Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions - ICC Cricket World Cup - England v Bangladesh
England and Bangladesh will face each other in the 12th match of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.
England and Bangladesh have met a total of 20 times, out of which, England have won six and Bangladesh have won four times. Their last encounter was in the 2017 Champions Trophy, when Tamim Iqbal's century helped Bangladesh score a 300+ total. Substantial contributions from Joe Root, Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan helped England chase the target comfortably with around two and a half overs to go.
Interestingly, in the last 18 matches that the two teams have played against each other, England have won 16 but have lost both the all-important World Cup encounters against Bangladesh. One would remember the team's unceremonious exit from the 2015 World Cup after suffering a defeat at the hands of The Tigers.
In the last five matches played by England and Bangladesh, both teams won four and lost their most recent matches.
While Bangladesh were full of confidence after winning their first encounter against South Africa, they suffered a narrow defeat against New Zealand in their last match, getting bundled out for 244, ultimately losing the match by two wickets.
Likewise, England registered a comprehensive win over South Africa in their first game, but suffered an unanticipated 14-run defeat against Pakistan in their last match.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
England- Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid/Mark Wood, Jofra Archer
Bangladesh- Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mossadek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mustafizur Rahman
