England vs Bangladesh - Highlights & Stats

England vs Bangladesh - Highlights & Stats

Shakib and Mushfiqur Rahim (44) put on 106 for the third wicket before England struck twice in four balls, Plunkett - preferred to Ali due to the inviting straight boundaries at Sophia Gardens - forcing Mushfiqur to balloon to Roy at point and Adil Rashid inflicting a second-ball duck on Mohammad Mithun, who slashed behind to Bairstow.

Sent into bat, England posted a massive 386 for six and then returned to dismiss Bangladesh for 280 in 48.5 overs, despite a superb hundred by all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan (121). He also slapped a six over long-on before holing out to Soumya Sarkar on the boundary rope the very next delivery.

Roy - who dropped a crucial catch and made just eight in England's 14-run defeat to Pakistan at Trent Bridge on Monday - now holds the second-best score by an England batsman at a World Cup, behind only Andrew Strauss' 158 against India in Bengaluru eight years ago.

Roy and his opening partner Bairstow (51) ended up stitching a 128-run opening stand.

The Test gloveman was behind the stumps after Jos Buttler suffered a hip injury during a typically dashing 64.

China grants 5G commercial licences despite U.S. tech battle
Commenting on the ministry's announcement , Huawei said it will "fully support" the Chinese operators to build 5G. However, the latest issuance is the first time the authority gave green light to commercial layout.


On the other hand, Bangladesh failed to replicate their performance against South Africa in their tournament opener and lost a nervy battle to New Zealand in their last fixture. The hosts were looking to put a hard loss against Pakistan behind them and were given the ideal boost to do so by the opening pair - Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow. In the 35th over, Roy plundered three successive sixes off Mehidy Hasan to complete his 150 in 120 balls but he was holed out by Mortaza at extra cover in the next ball.

The Surrey batsman collided with umpire Joel Wilson as he raced on the pitch and knocked him to the ground but neither he nor the Trinidad official were unhurt.

Earlier, Bangladesh skipper Mortaza won the toss and opted to bowl against the hosts.

The in-form Roy, however, pressed on, reaching the landmark in 92 balls, including 12 fours and a six. Although host England is a strong team but it should not make the mistake of considering Bangladesh as weak.

"It is going to be a hard game".
