The ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League 2020–2023 action resumes with the first ODI match between South Africa and Bangladesh in Centurion on Friday. Besides the three ODIs, Bangladesh national cricket team will also play two Test matches during the tour of South Africa 2022. The South Africa vs Bangladesh series will be telecast live in India.

An ODI series in a T20 World Cup year smells off-season, but the ICC has ensured that each team plays its share of other formats too, and the international body has astutely introduced, or rather formulated a qualifier for the next ODI World Cup, just like the ongoing World Test Championship. Meaning, players remain busy all throughout the year. Shakib Al Hasan knows it too well.
Then, there is the all-encompassing Indian Premier League (IPL), which starts its 2022 edition on March 26. Meaning, players who have contracts with IPL teams are already in a dilemma - national duty or IPL? South Africa have in fact named as many as eight IPL-bound players for the ODIs. But initial reports claimed that Proteas stars will only skip the Test series.
In that respect, Bangladesh are fortunate. Only Mustafizur Rahman was picked during the IPL 2022 mega auction. Shakib got the snub.
