We are entering the deciding phase of the league stages in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. The upcoming clash between South Africa and Bangladesh would be important for both sides. South Africa who won their last game against Sri Lanka would be looking for a win here to take a step close to the semifinals. For Bangladesh, this is the last opportunity for them to keep hopes alive after the loss against West Indies in the last game.
Bangladesh has struggled and has lost all their three games in the Super 12 due to the inconsistency of their batsmen. They have never defeated the South Africans in this format of the game and have lost all the six games they have played against them. It will be interesting to see if the Bangladeshis can end this poor run against South Africa in this game.
Temba Bavuma’s side has put all the off-field controversies aside and won the last two games. It was a close win for them against Sri Lanka in the last game where the team held on to its nerves at the final moments of the game. Bavuma would be aware of Bangladesh’s struggles in recent games and look to make the most out of this opportunity here.
The side would like to see a good start in the game from Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks who failed to convert their starts in the last game. Rassie van der Dussen has done well, and he’d aim at setting up partnerships with Rassie van der Dussen, Bavuma, and Aiden Markram in the middle order. They have good hitters to follow in David Miller and Dwaine Pretorius and a strong performance would be expected from them.
Kagiso Rabada hasn’t looked at his best and the side would like him to gain form and do well sharing the new ball with Markram. Anrich Nortje has been the pick of the bowlers for the side this season and there would be big expectations from him. Dwaine Pretorius and Tabraiz Shamsi bowled brilliantly in the last game and along with Keshav Maharaj make it a formidable bowling attack.

Mahmudullah’s side finds itself in deep trouble having lost all their three Super 12 games so far. The side produced one of its best performances of the season against West Indies in the last game but that wasn’t enough as they went down by 3 runs. Their batsmen have been inconsistent which is concerning. The side has a faint hope of making it to the next round and must win this game by a big margin to keep hopes alive.
Mohammad Naim and Liton Das are expected to open in this game and Das having scored runs in the last game would feel confident. In the middle order, Shakib al Hasan has to do well as he has been out of form and set up partnerships with Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim. Afif Hossain, Mahmudullah, and Mahedi Hasan would have to do the big-hitting towards the end.
Bangladesh bowlers haven’t been at their best, but it was a good show with the new ball in the last game from Mahedi Hasan and Taskin Ahmed in the last game. Mustafizur Rahman has to make use of his experience in this game and bowl well in the middle overs after string of failures. The side would also expect tight spells from Shakib al Hasan and Shoriful Islam in this game.

We would see a hot afternoon at Abu Dhabi on November 02 and the wicket is expected to be dual-paced where batsmen would have to be watchful. Spinners are likely to enjoy the conditions. The side batting first would have to target a score around the 160-run mark to win here.
Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi is known for being a batsman’s paradise, but the track has considerably slowed down in recent games. Fast bowlers have found the conditions here challenging with no support for them from the surface with the new ball. It is a great venue for the spinners as there is turn and bounce on offer on the track.
Seven games have been played at this venue in this tournament and only once has a side batting first won the game. We have seen batsmen struggle here in the first innings and the conditions ease as the game progresses. The side winning the toss would definitely like to bowl first on this surface.
Bangladeshis find themselves in deep trouble having lost all their games in the Super 12. Their famed middle order has been in poor form and the bowling attack has also failed to live up to the expectations on surfaces that should have suited them. South Africans have been good in the last two games and have momentum on their side and this would make them favorites to win the game.
