Bangladesh were reduced to nothing in Tests. South Africa had absolutely thrashed them. When Mushfiqur Rahim’s century guided Bangladesh to 278 for 9 in the first ODI, they thought a good show by bowlers could revive their reputation. None of that happened. Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock blazed away to a record 282-run opening stand. Can Bangladesh bounce back? They did win the last bilateral series between them in 2015, but that was in Bangladesh. The live streaming of the second ODI will be available in India on Sony LIV, while the live telecast will be available on Sony Six. In Bangladesh, the streaming will be available on gazitv.com, along with the live telecast on Gazi TV. In South Africa, the live streaming is available on SuperSport Live, along with the live telecast on SuperSport. You can also follow CricketCountry s ball-by-ball commentary here.

Bangladesh will hope for Shakib Al Hasan to come good this time. They had missed him in the Test series. Injuries to Tamim Iqbal and Mustafizur Rahman have dampened their hope further. Meanwhile, South Africa seem to be on the right track for the 2019 World Cup under new coach Ottis Gibson. The bigger threat to Bangladesh AB de Villiers has not batted yet on this tour.
