Mortaza: We will bowl first. This pitch has been underneath duvet for the final two days. We preferred to but we are sticking with the same group. Last fit used to be disappointing but with a bit of luck we can bounce back. We have to play at our very best to overcome this England group.

TOSS NEWS: Mashrafe Mortaza wins the toss and Bangladesh have made up our minds to bowl first.

Hello! It's Day 10 of the ICC World Cup, and action has as soon as again shifted to Cardiff in Wales, the place co-hosts England will take on a confident Bangladesh aspect.

The Bangla Tigers began neatly by scary South Africa after which almost put it past New Zealand. That makes them a dangerous group, and who is aware of it better than England. The English group suffered an agonising defeat in opposition to Bangladesh within the 2015 World Cup, which resulted in their go out from the match.

But this English group is aware of how to win consistently, but that does not rule out the risk that Bangladesh pose underneath darkish skies at the Sophia Gardens. Little-to-no forecast for rain, although.

Here's the Match Preview:

England will face the aspect who kick-started their transformation into a major risk in one-day internationals when the match hosts continue their World Cup marketing campaign in opposition to Bangladesh in Cardiff on Saturday.

The Tigers condemned Eoin Morgan's men to a first-round go out at the 2015 version with a 15-run victory in Adelaide.

At that time there used to be no longer any manner of hiding England's white-ball woes and, with a house World Cup up next, then England and Wales Cricket Board director Andrew Strauss used to be made up our minds the nationwide aspect's limited overs form had to strengthen.

To that finish, Peter Moores used to be sacked as trainer, with Strauss bringing in experienced Australian Trevor Bayliss as his substitute.

Since that debacle 'Down Under', England have risen to to the highest of the one-day world scores.

But having began their quest to win a first men's World Cup with a 104-run thrashing of South Africa at the Oval, they head into this weekend's clash at the back of a marvel 14-run defeat by Pakistan.

That fit saw England lose their cool, with opening batsman Jason Roy and speedy bowler Jofra Archer both fined for lapses of their habits at the field.

Meanwhile if England had been pissed off by a few of Pakistan's 'verbals', there were instances when the massive contingent of enthusiasts for the sub-continental aspect -- a not unusual sight even when England are at house -- also had an impact.

England all-rounder Chris Woakes, typically probably the most mild-mannered of cricketers, put his finger to his lips in a bid to 'silence' Pakistan supporters after taking a catch at the boundary.

It may just neatly be a equivalent story at Sophia Gardens on Saturday, specifically as a number of gamers on both sides who featured in England's ill-tempered 2016 win over Bangladesh in Dhaka usually are concerned again.

England speedy bowler Liam Plunkett, who might be recalled after missing the Pakistan defeat, said his team-mates knew how to handle their composure.

'The manner they play'

"Pakistan are pretty good like that, they can get niggly. When they're on top they're good at doing it," said the 34-year-old.

"Similarly Bangladesh and India, they are excellent at doing that, excellent at interesting somewhat so much. It's just the best way they play their cricket.

"But we now have performed in big competitions, guys have performed around the world - at IPL (Indian Premier League) and Big Bash in front of big crowds -- it shouldn't be an excessive amount of for the gamers." Bangladesh also head into the weekend following a defeat after losing out by two wickets in a stressful contest with New Zealand.

But Plunkett said the days when the Tigers had been rank outsiders away from the sub-continent had long past.

"There's no real shock defeats on this competition," he insisted.

"We've already seen Bangladesh beat South Africa and that's no longer a shock defeat.

"They're a robust squad. I keep in mind when they beat England way back when (in Bristol, 2010) and it used to be a shock defeat.

"I do not believe them beating teams like South Africa is like that anymore."

Adil Rashid bowled five pricey overs in opposition to Pakistan and, given the leg-spinner's ongoing shoulder damage, England would possibly come to a decision to leave him out on Saturday.

For Bangladesh, a fit at Sophia Gardens sees them back at the scene of one among their biggest triumphs -- a 2005 ODI win over Australia, then as now world champions, this is arguably the most important disappointed within the history of world cricket.
