South Africa are set to meet Bangladesh in their upcoming game of the World T20 Cup on 2nd November 2021. Both the teams have a contrasting build up as they face each other. While Bangladesh have failed to register even a single win in the Super 12 & are out of the race to make it to the semi-finals, a win here for South Africa would further strengthen their chances to qualify for the semis in the Group of Death. It’ll be interesting to see how the Proteas aim to dominate the Bangladeshi side in their upcoming clash.
Although the South African side started off the Super 12 with a defeat against Australia, they’ve made a strong comeback in the tournament. Wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen are the top batting picks from the side and can add to some fantasy points. Additionally, all-rounders Dwaine Pretorious and Aiden Markram have been the most impressive performers in the tournament with the latter being a dependable captain choice. Lastly, Tabraiz Shamsi and Anrich Nortje are in great form, which makes them the must-have bowlers in one’s fantasy team.
While the Bangladeshi side were already struggling in the Super 12s, Shakib Al Hasan’s absence has further aggravated the woes for the side. Although, they are out of the race to make it to the semi-finals, the Liton Das-led side will play their remaining games to salvage their pride and will hope to win the upcoming matches. Mushfiqur Rahim and Naim Sheikh are the top batting picks from the side and their contribution will be crucial for Bangladesh to win the game. Besides, Mahedi Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman’s contribution from their respective departments can fetch some fantasy points.
