Hello and welcome to the Oval and the opening match of the 20 17th ICC

:00:07.:00:33.

Champions Trophy. Cricket is back on the BBC TV. This is the eighth

:00:34.:00:37.

edition of the one-day tournament contested by the eight top teams in

:00:38.:00:45.

the world. The Oval, Cardiff and Edgbaston on the venues and we'll

:00:46.:00:49.

have highlights on all matches on BBC Two.

:00:50.:01:00.

Bangladesh famously ended England's World Cup hopes two years ago. The

:01:01.:01:07.

current ICC champions, India, are in group B. Sri Lanka are white ball

:01:08.:01:19.

specialist. On the blue sky and sunshine, fireworks and beefeaters

:01:20.:01:23.

were amongst the attractions for the opening ceremony, which began at

:01:24.:01:28.

10am. An inform England team are the bookies favourites, but they are up

:01:29.:01:32.

against Bangladesh team currently sixth in the world rankings, just

:01:33.:01:40.

one England. England included five seamers, including Ben Stokes, who's

:01:41.:01:45.

been struggling with a knee injury. Adil Rashid is left out and the out

:01:46.:01:50.

of form Jason Roy is favoured ahead of Jonny Bairstow. Bangladesh were

:01:51.:01:55.

thrashed by India in their final warm up game. Today they go with

:01:56.:02:00.

eight batsmen, including dangerous opener Tamim Iqbal. There's no place

:02:01.:02:06.

for Mehedi Hasan, who troubled England last year. England won the

:02:07.:02:12.

toss and decided to bowl first on a pitch that looks full of runs.

:02:13.:02:19.

Morgan's team will looking to use seam against a team that play spin

:02:20.:02:23.

well. A sell-out crowd greeted England as they took the field.

:02:24.:02:33.

Tamim and Sarkar opened for Bangladesh. Commentary from Nasser

:02:34.:02:37.

Hussain and Shane Warne. The ball is in the hands of Chris

:02:38.:02:39.

Woakes. Very full straightaway. Are they await? Yes, with a single.

:02:40.:03:02.

It took nine balls. A worrying sign for England. He went off after two

:03:03.:03:10.

overs and Jonny Bairstow is on. A few questions over the fitness of

:03:11.:03:15.

Woakes. Tucked away on the leg side. Will that be the first boundary of

:03:16.:03:22.

the day? It is. A long time coming. It's a good pitch, they needed a

:03:23.:03:28.

good start. Their first boundary. Halfway through the fifth over for a

:03:29.:03:33.

first boundary. Curious why Jake Ball started around the wicket. It's

:03:34.:03:44.

a good boundary. Like London buses, when one comes, another one comes

:03:45.:03:50.

just seconds after. Slow start from Bangladesh and then bang, bang. Just

:03:51.:03:54.

giving Morgan something to think about. Woakes off the field,

:03:55.:04:01.

hopefully he's OK. Ball has gone boundary, boundary. Bangladesh might

:04:02.:04:04.

be starting to put their foot down now. Giving the crowd some enjoyment

:04:05.:04:11.

and entertainment. Excellent shot. Good balance. Was there glove on

:04:12.:04:21.

that? Directed there was. It goes for four. The extra pace of Wood.

:04:22.:04:32.

Dom! Dropped! He had it in his hands, almost like her shall did at

:04:33.:04:36.

square leg. All those years ago when it was hit to square leg when he

:04:37.:04:41.

caught it and then threw it up. I don't think Moeen Ali was throwing

:04:42.:04:46.

it up, he just didn't have it completely. He just palmed it away.

:04:47.:04:57.

That's more like the Tamim we've seen over the years against England.

:04:58.:05:02.

He's got a superb record against England, he's given them sent pain

:05:03.:05:08.

over the years. He's changed the way he's batted, in the past he was more

:05:09.:05:15.

impetuous. Excellent shot. Beautifully played, presenting the

:05:16.:05:18.

full face of the bat, down the ground. Down the leg side. Four.

:05:19.:05:30.

Straying down the leg side. All Tamim had to do was put back to

:05:31.:05:36.

ball. Short again and Tamim on the pole this time. Much more aggressive

:05:37.:05:42.

response to end the over. More cheers from the Bangladesh fans.

:05:43.:05:49.

