Bangladesh are likely to face the strong Indian team in their first encounter in the quarters. Mahmudullah, the centurian for Bangladesh team was adjudged the Man of the Match award for his brilliant knock that saw the Ban team see through against a string bowling attack like England who had started brilliantly with 4 wickets felling under 150 Runs.
With England expecting to win both remaining pool matches to keep their quarter-finals hope alive, Morgan won the toss and chose to field, trusting his bowlers would profit by the early morning conditions. Morgan set an attacking field with a three-man slip cordon and Anderson sufficiently discovered development to instigate two edges in his initial seven balls, diminishing Bangladesh to eight for two.
Mahmudullah discovered a capable partner in Rahim and the pair kept the scoreboard ticking over. Mahmudullah looked a basket case approaching the 100-imprint, which he inevitably arrived at in the 44th over, hurrying for a solitary before setting out on a passionate festival with Rahim.
