South Africa will be hosting Bangladesh for a three-match ODI series followed by a two-match Test series. The first of the three ODIs will be hosted at the SuperSport Park in Centurion on March 18, Saturday. Another ODI series would mean yet another chance of making money and that is exactly why I have managed to accumulate three of the top betting tips from the SA vs BAN 1st ODI head-to-head battle.
South Africa and Bangladesh have not played a lot of 50-over cricket in the history of this game. But we can still fairly claim that South Africa have played the dominant role when they lock horns with Bangladesh in the longer format of white-ball cricket. The last time they played against each other was back in the ICC World Cup 2019 at The Oval in London, England. Bangladesh were pretty brilliant in that game outclass the Proteas by 21 runs in the end of that World Cup fixture. South Africa managed to beat India earlier this year 3-0 at home and have proven once again that they are a tough side to beat at their backyard. Bangladesh, on the other hand, managed to defeat Afghanistan 2-1 in the recently concluded ODI series. Expect plenty of fireworks during this three-match ODI series, but until then let us focus on the best betting tips from the SA vs BAN 1st ODI head-to-head encounter.
While the team markets usually make us money but considering South Africa playing at home, the odds are ridiculously low. Therefore, we will have to make do with the player bets that have come our way already from the South Africa vs Bangladesh game.
I am going to start with South Africa’s most consistent player in white-ball cricket at the moment and yes I am indeed talking about Rassie Van der Dussen. You will have to believe me if I tell you that even after 32 ODIs and 1267 runs, Van der Dussen sports an unbelievable ODI average of 74.52! The last time South Africa took on Bangladesh, the crafty midd-order batter scored 41 runs and that was his only game against the Bangla Tigers. He has played 17 out of those 32 ODIs back at home and has scored 797 runs and he enjoys a staggering average of 113.85 with the bat. In 9 matches under the captaincy of Temba Bavuma, Van der Dussen has scored 539 runs at a jaw-dropping batting average of 107.80. In the first match of any ODI series, the right-handed batsman has been dismissed only twice in 6 innings and therefore he sports a batting average of 237.00! Pari Match is offering fantastic odds of 1.87 for Rassie Van der Dussen to score over 30.5 runs in the SA vs BAN 1st ODI match prediction.
The South African 50-over fairly young prodigal batter Janneman Malan is my next pick from the South Africa vs Bangladesh prediction. He may not have gotten a lot of opportunities to prove his mettle but I can assure that whenever he has gotten one, Malan has grabbed it with open hands. Janneman Malan enjoys an ODI batting average of 69.00 after 14 matches into his 50-over career. The right-handed batsman has played 8 matches on home soil and has added 336 runs at an average of 48.00. Interestingly, the right hander has also played 8 matches under the captaincy of Bavuma and has racked up 452 runs at an outstanding average of 75.33. While opening the batting for the Proteas, in 11 ODI matches, Malan has amassed 752 runs at an incredible batting average of 83.55. Pari Match is offering odds of 1.87 for Janneman Malan to score over 32.5 runs in the SA vs BAN 1st ODI match prediction.
In a dramatic turn of events, Bangladesh superstar all-rounder Shakib AL Hasan will now be a part of the Bangladesh ODI and Test squads against South Africa. Shakib has played a lot of international cricket in his career up until now. In that resume of his, he has added 6660 runs in 218 ODI games at an average of 37.62. The last time Bangladesh took on South Africa in the ODIs, Shakib Al Hasan finished with a score of 75 runs. That knock helped Bangladesh beat South Africa in an ICC World Cup game in 2019 in England. The southpaw has played 14 matches against South Africa and has scored 397 runs at an average of 33.08. In 5 matches on the South African soil, Shakib has managed to add 165 runs to his tally at an average of 33.00. Under the leadership of Tamim Iqbal, Shakib has maintained an average of 33.70. Pari Match is offering odds of 1.87 for Shakib Al Hasan to score over 27.5 runs in the SA vs BAN 1st ODI match prediction.
