Playing XI Prediction: England to Bring Back Plunkett for Rashid; Bangladesh Unchanged

Hosts England entered the ICC World Cup as overwhelming favourites but they were given rude awakening by Pakistan in their last game. Eoin Morgan might look to bolster his pace attack on a ‘green’ Cardiff track for their third game against Bangladesh on Saturday.

Liam Plunkett is set to return to the side after being replaced by Mark Wood for the last game. Leg-spinner Adil Rashid may miss out from playing XI.

England Predicted XI: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (capt), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood

Bangladesh look fairly settled after impressive win over South Africa and a battling loss to New Zealand. Mosaddek Hossain’s returns of 26 and 11 haven’t been very impressive in the last two games but Sabbir Rahman looks unlikely to get a game just yet.

Bangladesh Predicted XI: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahman (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza and Mustafizur Rahman
