England began their World Cup campaign on a high as they thrashed the Proteas with over a 100 run win until they got beaten by some good Pakistan pace bowling. Bangladesh, on the other hand, have shown great spirit after giving South Africa a shocker early on & then almost taking away the game from the Kiwis.
In a total of 3 head to head encounters, England have been able to manage only 1 win against Bangladesh which makes today’s game all the more interesting.
Jos Buttler: Best of All

The English big hitter recently scored a 76 ball 103 against Pakistan in a losing cause but looked affluent by all sorts. He would be looking to keep up the momentum in this match too especially with the Bangladesh bowling attack not having too much in the death overs to offer.
Bangla’s Got Nothing To Lose

What’s made Bangladesh a fiercely dangerous side in the tournament is the fact that they play with a nothing to lose attitude. If it’s their day, they can upset any opposition and bring their ‘A’ game in. Their batting & bowling both look pretty balanced and if they keep up this attitude in today’s game as well, a huge upset might just be on the cards.
Shakib’s Dream Run
Shakib Al Hasan is coming from two back to back half centuries and wickets in both previous matches. He’s been one of the most consistent performers for the Bangladeshis over the years and recently completed his double of 5000 runs & 200 wickets in the ODI format. If England want to avoid any chances of losing, they’ll have to watch out for the ace all rounder.
England Opening Concerns
Johnny Bairstow & Jason Roy haven’t really fired up as yet in the tournament like they usually do. Both have been struggling with spin bowling, playing lose shots & giving their wickets away to the opposition. Both these players can be really dangerous & give England the kick that’s been missing in the tournament so far.
May the best team win!
