Bangladesh vs England, Ban vs Eng Highlights: Shakib al Hasan scored a great 119-ball 121 before being bowled by Ben Stokes for Bangladesh in their chase of 387 against England in Cardiff. Shakib brought up his century in 95 balls. After Shakib’s wicket, Bangladesh lost their way, losing wickets as the required run rate kept creeping up. They finally lost by 106 runs, with Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes taking three wickets each. Opener Soumya Sarkar (2) was castled by Jofra Archer’s blistering pace early on and Tamim Iqbal (19) then offered a catch to Eoin Morgan at cover. Mushfiqur Rahim (41) put on a 106-run partnership with Shakib. Mohammad Mithun (0) lasted for only two balls. Joffra Archer bowled the fastest ball of the World Cup, clocked at 153 kph or 95 mph. The record was broken soon after, when Mark Wood clocked a 154 kph delivery.

Chris Woakes (18) and Liam Plunkett (25) went on a rampage in the last few overs to help England post a massive 386/6 in 50 overs. Eoin Morgan (35) and Ben Stokes (6) departed in quick succession to dent England’s hopes of posting the first 400+ score of the tournament. Jason Roy scored 153 at the top of the order. Mashrafe Mortaza claimed the wicket of Jonny Bairstow (51) after a 128-run opening partnership and Saifuddin claimed the wicket of Joe Root (21). After a cautious start against left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan, England openers dominated Bangladesh bowlers. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow put on 128 runs for the first wicket. Roy did the bulk of scoring, reaching his half-century in just 38 deliveries and his century in 92 deliveries. Jos Buttler played through some physical discomfort to score 64, in the process scoring the joint fastest fifty of this World Cup. Bangladesh had won the toss and elected to field first.

World Cup 2019, Bangladesh vs England Highlights

England win by 106 runs

Shakib's 121 goes in vain as England secure 106-run win over Bangladesh.
BAN: 280 (48.5 ovs) Jofra Archer 3/30. Ben Stokes 3/23.

Archer strikes again

Bangladesh lose their ninth wicket. Archer gets an edge off Mehidy Hasan's bat to travel through to the keeper. Mashrafe and Mustafizur are in the middle. That's one line Bangladesh fans never want to hear when their side is batting.

Bangladesh out of it now

So, the chasing side need 115 off 19 balls. Which means that they don't have a chance of winning this match mathematically even.

Bangladesh lose their 8th wicket

BOWLED! Again, Stokes crashes the stumps. Shaifuddin gone for 5. Bangladesh lose their 8th wicket.

Mahmudullah gone for 28

Bangladesh lose their seventh wicket. Mahmudullah gone for 28 off 41 balls.

Bangladesh's next matches

Bangladesh will play Sri Lanka and West Indies next. They have played well in this World Cup, but with this, they will have gone down to two defeats in three matches. There's a lot of potential in this team but another defeat will put their campaign in a lot of trouble.

Sixth wicket falls

Mosaddek Hossain, after a brave knock that lasted 16 balls, departs for 26. Went for one heave too many. Not that he had too many options.

Need 133 off 42

Perhaps the aim for Bangladesh now is to minimize their negative net run  rate by playing out 50 overs and reducing the margin of defeat. If the race for the four semi-final spots goes down to the wire at the end of the round-robin stage, they might look back on this day.

Lusty blows from Mosaddek

Mosaddek Hossain seems to not have lost belief. Hits consecutive fours off Chris Woakes. Has gone to 17 off 9 balls. At the other end, Mahmudullah is on 17 off 30 balls. The equation now 152 runs needed in 54 balls though.

Shakib is out

BOWLED! Shakib is out for 121. Is that the end of hope for Bangladesh? One has to wonder, how different this chase could have been if only he had somebody to partner with him in the later part of the chase.
BAN 219/5 in 39.3 overs

Stokes bowls a maiden over

This is quite unbelievable. Stokes bowls a maiden over. The 38th over of this innings is a maiden over! With the required rate now 15.33. Bangladesh's scoring rate has just fallen away from England's on the scoring comparison graph.

Stokes is introduced

England's sixth bowler for the day, Ben Stokes finally gets the ball with 13 overs left. Bangladesh need 184 runs. They look to be lacking one Andre Russell in their middle order.

Six from Mahmudullah

Mahmudullah finally breaks free. Blasts Adil Rashid over his head for a six. Was on 7 off 22 balls before this. What a strange innings this has been from him under the circumstances. 

Need 202 runs from 95 balls

Mahmudullah is struggling to get his innings going. On 5 runs from 17 balls now. Given how steep the required run rate is, maybe he should give it a go sooner rather than later.

100 for Shakib

Century for Shakib! What a knock this has been! Standing up to the English attack! Can he pull off this chase for Bangladesh? 8th ODI hundred for him.

RPO now above 11

Only 2 runs come off the 31st over. Mahmudullah needing some time to get his eye in. Required rate now above 11. Is this slipping out of Bangladesh's reach now?

Another wicket

WICKET AGAIN! England strike twice in quick succession. Mithun is out for a duck. Mahmudullah joins Shakib in the middle. Required rate has climbed above 10.

