How predictions stood for the second T20I between Bangladesh and England

The Mirpur weather is expected to be partly sunny, breezy on Tuesday afternoon. It will be a hot afternoon with the temperature around 32-35 degree Celsius.
Bangladesh vs England – Match Predictions
Bangladesh bowlers have been superb in the first two matches. But despite a weakened batting line-up, England simply haven’t batted to their potential. Expect the visitors to get their act together in the third game to avoid a clean sweep.
England to hit most sixes
Mehidy to be Bangladesh's Top Bowler
England boasts of some terrific ball strikers in Jos Buttler, Phil Salt, Dawid Malan, Moeen Ali and Sam Curran. They have hit seven sixes in the series compared to three from Bangladesh. Bangladesh batters lack power and rely more on traditional strokes.
Our Prediction: England to hit most sixes in the match at 3/5 (1.60).
Mehidy Hasan Miraz is coming off a career-best 4 for 12 in the previous game. The off-spinner will have plenty of left handers to target and you can back him to be the top wicket-taker for Bangladesh at 5/1 (6.00). For England, Sam Curran looked good in the second game and could be a good bet to be the top bowler for England at 5/1 (6.00) odds.
Our Prediction: Mehidy Hasan Miraz to be the highest wicket-taker for Bangladesh at 5/1 (6.00).
Man of the Match
The England captain scored a half century in the first match but was dismissed cheaply in the second. Buttler has a terrific record and remains a top candidate to be the player of the match at 11/2 (6.50). Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Moeen Ali and Najmul Hossain Shanto are amongst other good betting options.
Our Prediction: Jos Buttler to be the Man of the Match at 11/2 (6.50) odds.
Bangladesh vs England Preview
The world champions have been lackluster in the T20 series but would want to end the tour on a high. Let’s take a look at both sides before they meet on Tuesday.
Bangladesh bowlers have done an excellent job in the series, first restricting them to 156/6 and even better to just 117 in the second game. Mehidy Hasan Miraz snared 4 for 12 in the second game while Najmul Hossain Shanto followed his fifty in the first game with a crucial unbeaten 46.
A bowling attack of Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman and Hasan Mahmud is potent for home conditions. They could make a change or two now that they have secured the series win.
Squad: Rony Talukdar, Litton Das (wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto, Shakib Al Hasan (c), Shamim Hossain, Afif Hossain, Towhid Hridoy, Taskin Ahmed, Nasum Ahmed , Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud
The visitors’ batting performance went from bad to worse with none of the batters able to make a significant contribution as they were skittled out for just 117 on Sunday. The onus will be on Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan to provide their bowlers enough runs on the board.
Jofra Archer was superb in the last game but could be rested after playing back to back games. Reece Topley and Mark Wood both could into the side for this fixture.
Squad: Jos Buttler (c/wk), Philip Salt, Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Rehan Ahmed, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Reece Topley
