The main concern right now for ICC is if they can continue the matches in Gros Islet, St Lucia. There has been heavy rain during in along with thunderstorms for past few days. There are no reserve days for the group matches which mean that the teams will have to share the points in every game. They can’t even change the venue as the cost is too high. So now it is all up to the Gods to decide if they will allow the games or not. The team that will be impacted the most will be England as they are the other favorites apart from Australia. Let us take a look at the probable playing 11 for this game.
Overall Matches – 2
England – 2
Bangladesh – 0
Venue: Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia
There are chances of rain again, this might ruin the whole Group A matches as the forecast has already announced heavy rain for this entire week. ICC will have to reconsider another ground.

England would be very disappointed with the result of the first game as that was an easy two-pointer for them. But they had to settle with one point after the rain spoiled everything. This match will be crucial for them as now they cannot afford to lose any match if they want to qualify for the Semi-finals. They are already one point short, and after the last match, Bangladesh will be trying to give their best as this would be a do-or-die match for them as well. The important thing for England will be to win with a good NRR, so they cover all the bases if it comes to that in the end.
Their first encounter with Windies was a horrible dream that they would want to forget. They were brilliant with the ball but collapsed like a house of cards while batting. They managed one of the lowest scores in the WWT20 history. This will have impacted their confidence, but the important thing for them would be to move on. Every match here is as important as the other so one can’t sulk over the previous match and they will have to focus on the next one. She was brilliant with the ball so she will have to continue doing that, and she will have to perform with the bat as well. Ayasha Rahman; Shamima
Sultana will have to take the pressure of the middle order with a good opening stand.