Wonderful strike! What a strike that is. They've gone after Jake Ball a

:05:50.:05:54.

bit, I think they fancy him. Beautiful strike down the ground.

:05:55.:06:00.

Certainly get the supporters on their feet and why not. Terrific

:06:01.:06:05.

hit, beautifully played. Dead straight and it went all the way.

:06:06.:06:12.

Lovely shot. Ball is looking to hit the pitch hard and he has to tuck

:06:13.:06:25.

the batsman up. He was cut away square of the wicket on that

:06:26.:06:31.

occasion. A little bit too wide on this occasion. Hitting through the

:06:32.:06:38.

cover point area for another boundary.

:06:39.:06:44.

Excellent shot. It completes the over, a damaging over for England. A

:06:45.:06:53.

six down the ground, a cut for four and they drive for four to end the

:06:54.:07:00.

over and bring up the Bangladesh 50. Should be out. Taken! Mesto it is

:07:01.:07:10.

out there. -- Bairstow. Soumya Sarkar will be very disappointed.

:07:11.:07:17.

Short and wide. He wanted to play it finer, but straight to the fielder

:07:18.:07:22.

in the deep. Easy. The substitute fielder taking the catch. England

:07:23.:07:28.

picked up their first wicket. Ben Stokes breaks the partnership.

:07:29.:07:34.

Sarkar has to go back to the pavilion for 28. First wicket has

:07:35.:07:44.

gone down for Bangladesh. We've had 12 overs. Imrul Kayes at number

:07:45.:07:54.

three. No slip. Had there been, that was a straightforward chance. The

:07:55.:07:58.

fact that Imrul Kayes has only just come to the crease might make Stokes

:07:59.:08:03.

and Morgan regret that fact. Playing in England, a new batsman coming in,

:08:04.:08:08.

it doesn't matter about the surface, you have to have a slip for the

:08:09.:08:14.

newcomer. That would have been a regulation catch. Good seam

:08:15.:08:18.

position, coming around the wicket, genuine edge. It's gone to the

:08:19.:08:27.

boundary. That's where Joe Root was. That is a nightmare couple of balls

:08:28.:08:31.

for Morgan. You don't have a slip, the ball is edged through slip, you

:08:32.:08:37.

bring in slip and take out square leg and the bowler serves up a leg

:08:38.:08:43.

stump half volley and after the fence it goes. It's a good shot from

:08:44.:08:49.

Imrul Kayes. Stokes pitching it up and easily clipping it away in the

:08:50.:08:53.

direction where Joe Root was feeling. He's playing very straight.

:08:54.:09:03.

Playing well. This is where he scores his runs, Tamim Iqbal.

:09:04.:09:07.

Another lovely shot. He scores quickly. Nice and balanced, letting

:09:08.:09:15.

the ball come onto the bat, driving it down the ground. Lovely feeling

:09:16.:09:26.

as a batter. Slower delivery. Flown off the edge for another four.

:09:27.:09:36.

Consecutive fours for Bangladesh. That's well played. Really sensible

:09:37.:09:44.

cricket. Imrul Kayes is the batsman. He's gone for it! Has he taken it?

:09:45.:09:51.

Wonderful catch! Two hands. Second wicket down. All down to some

:09:52.:09:59.

terrific catching from England. Moved dutifully, the ball floated in

:10:00.:10:04.

the air and extra seconds longer and as he hits the ground, he hung on

:10:05.:10:12.

the ball. Wonderful, fielding. He mistimed it, took a bit of risk.

:10:13.:10:17.

Early called to go for the catch as well. Tried to reach out with two

:10:18.:10:24.

hands. Eventually the right-hand took the ball. Imrul Kayes is gone,

:10:25.:10:37.

the second wicket to fall. Mushfiqur Rahim, Test captain for Bangladesh,

:10:38.:10:44.

bats at number four. Plenty of experience. 173 matches. These are

:10:45.:10:48.

the men that have to come to the fore.

:10:49.:10:57.

Brilliant shot. The bat meeting the ball on that occasion, nothing more.

:10:58.:11:12.

