BAN vs RSA Match Prediction - Oct 19, 2022

Tournament: ICC Men's T20 World Cup warm-up matches, 2022.

Date: October 19, 2022

Format: T20

Venue: Allan Border Field, Brisbane, Australia.

Time: 08:00

We have seen some surprises in the warm-up games played so far in the initial stages of the T20 World Cup 2022. Both these teams are going into this match on the back of these surprising results. Bangladesh was surprisingly bundled out for 98 runs when they were set a target of 161 runs against Afghanistan. On the other hand, South Africa bowled out New Zealand just for a paltry 98 runs total. Later they chased this target in 11.2 overs. For South Africa, the bowling charge was led by the likes of Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi. These two spinners were responsible for picking up five wickets as they ran through the kiwi middle order.

Unfortunately for Bangladesh, Soumya Sarkar who joined the team for this T20 world cup failed to find a rhythm while batting at the number three spot. The rest of the Bangladesh batting line-up was also put under pressure by the spinners and eventually they found it too difficult to score runs against them. On a wicket where most of the spinners did well, Shakib Al Hasan turned out to be the most expensive bowler on the side. This is probably the last opportunity for both these sides to get their blend right before the Super 12 kicks off later.

Another problem for Bangladesh is the trouble Shakib Al Hasan is having in dealing with career problems personally. In case he ends up losing form, it will cost Bangladesh pretty heavily. Soumya Sarkar has proved his big-hitting capabilities during the domestic T20 competitions. He has always been a significant player for Bangladesh on their international circuit. Sarkar is a key all-rounder for the Bangladesh side as he bats in the middle order and as a result, plays a significant role for their side.

Mustafizur Rahman may find some assistance from the wicket. However, his lack of speed might turn out to be a concern during the competition. It appears as if he relies a bit too much on back-of-the-hand deliveries for getting a breakthrough. T20 cricket has evolved a lot these days and batters these days do not get deceived by these deliveries. Bangladesh needs a bowler that can consistently bowl yorkers. One good alternative for this is Taskin Ahmed who grabbed a place on the national team because of his speed. As far as the rest of the bowling attack is concerned, Bangladesh has packed several spinners in their team.

Hasan Mahmud and Taskin Ahmed will lead the fast-bowling attack for Bangladesh. All the rest of the all-rounders in the team are off-break bowlers apart from the old fox Shakib Al Hasan. Shakib is a left-arm orthodox bowler for Bangladesh. The main strength of the Bangladesh batting line-up lies in the presence of Soumya Sarkar and Shakib Al Hasan in the middle order. Although there are some noteworthy names present in the lower-middle order for Bangladesh, it doesn't seem probable that they will manage to get a huge total for Bangladesh against a quality South African bowling attack.

South Africa

The South African outfit faced exactly what they needed in their first game. They received a confidence booster from this match. After having lost the ODI and T20I series against Indians, South Africans were desperate to win. The team needed a victory that would bolster their confidence to another level and provide greater momentum before they got to the Super 12 stages of the competition. One big positive to have come from this game for South Africa was the performance of Rilee Rossouw.

The batting-friendly pitches that will be provided for the world cup might not assist the spinners such as Keshav Maharaj and Shamsi. However, their form is significant for South Africa while going into the main stages of the competition. In this warm-up match against New Zealand, the South African outfit was led by David Miller. Another good thing for the team was that Temba Bavuma had to sit out for this game. It might be a good idea for everyone concerned if he continues to sit out. The South African team is looking for more impact players at the moment.

You can pretty much expect Klaasen to get another opportunity when South Africa goes up against Bangladesh. The South African management will be looking to check out how well he can strike the cricket ball. It will help them decide whether to play him ahead of Bavuma as a more in-form batter in the side. One of the key bowlers to watch out for during the game is Wayne Parnell. Other bowlers South Africans would be looking for to get them the breakthroughs are Ngidi, Nortje, and Rabada. All these bowlers together have developed a lethal bowling unit for South Africa that has accuracy and speed. It might be tough for the Bangladesh batters to come back after a collapse in the last game against this kind of bowling attack.
