Bangladesh will lock horns with England in the 1st ODI match of the England tour of Bangladesh at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur on Wednesday (March 1). Bangladesh and England have quite the opposite recent records in ODIs. England just broke their losing streak with a win against South Africa in a dead rubber, while Bangladesh have won three of their last five matches and seems to be in relatively good form.
Shere Bangla National Stadium offers a pitch which is primarily batter friendly. The pacers will have fun here due to the double-paced nature of the pitch. They will enjoy good swing and bounce and can be seen troubling the batters. Teams would like to bat first as the pitch will deteriorate with time, and the average first innings score is 225.
