World Cup 2023: Bangladesh opt to bowl against England

by tbhdesk

Bangladesh won the toss and decided to field first against the defending champions England at Dharamshala Stadium in India on Tuesday.

Tigers have been made one change to the XI from the previous match. Instead of Mahmudullah Riyad, spinner Mahedi Hasan included in the playing eleven.

England did not have a great start in the World Cup like Bangladesh. The current champions lost to New Zealand by 9 wickets in the first match. One change was made from the XI for that match. Pacer Reece Topley will play in place of co-captain Moeen Ali.
Shakib Al Hasan: Little cooler than the other day. We have one change. Hope the fast bowlers can put in a good show. [On Mehidy] His batting has improved, he is one of the leaders at the moment in the team. We have to be at our best to get a result.

Jos Buttler: We were looking to field as well. One change for us. Reece Topley in for Mooen Ali. Looking to put in a good performance. We are expecting to bounce back. [Outfield] Got to be a little bit smart. Want to block it out and focus on the skill.

Playing XI:

Bangladesh: 1 Litton Das, 2 Tanzid Hasan, 3 Najmul Hossain Shanto, 4 Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 5 Shakib Al Hasan (capt), 6 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 7 Towhid Hridoy, 8 Mahedi Hasan, 9 Taskin Ahmed, 10 Shoriful Islam, 11 Mustafizur Rahman

England: 1 Jonny Bairstow, 2 Dawid Malan, 3 Joe Root, 4 Harry Brook, 5 Jos Buttler (capt & wk), 6 Liam Livingstone, 7 Sam Curran, 8 Chris Woakes, 9 Mark Wood, 10 Adil Rashid, 11 Reece Topley
