Last three Odi’s some best performances Eng v BD 2016
Imrul Kayes (BDESH) 169 runs in three matches, BA Stokes (ENG) 148, JC Buttler (ENG) 145, BM Duckett (ENG) 123. AU Rashid (ENG) ten wickets, Mashrafe Mortaza (BDESH) eight, JT Ball (ENG) seven, Shafiul Islam (BDESH) four.
There is likely to be a slow pitch, which wouldn’t give any batsman a comfortable start. The spinners are likely to get more purchases after the first day but again it will be on the slower side. Dust bowls could appear but not until later in the contest. After the rain which threatened the ODI, the forecast is for it to be hot and sunny.
England will have to make at least three changes from their last Test XI, with Alex Hales (opted out), James Vince (dropped) and James Anderson (injured) unavailable. There was a late move which favoured Duckett opening with Cook and Hameed missing out, which would mean Gary Ballance retaining his place. The third spinner spot is between the Surrey pair of Batty and the uncapped Zafar Ansari.
Bangladesh’s top six will be exactly the one that played the last Test, but the rest of the line-up will be changed. Sabbir Rahman and 18-year-old off-spinner Mehedi Hasan are most likely to make their Test debuts and if the home side goes with two pace bowlers, Kamrul Islam Rabbi would also be making his debut. If Mushfiqur keeps wicket, Nurul Hasan will be sitting out.
