Bangladesh Women are set to lock horns with South Africa Women in Match No.2 of the ICC Women’s World Cup, 2022 at the University Oval, Dunedin.

South Africa, led by Sune Luus, are a tad depleted as they don’t have all-rounder Dane van Niekerk in their ranks. Moreover, Lizelle Lee, one of their swashbuckling opening batters, will miss the opening game due to her delayed arrival after the birth of her first child.

The fact that they lost both their warm-up matches to India and England may not have helped their confidence one bit. However, they gave Mithali Raj’s Women in Blue a run for their money as they lost by only two runs. South Africa will be looking to get off to a winning start in the tournament.

Bangladesh, led by Nigar Sultana Joty, are set to make their 50-over World Cup debut. The Tigresses have quite a few players, including Salma Khatun, Rumana Ahmed, Nahida Akter and Jahanara Alam, who have all been prolific for the national team across formats.

Bangladesh lost to England by 109 runs in their first warm-up match. Thereafter, they made Pakistan work hard for their win in their second warm-up fixture. Pakistan, in the end, won the game by seven runs (DLS Method). Bangladesh will have a stiff task at hand when they face the Proteas.
