ICC CWC 2023 ENG vs BAN Match 7 Details
The 7th fixture of the ICC CWC 2023 is set to take place on October 10th at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala. This match will kick off at 10:30 AM IST, as part of the two matches scheduled for the day.
The pitch at this venue is a paradise for batsmen, providing ideal conditions for them to showcase their skills. With the ground’s smaller dimensions and boundaries measuring just under 70 meters, it’s highly likely that teams could rack up scores exceeding 300 runs. This compact ground offers batsmen the opportunity to clear the boundary ropes with ease.
Furthermore, thanks to the stadium’s high-altitude location, pacers can take advantage of swirling winds that assist in skillfully moving the ball. These atmospheric conditions favor swing bowlers, giving them an edge in the match. Additionally, the presence of dew during the evening games makes chasing the total a preferable choice for teams winning the toss, as it may aid their pursuit.

ICC CWC 2023 ENG vs BAN Match Preview
England, currently holding the 5th position in the latest ICC ODI rankings, enters this match with the confidence of being the reigning World Champions. They are well aware of the challenges posed by the in-form bowlers of Bangladesh. England’s squad includes several new faces, such as Harry Brook, Dawid Malan, Gus Atkinson, and Sam Curran, who are making their debut appearance in an ODI World Cup. Atkinson, in particular, has made a mark in domestic cricket with his impressive pace. The role of Harry Brook, who has been in superb form over the past year, adds intrigue, especially regarding his potential opening role in specific matches.
During the ICC CWC warm-up matches in 2023, England and Bangladesh faced off at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. Rain affected this match, with England choosing to bowl first and restricting Bangladesh to 188 for 9 in 37 overs. Reece Topley took 3 wickets, while David Willey and Adil Rashid contributed with 2 wickets each. In their chase, England started well but encountered frequent wicket losses. Ultimately, Moeen Ali’s rapid 56 helped them secure a 4-wicket victory. England is expected to approach Bangladesh’s pacers cautiously, especially considering their previous challenges against them.
The Bangladesh team has displayed somewhat inconsistent performance, with certain players showing good form. Their squad includes some fresh faces such as Tanzid Hasan, Towhid Hridoy, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, and Hasan Mahmud. Star batsman Najmul Hossain Shanto has been in exceptional form for some time now. Even during the Asia Cup 2023, before suffering an injury, he managed to play two matches and produced a century along with a half-century. Shanto is expected to play a pivotal role for Bangladesh in this World Cup.
However, in a recent warm-up match against England, their batting unit struggled to perform at its best. Only Mehidy Hasan Miraz managed to score a half-century, with opener Tanzid Hasan contributing a valuable 45 runs. Notably, skipper Shakib Al Hasan did not get a chance to bat. On the bowling front, Bangladesh bowlers initially fared well, picking up wickets at regular intervals. Mustafizur Rahman was among the wicket-takers with 2 scalps, while the other bowlers chipped in with one wicket each. It will be intriguing to observe how their pacers adapt to the seam-friendly conditions in the upcoming matches.
