Analysis
England’s batting was the main difference between the two sides. Dawid Malan was in brilliant form, and he scored a match-winning century. Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root also made significant contributions. Bangladesh bowlers struggled to contain the England batsmen, with only Mahedi Hasan picking up more than one wicket.
Bangladesh’s batting was also disappointing. They lost wickets at regular intervals, and they were never really in the chase. Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim were the only batsmen who showed any resistance. England bowlers were disciplined and accurate, and they made it difficult for Bangladesh batsmen to score runs.
Conclusion
England’s victory was a comfortable one. They were better in all three departments – batting, bowling, and fielding. Bangladesh will need to improve their batting if they want to compete with the top sides in the tournament.
