Bangladesh will lock horns against England for their second and final warm up game ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup tomorrow (Monday) at Guwahati.

However, there is a fear that the warm-up match between Bangladesh and England could washed out by rain.

Captain Shakib Al Hasan is unlikely to be the part of this game because of his slight niggles as he has missed the first warm up against Sri Lanka which Bangladesh won by seven wickets.

During the warm-up match against Sri Lanka, Tanjid Hasan Tamim and Litton Das, both scored fifty on a hot condition, suffered from muscle cramp due to excessive sweating. The two of them, along with some of the regular cricketers, may be rested against the English to keep them injury-free.

Bangladesh are seeking to a winning-end to the warm-up fixtures to boost their World Cup hope against a team, who are current World Champions in the ODI and T20 format.

England's first warm up game against India was washed out due to heavy rain so they would take this game seriously for some practice ahead of the World Cup.

After this practice game, Bangladesh would move to the Dharamshala, Himachal state of India to play their opening game against Afghanistan on October 7.
