SA vs Ban: Bangladesh outplayed South Africa to win their ICC World Cup 2019 opener by 21 runs. Bangladesh was better in all the three departments, be it fielding, batting, and bowling. That not only makes them deserving winners but also shows how South Africa, a better team on paper failed. This did not go down with fans who took to social media to troll South Africa. Most of them felt they are the official chokers of the world. South Africa was sloppy on-the-field and it always felt that they were not playing with a clear mind and the fear of losing lingered.
Here is how South Africa got trolled after loss:
Earlier in the day, Bangladesh rode on a record 142-run third wicket partnership between Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan to post their highest ever World Cup total of 330/6 in their cup opener against South Africa at The Oval.
This win will give Bangladesh immense confidence going into the later stages of the tournament. It was an impressive performance by the Bangladesh side. For now, South Africa have a lot of thinking to do after losing their first two games.
