SA vs BAN First Test Match (31 March 2022 – 4 April 2022) Winner Prediction :
According to our prediction Bangladesh will win the first test match of Bangladesh tour of South Africa 2022. South Africa is missing many of their key players in this test including Aiden Markram, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, and Rassie Van der Dussan as all of them are playing in IPL 15 right now and their absence will hurt Proteas chances of winning.
