RSA vs BAN Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Oct 24, 2023

South Africa and Bangladesh will contest the 23rd match of the 2023 Cricket World Cup. The Proteas and Tigers currently occupy third and sixth position, respectively, in the tournament's 10-team standings.

The Proteas will go into this match on the back of a big win over England, while Bangladesh recently lost to India. Let's see what the betting markets and cricket odds have in store for this key World Cup match.

South Africa vs Bangladesh head-to-head record

Bangladesh have three wins to South Africa's two in their last five ODI meetings. Overall, the Proteas have 18 wins to Bangladesh's six in this format of the international game. In Cricket World Cups meetings, they have two wins each.

South Africa

South Africa had a big task in attempting to bounce back from defeat to the Netherlands - and did just that against England. They were largely convincing against the reigning Cricket World Cup champions, but need to avoid another slip-up against Bangladesh.

They were without captain Temba Bavuma for the fixture against the English. He will likely return - and replace opener Reeza Hendricks. Batter Heinrich Klaasen has been in fine form this season - and will be buoyed by the significant century he scored against England.

The Proteas will want to put in an improved death bowling performance. They will continue to be without the injured Anrich Nortje and Sisanda Magala. South Africa allowed England 70 runs for the ninth wicket. They cannot allow the same or similar against Bangladesh.

If South Africa win here, they can start to genuinely jostle with India, New Zealand and Australia for an early berth in the semi-finals stage of the tournament. But they will be hard pressed against a Bangladesh unit that are no longer minnows in major tournaments, especially in sub-continental conditions.

Bangladesh started the 2023 Cricket World Cup with a promising victory over Afghanistan before losing to England, New Zealand and India. A fourth successive defeat won't necessarily rule them out of contention for a berth in the semi-finals, but will have heavy implications on the rest of their campaign.

Batting-wise, they will rely on wicketkeeper-batter Mushfiqur Rahim and opener Liton Das for large contributions. Rahim and Das have shared more than 300 runs this tournament and, in the absence of the veteran Tamim Iqbal, are hugely important for the Tigers.

Bangladesh have three bowlers with five wickets each at this year's Cricket World Cup. Spinners Mehidy Hasan and Shakib Al Hasan and seamer Shoriful Islam have put in solid individual performances, but Bangladesh need them to succeed collectively if South Africa are to be really challenged.

The Tigers can be motivated by their ODI record against South Africa, especially at Cricket World Cups. Bangladesh, too, will know that the Proteas are prone to blowing hot and cold. That success against England could be followed by failure against the Tigers.

RSA vs BAN Toss Prediction

The toss-winning captain opted to bowl first in 15 of the first 21 matches of the 2023 Cricket World Cup. The team to win the toss here will likely opt to field first, too.

South Africa have won almost 80 percent of their ODIs against Bangladesh after batting second. But they will also know they beat England at the venue for this match recently after batting first.

Pitch and Conditions

This will be the second of five matches at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai for this tournament. The pitch should still be relatively fresh and full of runs.

The average score in the last five ODIs at this ground has been 269 - it's not necessarily a high-scoring venue. That said, South Africa totalled 399 here a few days ago.

It's well worth playing two specialist spinners here. Bangladesh almost certainly will. South Africa could return Tabraiz Shamsi to the team, but might not want to tinker with a winning XI.

No rain is predicted for the days leading into this match. There is no inclement weather suggested for matchday either. We should get a full fixture in. The temperature and humidity levels will be characteristically high of Mumbai and India in general.

RSA vs BAN Betting Tips

South Africa's ODI record against Bangladesh - especially at Cricket World Cups - is arguably not as good as it should be. But motivated by the big win over England, at the same venue, they should win here.

The Proteas are priced as 1.25 favourites. Bangladesh are offered as 4.05 underdogs. Betting on the Tigers to win this match is substantially riskier, but could bring good value.

Bangladesh, even with their threatening spinners, will be greatly challenged against a Proteas batting unit that is in excellent, collective form.
