ENG vs BAN Dream11 Prediction | England vs Bangladesh ICC World Cup 2019

After facing an unexpected 14 runs drubbing at the hands of Pakistan, England will be up against another subcontinent side- Bangladesh on Saturday noon. The twelfth match of ICC CWC 2019 will be played between England and Bangladesh at Sophia Garden, Cardiff on Saturday afternoon.

Both the teams announced themselves in style with convincing wins in the opening fixture but faced unexpected defeats in the second encounter.  The 14 runs defeat at the hands of Pakistan was a wake-up call for England who started their campaign with a massive 104 runs win over South Africa. The same was the case with Bangladesh who secured 21 runs win in their opening game against South Africa and lost the second game against New Zealand by 2 wickets.

While it’s good that the sides have seen two contrasting results in the opening two encounters, let’s see who has better control of the nerves when it’s most needed.
