In their second World Cup match on Tuesday here, defending champions England beat Bangladesh by a score of 137 runs to get back on track. When England was put in to bat, Jonny Bairstow (52) and Joe Root (82) both blasted half-centuries to propel England to a threatening 364 for 9. Dawid Malan smacked an outstanding 140. Litton Das (76) and Mushfiqur Rahim (51) scored the most of the runs as Bangladesh was dismissed for 227 in 48.2 overs in response.
While Chris Woakes (2/49) broke two wickets, Reece Topley (4/43) claimed four. After putting on 115 runs for the first wicket with Bairstow (52 off 59 balls, 8x4s), Malan and Root later scored 151 runs for the second wicket. With stats of 8-0-71-4, Mahedi Hasan was Bangladesh's best bowler, while left-arm seamer Shoriful Islam got three wickets.
After receiving a thrashing in their first game, England responded by dishing one out in their second match, defeating Bangladesh by 137 runs. Bangladesh's batting is over when Taskin is castled by Curran off the second ball of the 49th over. They have all been declared out for 227, which implies that England has largely repaired the harm done to their NRR in the first encounter against New Zealand.
