The defending champions England are gearing up for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, which is just a few days away. They will take on Bangladesh in their second warm-up match leading into the World Cup on Monday, October 2 at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. Their first warm-up match was washed out due to rain.
England recently defeated Ireland in the three-match ODI series before flying to India for the World Cup. They also defeated New Zealand earlier this year 3-1 in a four-match ODI series. Meanwhile, Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka in their first warm-up match. They chased down 264 runs comfortably with seven wickets to spare.
