The matches keep coming thick and fast at this World Cup, and the 23rd match of the tournament will see South Africa play against Bangladesh at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The match, like most of the other Group Stage games, will take place on the 24th of October and is scheduled to start at 09:30 GMT. Both sides enter this match in completely different form, and below you can find out who I think will go on and win the match. I have also given you the best odds from top Irish betting sites.

💯 South Africa v Bangladesh Betting Odds

Cricket betting is increasing in popularity in the Emerald Isle, and one of the reasons for this is because of the wide range of markets that are on offer. Below you can find top betting odds for three markets that I am tempted to place bets on for this South Africa vs Pakistan match:

Top Batsman Odds: South Africa v Bangladesh

Entertainment value should be emphasised when betting on sports, and you will struggle to find a more entertaining market than cricket's top batsman. With such a market, you are trying to predict the player that will score the most runs for their team, so you get to experience every ball that they face. Below I have selected three batsmen from South Africa and Bangladesh that I believe have a good chance of winning this market, and provided the top batsman odds currently available:

South Africa:

Quinton de Kock4.104.10
Rassie van der Dussen4.304.30
Aiden Markram5.255.20


Liton Das5.005.00
Shakib Al Hasan4.604.60
Mushfiqur Rahim5.505.50

Top Wicket Taker Odds: South Africa v Bangladesh

If you are unsure as to who to bet on when it comes to a team's top batsman, then another equally fun cricket market is the top wicket taker one. With this bet, you need to predict the bowler who will pick up the most wickets, so if you do not support one of the teams, you can increase the entertainment levels by supporting a bowler instead. Below you can find three potential top wicket taker candidates from both teams and their current top wicket taker odds:

South Africa:

Kagiso Rabada3.603.60
Marco Jansen4.204.20
Gerald Coetzee4.804.80


Shoriful Islam3.703.70
Mustafizur Rahman3.703.70
Shakib Al Hasan4.204.30

🔍 South Africa v Bangladesh Match Winner Prediction

When it comes to the match winner for this South Africa v Bangladesh match, I cannot look beyond a win for South Africa. Yes, they had a blip in their defeat to the Netherlands, who seem to have their number at big international competitions, but they put that match firmly behind them by thumping England - they notched up 399 runs and then bowled England out for 170 to give them a massive 229 run win.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, succumbed to their third defeat in four matches at the hands of India, although nobody realistically expected them to win this match. Bangladesh's hopes of making it through to the final four are hanging on by a thread, and a defeat against South Africa will see them all but eliminated from the competition.

South Africa have a powerful batting unit and a really talented bowling unit, so I struggle to see Bangladesh causing them any true issues. Thus, my prediction for this match is a relatively comfortable win for the Proteas.

✔️ South Africa v Bangladesh CWC Betting Tips

I am now going to provide you with some sports betting advice for this South Africa vs Bangladesh:

Match Winner: South Africa to Win

South Africa and Bangladesh have played a total of 24 ODI matches against each other, and the Proteas lead the head-to-head with 18 wins to Bangladesh's 6. So, in order to win this match, Bangladesh will have to overcome both history and form - something that I think is beyond them. However, they will draw confidence from the fact that they won the last time that they met at a Cricket World Cup.

South Africa might have lost to the Netherlands, but when they are at the top of their game, they are extremely hard to beat due to their quality batting and bowling units. England entered this competition as one of the favourites for the title, and South Africa barely broke a sweat against them - okay, they did because it was 35 degrees, but you get what I mean.

I do not think that Bangladesh have a bad team, but I just feel that there is a gulf in class between the two squads. If South Africa play how they did against the Dutch, then they could get turned over, but this is not something that I see happening.

The odds for a South Africa win are short, but those who want to bet on the match winner market can find odds of 1.25 at LegendPlay.

South Africa's Top Batsman Winner: Rassie van der Dussen to Win

With the batting quality that South Africa have, it is tricky to pick a top batsman, but I am going to put my money on Rassie van der Dussen. I am always impressed when I see him bat as he never seems to get flustered, even when he is not scoring any runs - he trusts his ability to catch up with some big fours and sixes. He was in fine form against England in their last match, and I am backing him to carry this form into this Bangladesh game.

If you want to put money on van der Dussen to top score for South Africa, then Dachbet-Sports are currently offering odds of 4.30.

Bangladesh's Top Batsman Winner: Liton Das to Win

Bangladesh's batting unit has not really hit their heights in this World Cup, but one batsman who has is Liton Das. He has been in fine form throughout the competition, and his 66 against India was another fine knock by the talented opener. I think he will like the pace on the ball from the South African seamers, and the fact that he gets to bat in the Powerplay should give him plenty of scoring opportunities.

If you want to put money on Das to top score for Bangladesh, then TonyBet Sports are currently offering odds of 5.00.

South Africa's Top Wicket Taker: Gerald Coetzee to Win Top Wicket Taker

The 23-year-old has only played nine ODI matches for South Africa, but in these matches, he has shown us that he has the skills and temperament to be around for a long period of time. He has picked up 18 wickets at an average of 26.88, and against England, he picked up the key wickets of Brook and Buttler. He can be a little expensive at times, but keep in mind that the number of wickets is the main determining factor.

Those who want to put money on Coetzee to take the most wickets for South Africa can find odds of 4.80 at Dachbet Sports.

Bangladesh's Top Wicket Taker: Shakib Al Hasan to Win Top Wicket Taker

Shakib Al Hasan has been a bit quiet on the batting and bowling front for Bangladesh, and he will be eager to contribute more to his country. I think this match could be the one where we finally see the skills that we all know this quality all-rounder has. I can see him causing the South African batters some issues with his spin variation, so I would recommend backing him to be the top wicket taker for Bangladesh.

If you want to go with my advice, then TonyBet Sports are currently offering odds of 4.30 for him to do so.
