Rehan Ahmed becomes the youngest cricketer to play for England across formats

Bangladesh outplayed England in the first T20I and won the game by 6 wickets. They showed why they are such a strong side in their own conditions. Earlier in the tour, England ended their seven year unbeaten streak in ODIs at home with a series victory but Bangladesh fought back to earn a consolation win in the immaterial third ODI.

The hosts have won the toss and have opted to field in the 2nd T20I. The pitch and dimensions at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka are similar to the one in Chattogram. The average score here is 144 but in the last couple of games it has come down to 126. Expect spinners to play a big role.
