This will be the third game of the super league Quarter final. The hosts South Africa were hit hard by their weakness against spin as Afghanistan crushed them in the opening encounter. But they have performed well to overcome that defeat and qualify for the quarters. Bryce Parsons has been the key player for them and the skipper has performed well be it with the bat or the ball. On the other hand the Bangladesh team who were one of the dark horses to win the tournament have done a pretty decent work so far and finished at the top of their group table. One can expect a competitive game when these two clash tomorrow.
