England won the game against Bangladesh comprehensively by 106 runs. After the defeat against Pakistan, England came back with full force against Bangladesh on Saturday.

The hosts were asked to bat first and English openers obliged happily. Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy have put together a century stand for the opening wicket. Once Bairstow was dismissed, Jason Roy went full on attack. He scored 153 runs on the day and brought up his maiden World Cup century.

Jos Buttler soon took charge of the innings, once Jason Roy was caught in the 35th over. The wicket keeper batsman scored a quick fire 64 run knock in just 44 balls. However, he suffered a hip injury during the process. Few big hits from Liam Plunkett and Chris Woakes at the end helped England post a mammoth 386/6 in their 50 overs.

Bangladesh never got going

Asked to chase 388, Bangladesh did not have the best of starts. Jofra Archer was on fire with the new ball and eventually knocked out Soumya Sarkar. Although, Tamim Iqbal once again got a slow start, he could not stay for much longer. Shakib Al Hasan was the lone warrior in Bangladesh’s innings.

The south paw scored a well made hundred on the day after scoring two consecutive fifties in the previous two games. He got good support from Mushfiqur Rahim for the third wicket but once Rahim was departed, other batsmen could not hold ground for long. Even though Bangladesh made 280, the failure of middle order leaves lots of concern for the team.

Meanwhile, Shakib went on with his business and became the second Bangladeshi player to score a World Cup hundred.

On the other hand, Bangladesh never threatened to chase the total down. And it was only a matter of how many runs that England are going to win from the start.  Among the bowlers, Jofra Archer impressed with the ball once again for England with his fiery pace.
