Match Ended   
126/2 (14.1/20)
124/9 (20.0/20)
England beat Bangladesh by 8 wickets
Right then. England have made it two wins in two games. They haven’t been troubled in this competition and look to be on the right track to make it to the semi-finals. But, the action does not end here. We have one more game coming up. This time, it is Scotland and Namibia who go head-to-head at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Do join us then. Cheers!
Eoin Morgan, the skipper of England, says that their bowlers have been doing a great job and the fielding has also been great. Adds that their white-ball cricket has come along nicely and they have been brilliant since 2019. Credits Jason Roy by saying that he did a fantastic job for them with the bat and started strong up front.
Mahmudullah, the skipper of Bangladesh, says that he is disappointed with the performance. Tells that they are lacking to capitalize in the Powerplay and at the end as well. Mentions that they want to be a skilled hitter rather than a power hitter team. Tells that they have to reassess and come back stronger in the next game.
Jason Roy wins the Man of the Match award for his half-century which helped his side to get over the line with ease. Roy is in for a chat. He says that the credit goes to the bowlers as they are doing well for us. Adds that start of his career was more of a sporadic but now he gets more consecutive games. Adds that a good start is a key but these pitches are hard to bat on but the key was to keep the wickets in hand.
... PRESENTATION TIME ...
Earlier in the first innings. Mahmudullah’s decision to bat first, did not go as per the plan. England bowlers ran riot and kept down Bangladesh to a below-par score of 124/9. Later, their batters came out and motored along pretty well to take away the game from the Bangla Tigers.
Bangladesh bowlers were not on the money. Unlike the England bowlers, Bangladesh pacers found it very hard to keep things tight with the ball. They kept struggling with their lines and lengths. No bowler stood out, as such. Nasum Ahmed and Shoriful Islam were the only ones to find success with the ball. They will be disappointed with their performance. Bangladesh now see themselves in the must-win category, after two consecutive defeats in this campaign.
There is joy in the English dressing room, thanks to Roy! The opening pair, got off to a great start. The runs kept flowing in this innings. Although, Buttler slipped out inside the Powerplay. Malan came in and batted sensibly alongside Roy. They stitched a crucial partnership to take their side close to the finish line. But Roy gave away his wicket at 61. In the end, Bairstow and Malan did the finishing touches to get their side over the line.
England have won their second game of the tournament and are placed comfortably at the top of the table in their group. They are yet to be challenged in this competition. Both the times, their bowlers set the platform and the batters then came in to complete the task. Bangladesh, on the other hand, could not put up a good fight and the Lions have silenced the Tiger's for the first time in T20 World Cup.
