Have England played Bangladesh before in T20 cricket?

This will be the first time the two sides have ever faced each other in the Twenty20 format of the game.

England will come into this game as the obvious favorites to win. They thrashed West Indies in their opening competitive match reducing the opposition to 55 runs all out after 14.2 overs. Moeen Ali and Tymal Mills both took two wickets each with Moeen Ali and Chris Jordan taking one apiece. It was Adil Rashid, however, who did the most damage taking four wickets for an incredible two runs.

Chris Gayle was the Windies highest scorer, making 13 runs before being caught by Dawid Malan off Mills.

Jos Buttler was England’s highest scorer making an unbeaten 24 runs off 22 balls with Akeal Hosein being the West Indies’ best bowler taking two wickets for 24 runs.

The conditions of Wednesday’s match will however put Bangladesh in a much stronger position. They will look to rely on the spin-trio of Shakib Al Hasan, Nasum Ahmed and Mahedi Hasan to exploit the weaknesses England showed against the West Indian spin.

Bangladesh’s bowling coach, Ottis Gibson has said that Bangladesh must keep their composure if they are to have a chance against Eoin Morgan’s white-ball side.

Until 2017, Gibson used to have the same role but in the England camp and has therefore witnessed how explosive England’s limited-overs squad can be.

Possible starting line-ups:

England: Eoin Morgan (c) , Jason Roy, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Dawid Malan, David Willey, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Tymal Mills

Bangladesh: Mahmudullah (c) , Mohammad Naim, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossan, Narul Hasan, Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Nasum Ahmed
