Rampant Roy fires England to their highest ever World Cup total

The 12th match of the ICC World Cup 2019 will be played today between hosts England and Bangladesh at Cardiff at 2-30 PM (PST).

Where will this match be played in England vs Bangladesh World Cup 2019?

Both openers have come unstuck against spin during this tournament - a 104-run win for England over South Africa and an unexpected 14-run defeat by Pakistan.

The Test gloveman was behind the stumps after Jos Buttler suffered a hip injury during a typically dashing 64.

England were sent in to bat by Tigers captain Mashrafe Mortaza on a green-tinged pitch, but Roy and Bairstow (51) seized the initiative during a rapid first-wicket stand of 128.

The 28-year-old hammered Shakib for three consecutive boundaries shortly before Root (21) inside-edged Mohammad Saifuddin onto his stumps and continued apace alongside Buttler, thumping Mehidy for three leg-side sixes before he holed out to extra-cover.

Koeman urges de Ligt to make a decision
All four clubs have more to offer than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side yet some reports still claim he has an advantage. De Ligt was instrumental in that run with United seemingly targeting him to short up their leaky defence.

The victory will help to exorcise the ghost of 2015 World Cup when England were knocked out by Bangladesh after beating them by 15 runs.

The in-form Roy completed a 92-ball century in freaky fashion when, not looking, he collided with umpire Joel Wilson as he completed what should have been a single to take him to 97, only for Mohammad Mithun at deep square leg to misfield a ball that went for four.

Earlier, Jason Roy's 153 took England to 386-6 - the highest total of the World Cup so far - as Bangladesh's attack took a battering.

Morgan (35) and Stokes (6) then fell in the space of three balls - skying Mehidy and Mustafizur Rahman respectively - only for Plunkett and Woakes to run amok at the death.

A shaken Wilson took a while to get to his feet, as England's players looked on from the balcony of the team's dressing room with laughter and then in apparent concern.

The England batsman was on 96 when he pulled the ball through midwicket and found the boundary courtesy of an error from a Bangladesh fielder.
