    Eoin Morgan (3/3): With Archer, Wood, Woakes, Stokes in the bowling, it’s outstanding. They’re wonderful to captain and today was no different. It’s an area to work on, it was an improved performance in the field today. No serious concern with Jos (Buttler) at the moment. He didn’t keep as a precautionary measure and will be monitored in the next 48 hours.

    Eoin Morgan (2/3): With Jos Buttler coming in and Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett – all of them contributed. I think majority of the teams will open with spin against us as it worked in the first game. There’s something always that sides will throw at us. Whether it’s spin, swing, whatever – we are prepared.

    Eoin Morgan (1/3): I think more positives to take out from the game today. We took a lot of positives from the last game against Pakistan too. We knew we needed to improve in order to win against Bangladesh and we were outstanding with the bat. The two boys at the top (openers) laid a solid platform as Jason (Roy) managed to get a significant score. It’s great to see. He’s very intimidating to play against and the impact he has against oppositions is significant.

    Mashrafe Mortaza (2/2): 330 could have been a different chase but as I said this score was too much. Shakib is batting so well for us at number 3. His bowling also has been fantastic. Still six matches to go and hopefully others step up in those games. Very important matches coming up.

    Mashrafe Mortaza (1/2): 386 is too many, credit goes to their batsmen. It’s very difficult to get him (Roy) once he gets set. We knew we had to get Roy out, only then we could have come back in the match. The pitch was under cover for one and a half days, so it was a straight decision to bowl first. We need luck sometimes to get those wickets.

    Jason Roy (2/2): With that batting line-up, no matter what we get off the first 10 overs, batting the whole 50, we’re gonna get a big score. We’ve been doing pretty well together over the past couple of years. We have nothing much to worry about. We just go out there and get the job done. I didn’t have a chance to chat with him (Morgan). He’s obviously going to be very happy. We righted our wrongs. I’m extremely happy.

    Jason Roy (1/2): It was great to get out there and put in a big performance. Just the way Jonny and myself batted, we built the innings well, weren’t quite sure how the pitch will behave.

Match highlights, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Match 12: Roy stars as England beat Bangladesh by 106 runs in Cardiff

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Match 12 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between England and Bangladesh at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on Saturday.

England, after winning their first game against South Africa, lost to Pakistan, while Bangladesh, after beating South Africa in their opener lost out to New Zealand in a hard fought victory. Both teams are seeking return to winnings ways.

ENG vs BAN PREVIEW

After conceding a narrow defeat to Pakistan in their last World Cup fixture, Englandwill look to bounce back against Bangladesh when the two teams meet at the Cardiff Wales Stadium on Saturday.

England, touted as favourites for the ongoing World Cup, suffered a 14-run loss to Pakistan at Trent Bridge on Monday. While their bowlers went for plenty conceding 348 runs, England batsmen also failed to come out with an attacking performance which has been associated with them over the last two years.

It was only Joe Root and Jos Buttler who kept them in the hunt with brilliant centuries that almost sealed the game until their lower order faltered.

However, captain Eoin Morgan put the onus of their defeat on their poor fielding. England let down a couple of catches and were sloppy in the field.

Jason Roy let down a rather easy catch of Mohammad Hafeez, who played a match-winning knock of 84 from just 62 balls and played a crucial role in Pakistan reaching around the 350-run mark.

On the other hand, Bangladesh failed to replicate their performance with which they had come out against South Africa in their tournament opener and lost a nervy battle to New Zealand in their last fixture. (ALSO READ: Cricket World Cup 2019: We couldn’t get any big partnerships: Mashrafe Mortaza)

Their bowlers have been able to put up a fine performance in both their outings. However, against New Zealand, their batsmen couldn’t convert their starts and failed to take their team to a significant total.

Going into Saturday’s game, skipper Mashrafe Mortaza will expect his openers and the middle-order batsmen to shoulder some responsibility alongside Shakib Al Hasan, who has been in prime form and set a decent total against the famed England batting line-up which is capable of posting as well as chasing any given target.
