This series will be very crucial for both sides and especially for Bangladesh because the Proteas have a crazy winning record on their home soil. Even the big team like India could not win over them in South African pitches. This will be a bigger stage for tigers to prove their capabilities in the longest formats.
On the other hand, South Africa will look to continue their dominance on their home soil and these are very crucial games for them — because they are eager to prove their talent in the WTC cycle and they will aim to finish at the top of the table.