100 comes up for Bangladesh. Just a solid punch from Mushfiqur. Great

:11:13.:11:18.

sound off the bat. Another asset of having big squares in England, the

:11:19.:11:23.

ball races away if you can time it. Mid-off had no chance. Plunkett will

:11:24.:11:30.

come round the wicket for the last two deliveries. Shot. One of his

:11:31.:11:38.

strong areas. Four. 50 comes up for Tamim Iqbal. His 37th 50 in one-day

:11:39.:11:46.

internationals. Down the track! Lovely use of the feet and he's got

:11:47.:11:51.

a maximum. Top shot from Tamim et al! Absolutely brilliant. Lovely use

:11:52.:12:00.

of the feet. Once he gets into position, he rarely disappoints.

:12:01.:12:07.

Lovely. Placement, perfect. Get the length a touch short and Tamim Iqbal

:12:08.:12:25.

was on it like a flash. Picked it up very early. Still had to put it

:12:26.:12:31.

away. Didn't try to hit it too hard. He bisected the two fielders in the

:12:32.:12:36.

deep and played it beautifully all along the carpet.

:12:37.:12:43.

That's what he has done in the recent past, Tamim Iqbal. At first

:12:44.:12:58.

it was a short delivery that he put away for a boundary, and the next

:12:59.:13:03.

delivery was full, down the ground, lovely use of the feet. The way they

:13:04.:13:11.

are batting at the moment... Beautifully played. Played it late.

:13:12.:13:17.

That's Mushfiqur Rahim, coming back for the third. Very good running.

:13:18.:13:26.

He's whacked that nicely. In front of square for four. Beautiful shot.

:13:27.:13:40.

Bowling coach Ottis Gibson sitting comfortably. 150 comes up. He's hit

:13:41.:13:56.

that in the gap. One of the difficult things England have found,

:13:57.:14:00.

when they've pitched the ball up to Bangladesh, they've driven it well.

:14:01.:14:04.

When they've pulled back the length, they've been able to pull and hope.

:14:05.:14:09.

They've made it terribly difficult to bowl consistently. They've played

:14:10.:14:17.

very nicely so far in this match. Once again, Tamim Iqbal who picks up

:14:18.:14:18.

the length very quickly. Very, very neat from Tamim, gets a

:14:19.:14:39.

bit of a volley in return from Ben Stokes, loves getting into these

:14:40.:14:42.

kind of contests, we have seen it time and again. Stokes just loves

:14:43.:14:49.

it, he's not going to shy away from the contest. This is what

:14:50.:14:54.

matchwinners do, Stokes is one of the matchwinners, and I reckon he

:14:55.:14:58.

senses a moment, a bit frustrated that Bangladesh are doing so well,

:14:59.:15:02.

and this is what guys do, this is more for Ben Stokes than anybody

:15:03.:15:04.

else, to get himself in the game. Expense of balls earlier in the day,

:15:05.:15:25.

gone for four now. Tamim on 93, Mushie and he have a good

:15:26.:15:34.

partnership at the moment. A good shot, they will get four runs for

:15:35.:15:40.

it, 100 partnership between these two, and the 50 comes up for

:15:41.:15:45.

Mushfiqur Rahim, it has been a splendid innings.

:15:46.:15:53.

I have said it for years, one of my favourite players in the whole

:15:54.:16:05.

Bangladesh set up. Good shot, wonderful shot, that, excellent, the

:16:06.:16:08.

innings just gets better and better for Mushfiqur Rahim, and now the 200

:16:09.:16:16.

comes up for Bangladesh. The good thing about Mushfiqur Rahim, he is

:16:17.:16:20.

easy on the eye with his stroke play. That is what the Bangladeshi

:16:21.:16:27.

batsmen have done really well today, every time the ball has been short

:16:28.:16:31.

outside the off stump, they are played to get one. Mushfiq the wall!

:16:32.:16:42.

It is the one big change we have seen in limited overs cricket. He

:16:43.:16:51.

gets it! A single to get 100, his second hundred against England,

:16:52.:17:02.

ninth overall, what an innings! Second Bangladeshi batsman to get a

:17:03.:17:10.

hundred in the Champions Trophy. Fantastic moment for Tamim Iqbal.

:17:11.:17:19.

