MATCH SUMMARY:

Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler slaughter Bangladeshi bowlers as England register a record 386 in their exuberant win over Bangladesh at World Cup 2019.

Choosing to bowl first, a decision Bangladesh would rue as England batsmen created a havoc against them.

Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow had a fantastic partnership of 128 in 19 overs as Jonny Bairstow registered his first fifty of World Cup 2019.

Jason Roy, however, carried on as he registered his first century of World Cup 2019 in just 92 balls, and then went on to score a fantastic 153(121) with 14 fours and 5 sixes.

Jos Buttler scored an attacking 64(44), while there were some useful contributions from Morgan (35), Woakes (18) and Plunkett (27) that helped England reach a mammoth score of 386-6 in 50 overs.

THE CHASE: 

Chasing a mammoth 387, Bangladesh needed partnerships, but their openers failed to deliver in this important chase.

After losing Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar early, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim built a good partnership of 106 to give Bangladesh some hope.

Shakib scored a brilliant 122(119), however, there was no support from the other end as Bangladesh failed to build good partnerships. 

In the end, Bangladesh fell short of the target by 106 runs as Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer took 3 wickets each.

WHAT WENT WRONG FOR BAN?

  1. Winning the toss, and choosing to field first on a batting-friendly pitch.
  2. Lack of big partnerships in the middle.
  3. No one really put the acceleration on the pedal in this mammoth chase.

KEY MOMENTS:

  1. Jason Roy smashing World Cup 2019’s first 150
  2. Jason Roy’s 3 Sixes in 3 balls against Mehidy Hasan. 
  3. Jofra Archer’s fabulous ball to dismiss Soumya Sarkar in the fourth over.
  4. Shakib Al Hasan getting dismissed on 122 in the 40th over.
