Bangladesh had an almost perfect day against the Proteas, but still, there were some concerns which might force captain Mashrafe Mortaza to make a change or two. For example, Mohammad Saifuddin bowled an impressive spell but his inconsistent through the day could get an opportunity to the more experienced Rubel Hossain. Other than this, no more changes can be expected in the Bangladesh XI from the previous match.
Nicholls, Southee is not fit yet
Tim Southee and Henry Nicholls both missed the first match against Sri Lanka due to injuries. According to the Cricbuzz report, both the players might need a bit more time to recover. Ish Sodhi, who wasn’t considered in the first match might still be sidelined with Mitchell Santner playing as the only spinner in the line-up. Rest of the line-up is unlikely to change.
Oval has seen 300+ scores in three of the four innings played at the venue during the course of the tournament. Even though a new pitch will be used, it is expected to flat and good for batting. An afternoon start means the ball won’t swing much in the first innings. The weather is expected to be good for the day, with no chances of rain. It might get a bit cold in the evening but most of the day will see a bright sun shining atop.
