Bangladesh's batting depth 

Against one of the best bowling attacks in the world, Bangladesh showed off their skills with the bat as they made 330 in their 50 overs. After Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim scored 142 runs, players like Mahmudullah, Mossadek Hossain took apart South Africa's bowlers, which was aided by some listless fielding. In the last 44 overs, Bangladesh made 54 runs - which made all the difference in the end. 

The Tigers' win highlights the batting depth that they have, and the fact that they scored the highest World Cup score thus far in this edition against a good attack makes them a much feared team. 

Injury concerns increase for South Africa

Ngidi walked back to the pavilion without completing his quota of overs with the ball with a hamstring injury. The bowler was out injured for the IPL as well, and with Dale Steyn still recovering South Africa have plenty of problems to solve before they face Indian on 5th. Hashim Amla, one of the most talented players, is struggling for form, and if the team is unable to get their act together, they might slip even further.
