The second One-Day International (ODI) of three-ODI series between Bangladesh and England will be played at the same venue of Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur. England won the first match of the series and will eye for the series in by winning the second one as well, while hosts Bangladesh would look for comeback to remain alive in the series. England did decently in both batting and bowling department in the first ODI. Bangladesh had the chance to get restrict England at a chase able by breaking partnership between Ben Stokes and debutant Ben Duckett by they let them score. Also, while chasing, Imrul Kayes never got support from other end apart from Shakib Al Hasan and one should not expect to win a match over with one batsman performing, especially while chasing the total of above 300.

Frankly, England didn t do anything extra-ordinary but they did what they were expected to. They posted a good total of above 300, which gave their bowlers confidence. While defending, England bowlers just stick to the basics and let Bangladesh batsmen collapse on their own. Had Bangladesh batters played a bit sensibly, then the outcome would have been something else. Well, shifting the focus from first to second ODI, let us take a look at the likely XI of visitors.

Top-order: The top-order of England batting line-up is not expected to be same as opener Jason Roy hurt his shoulder during the first ODI while trying to save a boundary in the 37th over. So one can expected, James Vince and Ben Duckett to start England s batting. Both Vince and Duckett are top order batsmen for their respective county. Moving to number three spot, Sam Billings may get the chance to play in the second ODI as Jonny Bairstow suffered a hip injury during the first ODI. Well, there is no official confirmation over both Roy and Bairstow s injury but they are expected to get rest in the second ODI.

Middle-Order: With some changes in top-order, the middle-order of England can be also expected to have some changes. If Bairstow get to sit out, then Ben Stokes is very likely to move up the order and bat at number four, followed by Liam Dawson, captain and wicket-keeper Jos Buttler and then all rounder Moeen Ali. Also, the pitch of Mirpur was a typical slow batting track and is very unlikely that the next pitch will be used, Dawson can be handy in the side with his left-arm spin bowling as well. After him, there are no changes expected at number six and seven position of England.

Bowling: The bowling department is likely to be same with pacer Chris Woakes, spinner Adil Rashid, followed by David Willey and Jake Ball. Liam Plunkett is still down with his toe-injury, so Ball is likely to play the second ODI, especially after bowling an excellent spell in the first ODI, skipper Buttler would not like his in-form bowler to sit out. Also, not to forget that Stokes and Moeen will be seen in action with the ball as they are another all-rounder in this team of al-rounders. England carry a very deep batting and bowling line up and one should not be surprised if they win the second ODI too.

England likely XI: James Vince, Ben Duckett, Sam Billings, Ben Stokes, Liam Dawson, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Jake Ball.
