Winning the toss, Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah chose to bat, bringing in Shoriful Islam for Mohammad Saifuddin, while English captain Eoin Morgan played with an unchanged side. Bangladesh was off to a panicky start, losing Liton Das (9), Mohammad Naim (5) and Shakib Al Hasan (4) within the sixth over of the Powerplay, with just 26 runs on the board.

The pair of Mushfiqur Rahim (29) and Mahmudullah (19) put up a 37-run partnership for the fourth wicket before the former was trapped leg-before by spinner Liam Livingstone in the 11th, followed by Afif Hossain (5) off an unfortunate run out in the 13th, at 73. At the same time, Mahmudullah too was dismissed by the same man, ten runs later, in the 15th.

At 98, Mahedi Hasan (11) fell to pacer Tymal Mills in the 18th. Although Bangladesh struggled with enough partnerships, Nurul Hasan (16) and Nasum Ahmed (19*) ensured that Bangladesh reached 124/9 at the end of the 20th over. While six English bowlers were used, Mills bagged three, as pacer Chris Woakes was massively economical.

In reply, England lost Jos Buttler (18) to spinner Nasum early in the fifth over of the PP, with 35 runs on the board. However, fellow opener Jason Roy (61) and Dawid Malan (28*) produced a practical 73-run stand for the second wicket that was enough to push the Bangladeshis onto the backfoot.

After scoring his seventh T20I half-century, Roy fell to pacer Shoriful in the 13th, while Malan, along with Jonny Bairstow (8*), saw out the chase, with England winning by eight wickets within the 15th over. Five Bangladeshi bowlers were put into the attack, with only a couple striking, while pacer Mustafizur Rahman was the most economical from his side.
Brief scores: Bangladesh 124/9 (Rahim- 29; Livingstone- 2/15) lost to England 126/2 in 14.1 overs (Roy- 61; Shoriful- 1/26) by eight wickets.
