Captain Morgan will not rob Roy of England opening spot

Captain Morgan will not rob Roy of England opening spot

England prevailed too in Bangladesh a year ago, when they had to dig deep for a 2-1 series verdict, and Mashrafe is not about to proclaim his team's victory prospects this time.

England were already an unbeatable 2-0 up in the three-match series against South Africa and although Morgan was glad the reverse had come before the Champions Trophy rather than during the tournament, it remains a worry.

England used to be short of firepower at the top of the order, but, despite a poor showing in the third match against South Africa at Lord's, destructive openers Alex Hales and Jason Roy are able to set the tone.

"Monday was a nice reminder of how anything can happen in one-day cricket", said Morgan, who collected the player of the series award.

After being asked to bat first at the Oval, the Bangladeshi openers started things slow as it seemed that they were judging the nature of the Oval pitch. "Especially at home, they are a serious side".

Price makes season debut in loss
After fouling the pitch off the plate and being hit flush in the face, Cabrera stayed in the game and hit an infield single. Todd Frazier and Tim Anderson homered for Chicago , but the White Sox took the loss after winning four of five.

"Morgan added: "(Bairstow) has been very good when he's come in but one of the strongest parts of reinforcing the way we play, and the freedom, is backing that up with (consistent) selection". And if he does, he can prove very risky to competing teams' chances of victory.

Bangladesh have played 19 ODIs against England so far, losing the first 12 games.

While Roy has form concerns, England have some injury worries too.

"It went all right, I bowled 10 deliveries off a full run this (Thursday) morning", Stokes told Sky Sports.

India boosts of the best pace attack of all time with Mohammad Shami, Bhuveneshawar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav and Hardik Pandya in the combination. Look as professional players you have to take it as a game because when the game starts it's a battle between bat and ball, so we have planned to take it as a game. Ben Stokes 6. Jos Buttler (wk) 7. "We will see how he pulls up tomorrow to see how much he will bowl", he said.

"There´s no pain there but it doesn´t mean that I won´t feel no pain".

England has a formidable batting line-up comprising of some elegant stroke-makers and destructive power hitters.

Fifth in the ICC ODI rankings, England's rise since exiting the 2015 World Cup on a dismal note has been rapid.

But Waqar, who also wore the coach's hat not so long ago, said that it was hard to envisage which Pakistan will turn up on the day but added that a win against India could do wonders to their confidence. "After then, England is a totally different team". The Indian captain, known for his aggressive captaincy will be batting at no 3 and will need to take the bulk of a load of scoring as he has done in the last few years.

The Group A also includes Australia and New Zealand. Little by little, we are coming up. Meanwhile, the Bangladesh side has some world class spinners in Sakib Al Hassan and Mehedi Hasan who can cast a web if they get to bowl on turning tracks. I have always believed that when you play against Pakistan it is important to remove all the distractions from your mind. "We know that the game has gone quite a long way and we have seen some good results in the near past, so we will do our best to match that". This trophy, there is a lot of hope, but realistically, we have to play at our best to be honest.
