Team News

Both teams have well settled playing XI going into the tournament opener of the Champions Trophy so a surprise in playing XI from either of the team is very unlikely.


  • Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, and Chris Woakes missed the last game against South Africa on May 29. They are expected to be back for this clash.
  • English captain Eoin Morgan said that Jason Roy will play tomorrow’s match despite his form and Jonny Bairstow will have to sit out in this match.
  • Mark Wood is the likely opening bowling pair along with Chris Woakes but they might also consider David Willey as he brings variety with his left-arm angle.


  • They are likely to not tinker with the line-up that played recently against Ireland and New Zealand.
  • So, this means Imrul Kayes is likely to sit out and Soumya Sarkar will be given the opening duty along with Tamim Iqbal.
  • Among the pace bowling options, they have Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, and Shafiul Islam to chose the third bowling option. Looking at the current form, Rubel Hossain is likely to get the nod.

Probable Playing XI: (In the Batting order)

England: Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood.

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar/Imrul Kayes, Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Mehedi Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain.

  • At the options where players are separated by slash ‘/’, the first player mentioned is the more likely to play.
