South Africa will be in action on April 7, Thursday against Bangladesh to play the second and final Test of the series which is a part of Bangladesh’s tour of South Africa 2022. The electrifying encounter is scheduled to commence from 1:30 PM IST at St.George’s Park in Port Elizabeth. As we head towards the final Test of the series, don't miss the opportunity to fill your pockets completely by the last match of the series. Therefore, I have gathered three of the top betting tips from the SA vs BAN Day 1 head-to-head encounter.
The home side will be riding with confidence after a comprehensive win over the visitors in the first morning of the final day of the 1st Test match. Following a dominating performance by spinner Keshav Maharaj and Simon Harmer, the Bengal Tigers were bowled out for the lowest total in an innings at Kingsmead. The two spinners managed to name 14 scalps to their name in total from the first Test. Keshav Maharaj was the headline maker by bagging seven wickets in the final innings after going wicketless in the first innings. Maharaj proved everyone and cemented his spot as the first choice spinner for Proteas. He also became their leading wicket-taker in the longest format of the game amongst spinners. Needing 274 runs, the visitors lost three wickets for just 11 runs at stumps on the penultimate day of the test. The visitors were quite competitive throughout the game until the fifth morning of the Test where they seemingly lost seven for 42 runs. Two of their batters managed to get to double digit scores while four of them failed to open their account. Heading into the final game of the tour, Bangladesh have a couple of positives to take from this game in the form of 21-year-old opener Mahmudul Hasan Joy who scored a century in the first innings and was the sole backbone for the visitors. The visitors would love to level the series with a win at Port Elizabeth while the Proteas will be aiming for a clean sweep. While we get ready for this cracker of a contest, let us take a deeper dive at the best betting tips from the SA vs BAN Day 1 match prediction.
I have handpicked the best team bet from the SA vs BAN Day 1 head-to-head encounter. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
The Proteas have kicked off the two match Test series in style and have taken a 1-0 lead after an emphatic win in the fifth morning. The Dean Elgar led side posted a mammoth total of 367 on the board batting first at Kingsmead. The hosts managed to hit a total of 50 fours in the 1st innings against Bangladesh. Bavuma who was the top scorer for his side smashed the ball out of the fence 12 times in his 93 run knock. The Proteas have averaged close to 26.33 fours per innings at home when they featured in a three match Test series against India recently. This sums up to 158 fours hit across three games. Prior to the start of the two match Test series against Bangladesh, the Proteas toured New Zealand wherein they smashed fours at an average of 27 per innings. Therefore, it is fair to say that the hosts will hit a good number of fours when they collide with Bangladesh later this week. The Proteas have hit 50, 21, 28, 30 fours in the first innings of the last five Tests at home. In the ongoing cycle of ICC World Test Championship, Temba Bavuma has hit the most number of fours (57) followed by skipper Dean Elgar (52) and Keegan Petersen (45). Therefore, we are weighing on South Africa to hit a good number of fours in the first innings of the second and the final Test against Bangladesh.
