South Africa beat Bangladesh by 149 runs | World Cup 2023
Early on, South Africa had some problems and lost two wickets. However, Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram’s combination helped them build their innings. It was a great performance by De Kock, who scored 174 runs in 101 balls, including six fours and four sixes, to make his third century of the World Cup. They scored 131 runs together for the third wicket, and another 142 runs with Heinrich Klaasen helped South Africa get over 300 runs. While South Africa’s batting has been strong throughout the event, the fact that they are now bowling better is a good sign. Their skipper, Temba Bavuma, was hurt at the last minute and had to miss a game against England, which makes people worry about his health.
If Bavuma is fully fit to play, the team management must also decide what to do with starter Reeza Hendricks. In his first ODI match in a while, Hendricks scored an impressive 85 runs without being out. This gave the team a strong foundation that Klaasen and others used to set a high score. On the other hand, Bangladesh hasn’t had much of an effect on the ICC World Cup 2023. They have lost three games to top teams like England, New Zealand, and India, even though they beat Afghanistan in the first game.
