    Bangladesh [330/6] beat South Africa [309/8] by 21 runs in the group stage of the 2019 World Cup

    After being outplayed in all three departments by the hosts, England, in the tournament opener, South Africa will look to get the first points under their belt when they take on Bangladesh in the fifth match of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019, at The Oval on Sunday.

    Overview:

    South Africa v Bangladesh

    The Oval, London
    2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, Match 5
    Sunday, 2 June; 10.30am local, 9.30am GMT

    South Africa had their moment of glory in the first over of the World Cup, as a brilliant tactical move by Faf du Plessis saw the return of the dangerous Johnny Bairstow for a first-ball duck. However, they could not maintain a firm hold on the game thereafter and succumbed to a 104-run defeat.

    While the bowlers did manage to execute their plans for most part of the innings, Du Plessis admitted that Dale Steyn's absence hurt them dearly. The Proteas will need significant contributions from their senior batsmen, to set it up against the promising Bangladesh unit.

    Bangladesh's 95-run loss in their second warm-up match against India, gave them a reality check and significant positives in the same brief. While their new ball bowlers exploited the conditions to good effect, troubling the Indian top order, lack of wickets in the middle overs saw the game drift away from their hands. Mushfiqur Rahim's form with the bat comes in as a great positive, as the wicket-keeper batsman is the mainstay of their middle order.

    Bangladesh had defeated a strong Proteas side in the super-eights stage of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2007 by a convincing margin of 67 runs but only four players from the current lot were a part of that XI.

    Key Players

    Hashim Amla (South Africa): After being undone by a vicious Jofra Archer bouncer, Amla's return to the crease in the 32nd over of the innings, came in as a huge relief for South Africa. The right-hander indicated his return to form with sublime half centuries in both warm-up matches and would be keen to better those performances.

    Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh): Ranked as the No. 1 all-rounder in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI rankings, Shakib has always risen up on big occasions for Bangladesh. Apart from his batting skills, the all-rounder's left-arm spin will be crucial considering the number of right-handers in South Africa's top-order.

    Conditions

    Well-scattered showers are expected during the afternoon. The overcast and windy conditions might just assist seamers early on and the toss might well play a crucial role in the game's outcome.

    Squads

    South Africa: Faf du Plessis (c), Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, JP Duminy, Dwaine Pretorius, Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi

    Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Abu Jayed, Liton Das (wk), Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan, Mohammad Mithun (wk), Mohammad Saifuddin, Mosaddek Hossain, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Tamim Iqbal

    Some points to ponder:

    South Africa and Bangladesh are both attempting to win the ICC Men’s Cricket
    World Cup for the very first time; the Proteas have never gone beyond the semi-final
    stage whilst Bangladesh got to the quarter-finals last time out in 2015.

    • South Africa have claimed victory three times in a row against Bangladesh ahead of
    this ODI, Bangladesh had won the previous two encounters prior to this span; only
    their second and third wins overall in 20 ODIs against South Africa.

    • Bangladesh (W1) and South Africa (W2) have faced off three times in the ICC Cricket
    World Cup; South Africa winning their most recent such game in the 2011 edition by a
    margin of 206 runs.

    • Bangladesh come into this match on the back of winning four out of four completed
    matches in their Tri-Nation series with Ireland and the Windies, enough to win the
    series.

    • South Africa opened ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 against hosts England,
    suffering a 104-run defeat to Eoin Morgan’s men; it ended a run of six ODI victories on
    the bounce.

    • Bangladesh have completed two previous ODIs at The Oval, losing both matches to
    England, by eight wickets in 2017 and 10 wickets in 2005.

    • Tamim Iqbal (Bangladesh) has scored 223 runs in two previous ODI appearances at
    The Oval, registering scores of 128 and 95.

    • Shakib Al Hasan is one wicket shy of becoming the second player to accrue 250 ODI
    scalps for Bangladesh, after Mashrafe Mortaza (264).

    • Quinton de Kock (South Africa) has now posted scores of 50+ in six of his last seven
    ODI knocks for the Proteas; he became only the second man to record 3,000+ runs as
    an opener since the last Cricket World Cup during his side’s game with England
    (Rohit Sharma).

    • Kagiso Rabada (South Africa) managed to register his best ever ODI innings figures
    versus Bangladesh; claiming 6/16 against them in his debut match (July 2015).

