ICC Champions Trophy 2017: England (Eng) vs Bangladesh (Ban) match prediction

ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Google has marked the beginning of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England with a special animated Doodle.

Jos Buttler then comes in during the last ten overs, and it is absolute carnage as the Bangladesh bowlers get hit all across the park, with England finishing their innings on 345. Uncertainty persists as to the condition of Stokes' knee but he - along with Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid - will be key to England's chances of success in the Champions Trophy. Hosts England, who have shown radical transformation as a potent limited-overs side following the debacle in the 2015 ICC World Cup in Australia, will bear the "Dark Horse" tag in this fast-paced, action-packed tournament. Liam Plunkett took 4 wickets for 59.

"The bowlers were outstanding in the two games".

England, who came into this tournament featuring the world´s top eight ODI sides as one of the favourites after making huge strides in white-ball cricket in the last two years, were given plenty to think about after skipper Eoin Morgan opted to field despite sunny skies promising good batting conditions.

Jonny Bairstow appears set to miss out as England stick with the out-of-form Jason Roy. Stokes has been passed fit to play but will have another test on the morning of the game to see how much he can bowl; that may affect the balance of the attack, with Jake Ball the first-reserve seamer.

"We just recently beat New Zealand in Ireland", Mortaza told reporters at The Oval on Wednesday. "It´s just we couldn´t finish well, that´s it".

"I haven't seen a team win a global tournament playing defensively", said England coach Trevor Bayliss.

"I am very confident that India would do well in the Champions Trophy and they will defend the title, especially the way they played in the last two warm-up games", the stylish Hyderabadi batsman said.

"We know that the game has gone quite a long way and we have had some good results in the recent past, so we will do our best to match that".

"The other thing also, is that we have some exciting youngsters like Mustafizur and Sabbir Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, those players are also in our side".

Bangladesh highlighted the issue of under-performing openers in dramatic style by collapsing to 84 all out in reply to Champions Trophy title-holders India's 324 for seven in their final warm-up match at the Oval on Tuesday.

Former England captain Andrew Strauss has said that despite England's fifth ranking, their one-day game has improved enough to make them real contenders.

Mark Wood brought himself into the limelight after his stunning final over in the second ODI against South Africa handed England the series. Joe Root scored unbeaten 133 runs whereas Alex Hales fell short of just 5 runs to reach his sixth ODI Century. "Our depth is probably our strength", he said, comparing the 2017 squad to teams past.
