South Africa set to bounce back, Bangladesh up for challenge
New Delhi: Bangladesh will face South Africa (SA) on Sunday at the Kennington Oval in London for the fifth match in the ICC World Cup 2019.
SA will be looking to overturn their defeat in their WC opener against England. Meanwhile, Bangladesh will be facing a big challenge in the form of South Africa.
While it can be expected that South Africans will have learnt about the conditions, the same could not be said about Bangladesh. Even in that defeat, South Africa showed that they have the resources to justify their tag as one of the favourites behind England, India and Australia.
Bangladesh will be playing their first match of the World Cup as they look to better their run to the quarter-finals in the 2015 edition.
