BAN vs ENG Betting Tips

  • Najmul Hossain Shanto finished as the leading run scorer in this season’s Bangladesh Premier League and the top order left-hander is our tip for the home side’s highest run scorer in this match. Shakib Al Hasan took 4-35 against England on Monday and he left-armer is a strong choice for Bangladesh’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • Jos Buttler has scored one hundred and 19 half-centuries in IT20s and the captain is our pick for England’s highest run scorer against Bangladesh. Adil Rashid took eight wickets across the ODI series and the leg-spinner is well worth backing as England’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • After hitting over 100 runs during the ODIs, we recommend choosing Jos Buttler to hit over 29.5 runs in this match.

BAN vs ENG 1st T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After Bangladesh won the final ODI of the three-match series to prevent a 3-0 defeat against England on Monday, the two teams go head to head in the first IT20 on Thursday afternoon. Read on as we preview this series opener in Chittagong. The first of three IT20 games gets underway at the Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium at 15:00 local time.

Bangladesh showed plenty of character in the final ODI and under a different captain in a different format, could well go 1-0 up in this series.

England will be full of confidence after winning the ODI series. This will be the first time the team has played IT20 cricket since their victory in the T20 World Cup Final late last year.

BAN vs ENG Match Toss Prediction

The last two IT20s at this venue were won by the team batting second. We predict that both skippers will want to field first in this match.

BAN vs ENG, Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium Pitch Report

We expect to see another low-bouncing two-paced wicket in Chattogram. Any score over 150 will be a good score on this pitch.

Chattogram Weather Report

The conditions will be pretty similar across both innings with some clouds and the temperature over 30 degrees throughout

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

There will be at least three changes for Bangladesh from their last game in this format. Soumya Sarkar, Mosaddek Hossain and Ebadot Hossain are all not in the squad but were in the XI in their last IT20. We expect Towhid Hridoy to make his first international appearance in this game.

BAN Key Players

  • Najmul Hossain Shanto- the opener scored two half-centuries during the ODI series and continued his strong batting numbers from the BPL.
  • Shakib Al Hasan- the in-form all-rounder returns to the captaincy in this format. He was brilliant with both bat and ball in Monday’s ODI.
  • Taskin Ahmed- the right-arm fast bowler was rested for the final ODI but caused England’s batters problems throughout the series and will be keen to get back on the pitch in this game.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh have lost three of their last four IT20s but are generally a stronger side in home conditions across all formats.

ENG Team News

There will be some interesting selection calls for England ahead of this opening game of the series. We expect Jofra Archer to be rested and for the tall left-arm pace bowler Reece Topley to come in and make his first appearance of the tour.

ENG Key Players

  • Jos Buttler- the captain has an excellent leadership record in Bangladesh. He will return to the top of the order for this series.
  • Ben Duckett- the left-hander has established himself in the England set-up across all formats and has impressed across all formats in a variety of conditions during this winter.
  • Adil Rashid- the 35 year old right-arm leg-spinner impressed during the T20 World Cup and has been in excellent form throughout this tour.

ENG Team Form

England won their last four IT20s to lift the World Cup trophy back in November in Melbourne.

Who will win Bangladesh vs England 1st T20 Match?

Bangladesh showed that they have plenty of talent with their win on Monday. However, in this format, it is England’s players who have been the more consistent over recent years.

BAN vs ENG Top Team Batsmen

For Bangladesh, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Litton Das and Shakib Al Hasan are our batting choices. Captain Shakib hit successive scores of 58 and 75 in the last two ODIs. Shanto has been in brilliant batting form since the start of the year across all white ball cricket.

Jos Buttler, Dawid Malan and Moeen Ali are our batting picks for England. Buttler top scored in the SA20 earlier this year after finishing as the leading run scorer in last year’s IPL. Moeen is one of the cleanest hitters in world cricket and has an excellent record against spin.

BAN vs ENG Top Team Bowlers

Taskin Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan Miraz are our bowling selections for Bangladesh. Shakib took 4-35 in Monday’s final game of the ODI series. Miraz provides an additional spin option and picked up five English wickets across the three ODIs.

For England, Mark Wood, Sam Curran and Adil Rashid are our tips with the ball. Curran’s bowling took him to the Player of the Series Award in the T20 World Cup and he has picked up key wickets on this tour already. Wood’s pace will be a big weapon for England, even on a low surface.

🏆 Bangladesh vs England Prediction

Teams often look forward to their first game in the format after winning a World title. However, for England, coming up against an inconsistent side like Bangladesh, who have a strong home record, may not have been their preferred choice of opponents. We expect both teams to be on top at times in this game but are backing England’s variety in the bowling attack and their long batting order to be enough to win the match.
