BAN vs ENG, 3rd T20I, Live
We are back. Philip Salt and Dawid Malan to open for England. Tanvir Islam to bowl first.
Bangladesh will be slightly disappointed but still have a par score on the board. They would have loved around 180 though. The way they started and way Litton Das and Najmul Hossain Shanto were punishing the bowlers the score was on but Das slowed down as he got past his fifty and since then, the runs were hard to buy for Bangladesh. The pitch has got demons but if one of England's batters go onto play a big innings, they should definitely chase this down.
Excellent recovery from England as at one point 180 was looking very gettable score but the way England bowled in the final phase, they deserved the praise. It could have been better if they started with the same energy. Sloppy fielding and drop catches didn't help them as Litton Das made the most of the lifeline while due to fielding, the pressure was never created. England though have given themselves a chance by pulling things back quite nicely.