And really to put it into the context of Bangladesh's improvement

:17:20.:17:24.

over the last couple of years, this is his fifth ODI hundred since the

:17:25.:17:26.

last World Cup, five out of nine hundreds have come in that

:17:27.:17:43.

period. This is how he has scored them, job not done yet, though. Had

:17:44.:17:52.

a good time so far, got 100 against Pakistan in the first one of game,

:17:53.:17:59.

and today, a sparkling innings. A bit irresponsible to begin with, one

:18:00.:18:03.

of the features was the amount of straight drives that he played,

:18:04.:18:08.

peppered with short deliveries, he just stuck it out. Last ten overs,

:18:09.:18:17.

you feel he can spread a bit and have the additional. Outside, that

:18:18.:18:22.

has gone high and long as well! Celebration almost after getting the

:18:23.:18:23.

hundreds, celebrate for the sex. Oh, good shot, wonderful pick-up

:18:24.:18:39.

shot! And this is the short boundary, so

:18:40.:18:53.

that the line of the delivery, as terrific a shot as it was, is

:18:54.:18:58.

hitting into a short boundary leg side. Up and over extra, that is

:18:59.:19:03.

towards the shorter boundary, and Ben Stokes does brilliantly. Great

:19:04.:19:11.

fielding on the boundary, Stokes. What a shot that is! One bounce

:19:12.:19:16.

away, it wasn't far from going for sex, boy, can they play these shots

:19:17.:19:22.

well nowadays! Incredible amount of skill, hand-aye coordination. Fine

:19:23.:19:32.

leg was back, that is why he had to go over the wicketkeeper. Third man

:19:33.:19:39.

up, just had to fetch it from the boundary, will he go again? Short,

:19:40.:19:48.

square, Stokes running to his left, cannot cut it off, brilliant from

:19:49.:19:52.

Bangladesh. Incredible amount of skill where you just dab it over the

:19:53.:19:56.

keeper at third man, plays with a bowler's mind, what fields do you

:19:57.:20:01.

set? Almost creates the uncertainty of what lengths to bowl, opens up

:20:02.:20:08.

the back of the length delivery, cut away for another boundary. So

:20:09.:20:11.

important that the bowler and the captain commits to a plan at this

:20:12.:20:13.

stage in the innings. That has gone straight up in the

:20:14.:20:22.

air, the change of bat might not have worked. It hasn't! Buttler

:20:23.:20:28.

takes the catch, and the wonderful innings from Tamim Iqbal comes to an

:20:29.:20:29.

end. Well taken by Buttler. Just jammed

:20:30.:20:48.

him into the ribs, wonderful innings from Tamim Iqbal, he has really

:20:49.:20:55.

given Bangladesh a solid chance. Well played, young man! Iqbal, 128,

:20:56.:21:08.

it is 206 21-3. Experienced players keep coming, Shakib Al Hasan, a very

:21:09.:21:13.

good finisher, good man to have in this situation. He won't be on

:21:14.:21:20.

strike. Could be two in a row, shouldn't be dropped at long on,

:21:21.:21:26.

easy catch! And Bangladesh have just made a mistake by letting two new

:21:27.:21:30.

batsmen come in, and England believe they are back in this game. Not a

:21:31.:21:41.

good shot from Mushfiqur, wonderful innings, real impetus in the middle,

:21:42.:21:48.

but he needed to bowl out that partnership.

:21:49.:21:55.

That is hit seriously hard, a little bit of with, but this lad is a real

:21:56.:22:11.

danger man, if you don't get it right to him, you will disappear. A

:22:12.:22:21.

bit of beloved off that and maybe a bit of lady, I think it might have

:22:22.:22:34.

hit the helmet. -- a bit of the glove and maybe a bit of late. Save

:22:35.:22:42.

your legs, that will be four! Yes, this is the over to make fours, they

:22:43.:22:49.

have travelled a little bit today, the Bangladeshi batsmen. This is the

:22:50.:22:58.

over they are targeting, great start from Sabbir. At this stage, Chris

:22:59.:23:02.

Woakes would be bowling for England, he is there go to death bowler.

:23:03.:23:11.

Its mid-on, he should because, he is, Ben Stokes does not drop those

:23:12.:23:20.

catches, England continue to take wickets at the death. Shakib will be

:23:21.:23:26.

disappointed, because two were in these -- the slot. He was looking

:23:27.:23:38.

inside out, but that managed to cram him, Stokes takes another good

:23:39.:23:41.

catch, moves so well around the field, steadies his feet, into his

:23:42.:23:53.

hands. End of Shakib, 10, Bangladesh 277-5. No man out, as Graeme Smith

:23:54.:24:02.

said, everyone is in on the off side, he changes his length, Wood,

:24:03.:24:04.

and the result is a boundary. Great move from Sabbir, Wood using

:24:05.:24:22.

the short ball tactic, he uses his feet, slices it away through the off

:24:23.:24:30.

side, short boundary. This is now Bangladesh's highest score against

:24:31.:24:35.

