Bangladesh vs England, 2nd ODI Match Preview

England is going to play the 2nd match of the series against Bangladesh at Sher-E-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Friday. England has clinched Bangladesh in the first ODI with a remarkable batting performance by Dawid Malan who scored 114 off 145 balls.

Bangladesh came to bat first and scored a total of 209 runs on a sticky wicket. However, the visitors got a poor start but Dawid Malan’s century brought England a lead in the series. This was Malan’s fourth century in ODIs. 

Bangladesh who have not lost any series at home since 2016 will plan to do a comeback with a decent approach. They will make every single effort to level the series before the third ODI, which is going to be played in Chattogram on Monday. 

It is expected that both teams will go with the same playing Eleven. If they are looking to make some changes then England may go for Sam Curran or Reece Topley and Bangladesh may add Ebadot Hossain. 


Bangladesh is playing at their home conditions and they have a significant advantage. They will set the pitch at their convenience but England has already shown their maturity in the first ODI. 

Bangladesh will come with a strong approach, they have to beat both matches to clinch the series. Bangladesh has senior players on their team and it is expected that the experience will favor them in this series. The batting unit hasn’t performed well in the first ODI. The bowling unit performed well but was unable to defend a low score on the board. 


England also came up with the best players by keeping the ODI World Cup in their mind. The bowlers have done their job very well but the batsmen were struggling against spinners. 

As we know England got a lead in the series by winning the first match. So we may see some changes in the team, they will try different players to get the best team of the upcoming ODI WorldCup.
