Kagiso Rabada’s five-wicket haul at Johannesburg helped South Africa level the three-match ODI series 1-1. The third and final ODI of the series will be played at the SuperSport Park, Centurion on 23rd March from 4:30 pm local time. While South Africa is eying for back to back ODI series win at home, Bangladesh still hold the card to register their first series victory on South African soil. After winning the first ODI in a style, Bangladesh opted to bat first in the second. Neither the decision nor the batting performance went right for Bangladesh. They couldn’t live up to the mark they set in the first ODI and saw them getting reduced to 5 wickets for 34. Bangladesh’s middle-order put some resistance to the fiery SA bowling attack to take the score to 194 for the loss of 9 wickets.
Chasing 195, SA opener Quinton de Kock played a ruthless inning of 62 runs in 41 deliveries with 9 fours and 2 sixes. The SA top-order was enough for Bangladesh. They chased the target in the 38th over of the game with 7 wickets in hand. Overall, skipper Temba Bavuma managed the crisis in the SA camp after losing the first ODI. With the win, South Africa kept the series alive. They now have a 20:1 Win-loss ratio against the visitors at home in all formats. Bangladesh kept their first place in the points table of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League’s points table with 100 points in 16 games. South Africa gained a place and now moved to the 9th spot in the table with 49 points in 12 ODIs.
The final ODI will be important for the hosts to enter the automatic qualification zone of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. The impressive win makes them the favorites to win the last game and hence the series.
Temba Bavuma must be satisfied with the results. Not only he bring the team back from the loss, but also managed to avoid the shortcomings of the bowling department. He bowled 6 overs after Wayne Parnell left the ground limping off. Fast forward, Bavuma also scored 37 with the bat to hold the game in SA’s favor. His confidence will be the key to SA’s game plan in the third ODI.
Janneman Malan and de Kock will open the innings for SA. The openers put a partnership of 86 runs in 12 overs. Quinton de Kock who missed the first ODI due to an illness never looked out of touch. He continued his form from the Indis series to score a quick 62 runs inning. South Africa dropped Aiden Makram in the second ODI for Kyle Verreynne. Verreyene returned the favor with an unbeaten half-century. This means Makram will set to warm the benches as Bavuma won’t be looking forward to making changes to the winning combination. Rassie Van der Dussen and David Miller will keep their places in the playing eleven. The middle-order batters didn’t get a chance to show their skills in the second ODI. But their performances from the first ODI are enough for SA to go with them. South Africa went with three pacers and two spinners at Johannesburg.
The inclusion of Tabrez Shamsi over Andile Phehlukwayo surprised everyone on the pacer-friendly pitch. Shamsi came out more effective than Keshav Maharaj with 1 wicket for 26 runs in his 10 overs spell. Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi will continue to lead the pace attack of SA. Rabada dismantled Bangladesh’s top-order with five wickets at the end of the innings. Ngidi took just a wicket but gave 34 runs only in 10 overs. Marco Jensen will be the forced change in the third ODI in place of injured Wayne Parnell.
Key Players: Quinton de Kock, Rassie Van der Dussen, Kagiso Rabada.

Bangladesh batted first in both ODIs, yet showed altogether different outcomes. While they managed to put 300-plus on the board in the first ODI, they got shattered in the second. They couldn’t handle the extra bounce and pace at Johannesburg. Fortunately, they will be back at The Centurion to play the last game where they registered their first ODI victory on SA soil just a few days back.
Tamim Iqbal and Litton Das will open the innings for Bangladesh. The duo is now quite compatible with each other’s techniques. There is a worry for Bangladesh with Shakib Al Hasan’s current state of mind. The legendary all-rounder’s three family members are hospitalized back at home. His performance with both bat and ball will be crucial for Bangladesh to win the final ODI. Shakib scored 75 in the first game played at The Wanderers.
Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahamadullah’s form is proving a problem for Bangladesh. Perhaps a change in batting order might help them individually too. Yasir Ali and Afif Hossain will keep their places in playing eleven. Both have scored a half-century each in two games played so far. Bangladesh will go with Mehidy Hasan as a spin option. The Wanderers pitch is not that effective for the turn. But Hasan who also bats well can provide sustainability in the overall plan. Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, and Taskin Ahmad will lead the pace attack for Bangladesh.
Key Players: Litton Das, Afif Hossain, Shakib Al Hasan

The partly cloudy weather is expected on 23rd March. The temperature will range between 14°C and 25°C. The wind will be flowing from the northeast at 8-15 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 final ODI between South Africa and Bangladesh will be played at SuperSport Park, Centurion. The Centurion has witnessed 27 Tests, 59 ODIs, and 14 T20Is. The 22000 spectator capacity ground has witnessed some high-scoring games in the recent past.
In 51 ODIS, the team chasing the target has won 27 times. Even in the last seven ODIs, teams had a successful chase on 5 occasions. The team winning the toss should field first.
The second ODI showed that South Africa are a reckoning force at home. They have 4 victories in 5 ODIs played this year. Against Bangladesh, they now have 20 victories in all formats of the game. Quinton de Kock is in great form. The top-scorer of the India vs South Africa ODI series gave a headache to Bangladeshi bowlers in the second ODI. The SA pace attack proved lethal in the second game. Kagiso Rabada’s five wickets showed a different class. Though Bangladesh have 9 victories in the last 11 ODIs, SA are clear favorites to win the series.
We predict that South Africa will defeat Bangladesh.
