Tip Summary

  • England are in a tough spot in the three-match T20I series as they are lagging behind by 0-1.
  • The team was let down by the batters as they ended up scoring only 156 runs in their first innings. 
  • This will be only the third time that England and Bangladesh will play against each other in the shortest format of the game. Both teams have won one T20 International against each other.

The England cricket team will be eager to redeem itself and make a comeback on Sunday when they will square off against Bangladesh in the second T20 International of the three-match series. The two teams are scheduled to play against each other at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on March 12, Sunday. This will be the last chance for the visitors to save the series as Bangladesh need only one more victory to clinch the series.

The Tigers were absolutely sensational in the first T20 International as they scored a win by six wickets to take a lead of 1-0. After winning the three-match ODI series by 2-1, England entered the shortest format of the game in high spirits. The skipper Jos Buttler lost the toss and the host team elected to bowl first. Batting in the first innings, the Englishmen did not make much of an impact as they ended up with only 156 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

The opening pair of Phil Salt and Buttler looked in good touch as they stitched an opening partnership of 80 runs in 9.6 overs. Salt was dismissed after scoring 38 runs while the skipper played an excellent knock of 67 runs off just 42 balls. His knock included four boundaries and as many sixes.

The openers did not get support from the other batters as they struggled in scoring even a double-digit score. Hasan Mahmud was the pick of the bowler for the Bangladesh team with two wickets to his name. 

Chasing the total, the hosts exhibited their class. Najmul Hossain Shanto was the top performer for his team with the bat as he hammered 51 runs off just 30 balls with the help of eight boundaries. Apart from Shanto, the skipper Shakib Al Hasan also did well with a knock of 34 runs off 24 balls. 

The victory must have boosted Bangladesh’s confidence and they will be eager to continue the momentum.