England in an ODI, scoops it, will find legged by? No, he won't, that

:24:36.:24:47.

is a short boundary. The ability to get down on the knee there. Again,

:24:48.:24:54.

that is not that far out, is it? It is not, it is not a bad delivery,

:24:55.:24:59.

just the skill of the batsman, the courage to get down and played a

:25:00.:25:09.

shot. -- play the shot. Oh, that could be four more. No, he has done

:25:10.:25:14.

very well, he has to jump the speaker as well! That is outstanding

:25:15.:25:21.

fielding. It is outstanding fielding, but again that shot

:25:22.:25:24.

created a dart board the bowler, went away from his plans, two good

:25:25.:25:31.

yorkers upfront, put it away, but what a bit of fielding from

:25:32.:25:36.

Bairstow. No idea he is a wicketkeeper! Scoop of side brings

:25:37.:25:45.

up the 304 Bangladesh with an over to go, 300-5, 49 gone.

:25:46.:25:56.

It is hit too long on, should be taken, the fielder doesn't have to

:25:57.:26:05.

move, Jason Roy is out there. Bad bit of work by the Bangladeshi

:26:06.:26:08.

batsman, didn't cross, stayed in his crease. So important, these little

:26:09.:26:14.

things, at this stage of the innings, to maximise the runs on

:26:15.:26:18.

pub. Plays the shot and doesn't move. -- to maximise the runs on

:26:19.:26:25.

offer. Easy catch for Roy, having a good run at the death here. You can

:26:26.:26:33.

see there he doesn't move at all, just looking to see if he was out,

:26:34.:26:36.

wasn't thinking of the next man in. That will be a wide. It should be a

:26:37.:26:57.

wide. No, given it as a bye, maybe because he turned around and ended

:26:58.:27:02.

up left-handed. But a very good end to the innings from England,

:27:03.:27:06.

Blunkett in particular finishes with figures of 4-59. England didn't lose

:27:07.:27:10.

the plot at the end, still a very stern chase, Bangladesh will be

:27:11.:27:13.

slightly disappointed they could not have got more, 305 in your first

:27:14.:27:19.

outing in the Champions Trophy is a pretty good effort. Very, very good

:27:20.:27:24.

start, Bangladesh, the openers took their time, they got in, 28 for

:27:25.:27:38.

Soumya, but the standout player was Tamim Iqbal, 128. Woakes only bowled

:27:39.:27:39.

two overs, he got injured. I've been contributing to the teeth

:27:40.:27:53.

are the last two and a half years which is good. I just wanted to make

:27:54.:27:59.

sure that if I get it -- if I got a start I wanted to make it count so

:28:00.:28:04.

I'm glad I contributed again. Ten or 15 morons would have been ideal

:28:05.:28:09.

because the conditions are nice for batting. -- more runs. Bangladesh

:28:10.:28:17.

have set England a testing target of 302 win this first game. -- of 300

:28:18.:28:26.

and. Looked like a struggle just getting up to the stumps.

:28:27.:28:37.

Up and over. Just over and it runs away. I think it was Mashrafe at

:28:38.:28:49.

cover point. He tried to hide himself because he can't move well

:28:50.:28:54.

and it just went over his head. He was just stuck in the mud a little

:28:55.:28:59.

bit. The ball floated. I thought for a moment it was a chance. Once it

:29:00.:29:07.

gets onto the square, it races away. Scoop comes and he's gone! What a

:29:08.:29:13.

catch! When you're out of Nick, things don't go your way. He's

:29:14.:29:21.

jumped up and swooped and Jason Roy has gone. The crowd erupts. Listen

:29:22.:29:29.

to the Bangladesh fans, just what they wanted. A total of 300 and an

:29:30.:29:35.

early wicket. Offcuts are. Interesting choice of shot from

:29:36.:29:40.

Jason Roy. What a catch. Floating like a butterfly. Brilliant. Jason

:29:41.:29:51.

