RSAW vs BANW Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Dec 08, 2023
The second match of the T20 series was washed out and so this final match becomes a must-win for South Africa Women. They trail 1-0 coming into the series and have to win to be able to salvage a draw. For Bangladesh Women, this is an opportunity to make history.

RSAW vs BANW Team Previews
South Africa Women
South Africa Women brought back some of their experienced players like Laura Wolvaardt and strengthened their side after the shock defeat in the opening match. The fact of the matter remains that South Africa is a side that is rebuilding after some big retirements and is pretty vulnerable.
The batting depends very easily on Wolvaardt and although Tazmin Brits, Sune Luus, and Anneka Bosch are all extremely talented players, a collapse never seems too far away from this team. We also think that the South African team needs to improve how it approaches steady spin as that was an area they were found wanting in during the first match of the series.
The bowling is inexperienced as well. Tumi Sekhukhune, Masabata Klaas, and Nonkululeko Mlaba will lead the charge for the South Africans. There is an absence of genuine pace in this lineup and the ability run through sides that was apparent with South African sides of the past.

Tazmin Brits, Laura Wolvaardt, Anneke Bosch, Sune Luus, Lara Goodall, Delmi Tucker, Eliz Mari Marx, Sinalo Jafta, Masabata Klaas, Nonkululeko Mlaba, Ayanda Hlubi.
Bangladesh Women would have been happy to see the second match rained out. They are now in an advantageous position with South Africa Women needing to make all the moves. Bangladesh's approach to T20 cricket has evolved in the last 12 months and this team has seen a lot of success off late.
The batting form of Nigar Sultana, Murshida Khatun, and the emergence of a number of all-rounders have added resilience to the side. Yes, the team will still struggle to set or chase down really big scores but it seems to be getting par totals or just a bit more then that with regularity.
With the bowling lineup also very steady, Bangladesh has found a template that works for it. We think the bookmakers are underestimating the Bangladeshi women quite a lot leading into this match. They have the capability to win this series 2-0 and cause a massive upset.
Bangladesh Women Playing 11
Nigar Sultana, Nahida Akter, Sobhana Mostary, Murshida Khatun, Shorna Akter, Rabeya Khan, Fahima Khatun, Lata Mondal, Marufa Akter, Shamima Sultana, Shorifa Khatun.

Pitch and Conditions
The conditions have improved and the threat of another no-result because of rain is quite low. We could still have a few interruptions, though, and so chasing might be an advantage. As far as the pitch, it looks like we are going to have a surface that offers some help to the bowlers with the new ball before settling down and becoming more batter friendly.
Something around 140-150 will be competitive.
RSAW vs BANW Betting Tips
We think this is another great opportunity to back Bangladesh at some very attractive odds. There is no reason to write the victory in the first match as a fluke. In fact, the cracks in the South African lineup are quite apparent. It is definitely worth the risk to punt on Bangladesh Women.
Bet on Bangladesh Women to win.
