Following a resounding victory against England in the T20I series opener, Bangladesh will take on the visitors in the second match of the series at the Shere Bangla National Stadium on Sunday, March 12. England skipper Jos Buttler will be hoping to bounce back from their disappointing defeat in the previous encounter.
While the Three Lions will take to the field in search of a series-levelling victory, Shakib Al Hasan will be eyeing a memorable series victory against the reigning T20 World Cup champions. The home side were dismantled in the ODI series in the lead-up of the ongoing T20I assignment, but they have looked like a much better outfit in the shortest format of the game.
England, on the other hand, will be disappointed with their performance, especially the batters, who failed to capitalize on a steady start from Phil Salt and Jos Buttler. Apart from Ben Duckett, none of the middle-order batters got to double digits during their sluggish stay at the crease in the first T20I.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh will be hoping for more of the same from the players in the second T20I, especially the slower bowlers, who were disciplined with their line and lengths against a power-hitting English batting unit. It proposes to be another hard-fought contest between the two sides with the series on the line.
Pitch and Conditions
The surface in Dhaka, much like the other venues in the country, offers a considerable amount of assistance for the slower bowlers. The recently concluded BPL saw the teams struggling to chase a target over the 160-run mark, which might persuade the teams to bat first at this venue after winning the toss.
Probable Playing XI for BAN vs ENG
While the Bangladeshi batters did well in the T20I series opener, it was the bowlers who set up the win for the home side. The Bangladeshi bowlers were miserly in the death overs and managed to restrict their opponents to a below-par total.
Probable XI: Rony Talukdar, Litton Das (wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto, Shakib Al Hasan (c), Shamim Hossain, Afif Hossain, Towhid Hridoy, Taskin Ahmed, Nasum Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud
Jos Buttler will be disappointed by his team's batting performance in the first T20I as his batter failed to seize the momentum in the latter stages of the first innings. After Buttler's dismissal in the 17th over, England managed to score just 21 runs in the last kast 23 deliveries despite considerable firepower in the lower middle order.
Probable XI: Jos Buttler (c & wk), Philip Salt, Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood
