On Friday, July 10, 2015, Bangladesh will play South Africa at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. After the guests displayed World-class cricket in the 2-Match T20 Series, the hosts are visibly low on confidence. Well, obviously, this is not what the Bangla Tigers might have expected after creating history by beating the likes of Pakistan and India. However, South Africa had the better of challenging conditions to outperform home team and clinch a comprehensive victory in the series. Now, begins the 3 ODI series from tomorrow, July 10.
South Africa beat Bangladesh very convincingly by hefty margins in both the matches, while the ODI and Test matches are yet to be played. Now one thing is for sure that the team Bangladesh is very much aware of the tough task ahead against one of the best cricketing sides in the World. Players such as David Miller, Hashim Amla and Tahir have the skills to do damage to the game plan of hosts. But, a major setback for the team would be absence of skipper Villiers whose place is temporarily taken over by Hashim Amla. He is a game changer is a fact known to all, but that does not leave any room for the fact that Bangladeshi side has an edge.
Going by South Africa’s superb knocks, it is only obvious to proclaim them to be the winners, but underestimating hosts may not be too wise an option at least not after they have emerged from being minnows to the ones with a powerful game plan. Here’s highlighting a few betting odds, tips and predictions for Bangladesh vs South Africa 1st ODI.
It’s been long since South Africa toured Bangladesh and they have already proved their supremacy in the game by beating hosts in what could be addressed as humiliating losses. The opening partnership of 95 runs by AB de Villers and Kock was the major highlight of the T20 matches. They were then very well supported by Eddie Leie. To add to the woes of hosts, their fielding was hugely disappointing.
In the recent past, Bangla Tigers have put forth some brilliant performances at home, so it is not too easy to beat them. Moreover, they have the backing of Shakib Al Hasan, Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim who are the eminent players to watch out for in the upcoming matches. But, the spinners have been comparatively inconsistent in the previous 2 matches. Even though Bangladesh need to be on their toes to beat guests but, it can not be completely disregarded.
Mortaza and co are rising high in the game, but it will still take them some time before actually being a threat to the top class teams as South Africa. So, expert verdict places high betting odds in favor South Africa. And, this is what the top bookmakers sites are suggesting-
Bangladesh- 4.4, South Africa 1.26
