In the last game, it was a bit difficult to chase down the total with two paced nature, and the bowlers will prove to be vital for winning their respective teams. If the Bangladesh team can not secure a win in this fixture, they will be virtually out of the tournament and every game will be a must win for them with a need of good net run rate.
1. Jonny Bairstow
The opener who is batting in the middle order was impressive in the warmup matches. But the failure in the last match is not expected to bother him much and will need to play his natural game to overcome the Bangladeshi spinners. In 58 T20I matches, he has 1152 runs.
2. Adil Rashid
The leg spinner is quite talented and has an excellent track record in white ball cricket. In the last fixture, Adil scalped 4 wickets at an around 1 which dismantled the batting order of the opposition team. In 63 T20I matches, he has picked up 69 wickets.
3. Moeen Ali
The batting all rounder can be a fine weapon to include in your armoury due to his proven abilities in the all round departments. In the last fixture, he took 2 wickets and would look to use the pitch well to keep dismissing the batters and start contributing with the bat as well.
4. Jos Buttler
The wicket keeper batsman was the top scorer for the team with 24 runs in the last fixture and showed fine resilience in chasing down the total. He has a great experience in handling the pressure and can make use of the bad bowling of the opposition in a fine fashion.