Partnership broken

WICKET! Mushfiqur is out just when Bangladesh were starting to look dangerous. Jason Roy grabs the catch from a leading edge. Mohammad Mithun has joined Shakib. Shakib nearing his century.
BAN 169/3 in 29 overs

100-run partnership

100-run partnership is up between Shakib and Mushfiqur. It has taken them 98 balls. The asking run rate is above 10 now, but these two have done very well to ensure the chase stays within achievable proportions.

Stokes's poor record in Cardiff

Ben Stokes has still not been brought on. With good reason maybe. Stokes's bowling average in Cardiff ODIs is 113.50. Morgan sticking on with Rashid despite the fact that the batsmen have clearly locked on to him as the one to go after.

Shakib becomes leading scorer of World Cup 2019

Shakib al Hasan becomes the leading run scorer of this World Cup! He is spearheading this chase with style. Has overtaken Jason Roy.
Shakib now on 85 off 79 balls. As long as he is out there, Bangladesh will believe this is not beyond them.

Batsmen going after Rashid

Both batsmen are looking to have decided that Adil Rashid is the bowler they should go after. They seem to think the weak link in this bowling attack is the only bowler who is not a pacer.


Mushfiqur almost hits one to the fielder but Jason Roy cannot hold on to it. He got one hand to it. May have even hurt himself in the process.
You would not be able to tell where this match was going on! 'Bangladesh Bangladesh', the chants ring out loudly.

Splendid show from Shakib

What a brilliantly paced innings this has been from Shakib. Has been batting at a run-a-ball rate from the very beginning. Is now on 72 off 68 balls. Has not taken the aerial route as much as some of the England batsmen, but he's managed to keep his score ticking throughout. Great show from the world's best all-rounder.

50 for Shakib

50 for Shakib! His sixth fifty in his last seven matches! It's his third of this World Cup. Bangladesh need him to stay till the end of this chase.

Adil Rashid is brought on

Rashid's previous figures against Bangladesh: 4/49, 2/53, 4/43.
Wood is carrying on from the other end. Wood has also crossed the 150 kph mark today. 

Required run rate climbs above 9

The asking run rate has climbed above 9 for the first time in this chase. We get into drinks after 17 overs with Bangladesh at 87/2. The current run rate is just above 5. These are still early phases of the chase though. Bangladesh will be hoping one of these two stay on till the end of the chase. 

"Tasty cricket"

Bangladesh are up against it but they're giving it a fair fight. "Tasty cricket," Michael Atherton describes the action. Shakib, now on 44 off 45 balls, is leading the charge. 

Tamim out for 19

WICKET! The partnership between Shakib and Tamim is broken. Wood strikes in his very first over. Catch for Morgan at cover. Tamim never really got going today. Is out for 19. Mushfiqur Rahim joins Shakib.

Change of bowling

Plunkett and Mark Wood have replaced Woakes and Archer after the first 10 overs.

Blistering Jofra

96% of Jofra Archer's deliveries in this opening spell have been over 140kph. Jofra Archer's average speed in that spell was 145.93kph. That's the fastest any England bowler has bowled in Overs 1-10 of an ODI since 2006.
Shakib has been the more aggressive in this partnership.

Unusual four

Archer is absolutely unplayable right now! Concedes a four in the strangest way. Bowled a fast bouncer. Tamim went for evasive action. Ball struck the back of his shoulder and flew to the fine leg boundary.
Shakib al Hasan is troubled by Archer's pace as well. Manages to get the last ball of the over for a six in the fine leg region though. Bangladesh put up 48/1 after the first 10 overs.

Shakib, Tamim build partnership

Bangladesh senior pros Shakib al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal have endured this early pace attack from England well after the early wicket. Archer is bowling his fifth over. How England will use his spells will be interesting to see.

How many times have we seen the bowler hit a six!

Jofra Archer clocks 153 kph

The fourth ball of the sixth over is bowled at a speed of 153 kph! Shakib does well to sway out of its way. Jofra Archer's slowest delivery so far in Cardiff has been 138kph, which would have been the third fastest of the Bangladesh bowling innings.

Bangladesh living dangerously

Edges flying, mistimed pulls landing in no man's land - Bangladesh are living dangerously early on. They're clearly going after Woakes. Archer too hot to handle at the moment.

First wicket

BOWLED! Absolutely unplayable from Jofra Archer! Soumya Sarkar's off stump is disturbed. Bangladesh lose their first wicket. There was a half-chance for Joe Root in the slips just before this. A dive could have seen the end of Soumya. Root does not have to bemoan that for long as the very next ball sees that happening. Shakib al Hasan comes in at No. 3.

How good is this England team!

Archer starts off with a maiden over

Joffra Archer concedes no runs in his first over. Woakes conceded 1 run. Tight beginning from the England bowlers. Bangladesh 1/0 after 2 overs. There's a long chase ahead, might be a good idea for one of the openers to set himself up for a big big innings. Something like Roy's 153 for the hosts.

Chase begins

Bangladesh need 387 to win. Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar are in the middle. Woakes has the new ball for England. And we're off!
