South Africa vs Bangladesh World Cup 2019 Match Preview – The World Cup’s opening match this year was not favourable to South Africa, as they’ve lost it against England.
The team will thus hope to win their first match of the tournament by defeating Bangladesh today at Kennington Oval in London.
On the other hand, the Asian team looks in no mood to give away an easy victory to the Proteas. Despite having weaker players in comparison to South Africa, Bangladesh has got all the powers to turn away any game in their favour.
Therefore, it’ll be interesting to see, which team will beat the other one to get some numbers added in their points table.
Here are the match preview, Dream 11 fantasy league teams, pitch report, weather conditions, our power picks, and all the details of today’s match.
The 5th match of the ICC World Cup 2019 of South Africa vs Bangladesh will be hosted by the Kennington Oval, London.
