In this decade, Bangladesh have perennially haunted England in big games and the last time the sides met, the former had managed to pull off a Test victory. The ODI series played prior saw moments where players from both sides came close to exchange blows. There is much more to this contest. Both sides have improved tremendously since 2015 World Cup. England s win-loss ratio is the best amongst all major sides, reading an impressive 1.93. Bangladesh s win-loss ratio reads 1.6, the best out of all subcontinent sides (India 1.25, Pakistan 0.8 and Sri Lanka 0.65). England s turn to reverse the tide

England have registered 25 ODI wins at this venue, their most at any ground, followed by 23 at Lord s. They clearly love winning in London. However, in ICC events, they have lost 3 out of 5 games at this venue. Bangladesh registered their first ever win against England at Bristol in 2010 courtesy a 5-run thriller. Since then, Bangladesh have beaten England four times in their last seven encounters.
