The world’s number one ranked team and the favorites to win the ICC World Cup 2019, England, are going to be in action against Bangladesh on 7th June 2019 at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. The match will be live from 6 pm IST.
England After a fantastic and professional performance against South Africa, England fell short of chasing down a big score against Pakistan. Batting of the team has been clinical so far in the tournament. The bowlers have done well in batches. Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali took 3 wickets each against Pakistan whereas Mark Wood got 2 wickets. Root and Buttler both scored a ton last match but were not enough to take the team on the line. The team will not be looking to make any changes to their team from the last match.
Player To Watch Out For – Ben Stokes
Bangladesh has been brilliant so far in the tournament winning one match from the two matches they played. Team’s last match was a thriller and Tigers did very well but couldn’t manage to handle their nerves at the last stage of the game and lost it to Kiwis. Shakib was great with both bat and bowl, scoring 64 runs and also picked up a couple of wickets. Mehidy, Saifuddin and Hossain got two wickets each. They have bowlers like Abu Jayed and Rubel Hossain in the wings that could come into the side and make an immediate impact.
Player To Watch Out For – Shakib Al Hasan
The green pitch was on offer for the game between Afghanistan and Sri Lanka and seamers enjoyed the early help from the surface. However, the conditions eased out later on. The teams will be looking to bowl first after winning the toss if the case is same again.
