BAN vs ENG 2023: Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

The third and the final ODI between England and Bangladesh will be held at Chattogram. On that note, here, we look at the pitch report of Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium and the weather conditions in Chattogram for BAN vs ENG 2023.

Before the series started, it was expected that Bangladesh would give a tough fight. In the first ODI, Bangladesh had a good chance to win the game at one point. However, in the second encounter, they were blown away, especially by the English batters. Having lost both games, Bangladesh will look for a consolation victory in the third game.

Despite having sealed the series, England may not look to make many changes. Chattogram will offer a different challenge and considering the World Cup later this year will happen in India, England would consider the upcoming assignment as a preparatory event. Moreover, since England’s ODI form has been inconsistent in recent months, they would rather give the players an extended rope to help them come to form.

In the 24 matches held so far at this venue, 15 games have been won by the side batting second. Hence, the captain winning the toss could look to field first.

Ishan Kishan scored a brilliant double-century in an ODI in the last game played here. Although there would be the traditional touch of Bangladesh surfaces, we can expect a top batting pitch at this stadium.
