Taskin Ahmed was the most wicket-taker from the Bangladesh team in BD past series v Afghanistan. He took seven wickets in three ODI’s, Shakib Al Hasan took six and Mashrafe Mortaza took four. Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan these three BD batsmen had scored good enough runs.
Another side England who played their last series against Pakistan was so brilliant. JE Root, AD Hales, and BA Stokes these three batsmen were so good. CR Woakes was the most wicket-taker with nine wickets, MA Wood took seven and LE Plunkett took five.
England have won the toss and JC Buttler decided to bat first.

JJ Roy, JM Vince, BM Duckett, JM Bairstow, BA Stokes, JC Buttler*†, MM Ali, CR Woakes, DJ Willey, AU Rashid, JT Ball.

Rain is forecast for Friday afternoon so both teams could pick their XIs at the last minute, after taking a look at the pitch as historically, the Mirpur square has had a tendency of changing slightly with moisture around. England are set to make six changes from their last ODI, with Hales and Morgan missing, Joe Root rested from the tour, Mark Wood injured and Chris Jordan omitted.
Vince is likely to take Hales’ place while Duckett is certain to make his ODI debut. Adil Rashid and Moeen are also set to return, leaving Liam Dawson, Sam Billings, Jake Ball and Steven Finn on the bench.
Imrul Kayes has been preferred to Soumya as Tamim’s partner in the opening slot. But there is unlikely to be any place for Al-Amin Hossain and Nasir Hossain in an otherwise settled Bangladesh XI that beat Afghanistan in the third ODI on October 1.
