Bangladesh vs England 1st Test Day 1 Highlights on 20 October 2016, Watch Ban vs Eng 1st Test Day 1 Cricket Highlights 2016. Bangladesh will host England in a two match test series, after going down 2-1 to them in the ODI series preceding the test matches. It was a heartbreaking loss for the Tigers, who has plenty of chances to scoop yet another home ODI series win.
With the limited overs games out of the way, the focus shifts to the test match arena, where Bangladesh has been less successful in recent times. With home-ground advantage many are predicting that they will give England a run for their money, with the tourists bringing in plenty of young and inexperienced players. Mushfiqur Rahim will return as Captain for the Tigers, and always leads from the front. Tamim Iqbal will be his deputy, and will need to show a lot more patience if he is to hurt the England bowling attack with his attacking style of play. Bangladesh are now a settled side with enough experience on the field to topple any top tier test playing nation, they simply need to click as a team and show more patience and the results will come.
Zafar Ansari and Haseeb Hameed are two England youngsters that might just crack the nod for their first test matches, but the selectors are expected to stick to the tried and tested for the first of two test matches. 38-year old Gareth Batty also returns for what will probably be his last chance to play for England, with the likes of Joe Root being rested for the tour. Alistair Cook returns to Captain the England side, after Joss Butler did duty in the ODI series.
The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is known to be slow at time, and the Captain winning the toss will certainly look to make first use of the wicket with the bat in hand.
