Kennington Oval, London

This venue is quite supportive of the spinners, as it is a bit different from the traditional wickets of England. Spinners can bluff the batsmen with their variations on this ground. The team winning the toss might choose to bat first. Rain can hamper the game but a full game is expected on 2 April 2019 in Kennington Oval. Leg and offside boundaries are quite big in this ground.

There is concern over the fitness of Tamim Iqbal who got a fracture during nets, this makes his availability in question for the opening game of Bangladesh in World Cup 2019.
Skipper M Mortaza and Mustafizue Rehmann are struggling with their hamstring make another duo to be in doubt to play for Bangladesh.
Liton Das might make his way into the playing11 if Tamim Iqbal is not fit for this match.
Mushafiqur Rahim can be the skipper for Bangladesh in the 1st match if their on-duty captain is not available in this match due to his injury.
Hashim Amla suffered a bouncer of Jofra Archer on his helmet that made him retired hurt in the World Cup opening match against the host i-e- England. If that is the case David Miller can replace him in this match against Bangladesh.
Chris Morris might feature in this game who can replace D Pretorius.
Aiden Markram can also get his way back into the squad to increase the depth in the batting line up of South Africa.
South Africa: Quinton de Kock(w), Hashim Amla, Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis(c), Rassie van der Dussen, Jean-Paul Duminy, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi, David Miller, Chris Morris.

Quinton De Kock who scored a brilliant fifty against England makes a major player watch out in this World Cup. He is currently showcasing some brilliance with his willow, which is important from the perspective of South Africa. De Kock has got 4 (50+) score and 1 century in his last 5 games, shows how impactful this South African wicketkeeper is and can be for his side,
Kagiso Rabada has been the best bowler for South Africa since last 2 years. He is currently bowling at a faster pace of 140km/hr and above against every batsman. He has taken 10 wickets in his last 5 ODI matches makes him a perfect man to feature in your dream11 team.
Soumya Sarkar has got 3 (50+) score in his last 5 innings and has been a successful batsman for Bangladesh in the past couple of months. Currently, he is averaging above 40 in ODI’s in last 5 innings. He might be a key player to watch out in this match.
Mushfiqur Rahim (Last 5 innings – 90, 36, 35, 63, 32*)
Rahim has always been the backbone of Bangladesh batting order since last few years. He is playing well with his willow and is fit. In the absence of Tamim Iqbal, he will have a higher responsibility to score in the middle order for the team.