Roy's Paul Grant continues. -- poor run. England have lost their first

:29:52.:29:58.

wicket. Joe Root comes to the wicket. His average is very good, he

:29:59.:30:07.

has 900s. That's a lovely shot. At the Oval, you don't have two

:30:08.:30:13.

overhit. A touch player like Joe Root can get a boundary without

:30:14.:30:18.

flexing his muscles. Wonderful shot from Root. Great hands, trusting his

:30:19.:30:31.

flows through the ball. That gets through, past mid-wicket, four more.

:30:32.:30:38.

Trying to tuck him up and not giving him wit, but just gets a little

:30:39.:30:44.

straight. Good hands, rolled over the ball. It races away.

:30:45.:30:53.

Just like that. Give him any width and he will pounce. Almost a drag

:30:54.:31:03.

down with width. Doesn't miss out. Just short of the boundary. It's big

:31:04.:31:18.

out there. He got there. I think it might be

:31:19.:31:30.

Tamim Iqbal. That will run away for four as well.

:31:31.:31:51.

Room given and the short boundary peppered. 50 comes up for England.

:31:52.:31:59.

Good crowd here today. Placement is such an important part of batting.

:32:00.:32:04.

Root has somehow threaded that through. Equally good was the

:32:05.:32:14.

balance. He didn't fall across two off-stump, he stayed in a fairly

:32:15.:32:18.

upright position to a delivery that was on middle stump. Didn't force

:32:19.:32:20.

it. Root tickles fine. 65 mph. A little

:32:21.:32:39.

bit above that. Soon and -- Soumya can't afford to be off target.

:32:40.:32:53.

He's gone for it. That's one of his great strengths. Packs a punch. 50

:32:54.:33:05.

comes up for Alex Hales. From 52 balls. Ninth 50 of his career. And a

:33:06.:33:15.

good strike rate. He smashed that. A couple of steps down the track and

:33:16.:33:22.

hit it towards the mid-wicket fence. Good shot. It's going to go quickly

:33:23.:33:30.

after that, no chance for the fielder. Lovely shot from Joe Root.

:33:31.:33:42.

Placement was beautiful. A flick of the wrist and it races to the

:33:43.:33:50.

boundary. Looking stronger, looking very good for England.

:33:51.:33:59.

100 comes up for England. Both of these batsmen, Joe Root and Alex

:34:00.:34:13.

Hales, have been very good. Only the loss of Jason Roy. It's going to be

:34:14.:34:23.

four. Using the pace of the ball. Nice punch off the back foot. Once

:34:24.:34:28.

again allowing the batsman to free his arms on the back foot. Very good

:34:29.:34:38.

shot. It went very quickly. Hit into the ground and goes over the top of

:34:39.:34:48.

the fielder at point. Good shot. That will be four. Really putting

:34:49.:34:53.

the pressure on the bowlers. They haven't really gone over the top,

:34:54.:34:57.

they haven't tried anything dramatic, it's just been good

:34:58.:35:02.

cricket, knocking the ball around, rotating the strike, good plans,

:35:03.:35:06.

good execution. Hales is a dangerous player at the top of the order.

:35:07.:35:14.

Looking at what Bangladesh could do. Very hard on this good surface,

:35:15.:35:21.

quick outfield. Hang on! That's gone a long way. Yeah, big shot from

:35:22.:35:30.

Hales. Very relaxed England captain, Eoin Morgan. First six of England's

:35:31.:35:43.

innings. So important to this bowling line-up, the spinner. He's

:35:44.:35:51.

already gone for 12 in this over. Nice use of the feet. Easy stuff

:35:52.:35:53.

from Alex Hales. Halfway down the deck, good shot

:35:54.:36:09.

from Hales. Punishes the bad ball. 150 partnership. England cruising.

:36:10.:36:15.

Nice strike! Catch in the crowd. Alex Hales is moving on. 95. He is

:36:16.:36:28.

well balanced. He wasn't quite to the pitch of the ball, but look at

:36:29.:36:33.

the swing of the bat and his balance. Head still. That is a big

:36:34.:36:39.

boundary down that way. It's gone a long way back. Nowhere near a half

:36:40.:36:43.

volley, but he was balanced and he had long levers. A good swing of the

:36:44.:36:52.

bat. Out towards mid-wicket. Catch taken! The breakthrough comes. Good

:36:53.:37:06.

shout. They sure did. Once again the part-time leg-spinner, Sabbir, his

:37:07.:37:11.

first over, got hit the six the ball before. He got the big wicket of

:37:12.:37:17.

