SKY SPORTS cricket man Joe Drablle (@Joe_Drabs) takes a look at England’s crucial Cricket World Cup clash against Bangladesh.
England v Bangladesh | Monday 03.30 | Sky Sports 2
It’s do-or-die time for England, who know that anything other than a victory over Bangladesh in Adelaide will see their World Cup campaign over before it’s barely begun.
Bangladesh have had the better of England in recent times, too, winning two of their previous three ODI meetings, including in the World Cup four years ago.
That said, I still expect England to come through this one, but won’t be backing them at 2/7. Eoin Morgan’s men can expect a trial by spin bowling in Adelaide and so I’ll be looking at which players play slow bowling the best.
Ian Bell and Morgan stand out and are both in decent form. I’ll take the 5/6 on Bell to score Over 35.5 Runs with Coral and also have a slice of him at 11/2 Top Match Batsman. Morgan also appeals, especially at 14/1.
In the bowling stakes, Moeen Ali should enjoy these conditions and is a huge 12/1 to be Top Match Bowler. Tuck in.
England v Bangladesh – Ian Bell to score Over 33.5 Runs (5/6 Coral)
England v Bangladesh – Ian Bell to be Top Match Batsman (11/2 Coral)
England v Bangladesh – Eoin Morgan to be Top Match Batsman (14/1 Paddy Power)
England v Bangladesh – Moeen Ali to be Top Match Bowler (12/1 Stan James)
