On the other hand, Bangladeshi tigers surprised them after registering an impressive win against South Africa in the opening match. Although Bangladesh lost their second match against the blackcaps, they showed a tough fight in the game.

Team Analysis: England

The home team bowled well in patches in the last game against Pakistan which they however, lost. The main reason for their defeat was poor fielding performance. England team‘s biggest strength is their batting, and in both the matches they have done well. The likes of Jos Buttler, Eoin Morgan, and Joe Root have performed well. But Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy have yet not implemented for what they are known for. So, now they need to step up and show the skills and capabilities they possess.

Talking about the team combination, no changes are expected for the match. 

Full Squad: Eoin Morgan (C), Jason Roy, Joe Root, James Vince, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, and Mark Wood.

Team Analysis: Bangladesh

For Bangladesh, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan looked impressive with both bat and ball in both the matches, the team has played. Other than him, Mushfiqur Rahim scored a half-century in both the games. The likes of Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, needs to convert their starts to big scores.
