On Friday, March 3, Bangladesh will play England in the second of three ODIs. Bangladesh suffered a setback after losing the series opener by three wickets. On the other hand, England relied on the expertise of their veteran Dawid Malan, who produced a match-winning century in difficult batting conditions to take them home with 8 balls to spare. Bangladesh accomplished everything right in the first ODI, but they couldn’t eliminate Dawid Malan, which cost them the match by three wickets. Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mahmudullah batted brilliantly to lead the team to 209 runs.
Musfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan, the seasoned combo, would have done better but fell cheaply while attempting glory shots. They have the luxury of batting deep, but they must work hard on the field. The spinners were on target from the start, but one solid knock wrecked their aspirations. If they can show more bravery with the bat, they have a chance to even the series 1-1. Dawid Malan’s one-man performance handed visiting England a 1-0 lead in the three-match series as they defeated the Bangla Tigers by three wickets in the first ODI. As other batsmen gave up so readily in the run-chase, Dawid Malan, 35, stayed firm at one end and showed next-level flexibility to remain undefeated on 114* runs. Previously, the bowlers shared wickets, which skipper Jos Buttler managed effectively by making appropriate changes. They have a strong bench and are expected to make minor adjustments for this encounter.
Spinners and quick bowlers receive equal assistance here. While opting for the offensive mode, batters must be strategic and pick their pitches correctly. A score of around 250 is considered decent here.
