Tip Summary

  • This will be the 22nd time that Bangladesh will be squaring off against England in the 50-over format. The Englishmen have scored a win in 17 games while the remaining four matches saw the Tigers dishing a stunning performance.
  • Bangladesh won their last ODI series against India in December by 2-1.
  • England are heading into the Bangladesh tour following a loss against South Africa in the three-match ODI series.

Just after the conclusion of the two-match Test series against New Zealand, the England cricket team is touring Bangladesh for a three-match ODI and T20I series. The limited-overs tour kick-starts from March 01, Wednesday with the first One Day International scheduled at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. The two teams experienced contrasting rides in their most recent ODI series.

England are a better One Day team as compared to the Bangladesh side. The head–to-head records between the two sides are also a testimony for the same. The Englishmen have won 17 of their 22 One Day Internationals against the Tigers. Moreover, they are occupying the fourth place with 111 ratings and 3656 points in the ODI team rankings by the International Cricket Council. 

However, the Jos Buttler & Men have done well in the 50-over format in the recent past. Their last ODI series saw them registering a defeat against South Africa. Earlier in February, England traveled to South Africa to feature in three One Day Internationals. The first ODI saw South Africa defending 298 runs with ease to record a win by 27 runs. The Porteas continued their domination in the second game as well by chasing a massive total of 343 runs within 49.1 overs. However, after the five-wicket win, the hosts could not cause a cleansweep. England finally recorded their first win in the tournament by defeating the hosts by 59 runs. They scored 346 runs in the first innings and restricted the South African team to 287 runs in the second innings.

Speaking of Bangladesh, they are seventh in the ICC rankings. However, the team will be filled with momentum as they have won three of their last five One Day matches. It was a big achievement for the side in December last year as they defeated India in the three-match series by 2-1. Bangladesh won the first ODI and one wicket while in the second game they scored a win by five runs. The two back-to-back wins were followed by an embarrassing defeat in the third ODI by a whopping 227 runs. 

Having said that, the Bangladesh cricket team has not played even a single international game since the last two months. Despite the long sabbatical, the player will be in good rhythm as they recently played in the Bangladesh Premier League 2023.

Mehidy Hasan Miraz was the top player for Bangladesh when they last locked horns with the Indian team. In three matches, he amassed 141 runs at an average of 141 and a strike rate of over 111.00. The all-rounder also has a stunning overall international record in the limited-overs format. The 25-year-old has so far represented Bangladesh in 67 One Day Internationals and has scored 756 runs at an average of over 22.91 abd a strike rate of over 78.91. Thus, the chances of him again being the top batter for his team on Wednesday are high.

For England, there can be no one better than the wicketkeeper-batter Jos Buttler to place your money on. Despite England’s loss in the ODI series against South Africa, the captain was lauded for being the top run-scorer. He topped the charts with 261 runs under his belt at a stunning average of 130.50 and a strike rate of over 103. Moreover, Buttler has brilliant record while playing the limited-overs cricket in India. He caused a carnage in the Indian Premier League last year while plying his trade for Rajasthan Royals. The playing conditions in Bangladesh are similar to that in India. Thus, he will have an edge over the other England batters.

Top wicket-taker of the match: Jofra Archer

After being on a break for months because of injuries, Jofra Archer has finally made a comeback to the big stage. The seamer did not let the injuries hamper his game. He was terrific in the ODI series against ODI series with seven wickets to his name in two matches at an average of 17.29. Archer is expected to continue his exploits against Bangladesh as well and again end up as the top wicket-taker for his team. The 27-year-old has a whopping 37 scalps to his name in just 19 One Day Internationals.
