|Date||9th March, 2023|
|Time||5.30 PM IST, 12.00 Pm GMT, 6.00 Pm Local Time|
|Venue||Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram|
Although Bangladesh lost the ODI Series 2-1, they would want to take the confidence from the last one-day match where they managed to pick up a comprehensive win over England and carry the same into the T20 series. Shakib Al Hasan pulled off a magical spell in the final and helped Bangladesh defend a low score. Shakib’s form will be crucial for Bangladesh.
On the other hand, England have been dominant in shorter format and will start as big favourites in the first T20I.
The last one-day match played here saw the pitch being a slow and a turning one. The same is expected in the first T20I on Thursday.
The weather would be clear. The temperature is set to be around 30 degrees and we expect no rain on Thursday.

Jos Buttler in T20s is a different beast. With Buttler opening the batting in T20s we expect him to give England a furious start for the strong middle order to capitalize.
Shakib would be expected to contribute heavily in all the departments for Bangladesh to make some statement against the world champions. With form and the nature of the pitch in his favor, We expect Shakib to be the impact player for Bangladesh
With 4 left-handed batters in the England batting lineup, Mehidy would be the ideal player to dominate with his off-spin in the middle overs. With the pitch being slow, don’t be surprised if Mehidy is sent up the order to score quickly.
Rashid was the Man of the series in the one-day series. With the pitch behaving similarly, expect Rashid to spin the web again and restrict the Bangladesh batters.
Curran picked 6 wickets in the 2 one-day matches he played and instantly created an impact. With his all-round abilities, he is a good player to have.
