Cup and beating the likes of India and Pakistan but a World T20 tournament would always turn out to be difficult for them.

Bangladesh have a quite decent bowling attack but they lack depth in batting. In particular, the team has a dearth of explosive batswomen who can get the game going.

Their bowlers Rumana Ahmed, Salma Khatun and Khadija Tul Kubra have performed well enough but they haven't got enough support from the batting line up, with the exception of Ayasha Rahman.

South Africa have one of the best bowling attacks, headlined by Shabnim Ismail and Marizanne Kapp. With the bat, Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Marizanne Kapp, Dane van Niekerk, Mignon du Preez and Chloe Tryon have all the talent in the world but they have not been able to make it count when it matters the most.

Although a win would not be able to allay an unceremonious exit, South Africa, being the better of the two sides, would like to prove a point and not only win the match but win it comprehensively.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.

Bangladesh- Shamima Sultana, Ayasha Rahman, Fargana Hoque, Nigar Sultana, Rumana Ahmed, Sanjida Islam, Jahanara Alam, Fahima Khatun, Ritu Moni, Salma Khatun, Khadija Tul Kubra, Lata Mondal

South Africa- Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Marizanne Kapp, Dane van Niekerk, Mignon du Preez, Chloe Tryon, Shabnim Ismail, Faye Tunnicliffe, Yolani Fourie, Masabata Klaas, Moseline Daniels
