The 5th match of the ICC World Cup 2019 will be played between South Africa and Bangladesh at the Oval.

The match starts  at 10:30  Local (09:30 GMT).

South Africa would want to erase the memories of the World Cup opener after losing to England by 104 runs at the Kennington Oval in London. Barring half-centuries from Rassie van der Dussen and Quinton de Kock, the Proteas’ batting looked short of gas. Now at the same venue, Faf du Plessis and Co have the chance of making amends. They are now scheduled to play the Mashrafe Mortaza-led Bangladesh.

The Tigers, on the other hand, lost the only warm-up match they played against India. Moreover, a few of their players including their skipper are nursing injuries and that would be a matter of concern for them. Mashrafe’s men came into the mega event on the back of their maiden multi-nation victory in Ireland. However, the competition for them is expected to be higher than what they had in that series.


ICC World Cup 2019 South Africa vs Bangladesh Pitch Report & Weather Report:

The pitch in the warm-ups produced runs and even in the first match, the hosts, England, were able to put 311 on the board. Nevertheless, the track has also assisted the fast bowlers to a large extent. As per previous records, the strip at the venue favours the team, batting second and teams may field first after winning the toss despite the result of the first game.

There is a minor chance of rain in the afternoon, but it won’t be detrimental. The atmosphere will be nice and cool with the temperature, hovering around 23 degrees Celsius. The humidity will be in the 40s and 50s. A significant amount of clouds will be there during the course of the encounter, however, won’t convert into a downpour.
