South Africa vs Bangladesh World Cup Highlights 2023 – 24th October

Pitch and weather: Expect another hot afternoon with temperatures in the mid-30 celsius with high humidity. Jos Buttler conceded he had perhaps made a mistake by fielding first in such conditions on Saturday, so expect the team that wins the toss to bat first on a flat Wankhede pitch and wear out the opposition by the time the chase begins.

South Africa vs Bangladesh Highlights 2023, ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 23rd Match, Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, Tuesday 24-10-2023.

Markram says they will be “trying to approach it in a similar way to the England game”. Lizaad Williams is the man replacing Ngidi, only his second ODI and a World Cup debut, too.
Shakib, meanwhile, declares himself “fully fit”, and he’s the only change to the Bangladesh XI, with Towhid Hridoy sitting out. “I don’t mind bowling first, if we can restrict them to a reasonable total hopefully we can chase them down,” he says. “We have to play our best cricket.”

Post Match Presentation

Shakib Al Hasan:

“I thought we bowled well for 35 overs, took a few wickets and going at five an over. From thereon they kicked on, especally Quinton, he batted really well and the way Klaasen finished it off. On a ground like this it can happen like that. Been some talk about Mushfiq and Mahmud batting up the order. The top five who are not scoring need to score more and then we can get more out of them. At the moment India, NZ and SA are the three teams that look like they can win the title. But anything can happen, a long way to go. Lot to learn and a lot to play for. We want to finish, if not semi-finalists then five or six. We can still do it, I’m hopeful we can come back stronger.”

Aiden Markram:

“Tough to grind it out to the end, but we had to get ten wickets. Still a great day. [Finishing off with ball] Sometimes we find ourselves in two minds, whether to go death or not. The guys have worked quite hard on their plans. Mahmudullah got in and played very well. We went death and there were some good signs, even if one or two were missed. [Batting] What Quinny did was superb and then Klaasen walks in and smashes it. Everyone approaches it differently but it gels quite nicely. We keep striving to put in big performances. [Chasing a worry] Not necessarily, we had a chat before. It’s just the way things have gone. The more you win batting first the more you lean that way. But once we get one chase under the belt, and the blueprint, then hopefully we’ll be a good team at chasing. [Ngidi] Hopefully he can recover well over the next couple of days and be ready for Pakistan.”

Quinton de Kock is Player of the Match for his 174 off 140:

“I was a bit more tired than satisfied. Great day out, everyone played their part. Nice to get points on the board. [Change of WC fortunes?] Not too sure, first time inexperience… it’s just happening, I guess. [150th cap] I was a bit nervous this morning, don’t normally get nervous at all. Had a bit of fun, great to get two points. [Klaasen] Been amazing, I need some of the juice he’s having. He’s been special, for every team he’s played for. Taking the tournament by storm.”
