England is now playing at the top of their cricketing skill. Although the ODI squad is in Bangladesh for a three-match ODI series and three-match T20I series, the Test team is currently playing in New Zealand. England has taken a 1-0 series lead after winning the first game by a margin of three wickets. Both teams gave it their all during the game, which took place at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, to win the series.
Bangladesh chose to bat first after winning the toss. Bangladesh’s total was raised to 209 thanks to the contributions of Najmul Hossain Shanto (58 off 82 deliveries) and Mahmudullah (31 off 48 deliveries). England thought it would be simple to chase down the score, but Bangladesh, playing at home, is a different team, as England was reminded. Bangladesh briefly reduced England to 65/4 while they were chasing 209, but Dawid Malan produced a strong innings of 114* off 145 deliveries and assisted England in bringing down the score.
