Woahhh!!! What a year Bangladesh is having. First, they beat New Zealand in Tests in New Zealand and now registered their first victory against South Africa in South Africa. They have a chance to continue their fairytale by winning the ODI series for the first time against the hosts. The second ODI of the three-match ODI series will be played at The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg on 20th March from 1:30 PM local time. The first ODI between these two kickstarted with South Africa inviting Bangladesh to bat. The collective effort from the top and middle-order of Bangladesh saw them put 314 runs on the board for the loss of 7 wickets. This was the consecutive breach of the 300 mark by Bangladesh against SA. Before Centurion, Bangladesh had registered 330 runs at The Oval, England in the World Cup.
With 315 runs to defend, Bangladesh turned the favor on their end by taking 3 wickets for just 36 runs. South African middle-order comprising of Rassie Van der Dussen and David Miller tried to change the wind in their direction but fell short by 38 runs to hand over Bangladesh a clinical win. This was the first win of Bangladesh on South African soil. It took them 10ODIs. Bangladesh now also have back-to-back victories against South Africa. Bangladesh is now leading the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League’s points table with 100 points in 15 games. Looks like an automatic qualification to the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 is on the cards for Bangladesh. On the other hand, this was SA’s first loss of the year. They are 10th in the points table with 39 points and need victories in the next two games to enter the automatic qualification zone.
Despite the heroics, South Africa are still the favorites to win the second ODI. Overall, they have 19 wins in all formats at home against the one visitor registered. It will be a do-or-die match for SA as the loss will give Bangladesh their first ODI series victory against them at home or away.
SA skipper Temba Bavuma must be scratching his head to find out what went wrong. They had just come from beating India 3-0 in ODIs followed by drawing the Test series in New Zealand. SA missed Quinton de Kock in the first ODI due to an illness. In his absence, Kyle Verreynne started the innings with Janneman Malan and played some promising shots. But his inexperience showed that SA still don’t have a good replacement for de Kock. Hopefully, he will join the second ODI at Johannesburg.
South African middle-order will be dependent on Van der Dussen and David Miller. Dussen (86) and Miller (79) were the only two batters who resisted the Bangladeshi pace attack. Bavuma needs to score quick runs at the top. His slow innings to stabilize the game didn’t work out in favor of SA. Rather, it added more pressure to the lower-order batters. Another downside of SA is that they don’t have players to score in the down-order. Keshav Maharaj and Lungi Ngidi scored 38 runs in the last 26 balls, but that won’t be the case every time. They should give Dwayne Pretorious a chance over Andile Phehlukwayo in the second ODI to boost the all-rounder’s department.
The classy SA bowling attack looked pale in the first ODI. Ngidi went for 75 runs in his 10 overs while Kagiso Rabada gave 57. The pair managed to take just two wickets. Marko Jansen and Keshav Maharaj took 2 wickets each but weren’t successful to stop Bangladeshis batters to score. SA used only 5 bowlers throughout the game. If Aiden Makram is not bowling, they should look for some other option to go ahead in the second ODI. SA also have Tabrez Shamsi warming the benches. He can be a good addition over Phehlukwayo to add more firepower to SA’s spin attack.
Key Players: Quinton de Kock, Rassie Van der Dussen, Marco Jansen.

Bangladesh will play an unchanged squad for the second ODI. Skipper Tamim Iqbal and Litton Das provided a 95 runs start for Bangladesh. Litton Das’ red hot form continued in the first ODI. His half-century was enough to give confidence to other batters and helped Shakib al Hasan to score freely.
Shakib took the Player of the Match award for 77 runs in 64 balls. The legendary all-rounder now has two awards in two games against SA. If Mushfiqur Rahim clicks in the middle-order it will get difficult for SA from stopping visitors to score easy runs. Yasir Ali and Mahmadullah will be their obvious choice after Ali’s half-century and Mhamadullah’s quick 25 runs at a strike rate of 147.06.
The addition of Albie Morkel as the power-hitting coach is proving to be a good decision. as every Bangladeshi batter scored at a strike rate of well above 100. The bowling unit put an extra-ordinary show for Bangladesh. After Taskin Ahmad’s outstanding first spell, Mehidy Hasan bamboozled the hosts on the not-so-friendly spin track. The pair took 7 wickets and hence will continue to put pressure on the SA batting attack in the second ODI. Both Shakib and Mustafizur Rahman came out wicketless in the first ODI. One can only imagine the magnitude of Bangladesh’s bowling attack if these two make a comeback with the ball.
Key Players: Litton Das, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan

The partly cloudy weather is expected on 20th March. The temperature will range between 12°C and 20°C. The wind will be flowing from the northeast at 12 kmh. The pitch favors batters and bowlers equally. The outfield is lightning quick. A big total is expected in the second ODI from either team.
The second ODI between South Africa and Bangladesh will be played at The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg. The 34000 capacity ground has hosted 38 Tests, 50 ODIs, and 25 T20Is including some big games in the World Cup. Who doesn't remember the 434 runs-chase by South Africa against Australia?
In 50 ODIS, the team chasing the target has won 27 times. Even in the last six ODIs, teams had a successful chase on 5 occasions. The team winning the toss should field first.
Bangladesh are at its peak this season. They are topping the chart in the Superleague. They have 9 victories in the last 10 games. Despite this, The Wanderers is SA’s fortress. They have 9 victories in the last 11 ODIs played here.
We predict that South Africa will defeat Bangladesh.
