ENG tour of BAN, 2023

BAN vs ENG, 1st ODI



The first match of the three-match ODI series between Bangladesh and England will be played on Wednesday, March 1. The game will be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. 

Bangladesh are presently placed in the 6th position in the World Championship Super League points table. Their bilateral series’ records at home are impressive and contrary to their records in overseas conditions. They won 2-1 against the mighty Indian side last year and that would surely work as a confidence booster for them.

On the other side, England are sitting in third place on the World Championship Super League Points table. Their ideology of gameplay is powered by the Bazzball theory and this passionate English side have played some really aggressive cricket. Before coming into this fixture, they have fetched some convincing victories against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the other two Asian sides, but their series loss against South Africa will haunt them a fraction till now. 

The Bangla Tigers have had a very good win percentage in their recent matches. They recorded very comfortable wins against Zimbabwe and India at home. Yet when we look at their overall win percentage in ODI cricket, Bangladesh have a gloomy-looking record as they have played 403 matches, winning 146 of them and losing 250 matches with 7 of the matches ending without result. 

England on the other hand, have not seen good days in the recent past as they suffered some major defeats against Australia and South Africa. They will be looking to learn from their mistakes and come back stronger in this match. In overall comparison, England is a more experienced side when compared to Bangladesh, as they have contested in 776 ODI matches and won 390 games, tasted defeat in 347 of them with 30 games ending without any result.
