Mumbai: England, who are considered as favourites to win the ICC World Cup 2019, are going to face Bangladesh on June 8. An unexpected defeat against Pakistan has shaken the English side.
England will be hoping to continue their march towards the trophy by registering a win against Bangladesh. England's biggest strength is its batting, led by in-form Jason Roy, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler.
England's bowling unit will be led by Jofra Archer. The 24-years-old was in excellent form against South Africa but failed to make an impression against Pakistan.
On the other hand, Bangladesh has also impressed everyone by defeating South Africa and by performing well against New Zealand. Bangladesh have proved that they cannot be taken lightly in the tournament.
The trio of Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah are expected to steer the team to the victory. Bangladesh also has fast bowlers like Abu Jayed and Rubel Hossain, who will be looking to make an impact in the English conditions.
The match is going to be played at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff, a venue where there has been plenty of help for the fast bowlers. The pitch in Cardiff has been green and helpful to the seamers. Both the teams will be looking to capitalize on their fast bowling attack.
