England vs Bangladesh, ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Cricket England register a comprehensive eight-wicket win over Bangladesh.

England’s ICC Champions Trophy 2017 got off to a brilliant start as the Three Lions beat Bangladesh by eight wickets at The Oval on Thursday. Set a 306-run target, England lost just two wickets and overhauled the target with 16 deliveries to spare. Joe Root remained unbeaten on 133 – his best ODI score – and he was ably assisted by skipper Eoin Morgan’s unbeaten 75. It was Alex Hales who put the chase on track with his fluent 95 at top of the order. Earlier, Bangladesh rode on Tamim Iqbal’s hundred and Mushfiqur Rahim’s 75 to post a 300+ total but it was the ordinary bowling in the second half of the game which cost them the match.

England vs Bangladesh: As it happened

*After 47.2 overs, England are 308/2, Joe Root 133*, Eoin Morgan 75*. Mortaza gave Bangladesh the early breakthrough but it was England show since then. Both Hales and Root put on a mammoth stand before the opener fell short of a well-deserved 100 and went back to the hut after scoring a fluent 95. Morgan came in and completed the chase with the right-hander. The skipper scored a fluent 75 while Root hit an unbeaten 133 in the chase

* Innings wrap: Bangladesh post 300/6 against England at The Oval in the tournament opener. After put into bat first, Bangladesh had a steady start before losing Somya Sarkar and Imrul Kayes. Rahim and Tamim Iqbal then combined well to put the innings on track and then accelerate. Tamim (128) hit a brilliant hundred while Rahim (79) scored a fluent fifty

TOSS: England win toss, elect to bowl against Bangladesh. England would now look to keep the Shakib-led unit to a decent total and chase it down later. The hosts are back to full strength and Ben Stokes is back after missing the final ODI against South Africa

England Playing XI: Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood, Jake Ball

Bangladesh Playing XI: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain

    POTENTIALSPELLTEMPLE . Good luck! NUMBER 1(209)265-8144 Lets be realistic there's never anyway you are going to get your money back after being scammed through the normal conventional ways. I got scammed in March for $26,000 USD by some con stars in Africa and I reported it to the police here in California and till date nothing has been done from their end. But last month i read about a Spell Caster who helped people who were scammed recover their moneys back after they sent moneys overseas, I promptly contacted Prophet Savior via email and he prepared a potent Spell for me that he used in making all those who took my money refund my money back to me. In 3 days i got all my money back, I am happy i used this unconventional method to get my money back because this chaps are so wicked and inhuman. I am happy and grateful to Prophet Sarahuja who made this possible and I even tried to reward him with $5,000 but he didn't accept all I did was purchase the materials useD.

    I believe anybody that owns 100 of your heart is worth fighting for. Yes, I am boasting because I never adhered to some negative advice from my parents when I was about getting married. There was a war between our two family then my husband was his mothers puppy, his family members used him a lot that he cant make any decision without consulting them. What surprised me most was the moment a 36-year-old man seeks his parent and some family members consent before dating anyone, the worst happened when he was instructed to bring me along to their country home in Rampart, New Orleans, it was risky to accept such invitation.The war between our families started when he finally proposed (that was about 4 years ago), his family gave some conditions if he must wife me (we have to live with them), I was in shock when my husband accepted and was happy with their conditions (so crazy). My family wagged and demanded I should breakup with him immediately.I decided to give him the last shot as a man
