England and Bangladesh have long been big names in cricket, but it is surprising that they have only met twice in T20Is, and this is their first bi-lateral series. Bangladesh have played excellent white ball cricket at home, and they have recovered well after losing the first two ODIs. England will look to dominate their opponents and win this game to force a series decider.
The 2nd T20I between Bangladesh vs England will take place on March 12th, 2023 at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka.

Rony Talukdar (21 runs), Towhid Hridoy (24 runs), Shakib Al Hasan (34 runs), and Afif Hossain (15 runs) made timely contributions to keep their scoreboard moving in the chase. They have a strong batting lineup that includes many experienced players.
Their bowlers bowled well as a team, and each bowler chipped in with a wicket to limit the opposition to 156/6 in 20 overs. Hasun Mahmud and Shakib Al Hasan took 2 and 1 wickets, respectively, and scored at 6.5 RPO. Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, and Nasum Ahmed each took a wicket in the previous game.

Players to watch out for:
Najmul Hossain Shanto
The 24-year-old top-order batter maintains his high level of performance. He scored 51 in the first T20I but was still irritated when he was dismissed, demonstrating his desire for more runs.
Shakib Al Hasan
The captain is a fantastic T20 player with both bat and ball. When batting, he keeps the runs down while also being a wicket-taking threat, and he is not afraid to take the attack to the opposition.
The 23-year-old right-arm fast medium bowler, was Bangladesh’s pick on Thursday. In the final overs, he dismissed Jos Buttler and Sam Curran.
Possible Playing XI:
Litton Das, Rony Talukdar, Najmal Shanto, Towhid Hridoy, Shakib Al Hasan,Afif Hossain, Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Nasum Ahmed, Shamim Hossain
With an 80-run opening partnership, England openers Phil Salt (38 runs) and Jos Buttler (67 runs) are off to a flying start. Their middle order of Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, Moeen Ali, and Sam Curran failed to build on their strong start, finishing with 156/6 in 20 overs. In the lower middle order, they rely heavily on their all-rounders. Their bowlers failed to contain the opposition, allowing 168 runs in 18 overs.
Moeen Ali bowled brilliantly in good conditions, finishing with figures of 4-0-27-1. In the previous game, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, and Mark Wood each took a wicket. Rehan Ahmed could be added to the bowling attack.
Jos Buttler (c & wk), Mark Wood, Reece Topley, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Philip Salt, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Rehan Ahmed, Moeen Ali, Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett
Players to watch out for:
Few players in the world can adjust so quickly to changing conditions and score runs at such a consistent rate as England’s captain.
Before being bowled by Mustafizur Rahman on Thursday, the left-hander was looking very comfortable. Duckett will be looking to make amends in this game after his wicket started the match’s turnaround.
The 35-year-old was introduced into the attack during the powerplay and took a wicket in the first game. When Buttler requires a breakthrough, he looks to him.
Possible Playing XI:
Jos Buttler, Phil Salt, Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Rehan Ahmed, Sam Curran
Bangladesh vs England Top Team Batsmen
We support Bangladesh’s batsmen Najmul Hossain Shanto, Litton Das, and Shakib Al Hasan. In his last three appearances against England this month, Shakib has scored 58, 75, and 34 not out. Shanto was in excellent form in the BPL and is continuing to do so at international level.
Our batting picks for England are Jos Buttler, Phil Salt, and Ben Duckett. Salt is an aggressive top-order batsman who scored 38 runs off 35 balls in the first T20I. Duckett was not even on England’s radar two years ago, but he has worked his way into the squad for Tests, ODIs, and T20Is this winter.
Bangladesh vs England Top Team Bowlers
Taskin Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan, and Hasan Mahmud are our bowling picks for Bangladesh. Ahmed missed the final ODI but was particularly effective in England’s final overs on Thursday. In the first game of the series, Shakib got a crucial wicket of Dawid Malan.
Mark Wood, Jofra Archer, and Adil Rashid are our England bowling picks. On Thursday, all three bowlers were expensive at times, but they also picked up wickets. Wood’s pace proved too much for some of Bangladesh’s batters, and he claimed the wicket of Najmul Hossain Shanto.
Bangladesh vs England Head to Head
Bangladesh tied the series at 1-1 after winning at home on Thursday. This will only be the third time the teams have met in this format.

Bangladesh vs England Toss Prediction
With no score deemed safe and bowlers finding it difficult to bowl with the dew in the second innings, chasing is the best option in T20Is of late.
Bangladesh vs England Pitch Report
Dhaka has ODI matches this season, and the pitch will slow down. We anticipate a score of 160-170 runs in this match.
Dhaka has traditionally been a bowler-friendly pitch, with the pitch slowing as the match progresses. On match day, the weather will be cool and breezy, providing ideal playing conditions.
Bangladesh vs England Prediction
England lacks solid lower-order batters and firepower to make quick runs, so they rely heavily on their bowling all-rounders to contribute. Bangladesh has been a dominant side at home recently and will look to capitalise on home advantage. We believe England will win this game and tie the series at 1-1. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!
England is the favourite to beat Bangladesh at the odds of 1.43.
Bangladesh vs England Most Recommended Player for Bet:
Jos Buttler scored 67 runs off 42 balls at the top of the order in the first T20I, and the England captain is a strong contender for the game’s highest run scorer.
