Recent Match Report – England vs Bangladesh 1st T20I 2022/23

Toss bangladesh won the coin toss and elected to bowl England

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan decided to bowl after winning the toss against England in the first T20I at Chattogram, the first match of the first bilateral T20I series between the two teams (this is only the second time Bangladesh and England face each other in the format).

The pitch is the same pitch used for the third ODI on 6 March, where Bangladesh batted first and scored 246 before England fell 50 runs short. At the Bangladesh Premier League T20 tournament earlier this year, the average score in the first innings at the venue was 162. The pitch is expected to remain quite dry and sluggish, both for pacers and spinners.
England have omitted legspinner Rehan Ahmed and fast bowler Reece Topley, who is harboring a problem, from their 13-man squad. Bangladesh has given a T20I debut to first-class batsman Towhid Hridoy, Rony Talukdar has returned to a Bangladesh XI in any form after eight years, and Shamim Hossain has returned after making his last T20I appearance in 2021.

bangladesh: 1 Rony Talukdar, 2 Najmul Hossain Shanto, 3 Litton Das (wk), 4 Shakib Al Hasan (capt), 5 Towhid Hridoy, 6 Afif Hossain, 7 Shamim Hossain, 8 Taskin Ahmed, 9, Nasum Ahmed, 10 Hasan Mahmud, 11 Mustafizur Rahman
