Shakib Al Hasan’s best bowling figures (five for 20) came at the very venue.
Jos Buttler is the only player from both teams to feature in the Best11 in the last five competitive T20s, scoring three fifties and pouching as many catches.
Adil Rashid has gone wicketless only once in 2023, overall scalping 15 wickets in 11 outings.
In his last 10 games, Ben Duckett has hammered 342 at a splendid average of 49.
Mustafizur Rahman is the top wicker-taker at the venue: 38 wickets with an economy of just over 6 RPO.
Sam Curran and Chris Woakes made it to the Best11 in three of the last five games, generating points with both bat and ball.
