Eoin Morgan’s side bowled defending champions West Indies out for just 55 in a blistering display in Dubai on Saturday, wrapping up victory within 8.2 overs of their chase.
With tournament favourites India having lost their opener against Pakistan the following day, Morgan’s men could hardly have asked for a better opening weekend but will know they cannot afford to rest on their laurels against a Bangladesh side who have come through qualifying.

England vs Bangladesh team news
England are likely to be unchanged, although David Willey is an option if they would like an extra bowler, or left-armer in their attack. Mark Wood is unlikely to be available, having missed the opener after having an injection in his left ankle.

England vs Bangladesh prediction
While England can’t expect Bangladesh to roll over as West Indies did, that victory will have given them huge confidence and they can expect to make it two from two.
England to win.
