England and Bangladesh will face each other in the second warm-up match of the ICC World Cup 2023 on Monday, October 10 at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala. Both teams will be looking to fine-tune their preparations and gain some momentum ahead of the main tournament. Here is our prediction and betting tips for this exciting encounter.
England are the defending champions and one of the favourites to lift the trophy again. They have a formidable batting line-up, led by captain Jos Buttler, who scored a century in the first warm-up match against India. Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes are all capable of scoring big runs and putting pressure on any bowling attack. England also have a balanced bowling unit, with Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid as their main weapons. England will be keen to bounce back from their nine-wicket loss to New Zealand in the opening warm-up match and get some confidence before their first group match against Sri Lanka on October 13.
Bangladesh are not among the favourites to win the World Cup, but they have shown some improvement in recent years, especially in white-ball cricket. They have a solid top order, with Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim as their main run-getters. They also have some talented all-rounders, such as Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mahmudullah and Afif Hossain, who can contribute with both bat and ball. Bangladesh’s bowling strength lies in their spinners, with Mahedi Hasan, Nasum Ahmed and Shakib Al Hasan as their key performers. Bangladesh will be hoping to build on their seven-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the first warm-up match and test themselves against a strong opposition like England.
England are the clear favourites to win this match, as they have a superior record against Bangladesh in ODIs. They have won 19 out of 24 matches against them, including the last six in a row. They also have more depth and experience in their squad, which gives them an edge over Bangladesh. England will be looking to put up a big total on the board and then unleash their pace and spin attack on the Bangladesh batsmen.
Bangladesh are the underdogs in this match, as they have a poor record against England in ODIs. They have only won five out of 24 matches against them, with their last win coming way back in 2015. They also have some injury concerns, as Mustafizur Rahman and Mohammad Saifuddin are doubtful for this match. Bangladesh will have to play out of their skins to challenge England and hope for some favourable conditions for their spinners.
We predict that England will win this match comfortably by a margin of more than 50 runs or more than five wickets.
