Markram led the side in the previous match and dominated England’s side with a brilliant batting performance as they made 399 for 5 in 50 overs and bowled out England for 170 registering their biggest-ever win over England.
On the other hand, Bangladesh lost their previous match against India. Despite Liton Das’s and other batters’ performances, Bangla Tigers made just 256 for 8 in 50 overs. Their bowling was not great as they lost the match by 7 wickets.
