Earlier in the innings, Bangladesh top-order got off to starts but could not capitalise on it, except Shanto who stood with the bat with his knock of 58 runs. Although, once he fell no other batter could produce a vital knock. Eventually, they were bundled out for 209 runs. For England, it was a rather collective bowling effort. All the bowlers chipped in and had their say with the ball in hand.
Bangladesh were on top early on with their electrifying start with the ball. Keeping in mind that they were defending a low target, the spinners did really well to control the run flow and take wickets at a regular interval. Although, the bowler could not keep things in the death overs and that cost them the game. Taijul Islam was the stand out performer with his three-wicket haul. Bangladesh would take a lot of positive from this game and there are certainly a side who can make a stong comeback at home turf.
This has been a good fightback from England. The visitors were off to a horrendous start as they Jason Roy in the very first over. The pressure kept on mounting as at one stage, they were teetering at 65/4 when Jos Buttler departed. Dawid Malan who came in a lot early at the crease, managed to bat throughout the innings to get his side over the line. The conditions were trickier for any batter, although Malan gave himself a lot of time to find his groove. Once he did that there was no stopping him. Later, the experince of Malan and Adil Rashid, down the order, helped them get over the line here.
A fantastic victory for England. They have taken an early lead in this series. Bangladesh though surely gave a run for their money but could not capitalize on it by the end of it.
