World Cup ODI 2023

ENG vs. BAN, Match 7

 

Preview

In the 7th World Cup ODI 2023 match, the defending champions England will square off against Bangladesh on Tuesday(October 10) at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamshala at 10:30 AM IST. Jos Buttler-led English side is one of the most fancied teams and favourite side to lift this prestigious trophy. However, the start of their defense has been rather insipid after facing a humiliating defeat against the Blackcaps in the opening match of the tournament. On the other side, Bangladesh defeated Afghanistan in their opening league match by six wickets.

Talking about ENG's first match against NZ they were completely outplayed by Tom Latham-led NZ side in that match. That loss would have hurt them and shaken up the entire English side since it has impacted ENG's net run-rate massively in the negative. Make no mistake, this robust ENG side is still one of the red-hot favourites of this World Cup ODI 2023, and Jos Buttler's side will be hurting.

For England, the veteran batter of the side Joe Root scored 77 runs off 86 against NZ in the first match, apart from him Buttler and Bairstow scored 43 and 33 respectively but that was not enough for them to post a big total for the Blackcaps. The hammered batting from Conway And Rachin Ravindra did not let ENG make a comeback in that match. Both the batters remained unbeaten after scoring their respective hundreds which led them to take a nine-wicket win over ENG. Bangladesh bundled up AFG on 156 runs under 38 overs and chased down the target under 35 overs. With the courtesy of Bangladesh's well-oiled bowling, which helped them to start their tournament with a win. The likes of Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan And Shoriful Islam scalped a combined eight wickets for their side.

Both sides have faced each other in 24 matches in ODI. Out of these 24 matches, ENG has won 19 matches whereas BAN has won 05 matches. ENG and BAN have faced each other 4 times in World Cup ODI history. While ENG is ahead in ODIs in general, their rivalry in the World Cup is intense, resulting in close matches. Both sides are tied at 2-2 in the marquee event.

 

Match Details

Match: World Cup ODI 2023, ENG vs BAN, Match 7

Date: Tuesday, October 10, 2023

Time: 10:30 AM IST

Venue: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamshala

 

Pitch and Weather Report

The average first-inning score at this venue is 206. It’s not exactly a high-scoring track, and teams batting first have been bundled out for less than 200 thrice here in just 5 completed matches. This pitch is one of the few ones in the country that provides consistent help to pacers. There is bounce and movement throughout, and the ball will zip off the surface when it’s new. Spinners too will enjoy the bounce from the pitch, as we saw in the last game. The team batting first should look to set a target of around 270-280 runs. This track is no stranger to cricketing action, and it's the perfect stage for this high-profile clash. The pitch at this venue offers a variety of challenges for both batters and bowlers.

The weather in Dharamsala will be partly sunny with a possible shower in the afternoon. The maximum temperature is likely to be around 24' and the minimum can be expected at 17'.

Match Prediction

Both sides have met 4 times in World Cup ODI matches; Bangla Tigers have won 2 of these four matches, while the English men have triumphed twice as well. In ODIs overall, ENG has a 19-5 H2H record against BAN. One thing is for certain: Jos Buttler-led ENG is unlikely to bulldoze their way through BAN on Tuesday.

On the other hand, Shakib Al Hasan-led BAN has already gotten a sense of the conditions, and BAN's bowlers will surely create some trouble for ENG's batters. However, we say ENG to dominate this match against Bangladesh.
