Adil Rashid spectacularly catches Shakib Al Hasan as Tigers lose key wicket

TAMING THE TIGERS

England face a crucial test against Bangladesh in their second T20 World Cup match.

And Eoin Morgan’s men will hope they continue in a similar fashion to their hammering of West Indies on the opening weekend.

There, they ran out six-wicket winners over the Windies after bowling them out for just 55.

Bangladesh have it all to do if they want to qualify for the semi-final after going down to Sri Lanka by five wickets.

And in the first round they were stunned by Scotland, leading the Bangladesh Cricket Board president to criticise the “approach and attitude” of some players.

But Jos Buttler isn’t taking anything for granted.

He said of the Tigers: “We know the challenges they’ll pose – we’ve played against them lots in 50-over cricket and they’re a dangerous side.

“They’ve got lots of experience in T20 cricket, some very good players, playing quite a specific style which is unique to them I feel.

“They are a spin‑heavy side and generally their batsmen tend to be very strong square of the wicket.

“They also have a couple of left-arm spinners, so we’ve been practising against that lots in the nets and trying to get some plans in place.”
