Yesterday we had first wash out game in ICC world cup 2019. 10th match between Pakistan and Bangladesh was called off without a ball being bowled. Pakistan would be the team which would be more disappointed after the wash out. There are the definite better teams of the two, Especially coming after win against tournament favorites, England. Srilanka are also coming after a win, but they struggled to manage a win against Afghanistan.
Bangladesh Vs England
It is a shocker to English fans after losing to Pakistan in their last game. They were not expected to lose against Pakistan, Whom were defeated in the recently with score of 4-0. With defeat , a team like England would definitely make some changes. Certainly they missed out Liam Plunket wicket taking abilities in the middle over’s. England will look to keep Adil Rashid aside in this match. Especially with shorter boundaries for this match, they wouldn’t want to demoralise Adil Rashid further.
Bangladesh batsmen has played well and and could be attributed for most of the success. Tamim and Sowmya provided starts but couldn’t convert into match winning ones. It was Mushfiqur and Sakhib who took all through the midle orders. Mahamadullah was able to finish well only one innings. In their second outing he chewed many deleveries at the death. Sowmya Sarkar was tested with Short ones in his last game against New Zealand. So Archer will certainly trouble Sowmya at the start of the innings. Kiwis Converted Skhib’s strong area in to a weak one in dismissed him.
Cardiff will host the match. Usually Cardiff produce free flow of runs. But ICC just manufactured the pitches where 300-320 can be taken good score to defend. Teams willl ike to chase on this ground. Cardiff last hosted the match between Afghanisthan and Srilanka. Where Srilanka were able to produce great start . But were all out for just 201.
- Jason Roy to score fifty.
