Chris Woakes and Liam Plunkett went on a rampage in the last few overs of the first inning of the match against Bangladesh to help England post a massive 386/6 score in the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
England’s opening batsman dominated the Bangladeshi 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.
In the second inning Shakib al Hasan scored a great 119-ball 121 for Bangladesh before being bowled by Ben Stokes in their chase of 387 runs set by the English team in Cardiff.
Shakib brought up his century in 95 balls. After Shakib’s wicket fell, 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.
