Woakes to miss remainder of Champions Trophy?


The Warwickshire man bowled just two overs in the eight-wicket tournament-opening win at the Oval yesterday before leaving the field in pain.

England's total was also the highest score by a team batting second to win a Champions Trophy match, topping Sri Lanka's 297 for three against them at the Oval four years ago.

Root's innings was his highest in one-day internationals, surpassing his 125 against South Africa at Centurion previous year. "It is what you strive for as a batter in the side to make a big contribution and be not out at the end".

Sarkar took the attack to Jake Ball (1-82) hitting him for a six and two boundaries in the 11th over but was caught in the deep in the next over bowled by Ben Stokes (1-42), ending the 56-run opening stand.

A touch player in an England top-order replete with power-hitters, Root's unbeaten 133 was a characteristically majestic innings by a batsman nearly incapable of playing an ugly shot.

Meanwhile, Morgan reiterated his faith in the out-of-form Jason Roy, who made just a single before he was well caught by Mustafizur Rahman trying to ramp Mashrafe Mortaza over short fine leg.

Courtesy Tamim's (128 off 142 balls) ninth ODI hundred and a 166-run partnership for the third wicket with Mushfiqur Rahim (79 off 72), Bangladesh shrugged off the disappointment of a batting debacle against India in the practice game.

England have never won a major International Cricket Council one-day international tournament but entered this edition of the Champions Trophy with high hopes after a resurgence in the 50-format following their woeful first-round exit at the 2015 World Cup.

Morgan said his team has the firepower in the pace department even though Bangladesh managed t post a 305-run total on the board.

Tamim put on 166 runs for the third wicket with Mushfiqur, passing his ninth one-day global hundred from 111 balls as he paced an assault which brought Bangladesh 83 in the last 10 overs - despite the dismissal of both set batsmen to successive Plunkett deliveries. Stokes and Tamim were involved in a verbal altercation as tempers frayed in the sunshine but the lefthander reached his century off 124 balls, including two sixes and 11fours.

The 28-year-old, who drove Ali for another soaring straight six, fell when wicket-keeper Jos Buttler held a skyed pull off Plunkett. "If the other batsmen could have chipped in, in the last few overs, maybe it would have been a different ball game", he said.

"Actually, we took the decision so that the batsman could play with more freedom".

Root deftly worked the ball off his pads and behind square on the off side and, despite being in obvious discomfort after suffering the injury on 61, completed a 10th ODI hundred.
