BN-Y vs EN-Y Dream11 Team: Hosts England look to record their first win of the series after receiving a drubbing at India’s hands
One of the most important and expansive ODI series before the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup slated for 2020, the Tri-Nation U19 Series is set to see its second chapter be rolled out today when hosts England take on Bangladesh. The match follows up from yesterday’s opening encounter between India U19 and England U19 where the visitors ended up trouncing the home side by 5 wickets.
For the English side, the defeat against India is bound to have hurt. Playing in their own backyard, having assembled a squad full of some star performers from the County Championship Division 2 and Vitality Blast, the performance of the England U19 was a horrid one. They were completely outshone by India U19 in all departments of the game, failing to ever make an impact in the match as India sealed a runaway 5 wicket win to their name.
Coming out to bat first, England’s predicament was born out of their inability to go on and convert the 20s into big scores. Tom Clark, Jack Haynes and Hill all got decent little scores but apart from Lewis Goldsworthy’s 58, no one really went onto take the onus on themselves of delivering a decisive performance, seeing England being bundled out for a mere 204 as they failed to even play out their quota of overs.
And the bowling performance didn’t merit any laurels either, with the home side allowing India to hammer down a 5 wicket win as the U19 side avenged the main side’s loss to England at the gone by CWC. Harrowing from that defeat, England are back at it again today against Bangladesh U19, a side they’ll be looking to inflict the same damage on as India did to them and finally make some headway in the series.
Although England massively failed to impress, there were glimpses of some promising individual performances which the side will be looking to build on today. Their batting order collapsed as a unit but the skill set and acumen to craft out long, well made innings is clearly there and if their bats can apply themselves in the middle today, a big score is extremely likely.
England are bound to win this one and record their first win of the series on the basis of a better batting and bowling unit which should intertwine fruitfully to put down Bangladesh.
Wicket-Keeper for BN-Y vs EN-Y Dream11
With Jen Cox’s availability still an unsure proposition given he had recently played for Kent Spitfires in the Vitality League, we have gone ahead with Bangladesh’s Akbar Ali for this encounter. He’s the safest pick out of the available options given that he is bound to start for his team.
Batsmen for BN-Y vs EN-Y Dream11
Tom Clark retains his place in our side after he impressed albeit for a short period of time against India. Alongside him we are getting in Jack Haynes, another batsman who managed to get into the 20s before eventually losing his wicket. The ability is clearly present in abundance in both these bats and on a surface which will only play better today having settled down from day 1, we envision these two rising to the occasion today.
From Bangladesh it’s the sole selection of Mahmudul Hasan Joy who comes in for us.
All-Rounders for BN-Y vs EN-Y Dream11
Top scorer for his side with a 58 run knock against India, Lewis Goldsworthy impressed us not only with his resolve and valour but the perseverance to keep waging a lone battle as wickets tumbled all around. It was a solid innings, one that ensured that England were able to cross 200 and we only see him going onto get a bigger score today.
He’s going to be partnered by George Hill for this one while from Bangladesh we have gone ahead with their best batsman in the form of Shamim Hossain. With 299 runs in 10 innings that include 3 50s, he been the one player for the side who has kept coming up with the runs.
Bowling Order for BN-Y vs EN-Y Dream11
The last time these two sides had squared off against each other in January, the one reoccurring theme had been Bangladesh losing a slew of wickets. And we don’t see that changing today either, especially on conditions which will play into the kitty of England’s bowling line-up.
Based on that narrative, we have Hamidullah Qadri, Blake Cullen and Kasey Aldridge form a dauntless trio for us while Tanzim Hassan is going to be our last pick from Bangladesh.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Goldsworthy is chosen as our captain for this encounter with us going ahead with Aldridge as the vice-captain.