Hales. Bangladesh really needed that. A good catch in the outfield,

:37:18.:37:22.

curling away from the fielder. Excellent catch. Bangladesh really

:37:23.:37:26.

needed that. Can they go back to back and get a couple of wickets?

:37:27.:37:34.

Well played, Alex Hales. There's that slip you were talking about,

:37:35.:37:39.

just like that. It's gone for four. Easy boundary.

:37:40.:37:47.

Just got his fingertips to the ball, but the ball will still travel to

:37:48.:38:08.

the boundary. 117 from 105 balls with eight wickets in hand. Morgan

:38:09.:38:11.

picking up length very quickly and fast onto it.

:38:12.:38:18.

The pull shot. Not quite from the meat of the bat and that's why he's

:38:19.:38:31.

got a smile on his face. You don't see these kinds of lofted shots any

:38:32.:38:37.

more. It was a drag down. Got into position quickly. Almost looked like

:38:38.:38:43.

it sat in the surface a bit. Trying to hit it 20 different he rows back,

:38:44.:38:47.

a slight top edge but nobody out there. Just falling short? He's

:38:48.:38:57.

claimed the catch. The batsman is waiting and the umpires will take a

:38:58.:39:03.

look. He thinks it's out. Let's see what the unbiased thing. There will

:39:04.:39:10.

be a soft signal. -- let's see what the umpires think. The soft signal

:39:11.:39:14.

is not out. OK. Thank you. I can see ball on

:39:15.:39:35.

ground. Ball is on ground. The decision is not out.

:39:36.:39:44.

He's not happy! Making his point felt. Almost yellow card time!

:39:45.:40:02.

That's a good shot. That will race away. Quick outfield, excellent shot

:40:03.:40:11.

from Joe Root. Didn't try and overhit it. Class act, class player.

:40:12.:40:18.

Timing. Look at the balance when he plays this. Sometimes you see huge

:40:19.:40:23.

swings of the bat, look at the timing. He didn't over stride with

:40:24.:40:29.

his front foot, he just put it down, comfortable, his head was still

:40:30.:40:34.

anti-free to his arms. They will need a few more on the boundary and

:40:35.:40:39.

a few in the stands. That is huge! The moment it left the back, that

:40:40.:40:46.

was going to be six. Good use of the feet. Look at the balance. He really

:40:47.:40:51.

goes out and gets it and stays down. Doesn't come up. Doesn't lose any

:40:52.:40:57.

power. That's gone a long way back, that's a big boundary. Good strike.

:40:58.:41:05.

Morgan informed. -- is informed. The man has gone on the reverse sweep so

:41:06.:41:11.

he leaves it open. Clever batting. That will take Morgan to yet another

:41:12.:41:29.

half-century. England need their captain in form and he's certainly

:41:30.:41:34.

that. Well played, Eoin Morgan. A lot of talk before this tournament

:41:35.:41:39.

that he needs a good start. He hasn't performed so well in these

:41:40.:41:44.

big ICC tournaments. What a 50 it is. 52 in 45. Will he run back? He

:41:45.:41:58.

will. He hobbles his way through to another one day hundred. He is a

:41:59.:42:03.

high-class player. All the Oval, all his team-mates stand and applause --

:42:04.:42:08.

applaud a truly magnificent cricketer. Excellent knock from Joe

:42:09.:42:15.

Root. In early when Jason Roy was dismissed. When you talk about the

:42:16.:42:20.

best players in the world, he's in the top echelon, right amongst the

:42:21.:42:27.

best. Root on the attack now. Not often that you see Joe Root clear

:42:28.:42:31.

the ropes, but he's done so on this occasion. He's been working on his

:42:32.:42:34.

power hitting, actually. Root looking to put that into

:42:35.:42:47.

practice, all that power hitting that he has been practising in the

:42:48.:42:51.

nets before games this season, a perfect opportunity to put it into

:42:52.:42:57.

practice in a match. That is the shortest boundary on the ground.

:42:58.:43:05.

