Having overcome a tough challenge from Bangladesh in the three-match ODI series, England now head into the two-Test series, with the first match to be played at Chittagong

Despite Bangladesh’s impeccable record at home in recent times, England would have been confident of the doing well in the visiting nation

With the series squared 1-1, hosts Bangladesh and England have everything to play for

After having lost a great opportunity to go 1-0 in the series, hosts Bangladesh will seek to improve their efforts as they take on England in the second one-dayer at Mirpur on Sunday

After much speculation over England’s tour of Bangladesh over security concerns, the series will finally begin, with the first ODI at Mirpur on Friday