    I will certainly be watching this match with interest. Some BD fans were quite arrogant in discussions about their team's chances against Pakistan in the warm up game so I am expecting BD to be quite a powerful team. Could well be their confidence is well placed so today will be confirmation of their rising stock perhaps.

    Today is the day that tells us how Bd will features in this WC as morning shows the day. I am expecting good fight against SA if not the win. BD should primarily target Sri,Pak,WI and Afg teams. Win against SA or Nz is also must.

    And yet again, the Asian team loses the toss and will have to bat first.

    I hope BD has learned the lesson from previous matches. 30/0 after 10 overs is OK in these conditions.

    I hope they bat with 250 (and not 350) in mind.

    Who understand cricket should know that any of the team in this WC can beat any team in their day. So there should'nt be any arrogance to show. But normal sense also tells that team like India are clear favorite against team like Srilanka or Bd. That being said there are 60-40 chance of BD's winning against Pak. And I think that wouldn't be called arrogance.

    Bro, you donít need to be quite powerful to have your chances against PAK these days - borderline minnows are enough for that.

    I hope they can take the game beyond 35 overs - even which can be difficult at times.

    This is a used pitch. BD need to bat conservatively and get around 270-280. The pitch will grip later on hopefully

    First fifteen overs are crucial for BD. No matter what we should target to play whole 50 overs. Except Fizz all the players can bat so poor run rate in first 15 over with one wicket down is very much acceptable.

    I agree, but I was talking about those fans who were talking as if there was no doubt BD was going to win the game. I don't see many cricket games outside of Pakistan so not that up to date, but BD was looking a decent side when I saw them previously against Pakistan. It could be that they are a lot better since then, and today will be interesting to see if that is the case.

    SA are a mid level side these days, definitely a notch above Pakistan so today's game should be 50-50.

    what rubbish logic behind SA opting to field again, One it is used pitch hence will assist BD spin attack even more in 2nd inning, secondly if Bangla score even 250 and considering how bad staffers are in chases in wc specially off late why would they do it, and it's not as if BD will gift wickets like Pakistan even on sight of Saf pacers. @MMHS can you explain, Saf may still win but for me batting 1st was always better option here.

    Depends on the team. If they have good batsmen they will take advantage of that. In the same pitch our players will be bowled out under 150.

    S Africa already lost by 100+ runs plus its S Africa's weakest team so they have to play really good to win against other team except SL and Pakistan.

    I think, they consider batting to be BD's main strength and back themselves to chase down anything set. Also, the WC trend has been like this. I do feel Mash is happy to lose the toss here - it would have been tough call.

    SA probably looking at earlier games where there has been something in the pitch early on, although this pitch doesn't look green like the one SL were put in on yesterday.

    Actually PAK's weakness in 4-5-6; almost self imposed. Sarfraz is Captain, Hafeez is senior and Haris has scored lot against Aussie reserves, while Malik also is experienced senior. If top 3 doesn't take PAK to 150-3 at least, team will struggle.

    BD batsmen playing very sensibly so far, not taking any risks, just taking singles where available.

    Faf is an overrated captain. Or atleast very poor at reading pitches. Morgan, in the post match presser, said that the pitch was slow and got slower in the 2nd innings. You would have thought that he would bat first here atleast. Instead he chooses to bowl on the same used which is bound to be even slower.

    Early signs suggest it's BD who is favorite and Saf who is under pressure, and captain leading from the front.

    They were almost forced to bowl first with the bowling combination picked.

    They could have and selected shamsi in place of Morris and choose to bowl second, a little too early but I think BD has 2 points in the bag.

    Yeah ok but it's not just this game. When Pakistan toured SA, he gave Pakistan a chance to bat first on a pitch that started cracking on the offstump line at the end of Day 1. Unnecessarily putting pressure on his own team.

    That's exactly was my point for hosting cricket in Canada, particularly GTA. PCB should shift it's base partially in Canada, and it'll be instant hit.

    Shot of the day by Tamim, hit on the rise.

    SA attempts at short bowling have been poor, not really getting the ball to rear up high enough to cause problems apart from one delivery.

    It's a used pitch. Not a fresh one like the one PAK got. Harder to get that kind of zip here.

    Don't think our openers will even survive more than 3 -4 overs.
