Bangladesh is taking on the hosts England at Cardiff, Wales today. The match is underway and England is looking on song at the moment with 85-0 in less than fifteen overs.
Bangladesh won the toss and put England into bat. The wicket looks very much in favor of the batsmen. Morning breeze and early start prompted Murtaza to bowl first. English batsmen, Roy and Root, tackled and coped with the swinging ball with the utmost ease. Both batsmen are looking confident. They are nailing Bangladeshi pace and spin attack at the moment, across all parts of the ground.
England lost to Pakistan in their previous encounter in this ICC CRICKET WORLD CUP, 2019. The hosts were beaten by 14 runs. England defeated South Africa in the opening match of the event.

Bangladesh made a promising start to the event. They defeated South Africa which can be considered a big upset. But they outclassed South Africa in all departments to secure two points. The Tigers lost to New Zealand a couple of days ago. Bengal tigers put up an excellent fight before losing by two wickets.
Australia and New Zealand are at the top of the points table with four points each. Afghanistan and South Africa are yet to win a game.
The event is wide open and there is still plenty to come. All the teams have to play against one another before the four semi-finalists are selected on the basis of points and run rates (if required).
