The South Africa tour of Bangladesh will start with the 1st T20I to be played at Dhaka on July 5, 2015. The match start time is 1:00 p.m. local. 12:30 p.m. India time. 9:00 a.m. South Africa time.
The Bangladesh Cricket Team is currently at an all-time high. They first beat Pakistan at home and most recently they outwitted two-time World Champions India in the three-ODI series.
And now they clash with t20 specialists South Africa. It will be interesting to see how the hosts play the fast and elegant African players who are fit and raring to go.
On the other hand, the Bangladesh spin bowling that helped beat the Asian giants India and Pakistan will be a significant challenge for the Proteas.
In the last match these two teams played, Bangladesh was skittled out for a paltry 78 runs and exited from the World Cup.
South Africa is touring Bangladesh to play two T20 internationals, three-ODIs and two Tests.
The 2nd t20I will be played on July 7, 2015, and the 1st of the three-ODI series will start on July 10. The live scores can be checked at Cricinfo.com here.
