Bangladesh have won the toss and decided to bowl first against England in the 20th match of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Super 12, Group-1, at Abu Dhabi.

The match starts at 4pm. GTV and T Sports are airing live.

Bangladesh made one change in their playing XI. Shoriful comes in for injured Saifuddin.

In this era of T20 cricket, the stars of England and Bangladesh have played with and against each other in leagues around the world. But the national sides have never featured against one another in a men's T20I.

England, the No.1 ranked T20I side, thus come into their match against the Tigers in Abu Dhabi with some wariness, careful not to underestimate the challenge.

The teams have had contrasting runs so far in the tournament. England rolled West Indies over for 55 in their opening match and are looking for their second win of the Super 12 stage.

Bangladesh, meanwhile, were rocked in round one by Scotland before they made it to the Super 12, where they lost their first match to Sri Lanka despite posting a strong total. Another loss will make their hopes of progressing to the next round tricky. 

England (Playing XI): Jason Roy, Jos Buttler(w), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan(c), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Tymal Mills

Bangladesh (Playing XI): Mohammad Naim, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah(c), Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (w), Mahedi Hasan, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed
