The clash between England and Bangladesh will be very crucial for both sides as the winner will be in a firm position to qualify for the next round of the tournament. The Asian side have five points from four games and are fourth in the table.

The Three Lions are fifth with just two points after four matches. Should Bangladesh avoid a defeat at the hands of England on Monday, they will knock Eoin Morgan's side out of this World Cup.

England's misery continued after they suffered their latest defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka in the last fixture. They managed 309 runs from their 50 overs and the Lankans chased down the total comfortably, winning the tie by nine wickets, thanks to unbeaten centuries from Lahiru Thirimanne and Kumar Sangakkara.

On the other hand, Bangladesh kept their hope of qualifying for the knockout round of the World Cup with a historic win over Scotland in their last Group A fixture. The Scot posted a total of 318 runs from their 50 overs.

A collective batting effort helped Bangladesh register their first 300 plus run chase in the ODIs. They won by six wickets with 11 balls to spare. The latest win has given Mashrafe Mortaza's side the belief they can qualify for the latter stages of the tournament.

What They Say

Jos Buttler: "The mood in the camp isn't the greatest. We haven't played as well as we should have done. The competition for places is good for us. Guys who aren't in the side are desperate to put their hand up to say they should be playing."
