Pothchefstroom will be the venue where South Africa and Bangladesh lock horns in the first odi.Bangladesh would want to get their game to the next level since this is a 50 over format. With South Africa losing opener Hershelle Gibbs on disciplinary grounds and their captain Graeme Smith not yet recovering from an elbow injury, Johan botha will still captain the team.
