England vs. Bangladesh ODI World Cup 2023: England, the defending champions, are set to face Bangladesh at Dharamsala’s HPCA Stadium in a crucial match. England seeks redemption after a humbling defeat in their tournament opener against the same opponent they defeated four years ago to claim their maiden ODI World Cup title. The loss has stung England’s pride, and they are determined to make a strong comeback today.

England might have to do without Ben Stokes once again, as the all-rounder has been sidelined for over a month. In addition, England’s captain, Jos Buttler, has expressed dissatisfaction with the Dharamsala outfield and cautioned his teammates about fielding on it. The ICC has rated the outfield as average following the Bangladesh-Afghanistan fixture last Saturday.

Jos Buttler, England’s captain, acknowledges the need for improvement: We didn’t play as well as we can in the last game, and you’re always desperate to put that right, both individually and as a team. So, there’s plenty of hunger in the group, and we’re excited to get back on the field.

Considering Dharamsala’s historical favoring of seamers, Buttler hinted at the possibility of including an extra pacer instead of a spinner: There can be some good pace and bounce in the wicket. So certainly, we’ll have those discussions, and we’ve got fantastic options within the squad to put out different lineups with a different balance, and yeah, certainly something we’ll consider.
