Bangladesh is going to host England for the first match of the three-match ODI series at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium.
For England, things are not looking very good at the moment when it comes to ODIs. Recently, they have lost four games.
Moreover, some of England’s key players will not be a part of this ODI series which is another setback for them.
However, they will still run high on confidence as they have a great record against Bangladesh when it comes to ODIs.
Additionally, this series is a great opportunity for the Three Lions to practice in sub-continent conditions before the upcoming 50-over World Cup in India.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh are a force to reckon with at home conditions as they have won their last seven ODIs at home.
Therefore, they will be pretty confident of beating their visitors as they know of their recent poor form in ODIs.
Thus, we will have a great game tomorrow between these two sides and we can also expect a high-scoring clash.
