SA vs BAN Prediction: England took on Sri Lanka yesterday and made it four wins out of four. Put in to bat first, England posted 163/4 despite a shaky start. Jos Buttler hit his maiden international T20 hundred studded with six boundaries and six maximums. In reply, Sri Lanka were bundled out for 137 with the English spinners playing a key role.
South Africa now clash against Bangladesh in the afternoon game at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. South Africa have two wins in three while Bangladesh have lost all their games so far. With England through to the next round, South Africa and Australia are vying for the second spot in Group 1.

SA vs BAN Head to Head: South Africa have won all six games versus Bangladesh in T20Is.
SA – 70%
BAN – 30%
South Africa are the firm favorites for this encounter. They have won twice and lost the game versus Australia narrowly. Bangladesh would be devoid of any confidence having lost all their games. The injury to Shakib Al Hasan further dents their chances. The betting sites also favour the Proteas.
Bet365: SA: 1.30; BAN: 3.50
Kagiso Rabada might not be the threat he is with the red ball but is still a very lethal bowler. He has 43 wickets in 28 innings at an economy of 8.5
We expect Rassie van der Dussen to continue his good form against Bangladesh. He has looked the best of the Proteas batsmen. He has 879 runs in 29 innings at an average of 36.
Mustafizur Rahman is a must-have for SA vs BAN Dream11 teams. The Fizz bowls critical overs at the death which always gives him the chance to pick up wickets. He has 84 wickets in 58 innings at an economy of 7.6.
SA Playing XI
Quinton de Kock (wk), Temba Bavuma (c), Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Tabraiz Shamsi
BAN Playing XI
Mohammad Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das (wk), Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah (capt), Afif Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Shoriful Islam, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman
The pitch in Abu Dhabi is bowler-friendly. Batsmen should make the most of the powerplay. 150-160 should be a fighting total on this wicket. Chasing should be the way forward as most of the games are being won by the team batting second.
If SA bats first: 150-160
If BAN bats first: 140-150
Abu Dhabi will have clear blue skies and a bright sunny day ahead. The temperature in the morning hours is around 27/28 degrees Celsius. It will gradually heat up and the maximum temperature by mid-day will be 32 degrees Celsius and will remain so for most of the match duration. However with the sun shining hard, light winds, and humidity in the range of 40-50 %, it will feel like 36-37 degrees. The playing conditions will therefore continue to be tough in the afternoon hours.

ALL-ROUNDERS: D Pretorius, A Markram, M Hasan
