South Africa have won 3 out of their 4 matches so far in the ICC World Cup 2023. In all the victories, they batted first and put up massive scores, twice beyond 300 (one 399) and once beyond 400. The biggest upset happened when they faced the Netherlands. It was the only time they chased the score and failed by 38 runs.

Bangladesh, on the contrary, started with a win against Afghanistan but ended up being on the losing side in the next 3 matches. This is going to be a must-win for them if they still want to be in contention to reach the semi-finals.

South Africa vs Bangladesh head-to-head records

South Africa and Bangladesh have played 24 ODIs so far, and the Proteas have won 18 of those. What will encourage the Bangla Tigers is that, in the last 4 encounters between these two, Bangladesh have won thrice.

The surface at Wankhede Stadium is designed to accommodate both pacers and spinners, with a preference for players who can swing the ball in the early phases of the game. Spin bowlers frequently find their niche as the competition progresses. Meanwhile, batters can score heavily if they exercise restraint and time it well.

So far, 24 ODIs have been played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. On 13 occasions the team batting first won the match while the team batting second won it on 11 occasions. So, it seems to be quite a balanced affair over here.

South Africa played England here on October 21 and put up 399 while batting first. The Proteas won it by 229 runs.
