South Africa will look on to bring their election campaign back on track when they face the Bangladesh team today afternoon. The South African squad was crushed by the hosts England in their first match. The Bangladeshi side too faced a 95 runs defeat against India in their previous match. The Proteas will face Bangladesh in their second outing while it would be Bangladesh’s first face off in the World Cup. The Bangladeshi squad is facing some injuries and would look forward to coming out strong with it. Mashrafe Mortaza will be hoping to be fit to captain the team despite suffering a hamstring strain while bowling during their warm-up match against India while Tamim Iqbal, who did not play against India due to a thigh strain, is also expected to be fit. South Africa too is expected to make a couple of changes from the playing XI that was completely decimated by the English. David Miller was a surprise omission for the World Cup opener and could find himself in the team for the match against Bangladesh as a replacement for Hashim Amla who was hit on the helmet by a Jofra Archer bouncer. Chris Morris could also be a part of South Africa’s playing XI. We can hope for a neck to neck match as both the teams would be looking to bring their World Cup campaign back on track.
