Bangladesh vs England: 2nd ODI; Oct 9, 2016 at Mirpur

Postby Misty » Sat Oct 08, 2016 4:57 am

Bangladesh ODI Squad:

Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Al-Amin Hossain, Imrul Kayes, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Mosharraf Hossain, Mushfiqur Rahim, Nasir Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Shafiul Islam, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Tamim Iqbal, Taskin Ahmed,


England ODI squad:

Jos Buttler(c), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Sam Billings, Liam Dawson, Ben Duckett, Steven Finn, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Chris Woakes,

The first game was a timely advertisement for ODI cricket. It had recovery acts from both sides that turned into domination, debutants giving a great early account of themselves, a batsman who redefined his style and an allrounder taking giant strides. Then of course there was Bangladesh having batting and fielding calamities, but it all added up to the spectacle.

The Mirpur crowd felt enthralled for much of the game. Given how Bangladesh floundered during the final scene, they can expect another dramatic encounter in the second match given how they will be desperate to level the series.

England will push to secure the series, and to do so they first need Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow to be fit for Sunday. Roy suffered a shoulder injury while diving in the outfield while Bairstow has a hip flexor strain. Jake Ball, who took the debut five-for, also felt the physical pressure of bowling a late spell in the climbing humidity. The England support staff will have had their hands full on Saturday.

Ben Stokes will once again be expected to weigh in with his burgeoning role of the batting enforcer at No. 5. He will be pleased to see how he thwarted the spinners with different skills, a further sign of his evolution as an international batman in conditions that previously he - and England - could have lost their way in.

Bangladesh will be going through the customary soul-searching that accompanies such collapses. They will also have to find a way to stretch their batting order because Mashrafe Mortaza, for all his good form with the ball, can't buy a run at No. 8. Mushfiqur Rahim's form is also starting to be a worry while their fielding has room for improvement.

Bangladesh LWLWW
England WLWWW

He made a scintillating hundred in the first ODI, to follow his ton in the warm-up match for the BCB XI, but Imrul Kayes suffered cramps and ultimately was dismissed at a critical stage. The England bowlers will now have a better idea to bowl at him, which will be Imrul's next challenge.

Jake Ball only made his debut on Friday after Liam Plunkett couldn't recover from his toe injury. Barring fitness worries, Ball will certainly be involved in the remaining two games after his five-wicket haul secured an improbable win and built on the positive reputation he has forged in his early days around the England set-up. As he sat in a drenched shirt after his match-winning spell on Friday, he said he had never felt his knees sweat before.

While Soumya Sarkar will have a hard time returning to the XI because Imrul's hundred has blocked his path, there is now a stronger argument for Nasir Hossain and Al-Amin Hossain. They could take the places of Mosaddek Hossain and Mosharraf Hossain, the latter who also injured his hand in the last game.

Bangladesh (probable): 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Imrul Kayes, 3 Sabbir Rahman, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 5 Shakib Al Hasan, 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Mosaddek Hossain, 8 Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), 9 Mosharraf Hossain, 10 Shafiul Islam, 11 Taskin Ahmed

Roy and Bairstow are injury concerns so that might leave a tricky situation for England who would have preferred to go into the second game with the winning combination. Sam Billings and Liam Dawson will be on high alert. Even if he his fit, Plunkett could find it difficult to regain his spot after Ball's display.

England (probable) 1 Jason Roy, 2 James Vince, 3 Ben Duckett, 4 Jonny Bairstow, 5 Ben Stokes, 6 Jos Buttler (capt & wk), 7 Moeen Ali, 8 Chris Woakes, 9 Adil Rashid, 10 David Willey, 11 Jake Ball

Mirpur offered a typically slow batting pitch for the first contest, and it is unlikely the next pitch used will be any different. Rain also remains in the weather forecast, particularly late in the afternoon.

•Tamim Iqbal is 52 runs away from becoming the first Bangladesh batsman to score 5,000 runs in ODIs; Mushfiqur needs 12 runs for 4000.

•Stokes needs 13 runs to reach 1000 in ODIs

•Ball became the first England bowler to take a five-wicket haul on ODI debut.

"I think a lot of guys will take confidence from the way we played. We have proved ourselves that we can play in the fashion we want to in these conditions. We were brave to do that we took it on and that was probably one of the most pleasing things."
England captain Jos Buttler on how they didn't stop being aggressive in sub-continent conditions

"We have every chance to return to the series. I think we have no alternative but to think positively."
Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza on their mindset for the second ODI.

England win toss, Fields first in the second game

How can England even justify this tour, just a waste of time.

Fifty partnership takes England to 98/4 but still on the back foot. Looks like tough batting conditions judging by Bangladesh score

134/8? Embarrassing, England. Credit to Bangladesh for defending a lower total - though no doubt it's a tough pitch. Lower order runs from Bangladesh helped them get up to 230 and England will regret that but butler has shown that you can bat on the pitch! Weak batting performance this time round by England. Well played BD

Think South Africa will find it harder to justify the Australia series :)
