While Bangladesh needs to recover from the debacle against West Indies, England have to rethink their strategy in the absence of two key players.

Venue: Chittagong Divisional Stadium, Chittagong

Toss will be crucial and the captain winning it will have no hesitation in batting first.

Team News

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Shariar Nafees, Junaid Siddique, Mishfiqur Rehman, Shakib-al-Hasan, Raqibul Hasan, Mahmudullah, Naeem Islam, Shafiul Islam, Absur Razzaq, Rubel Hossain.

After the West Indies embarrassment, changes will happen with Nafees replacing Imrul Kayes and Mahmudullah coming in for Mohammad Ashraful.

England: Andrew Strauss, Matt prior, Jonathan Trott, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Eoin Morgan, Tim Bresnan, Chris Tremlett, Graeme Swann, James Anderson

Kevin Pietersen and Stuart Broad have returned home with injuries meaning Eoin Morgan and Chris Tremlett will replace them. Big issue is who will open with Strauss.

Prediction

England will need a new approach with Pietersen and Broad being ruled out but the return of Morgan strengthens the middle order.

After an inspired comeback against South Africa, England will be favourites, but they have been known to let the Barmy Army down in the past.

If Bangladesh’s spinners can get the ball to turn and their batsmen score heavily England will be in trouble.

The co-hosts need to start winning to stand any chance of making the quarter-finals.

England to win, but it will be a rollercoaster.

Key Men

Tamim Iqbal – An explosive opener with all the shots in the book.

Andrew Strauss – The man in form with the ability to bat for long periods.
