After the first victory in the last match, England got a lot of confidence and Bangladesh is now in lot of pressure. What happened in their last match was a miracle because at England batted first and scored 308 runs, the target was 309 and Bangladesh team were at 271 four wickets down.
Then suddenly BD wickets started falling very quickly and all out at 288. It was an unbelievable performance from England bowlers. Jacob Timothy Ball’s new England team Right-arm fast-medium bowler took five wickets in 9.5 overs with 51 runs on his debut. AU Rashid took four wickets in nine overs with 49 runs.

Mirpur offered a typically slow batting pitch for the first contest, and it is unlikely the next pitch used will be any different. Rain also remains in the weather forecast, particularly late in the afternoon. If Bairstow does not come through his morning fitness test that could open the door for Sam Billings.
Another option, should England like an extra spinner to call on, would be allrounder Liam Dawson. Plunkett will also be assessed on Sunday morning, but if he has recovered from his toe injury could find it difficult to regain his spot after Ball’s display.
While Soumya Sarkar will have a hard time returning to the XI because Imrul’s hundred has blocked his path, there is now a stronger argument for Nasir Hossain and Al-Amin Hossain. They could take the places of Mosaddek Hossain and Mosharraf Hossain, the latter who also injured his hand in the last game.
