The ICC 2021 T20 World Cup Super 12s stage has got off to a great start, and all six teams from Group A are still in with a chance of progressing to the semi-finals. With this in mind, this game between England and Bangladesh is a very important one, with two points being like gold to the victors.

What is out T20 World cup prediction for who will win this match? Read on and find out.

England v Bangladesh Team Preview

England got off to a great start thanks to a thrashing of the West Indies, and they will be looking to make it two wins from two and give themselves a great shot of making it through to the next stage. England are one of the favourites to lift the trophy, and they definitely showed why against the West Indies. Thanks to that demolition job, they now have a NRR of +3.970, which could be worth a point come the end of the Super 12 stage.

Although England won the last match pretty easily, they will still have a few things to ponder. For example, they only had to chase down a total of 56, and they lost four wickets while doing so. In the warm-up game against India, their batsmen struggled a bit to time their shots on the slow surface, and they will have to take this into consideration against Bangladesh because they have some world-class spin bowlers.

Batting is definitely England's strength, and they have the batsmen to chase down any total or set an opposing side a huge total. The opening pair of Jos Buttler and Jason Roy is as good as any other partnership in the competition, and then they have the likes of Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Liam Livingstone, and Eoin Morgan to follow. Moegan's form is definitely under scrutiny, but his batting might not even be needed given the batting lineup that they have.

In the bowling department, their attack does look a little bit one dimensional, and we will probably see Mark Wood come in for Chris Jordan. Overall, England have a really good team that has confidence under their belt, so they will definitely be a hard team to beat.

Bangladesh Team Preview

Bangladesh have had a bit of an average tournament to date with two wins and two defeats from the four games that they have played. They were the favourites in their first Super 12s game against Sri Lanka, but they did not perform as well as they wouldhave liked with both the bat and the ball.

As things stand, Bangladesh are fifth in the table and another defeat will make it really hard for them to qualify. Although they ended up losing the last match, it was not all doom and gloom for them. On paper, they have a pretty decent team and a spin bowling attack that can cause the English batsmen plenty of issues. If they can bowl how we all know they can, England will have a game on their hands.

Toss Prediction

Winning the toss and bowling second has been the order of the day in this competition so far, but that will change as the event progresses. The surfaces are starting to slow, and the day matches will not give much of an advantage to the team that bats second. Due to the fact that there is a lot of pressure in this match, we expect the captain that wins the toss to opt to bat first.

Pitch Conditions

The Abu Dhabi stadium is one of the lowest scoring stadiums in the UAE and this is because of the slow wicket and the long boundaries. This match is a day match, meaning that the players can forget about dew being an issue. Additionally, we might see the surface get slower as the game progresses, making batting second more difficult. Taking into account the previous scores that have been scored here, we think anything about 155 should be a great score.

Our Match Prediction

England are sitting at the top of the table and another win here will put them in a great position to qualify for the next stage of the tournament. In Bangladesh's case, this is a must-win match. When you look at the two teams on paper and their recent performances, you will understand why we are going for England to win this game.
