After two back-to-back victories against West Indies and Sri Lanka, South Africa will be facing Bangladesh in must win situation to remain in contention for the semi-final spot. A win for South Africa will ensure both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka getting knocked out officially of T20 WC 2021 while a win for Bangladesh will ensure that England are the first team to qualify for T20 WC 2021 Semifinals. These two teams have met only once in T20 World Cup in the past during 2007 and South Africa came out victorious by 7-wicket margin. Shakib Al Hasan getting ruled out of the squad will also be a big setback for the Bangladesh side.
