BAN vs ENG 1st T20 Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report | BAN vs ENG 1st T20 Dream11 Prediction Today | Chattogram Pitch Report

Bangladesh pushed England in the first ODI and then won the third, but attention now moves to a format they struggle with. The Tigers have won just six of 20 T20Is since the start of last year, with two coming against Zimbabwe, two against UAE and one against Netherlands. The next T20 World Cup, to be played in 2024, is already approaching quite quickly, so any chance to build confidence is crucial.

And there is no better test than the current world champions. Despite England missing some regulars due to scheduling challenges, the tourists still possess some world class talent. Jos Buttler is a huge threat at the top as always, while the all-round duo of Moeen Ali and Sam Curran promises to be very dangerous in the middle.

Expect England to go hard at Bangladesh. How will the Tigers respond? We shall see.

A clear and hot afternoon is forecast, with a top of about 33 degrees.
