Live streaming of South Africa women vs Bangladesh women will be available on Disney+ Hotstar at 3:30 AM IST.

With stalwarts such as Mignon du Preez, Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail each now into their 30s, the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 could represent the final chance for South Africa’s settled squad to go all the way and captain Sune Luus is determined to seize it.

However, South Africa will be missing their hard-hitting opener with Lizelle Lee against Bangladesh as she is still in quarantine following a delayed arrival due to the birth of her first child. Tazmin Brits is likely to open the batting with Laura Wolvaardt against Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, South Africa didn’t have the kind of preparation they wanted losing both their warm-up games against England and India. While the Proteas fell short by two runs against India, England got better of Luus and Co. by six wickets.

On the other hand, Nigar Sultana will make history as she becomes the first to lead Bangladesh in a 50-over ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup match. The 24-year-old Sultana will lead an experienced Bangladesh side with Rumana Ahmed (44 ODIs), Fargana Hoque (43), Jahanara Alam (42) and Salma Khatun (39) forming the core of the team.

Bangladesh secured qualification for ICC Women's World Cup 2022 thanks to their ICC Ranking after the Qualifiers were cancelled due to the Omicron outbreak in Africa. Bangladesh are currently ranked sixth in the world, and hopes are high in the camp.

Defeats against England and Pakistan, the latter by just seven runs, in the warm-up matches have shown Bangladesh where they need to improve and Sultana is fully aware of the importance of a strong start against a side they have faced regularly over the years – though not since 2018.

Head-To-Head

Bangladesh have played 17 games against South Africa in ODIs winning just twice. Both of Bangladesh’s wins came at home in 2012 and 2017.
