Bangladesh are set to cross swords against England in the second One-day International of the three-match series on March 3 at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Dhaka. A victory in the match will help England take an unassailable lead in the series as they emerged victorious in the opening encounter, beating the hosts by 3 wickets. On the other hand, Bangladesh will try to improve their game and aim to make a comeback. Their batting department which looked quite pale in the last game will need to show more composition in order to overcome the in-from English side.
Batting first, Bangladesh managed to post a mere total of 209 runs. Najmul Hossain Shanto made the majority of the contribution, adding 58 runs to the scoresheet, while others put up a disastrous performance. England also could not begin the chase as per the expectations and lost both of their openers early. However, a gutsy knock from Dawid Malan sailed them across the victory. The middle-order batter smashed a match-winning century, scoring an unbeaten 114 off 145 deliveries. Will Jacks, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid played some crucial cameos, assisting Malan in the latter phase. The visiting unit brought the chase down with 8 balls left to spare.
