England continued their resurgence in 50-over cricket, beating Bangladesh in the first ODI by 21 runs on 7 October. Batting first, the visitors put on 309 runs, thanks to a scintillating knock of 101 from Ben Stokes, who scored his maiden ODI ton and a crucial 60 runs from Ben Duckett who was making his debut.

The duo put on 153 runs for the third wicket, which was followed by an explosive 38-ball 63-run cameo from skipper Jos Buttler. With the ball, it was the turn of another debutant to shine —Jake Ball picked up five wickets for 51 runs to take his team to victory.

This was the first instance of an Englishman taking five wickets on debut, with Ball also becoming the 14<sup>th England player to win the player of the match award on debut. The visitors who suffered some nervy moments, eventually came through to win and in all probability will play the same XI that took the field on Friday.

The hosts Bangladesh in all fairness should have won the first match, and that they lost was due to them giving the game away. Chasing 310 to win, the hosts looked in control, and at one point needed only 39 runs off 52 balls with six wickets in hand.

With victory in sight, Bangladesh suffered a throwback to their fragile old days losing their last six wickets for just 17 runs to give England a morale boosting victory. However, it was not all doom and gloom for the hosts with Imrul Kayes and Shakib Al Hasan's performances indicating that the hosts are a tough nut to crack at home.

At present they have no injury worries but might want to bring back Nasir Hossain in the side in place of Mosaddek Hossain.
