SA vs BAN Dream11 Prediction: The first test victory for South Africa at Durban was marred with the looming controversy of umpiring decisions. Regardless of what side one stands on, the Proteas spin twins, Keshav Maharaj and Simon Harmer turned the game on to get the hosts yet another victory in the longest format and consolidated their position in the World Test Championship ranking. The attention now turns to Port Elizabeth.

Across their last 10 tests, Bangladesh has only won two with their most recent win coming in the series against New Zealand. For the Proteas, the win in the first test was their sixth win in their last 10 tests.

SA vs BAN Pitch Report

The pitch in Port Elizabeth is favourable for batsmen at the start. As the match progresses, the wicket starts deteriorating with the sun beaming down on it. The average first innings score at St George’s Park is 307 while that in the fourth innings is a paltry 159. This shows an even contest between bat and ball, and the results back it up brilliantly. In the 31 tests at the venue, 13 have been won by teams batting first. There have been 5 draws and 13 tests have been won by teams bowling first.

  • Keshav Maharaj and Simon Harmer will once again be leading a relatively inexperienced bowling attack.
  • Dean Elgar, Temba Bavuma, and Keegan Petersen will have to do the bulk of the scoring for SA to be in control.
  • If there’s any help for the quicks, Duanne Olivier will look to be the bowling leader.

Dean Elgar Stats in Tests

One of the most consistent performers in the longest format, Dean Elgar has taken up the mantle of captaincy and transformed the side. Fifties in both innings in the first test, he will once again hold the key for South Africa’s batting unit. He has reached 75 test matches and scored at an average of 39 in conditions that don’t favour batsmen, which shows his quality.

Temba Bavuma Stats in Tests

The second most experienced player in the lineup, Temba Bavuma reached a personal milestone in the first test, playing his 50th game. The gritty right-hand batsman can grind out an inning, a factor that could be handy in the second test. His score of 93 in the first innings of the first test was crucial in setting up the platform for SA’s win.

Keshav Maharaj Stats in Tests

The MOTM from the first game, Keshav Maharaj has been a big part of South Africa’s recent success in test cricket. He has always been available, bowling long spells and reaped the rewards in the second innings picking up 7 wickets for just 24 runs. He stands 9 wickets away from reaching 150 test scalps.

  • Bangladesh will have to bat long if they are to level the series.
  • Shakib Al Hasan looks likely to come back with Yasir Ali likely to give way for the star all-rounder.
  • The bowlers, especially the quicks will have to be more consistent to pick quick wickets and win the test for their nation.

    Mominul Haque Stats in Tests

Bangladesh’s skipper is among their best players of pace, something that will hold the key on a wicket that has help for fast bowlers. He averages over 40 in the 50 tests that he has played, showing he has the technique and the mindset to score big.

Mushfiqur Rahim Stats in Tests

Another batting mainstay for the visitors, Bangladesh tends to do well in the games Mushfiqur Rahim scores big. For them to level the series, he will have to add to his tally of 24 fifties and 7 test hundreds. He has the game and temperament to negotiate hostile spells and can also play a counter-attacking knock should the opportunity present itself. He is only 120 runs away from reaching 5000 test runs as well.

Mehidy Hasan Stats in Tests

The counterpart to Keshav Maharaj in the Bangladeshi ranks, Mehidy Hasan was the pick of their bowlers in the first test. He picked up 3 wickets in each of the two innings and will once again be the man around which the quick bowlers revolve. The off-spinner has been a mainstay in the side and it won’t be a surprise to see him on the wickets once again.
