England Tour of Bangladesh 2023 – March 2023 has been set aside for the first bilateral trip of Bangladesh by England in six years. Over the course of two weeks, the two teams will play three ODIs and three T20 Internationals at Chattogram and Dhaka. England will be visiting Bangladesh after a long gap of 6 years.
English Cricket team has dominated the world cricket since their last visit to Bangladesh. Their aggressive approach has worked in their favor across all formats. However, it would be very interesting to see if they can find a way past the slow and sluggish tracks in Bangladesh.
The three-match ODIs is a part of the Super League, a competition to see which nations advance directly to the 2023 World Cup. England and Bangladesh have already qualified for the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup.
So, there won’t be any crucial super league points on the line.

Batting Friendly Conditions in Chattogram | Bangladesh vs England 2023 | England’s tour of Bangladesh 2023:
Some speculations suggested that the Bangladesh Cricket Board could be hesitant to welcome England’s powerful batting lineup to Chattogram, especially in light of the fact that India scored 400+ runs there only a few days ago.
The wicket in Chattogram offers a lot of help to the batters, as was the case when Ishan Kishan smashed a double hundred in only 35 overs. Therefore, it would be interesting to see how the Bangladesh Cricket Board and Team management go about the pitch in Chattogram.
England Cricket Team’s Arrival in Bangladesh:
Around February 20, England is anticipated to land in Bangladesh. Prior to the start of the ODI series, they are slated to play two exhibition games.
Past Record | Bangladesh vs England 2023 | England’s tour of Bangladesh 2023:
All four bilateral ODI series in the pasrt between the two teams have been won by England, despite a tight matchup in 2016. Following those games, Bangladesh had one of their greatest performances to tie the Test series after falling behind 1-0.
It was a historic win for Bangladesh Cricket Team as they restricted England in the final innings of the second test match to level the series 1-1 in 2016. While the past record tilts the balance in the favour of England, Bangladesh will pose serious threat to England as they have some quality spinners.
They recently challenged Indian batters in the test matches as they nearly won the second test against India. Let’s see how they fare in the England Series.
