Jason Roy's collision with umpire delays century celebrations

Jason Roy's collision with umpire delays century celebrations”

Bangladesh sprang an early surprise in the tournament by defeating South Africa on Sunday and the Asian side have also beaten England in World Cup matches in 2011 and 2015.

The West Indies' loss is quite clearly England's gain.

Cricket writer for The Guardian, Ali Martin, likened Archer's effort to famous Aussie speedster Jeff Thomson nearly hitting the sightscreen on the full in his pomp. "Within this came the most eye-catching of breakthroughs too".

Thanks to remarkable display of batting by Jason Roy, England on Saturday piled up the biggest total of this year's World Cup against Bangladesh.

"Yeah, I think the weather will have an impact", he told a pre-match news conference.

At Lord's, England opener Dennis Amiss crunched 18 fours on his way to 137 from 147 deliveries against India for the first World Cup century.

England would not like to admit they were needled by Pakistan's verbals but are wary that Bangladesh have previous form for similar, specifically during an ill-tempered 2016 defeat in Dhaka.

The English players in the dressing room who stood up to applaud Roy's innings broke into laughter after witnessing the collision.

Such was their speed in Cardiff, with the wind at their backs, that Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who made an admirable century, rated them the fastest bowlers at the World Cup.

Roy was not to be deterred, reaching his ninth ODI hundred off 92 balls, before passing 150 with three successive sixes, only to fall the very next ball chasing another big hit.

Ashraful said Bangladesh missed a great chance to win their last match against New Zealand, which they lost by two wickets at The Oval on Wednesday. "To be honest. He just goes on and gets big scores, and it can range from 140 to 180, and the rate at which he gets it, he's just so hard to contain".

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza: "The pitch has been under cover for the last two days and hopefully it will give the bowlers some assistance".

Plunkett was dropped for the Pakistan match despite a solid two-wicket outing in England's win over the Proteas and his ability to make things happen in the periods where batsmen typically take fewer risks was missed.

He took heart from how Bangladesh had almost defended a target of 245 against New Zealand, saying the team were in good spirits as they prepared to face England. Bangladesh has one victory from three and plays Sri Lanka on Tuesday.
