Bangladeshís batting has never depended on any particular batsman but has always been a collective team effort. However, the performances of Tamim Iqbal, Junaid Siddique, Shakib Al Hasan and Imrul Kayes hold key as these batsman have shown some form recently and have failed to convert their starts into substantial scores. The failure of senior batsman Mohammad Ashraful, who has scored 12 runs from two innings in the tournament, could be a worry for the home team but Ashraful is a player who can come out of the bad form anytime.
Bangladeshís bowling has been the key to their recent success, especially at home. The left-arm spinners Abdur Razzak and skipper Shakib Al Hasan along with off spinner Mahmudullah could prove enough to destroy the best of the batting line-ups on the sub-continent pitches. Shafiul Islam and Rubel Hossain have done well in the limited opportunities that they could get in the absence of Mashrafe Mortaza.
England have lost Pietersen and Broad to injuries just ahead of this match and this might prove costly as these two were an integral part of the teamís success. Broadís four wickets against South Africa were crucial in the teamís six-run victory. Broad had also taken two five-wicket hauls in the practice games. Pietersen too had settled well in the role of an opener providing decent starts along with Andrew Strauss.
This would mean that a lot will now depend on how Strauss, Jonathan Trott and Ian Bell handle their roles to perfection. Ravi Bopara too proved his providence with a measured 60 runs against South Africa. Eoin Morgan is expected in the playing eleven and Matt Prior could be asked to open the batting. Prior was the original choice for the openerís slot before Pietersen stepped in for change of roles. Englandís bowling is still decent with the availability James Anderson, Graeme Swann and Tim Bresnan.
Why watch this match?
Bangladesh are like a wounded tigers looking to make up for the performance against Windies in the previous game. They would be playing to bring the confidence their fans had in them and also silence their critics. England would also be hoping to end their quarterfinal doubts with a win and start preparing for the knockout games.
Players to look out for:
Tamim Iqbal has given many a memorable starts for Bangladesh but has not really fired to his potential in the tournament thus far. He had scores of 70, 44 and 0 in the three matches. Jonathan Trott is in middle of a decent run and would like to continue in the same vein. In the absence of Pietersen, he could prove the man who can provide solidity to the England batting order in the middle overs....being a human...
