In Match 22 of the T20 World Cup, Bangladesh will meet England for their Group 1 encounter at Abu Dhabi on Wednesday afternoon. Bangladesh suffered a defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka in their opening fixture while England comfortably dispatched West Indies to open its account.
Bangladesh Betting Tips
888 Sportsbook Cricket Betting Odds: 1.25
Despite losing the last match, the team gave a decent performance which the team will be looking to deliver consistently. There is enough quality in the Bangladesh ranks to cause a few upsets especially in the UAE.
The batting-card looked good with Litton Das and Mohammed Naim as the opening-pair. The latter notched a fifty and the veteran Mushfiqur Rahman also notched a half-century. Shakib Al Hasan is also a good knick despite missing out in the last match. With Mahmudullah, Nurul Hasan and Afif Hossain, there is decent depth to the batting line-up.
Bowling is an area of concern for Bangladesh even though it has quite a few options up their sleeve. Yet Mohammed Saifuddin and Mustafizur Rahman are the only two seamers but neither possesses the cutthroat pace. Nasum Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan and Shakib Al Hasan will form a trio of thorny spin-bowlers that might enjoy some success against this opposition.
England Betting Tips
888 Sportsbook Cricket Betting Odds: 4.00
While England notched an easy win to start the tournament, there are a few doubts lingering about the team. The bowlers came up with an outstanding performance but the batting-card still made a meal of a paltry target.
Jos Buttler looks in good knick at the top of the England batting-card but his opening-partner Jason Roy needs a good knock soon to avoid losing his confidence. Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali bring a lot of big-hitting ability to the middle-order but not much stability especially with the skipper Eoin Morgan badly out of form.
The England bowling-unit will take a lot of belief after picking up 10 wickets in less than 15 overs in the last match. Chris Woakes and Chris Jordan will form the pace-attack along with Tymal Mills who looked in good rhythm on his return to the side. Moeen Ali will play a big part during the Powerplay overs and Adil Rashid is a big threat on the dry, turning pitches of the UAE.
T20 World Cup Betting Tips
Highest Score 6 Overs: England
England has a powerful batting-card which is designed to always be in aggressive mode. Bangladesh does not have as much firepower in its line-up and the bowlers also tend to give away plenty of runs in the Powerplay.
Total Wides: Over 8.5
Bangladesh bowlers can struggle with their line particularly against the stronger teams and have more than 6 wide-balls in 2 of the last 4 games. England will also stray a few times during their turn with the ball.
Highest Opening Partnership: Bangladesh
Jos Buttler and Jason Roy is a ballistic opening-duo for England but neither is at the top of their game. Liton Das and Mohammed Naim is a steady pair for Bangladesh with the latter already scoring 2 fifties in the tournament.
Extra Betting Tips
Top Bangladesh Run Scorer: Shakib Al Hasan (odds – 3.50)
Top England Wicket Taker: Tymal Mills (odds – 4.20)
