The 20th game of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 between England and Bangladesh would be an interesting one. This would be the first time the two sides would battle it out in a T20 game! England comes into this game with a confident win against West Indies and shall be looking for the next big win while Bangladesh comes here after a loss against Sri Lanka in their last game.
Bangladesh has struggled with its bowling attack in recent games, and they have lacked consistency which is something the side would have to urgently work on going into this game. Their batting has also shown struggles during the qualification and warmup games. It remains to be seen if the side can stand up to the mammoth challenge that England would throw at them.
Eoin Morgan would be proud of the way his side has started in the tournament. The side which was expected to face heat in the opening game against West Indies won it comfortably by 6 wickets. They bowled perfectly and batted well. The side would look to continue with the same momentum and improve their position on the points table with a win in this game.
Jason Roy and Jos Buttle wasted their starts in the last game, and they would be looking for a better show in this game. In the middle order, the side has good firepower with Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, and Jonny Bairstow in the side. Morgan hasn’t enjoyed good form in recent months, and he would have to play the role of a finisher well in the company of Dawid Malan and Chris Woakes in this game.
Their bowlers put up a superb show in the last game and the same would be expected from them here. Woakes and Moeen Ali were brilliant with the new ball, and they would look to trouble Bangladesh’s struggling top order. Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, and Tymal Mills bowled at good economy and the same would be expected from them in this game.

Mahmudullah’s side has struggled in recent games, and they lost their 1st game of the Super 12 against Sri Lanka by 5 wickets. Their batsmen had put up a big score on the board, but the bowling attack looked poor throughout the game never putting Sri Lanka under pressure. Mahmudullah would like to put this loss behind and hope for a win here to open chances for a berth in the semi-final.
Mohammad Naim has looked good, but the side would need Liton Das to stand up to the challenge as he has been in poor form. Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim must bring their experience to play in the middle as they have done in the last few games. The side has good hitters of the ball down the order in Afif Hossain, Mahmudullah, Nurul Hasan and Mahedi Hasan and runs would be expected from their bat.
Bangladesh bowlers have struggled in these pitches and failed to maintain consistency. The side would need tight spells with the new ball from Mahedi Hasan and Nasum Ahmed. Mohammad Saifuddin will need to bowl better lines here. Shakib has done well, and he would look to contain the flow of runs with Mustafizur Rahman as England is a powerful batting side.

We would see a hot afternoon at Abu Dhabi on October 27 and the wicket is expected to be dual paced as we have seen in recent matches. Batsmen are likely to have trouble batting here and they would have to play to the merit of the ball. The side that bats first would have to target a score around the 160-run mark to win here.
Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi is known for being a batsman’s paradise, but we have seen a slow surface in recent games. Fast bowlers haven’t fared well here in the past as there is little for them on the track. Spinners have done well as the ball can turn sharply and stop on the batsmen leading to false strokes.
In the last five games played at this venue, the side chasing the score has won on four occasions. We have seen a string of low-scoring games where sides batting first have struggled to make runs. Hence, the side winning the toss would be happy to put the opposition in to bat first.
Bangladesh would be under pressure having lost their first game in the Super 12. Their bowling attack has lacked teeth and the top order has been inconsistent with the bat. They must win this contest to keep their hopes alive. England has ticked all the boxes with their brilliant show in the last game. They have more depth in their batting, and this would make them favorites here.
