The 7th match of the ongoing ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will witness a crackerjack of a contest between England and Bangladesh. It will be played at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala and is slated to begin from 2:00 PM (IST).
England are coming on the back of a huge 9-wicket loss at the hands of New Zealand in their first game and would be keen on staging a comeback in this match against Bangladesh. On the other hand, Bangladesh would be desperate to continue their winning momentum, after their 6-wicket victory against Afghanistan in their campaign-opener.
Notably, Bangladesh had whitewashed the Three Lions in March 2023, when the two teams locked horns for a 3-match T20I series in Bangladesh. Shakib Al Hasan and co. would be drawing out confidence and inspiration from that series victory.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain choices for the ENG vs BAN game in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023:
1. Mehidy Hasan Miraz (Bangladesh)
Bangladeshi all-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz bagged the player of the match award in the previous game versus Afghanistan for his all-round prowess. The 25-year-old cricketer scored 57 runs and also bagged 3 wickets.
He would certainly be a threat for the English players and would be looking to weave magic in this game in Dharamshala. We recommend you to make Mehidy Hasan Miraz, the vice-captain of your fantasy team for this ENG vs BAN match.
2. Dawid Malan (England)
England opening batter Dawid Malan can be a good-choice opener in this match. He can fetch you a lot of points in this match, if you repose faith in him. He has been the number 1 T20I batter for a considerable period of time and brims of class and experience.
Malan enjoys an average of 58.9 in this format and is an excellent player in the off-side region in the cricketing field. We can experience the 36-year-old cricketer of England, to have a good performance in this match.
3. Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh)
Unarguably one of the greatest ever players of Bangladesh, Shakib Al Hasan will be a player to watch out for in this ENG vs BAN game at Dharamshala. Shakib has been a force to reckon with in the Asian side and is also skippering the side in this game.
With the ball, he was penetrative in the game versus the Afghans and bagged 3 wickets. As he is the number 1 ODI all-rounder and a proven performer with the ball and with the bat, we highly recommend you to make Hasan, the vice-captain or captain of your fantasy team.
