After dethroning the Bangladesh cricket team in their home by winning the ODI series 1-2, the T20 World Champions England cricket team have got off to the worst possible start in the T20 series against the Bangla Tigers.
England cricket team, who are currently on tour of Bangladesh, won the 3 match ODI series by 1-2 scoreline after winning the first 2 matches consecutively.
However, the start to the 3 match T20I series is not the one they might have hoped for. The T20 World champions are to play a 3 match T20I series vs the Bangladesh team and they already lost the opening match pretty easily though.
Batting first, Jos Buttler’s 67 runs in 42 balls helped England to post 156 runs only on the board. Chasing the target, Najmul Hossain Shanto (51 runs 30 balls), Towhid Hridoy (24 runs in 17 balls) and captain Shakib Al Hasan scored 34 runs in 24 balls to help Bangladesh win the match by 6 wickets and still 2 overs remaining.
After this win for the Bangladesh team, a Twitter user pointed out that on this same day, the Bangladesh team had beaten the England team in 2015 Cricket World Cup and the did the same again. Checkout how Twitterati reacted to the same.

England is complete opposite of India bad in bilaterals but good in ICC tournaments where as India is good in bilaterals and group stages of ICC Tournaments but chokes in Finals. Australia is like the combination of both— Vedant Sanjeev Manjrekar (@sanjeev_vedant) March 9, 2023

Bangladesh had eliminated England from World Cup 2015 today, and now defeated them in their first-ever bilateral T20I. Declare this as Nagin Day.— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) March 9, 2023
