It’s Match 12 of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 with hosts England set to take on Bangladesh in Cardiff. Both teams suffered close defeats in their previous outings and will be eager to set things right. England go in as favourites, but in a tournament such as this, tags don’t count for much. Bangladesh have competed amazingly well in their two games and should they come out on top on Saturday, it won’t be an upset.

Bangladesh have won the toss and elected to field
No great surprise there. Bowling first has been the go to option so far in this tournament and I wouldn’t expect that to change.
Just the one change across the two teams, with Liam Plunkett coming back into the side. Moeen Ali makes way for him, so Joe Root is England’s second spinner today. Plenty of seam options though on this green pitch. Bangladesh play the same XI who lost narrowly to New Zealand on Wednesday.
