England vs Bangladesh | Twitter Reacts As Jason, Jos And Jofra Shine For England At Cardiff

England registered a spectacular victory of 106 runs over Bangladesh in Match 12 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in Cardiff. It was an important win for the hosts after being defeated by Pakistan in the previous game.

Earlier, Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow began in splendid fashion as they put up an opening partnership of 128 runs. While Bairstow got out scoring 51, Roy registered a scintillating ton as he smashed 153 runs from just 121 balls, hitting five sixes and fourteen boundaries.

Jos Buttler scored a quickfire 64 runs from just 44 balls as he set up the pace for England innings. The wicketkeeper-batsman hit four sixes and two boundaries during his stay at the crease.

The duo of Chris Woakes and Liam Plunkett provided a late flourish to the England innings. The hosts scored 45 runs in the last three overs as they ended up posting their seventh consecutive total in excess of 300 in ODIs, with a mammoth 386/6 on board.

The England pacers began remarkably well. Jofra Archer who dismissed Soumya Sarkar had the ball going for a six after it clipped the bails. He also clocked at a speed of 153kph, which is the fastest in this World Cup so far.

Shakib Al Hasan put up a magnificent hundred even though Bangladesh kept faltering. He stood against the odds and delivered with a spectacular innings of 121 runs from 119 balls. He also became only the second Bangladeshi player after Mahmudullah to score a hundred in the World Cup.

Throughout the innings, Bangladesh hardly stood a chance except for the one moment when Shakib and Mushfiqur looked dangerous. The Tigers were eventually bundled for a total of 280 in the penultimate over.
