After a loss in their first match against the hosts England, South Africa will hope to turn things around when they take on the Asian side Bangladesh.
We take a look at five players who will be tipped to make an impact on the match’s result.
The hard-hitting wicketkeeper-batsman of Bangladesh team Mushfiqur Rahim will be a very important asset for his team. As he has the capability to play well in the major events. He already has scored 6 centuries in his ODI career and also has been quite consistent in terms of his batting skills. He is the second highest run getter in the world cup for Bangladesh and has scored 4 fifties.

The 30-year-old South African middle order batsmen proved his batting in the first match against England by scoring a half-century. He would be looking to contribute bigger than this in the upcoming matches. He already has a very good batting average of 80.60 which proves his stability on the crease.
After bowling quite well in the first match Rabada will look to hit the spot and trouble the Bangladesh batting order in the next game. The pacer would try his best to pickup as many wickets as he can which will help his team win the game.
All eyes will be on David Miller. As the 29-year-old hard-hitting batsmen weren’t selected in the first match. So there is a possibility of his selection in the second game for sure. As Miller has a capability to score under pressure and hit those massive sixes out of the park.
The 33-year-old was the important performer for the team in the last world cup. As he scored an important match-winning ton against England in the first innings which in turn confirmed Bangladesh’s spot in the Quarterfinals of 2015 world cup. This time also plenty of expectations will be on him as he has the ability to bat well in pressure games and take the side home with a win. The one more important thing to point out is that Mahmudullah has a batting average of 56.71 the highest for a Bangladesh player in World Cup games which makes him more valuable towards the team.
