BAN vs ENG, World Cup 2019: Bangladesh win toss, elect to field against England


Bangladesh takes on England in a much-awaited matchup in the ICC World Cup 2019 at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on Saturday. 

Mortaza, the Bangladesh captain,  at the time of toss said, "We will bowl first. This pitch has been undercover for the last two days. We liked to play an extra seamer, but we are sticking with the same team. Last match was disappointing but hopefully, we will bounce back. We have to play at our best to beat this England team."

The English captain Morgan said, "I don't think this is a bad toss to lose considering the amount of grass that has come off this wicket. Some grounds are bit shorter which doesn't allow to bowl spin in tandem. Playing two spinners creates a bit of an issue there, hence we are playing an extra seamer. Little bit of a blip, little bit of a bad day against Pakistan. Today, hopefully we will show that it is not something that is an issue. We played some good cricket against South Africa and hopefully we will play good cricket today."

The Playing XI:

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mustafizur Rahman.

England: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood.
