South Africa will be aiming to keep the winning momentum going ahead of three big games lined up as they take on Bangladesh on Tuesday, October 24 in Mumbai. South Africa overcame the heat and extreme conditions to pummel England after the defending champions opted to bowl. That seemed like a grave mistake on England’s part given the margin of loss was the heaviest in Three Lions’ ODI history. Both South Africa and Bangladesh would want to bat first after they win the toss and the latter especially, with their campaign on the line as one more loss and they will stand eliminated.
Mumbai weather forecast
It is going to be yet another hot and sultry day at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai with zero per cent chance of rain on Tuesday, October 24. The first match of the tournament at the venue saw players sweating, cramping up, and getting fatigued in extreme weather conditions and it might be similar yet again on Tuesday. Jos Buttler made a blunder by choosing to bowl first a few days ago and with the defeat margin being so big it is likely that either of the captains who wins the toss will opt to bat, not only to save their 11 players from getting tired by the heat together but also to put pressure on the opposition after posting a big total. The temperatures are set to hover around a high of 37 degrees and a low of 27 degrees.
