Bangladesh Tour of South Africa, 2022 – South Africa vs Bangladesh – 3rd ODI Match Prediction

Kagiso Rabada’s five-wicket haul in Johannesburg helped South Africa tie the three-match One-Day International series at 1-1. The third and final ODI of the series will be played at Centurion’s SuperSport Park. While South Africa is aiming for back-to-back ODI series victories at home, Bangladesh still has a chance to win their first series on South African soil.

The final ODI will be crucial for the hosts to enter the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 automatic qualification zone. The impressive win puts them as the favourites to win the final game, and thus the series.

The game between the two teams will take place on March 23rd, 2022 at SuperSport Park, Centurion.

South Africa vs Bangladesh Team Previews

South Africa (Match Odds – 1.19)

Temba Bavuma must be pleased with the outcome. He not only brought the team back from a loss, but he also avoided the bowling department’s flaws. After Wayne Parnell left the ground limping, he bowled 6 overs. Fast forward to the end of the game, and Bavuma added 37 runs with the bat to keep the game in SA’s favour. His self-belief will be crucial to SA’s game plan in the third ODI.

SA’s batting order will be Janneman Malan and de Kock. In 12 overs, the openers put on an 86-run partnership. Quinton de Kock, who missed the first ODI due to illness, never appeared to be out of the game. He continued his form from the Indis series by scoring 62 runs in the first inning. South Africa substituted Kyle Verreynne for Aiden Makram in the second ODI. Verreyene reciprocated with an unbeaten half-century. This means Makram will be warming the benches, as Bavuma will be reluctant to make changes to the winning combination. Rassie Van der Dussen and David Miller will remain in the starting lineup. The middle-order batters were unable to demonstrate their abilities in the second ODI. However, their performance in the first ODI is sufficient for SA to stick with them. In Johannesburg, South Africa fielded three pacers and two spinners.

Everyone on the pacer-friendly pitch was taken aback by the selection of Tabrez Shamsi over Andile Phehlukwayo. Shamsi was more effective than Keshav Maharaj, taking one wicket for 26 runs in ten overs. Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi will continue to lead South Africa’s pace attack. With five wickets at the end of the innings, Rabada demolished Bangladesh’s top order. Ngidi only took one wicket but allowed 34 runs in 10 overs. In place of the injured Wayne Parnell, Marco Jensen will be a forced change in the third ODI.

South Africa Squad

Temba Bavuma (c), Keshav Maharaj (vc), Quinton de Kock (wk), Zubayr Hamza, Marco Jansen, Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Wayne Parnell, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van der Dussen, Kyle Verreynne

Predicted XI: Temba Bavuma (capt), Keshav Maharaj (vice-capt), Quinton de Kock (wk), Marco Jansen, Janneman Malan, Kyle Verreynne, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Tabrez Shamsi, Kagiso Rabada, Rassie van der Dussen

Bangladesh (Match Odds – 4.55)

Bangladesh batted first in both ODIs, but the results were vastly different. While they scored more than 300 runs in the first ODI, they were thrashed in the second. They were unable to cope with the increased bounce and pace in Johannesburg. Fortunately, they’ll be back at The Centurion to play the game where they won their first ODI on South African soil just a few days ago.

Bangladesh will bat first with Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das. The duo’s techniques are now quite compatible with each other’s. Bangladesh is concerned about Shakib Al Hasan’s current mental state. Three members of the legendary all-family rounder’s are hospitalised at home. His performance with both bat and ball will be critical if Bangladesh is to win the final One-Day International. Shakib scored 75 points in The Wanderers’ first game.

Bangladesh’s form is being hampered by Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahamadullah. Perhaps a change in batting order would benefit them individually as well. Yasir Ali and Afif Hossain will remain in the starting lineup. In their two games so far, both have a half-century. Bangladesh will use Mehidy Hasan as a spinner. The Wanderers pitch isn’t very good for turning. However, Hasan, who also bats well, can contribute to the overall plan’s sustainability. Bangladesh’s pace attack will be led by Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, and Taskin Ahmad.

Bangladesh Squad

Tamim Iqbal (c), Khaled Ahmed, Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed, Yasir Ali, Litton Das, Mehidy Hasan, Shakib Al Hasan, Afif Hossain Dhrubo, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk & vc), Mustafizur Rahman, Najmul Hossain Shanto

Predicted XI: Tamim Iqbal (capt), Litton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Yasir Ali,, Mehidy Hassan Miraz, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Afif Hossain

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The final One-Day International (ODI) between South Africa and Bangladesh will be played at SuperSport Park in Centurion. The Centurion has seen 27 Tests, 59 One-Day Internationals, and 14 Twenty-Twenty Internationals. In recent years, the 22000-person capacity stadium has seen some high-scoring games.

On March 23rd, the weather will be partly cloudy. The temperature will range from 14°C to 25°C. The wind will be blowing at 8-15 km/h from the northeast. The pitch is equally favourable to batters and bowlers. The outfield is extremely fast. In the second ODI, either team is expected to put up a big total.

South Africa vs Bangladesh Match Prediction

The second ODI demonstrated that South Africa is a force to be reckoned with at home. This year, they have won four of the five One-Day Internationals (ODIs). They now have 20 victories in all formats of the game against Bangladesh. Quinton de Kock is in fantastic shape. The top scorer in the India vs. South Africa ODI series gave Bangladeshi bowlers fits in the second ODI. In the second game, the SA pace attack proved lethal. Kagiso Rabada’s five wickets demonstrated a different level of skill. Despite the fact that Bangladesh has won 9 of the last 11 One-Day Internationals (ODIs), South Africa is the clear favourite to win the series.

South Africa is the favourite to beat Bangladesh at the odds of 1.19.

  • Team South Africa thrashed Bangladesh by 7 wickets in the second One-Day International.
  • South Africa has only won one ODI at Centurion in the last five years.
  • Bangladesh has won 9 of their last 11 One-Day Internationals.
