ICC CWC 2023 ENG vs BAN Match 7 Details
Match 7 of the ICC CWC 2023 will take place on 10th Oct at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala. Since there are two matches on this day and therefore the match starts at 10:30 AM IST.
The surface is batting-friendly and one can expect the batters can dominate the game. More than 300 runs could be scored here because the dimensions are a little less than 70 m. Hence, it is a small ground and batsmen can clear the boundary ropes easily.
Since the stadium is at a high altitude, the winds blow past the ground and the pacers are likely to get assistance in the air. They can swing the ball nicely and there is a dew factor in the evening and the teams would like to chase the total after winning the toss here.
The venue hosted a few matches but still, the following stats are relevant in the context of the game.

ICC CWC 2023 ENG vs BAN Match Preview
Currently, England is the number 5 ODI team in the latest ICC ODI rankings. The World Champions will come into this fixture with immense confidence. However, they will play seriously the Bangladesh’s bowlers, who are currently in good form. Talking about their squad, they have some fresh faces like Harry Brook, Dawid Malan, Gus Atkinson, Sam Curran, etc. who are playing their first ODI World Cup. Atkinson performed well in the domestic cricket and he exhibits an excellent pace. Harry Brook has been superb from the last year and it will be interesting to see if he opens in some matches.
The ICC conducted the ICC CWC warm-up matches 2023 and both England and Bangladesh played against each other at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. It was a rain-hit game and England bowled first and restricted Bangladesh to 188 for 9 in 37 overs. Reece Topley took 3 wickets while David Willey and Adil Rashid took 2 wickets each. In response, England started well but the wickets kept falling down and in the end, Moeen Ali’s quickfire 56 rescued them and they won it by 4 wickets. England would play Bangladesh’s pacers carefully since they struggled a bit.
The team is performing in bits and pieces but some of their players are in good form. Some new faces are included in the squad like Tanzid Hasan, Towhid Hridoy, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Hasan Mahmud etc. Their star batter Najmul Hossain Shanto has been in tremendous form since last year. Even in the Asia Cup 2023, before injury, he played two matches and made one century and a half-century. He will be the key batter for Bangladesh in this World Cup.
In the recent warm-up match against England, they couldn’t bat well. Mehidy Hasan Miraz was the only batter who scored a half-century. The opener Tanzid Hasan played a good hand of 45 runs.

ICC CWC 2023 ENG vs BAN Betting Tips
England looks solid in both batting and bowling. This looks like smaller ground and runs galore is for sure. Bangladesh has struggled with the batting and this is a huge task for them. Hence, England should win this match, however, Bangladesh will fight well and try to make a comeback in the game.
After taking all the above info and stats into consideration, here is a winning fantasy team for our cricket fantasy users.
England would aim for a dominating win over Bangladesh. The Tigers are a consistent side in the ODIs as compared to their T20Is and Tests performances. They would rely mostly on their bowling but their batters have to step up against a strong England bowling attack. Can they repeat the heroics of the ICC CWC 2011 win or will it be an easy ride for the confident England?
