Hello! It's Day 10 of the ICC World Cup, and action has once once more shifted to Cardiff in Wales, where co-hosts England will take on a assured Bangladesh side.

The Bangla Tigers started well through frightening South Africa and then almost put it past New Zealand. That makes them a perilous workforce, and who knows it higher than England. The English workforce suffered an agonising defeat in opposition to Bangladesh within the 2015 World Cup, which ended in their exit from the event.

But this English workforce knows the right way to win consistently, however that does not rule out the risk that Bangladesh pose beneath darkish skies at the Sophia Gardens. Little-to-no forecast for rain, although.





Here's the Match Preview:

England will face the side who kick-started their transformation into a big risk in one-day internationals when the event hosts continue their World Cup campaign in opposition to Bangladesh in Cardiff on Saturday.

The Tigers condemned Eoin Morgan's men to a first-round exit at the 2015 edition with a 15-run victory in Adelaide.

At that time there used to be not any manner of hiding England's white-ball woes and, with a house World Cup up next, then England and Wales Cricket Board director Andrew Strauss used to be made up our minds the nationwide side's restricted overs form had to reinforce.

To that end, Peter Moores used to be sacked as coach, with Strauss bringing in skilled Australian Trevor Bayliss as his alternative.

Since that debacle 'Down Under', England have risen to to the highest of the one-day international ratings.

But having started their quest to win a first men's World Cup with a 104-run thrashing of South Africa at the Oval, they head into this weekend's conflict at the again of a surprise 14-run defeat through Pakistan.

That fit saw England lose their cool, with opening batsman Jason Roy and speedy bowler Jofra Archer both fined for lapses of their conduct at the field.

Meanwhile if England were frustrated through some of Pakistan's 'verbals', there have been occasions when the massive contingent of fanatics for the sub-continental side -- a not unusual sight even when England are at house -- additionally had an impact.

England all-rounder Chris Woakes, most often essentially the most mild-mannered of cricketers, put his finger to his lips in a bid to 'silence' Pakistan supporters after taking a catch at the boundary.

It may just well be a an identical tale at Sophia Gardens on Saturday, specifically as a number of players on either side who featured in England's ill-tempered 2016 win over Bangladesh in Dhaka are likely to be involved once more.

England speedy bowler Liam Plunkett, who may well be recalled after missing the Pakistan defeat, stated his team-mates knew the right way to maintain their composure.

'The manner they play'

"Pakistan are pretty good like that, they can get niggly. When they're on top they're good at doing it," stated the 34-year-old.

"Similarly Bangladesh and India, they are just right at doing that, just right at appealing relatively a lot. It's just the way they play their cricket.

"But we have performed in big competitions, guys have performed all over the world - at IPL (Indian Premier League) and Big Bash in entrance of huge crowds -- it shouldn't be an excessive amount of for the players." Bangladesh additionally head into the weekend following a defeat after shedding out through two wickets in a aggravating contest with New Zealand.

But Plunkett stated the times when the Tigers were rank outsiders clear of the sub-continent had gone.

"There's no real surprise defeats on this festival," he insisted.

"We've already seen Bangladesh beat South Africa and that's the reason now not a surprise defeat.

"They're a robust squad. I remember after they beat England long ago when (in Bristol, 2010) and it used to be a surprise defeat.


"I don't think them beating groups like South Africa is like that anymore."


Adil Rashid bowled five expensive overs in opposition to Pakistan and, given the leg-spinner's ongoing shoulder harm, England would possibly decide to go away him out on Saturday.


For Bangladesh, a fit at Sophia Gardens sees them again at the scene of one in every of their largest triumphs -- a 2005 ODI win over Australia, then as now global champions, that is arguably the most important upset within the history of international cricket.
