The 12th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between England and Bangladesh on Saturday, 8th June.

England after beating South Africa in their opening match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, were brought crashing back down to earth last time as Pakistan beat them by 14 runs at Trent Bridge on Monday

On the other hand, Bangladesh could not replicate their heroics from their opening match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 against South Africa. However, Bangladesh lost to New Zealand by 2 wickets, but there were plenty of positives in their performance to ensure spirits remain high coming into this game.

Key Players of the match

England: Joe Root almost took England to victory with a fluent century in a tough run-chase against Pakistan. The Yorkshireman, who is the leading run-scorer of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament so far, could be the glue that holds the English batting together, with his equal potency against pace and spin.

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, who has been the mainstay of the Bangladesh batting order for the last 5 years, failed to convert his starts on both previous occasions of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. The left-hander, who scored a well compiled 128 in his last outing against the hosts, will look to repeat a similar performance to give his side enough chance on Saturday.
