South Africa vs Bangladesh, 1st ODI Match Live Cricket Score Streaming, Ball By Ball 15th October 2017: -Just one week after slumping to Test defeat now the team Bangladesh have an opportunity to establish themselves in the today match which is all set to take place between South Africa and Bangladesh. This is the turn of Bangladesh to be optimistic in this match. In the much awaited today match South Africa vs Bangladesh there are some crucial players who were absent during the Test series. As Bangladesh’s most stable batsman, Shakib Al Hasan will be joining the Test series and he scores around 200.
Shakib Al Hasan is known as one of the most key Bangladesh players at the same time he is most reliable batsman too in the abroad countries and this is the conditions were served in a warm-up match in Bloemfontein on Thursday.
South Africa vs Bangladesh, 1st ODI Match
For Shakib Al Hasan the top-scored with 68 in his first knock of the tour. Mashrafe Mortaza’s comeback will add the sort of bowling muscle that Faf du Plessis felt Bangladesh partiality in the Test series. But the ODI captain’s presence should also free Mushfiqur Rahim in this test series as the wicketkeeper-batsman.
The guesswork over Mushfiqur’s future as Test captain still lingers, and this one is the new format which gives an opportunity to get back to his natural game.
Another positive for the team Bangladesh is that the team South Africa’s largely second-string pace attack. With some players like Vernon Philander, Morne Morkel, Dale Steyn, and Chris Morris all out injured, only Kagiso Rabada remains from the first-choice line-up.
Rabada’s presence was more than enough in the attack of the second Test and took 10 wickets, but the hope for Bangladesh will be that another week in South Africa that gives batsmen to adopt something.
One final cause for optimism is that the team Bangladesh already received success for some time. While now the team is already beating the big teams in Test matches, their form in ODIs has been improving rapidly since the 2015 World Cup. It was the period when the team Bangladesh has won a series against South Africa.
In the Champions Trophy in June, there was a competitive match; the highlight was the Bangladesh marked a huge comeback against the New Zealand in conditions that suited fast bowlers.
However, South Africa will start as overwhelming favorites. Their batting line-up is stronger and the team Australia is also having AB de Villiers as captain.
The team Australia is also ready for their 2019 World Cup, and everyone will be eager to show new coach Ottis Gibson will be going to perform how much for the team and cricket.
Bangladesh should be more competitive now after ODI match in this Test matches and series, but still, it will be tough for the team Bangladesh to be on top of the match.
When: 15 October 2017, 10:00 AM Local Time; 13:30 IST
Venue: The Diamond Oval, Kimberley
Expectations: Kimberley is the slower pitches in the country, and he is good for the domestic matches. It will be worth to see him in the front of South Africa and it is unlikely to be any great bounce and pace, with the game expected to be a relatively low-scoring affair on this broad light day.
South Africa: Faf du Plessis suggested earlier this week that South Africa’s match will begin with the probable XI and those players are very different from the other Champions Trophy’s players.
There will be some experimentation in the series, but the cricketer Proteas will look to tried and tested formulas for the first game.
Probable XI: AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Wayne Parnell/Dane Paterson, Kagiso Rabada, Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), Faf du Plessis (capt) and Imran Tahir.
Bangladesh: An ankle injury to Mustafizur Rahman can bring a big blow for Bangladesh and the left-arm seamer can disappear from the opening ODI so the rest of the series is skeptical.
Tamim Iqbal is will not recover from his thigh injury in time as per the expectations, leaving Soumya Sarkar and Imrul Kayes as the likely openers. Sabbir Rahman could move up the order [post he scores such a half-century in that game.
Probable XI: Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rahman, Mehedi Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Rubel Hossain, Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk) and Mustafizur Rahman.
South Africa (From): Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock(w), Faf du Plessis(c), Farhaan Behardien, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Temba Bavuma, AB de Villiers, David Miller, Jean-Paul Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir and Dane Paterson.
