The 8th match of the ICC World Cup 2023 will see England locking against Bangladesh on Tuesday, October 10 at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamshala.
England, the reigning champions, had a challenging start to their campaign as they were convincingly defeated by New Zealand in their opening match. Meanwhile, Bangladesh secured a clinical victory over Afghanistan in a one-sided affair.
England vs Bangladesh Match Prediction
The reigning champs, England, had a bit of a rough start in their first match against New Zealand. Their bowling and batting didn’t shine. Even though they boast a decent bowling unit, they will need to fine-tune it to stay competitive, as relying solely on their batting won’t guarantee victories.
Bangladesh enjoyed a stellar start to their tournament campaign with a commanding victory over Afghanistan in a one-sided contest at Dharamsala. Their bowling was top-notch, as they skittled Afghanistan out for a mere 156 runs. With the next match set to take place at the same venue, their bowlers will be eager to maintain their excellent form.

ICC World Cup 2023: ENG vs BAN Match Prediction
Even though Bangladesh looked fantastic in their first outing against Afghanistan, if we check the history books, it’s clear that England has always had the upper hand. Every single time these two teams clashed in ODIs, England came out on top the majority of times. They have met 24 times, and England won 19 of those, while Bangladesh managed just 5 victories. Going by that, England looks like the favourites for this match.
