Match 12 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be a clash between England and Bangladesh. The hosts come onto this match in the back of a minor hiccup, namely a loss to Pakistan. Bangladesh, have been boosted by their victory over South Africa, but lost to New Zealand
The hosts look likely to opt for four seamers for the clash with Bangladesh, so the likes of Adil Rashid could be left high and dry. His poor performance in the last match, does little to help his cause.
