England vs Bangladesh Highlights, World Cup 2019: England Demolish Bangladesh To Return To Winning Ways
2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, ENG vs BAN, Highlights: England returned to winning ways by beating Bangladesh by 106 runs.
England bounced back from their shock defeat to Pakistan in style, outclassing Bangladesh by 106 runs for their second win in three World Cup 2019 games. Bangladesh were in the game for large periods, largely thanks to a sparkling century from Shakib Al Hasan (121). But the asking rate kept climbing and put immense pressure on the Bangladeshis who ended losing wickets in a bunch to be finally bowled out for 280 in 48.5 overs. Earlier, Jason Roy scored 153 runs off 121 balls, including 14 boundaries and six sixes, as England posted a record World Cup total -- 386 for six against Bangladesh at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. This is England's seventh consecutive 300-plus knock in One-day International cricket and third successive in the ongoing World Cup 2019. Roy established a century stand with opening partner Jonny Bairstow, who lost his wicket to Mashrafe Mortaza in the 20th over after scoring a half-century. Joe Root, centurion from the last match against Pakistan, failed to put up an impressive show on Saturday and managed 21 runs off 29 balls. Wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler impressed the Cardiff crowd with a 64-run knock, decorated with two boundaries and four sixes. Captain Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes contributed with 35 and six runs respectively, before Chris Woakes and Liam Plunkett launched an attack on Bangladeshi bowlers in death overs. In the end, Plunkett was unbeaten on 27 runs off nine balls with Woakes unbeaten on 18 off eight deliveries. (SCORECARD)