Morgan definitely picking his spot, eyeing up that area wide of mid-on.

:43:06.:43:17.

Very good touch, Eoin Morgan, the star of the international this

:43:18.:43:19.

summer against Ireland and South Africa. Probably playing as fluently

:43:20.:43:25.

as he has for some time, great to have a captain coming into a global

:43:26.:43:31.

tournament, a confident side, but also confident in his own game and

:43:32.:43:33.

is own abilities as well. Lovely from Root, lovely shot to end

:43:34.:43:51.

the over, little fall, a little wide, the measure, the timing as it

:43:52.:43:56.

beat the man, only ten yards to go, 290-2. Root picking out extra cover,

:43:57.:44:04.

four more. Coming quickly now. That is the ninth boundary four for

:44:05.:44:27.

Joe Root to add to the one six that he hit over mid on.

:44:28.:44:37.

Root looking to finish it in style, one bounce four, Joe Root's highest

:44:38.:44:47.

score in one-day international cricket, the first time that a team

:44:48.:44:51.

will have chased down a score of over 300 in the Champions Trophy.

:44:52.:44:58.

A good way to finish an emphatic opening win for England, Joe Root

:44:59.:45:07.

and captain Eoin Morgan combining in a partnership of 143 after the early

:45:08.:45:13.

dismissal of Jason Roy, a run chase that never looked in any doubt,

:45:14.:45:18.

really, Alex Hales played very confidently, Joe Root looks in

:45:19.:45:22.

excellent touch, he finishes on 133 not out, his highest score in ODI

:45:23.:45:27.

cricket. Eoin Morgan continues his good form, unbeaten on 75. And as

:45:28.:45:33.

well as Bangladesh played in the first half of this game, thanks to

:45:34.:45:37.

Tamim Iqbal, 305 never looked enough. So a disappointing start for

:45:38.:45:43.

Bangladesh, but I think they can look back with some pride at the

:45:44.:45:48.

first of the game, when Tamim Iqbal played so well for a century, just

:45:49.:45:52.

not enough firepower, really, with the ball. If you don't take wickets,

:45:53.:45:58.

it is very, very difficult. They got the early wicket of Jason Roy, good

:45:59.:46:09.

catch by Mustafizur. England victorious.

:46:10.:46:16.

A lot of wicketless analysis there. They need to pick up wickets, but

:46:17.:46:28.

only Sabbir and Sabbir successful in the

:46:29.:46:38.

column that counts. Just knowing what we had to do, it

:46:39.:47:05.

was about making sure that we have plenty of wickets towards the back

:47:06.:47:09.

end, you know, someone like Alex Hales will not score slowly if he

:47:10.:47:14.

bats for long periods of time, one of the top four five, not out,

:47:15.:47:19.

between 70 and 100 at the back end, we would be in a good position. I am

:47:20.:47:24.

sure there will be different situations and scenarios throughout

:47:25.:47:27.

the competition, but just thrilled to bits to get off to a good start.

:47:28.:47:33.

You don't seem a man who doubt his decision-making much, but was there

:47:34.:47:37.

any stage when you thought, I wish I had Adil Rashid? Absolutely not, we

:47:38.:47:41.

went with the right decision, considering one side was shorter, it

:47:42.:47:45.

didn't turn a great deal, we went for Moeen, who has bowled really

:47:46.:47:50.

well and been in good form, it was unfortunate that Chris Woakes was

:47:51.:47:56.

out. In general, the fitness, Joe hobbling off, Ben with his knee,

:47:57.:48:01.

Chris with what could be a serious injury, are you concerned? Chris is

:48:02.:48:04.

going for a scan on his thigh tonight, we will have to see what

:48:05.:48:08.

that comes up with, it doesn't feel right, he went straight off the

:48:09.:48:11.

field. The rest of the guys are not a major worry, Joe was able to bat

:48:12.:48:16.

through his nickel or whatever it is, but we will assess in the

:48:17.:48:20.

morning. New Zealand next up, will you be watching them against

:48:21.:48:24.

Australia tomorrow? Absolutely, it will be a great game, two very good

:48:25.:48:29.

sides, we will certainly be watching.

:48:30.:49:16.

So a great start for England, they play next on Tuesday in Cardiff...

:49:17.:50:07.

# I want it all Yeah, yeah

:50:08.:50:11.
