Bangladesh vs England Highlights – Match Review
The English team won the toss and they elected to bowl first. After losing the game against India recently in Warm Up stage, the Bangladeshi batsmen looked quite in improved attitude today. They took stand and built an opening partnership of 56 runs. That partnership between Tamim Iqbal and Soumya was heading towards dangerous zone for the bowlers, but Ben Stokes broke that partnership and sent Soumya back to the pavilion.
On the counter side, the middle order batting lineup played some responsible innings against the English bowlers. Tamim Iqbal played a stunning innings and diverted pressure on the opposition bowlers in generous way. Imrul Kyes, the hero in 1st practice match against Pakistan also gave up and lost his wicket on 18 runs.
Captain pushed Stokes, Plunkett and Moeen Ali to the front foot with ball and gave them 10 overs each in order to destroy the Bangladeshi batting lineup. The Bangladeshi team is showing a mature and responsible attitude away home in an important event so far and gave tough time to England in today match.
