Tamim century lifts Bangladesh to 305-6 against England

But they proved they have both the necessary firepower and knowhow as they exacted a measure of revenge for the defeat against these same opponents in Adelaide which ended their hopes at the 2015 World Cup.

England vs Bangladesh (Eng V Ban) Champions Trophy Live: After the world famous Indian Premier League 10th edition, it is time for an global event.

England have endured plenty of limited-overs anguish in major tournaments over the years but they have a golden opportunity to claim a first ICC Champions Trophy on home soil.

Marginally, the second is perhaps the most worrying - because in Jonny Bairstow England have an in-form alternative to open the innings.

For England this was exactly the start they needed to a tournament in which they are heavily favoured.

Bangladesh have undoubtedly been one of the most improved nations over recent years and they took the scalps of Ireland and New Zealand in Dublin at the start of May. Aside from that setback, they have competed well in United Kingdom conditions, notching wins against New Zealand and Ireland in Dublin and losing a tight match in the final over against Pakistan at Edgbaston.

Other options are Steven Finn, Toby Roland-Jones and Tom Curran, but with Broad you've got a guy who has an aura. The track, however, offers assistance to pacemen who bend their backs, as India demonstrated in that final warm-up game.

Tamim Iqbal scored a brilliant 128 againse England as Bangladesh posted a challenging total of 305/6 in the opening Group A match of the ICC Champions Trophy at the Kennington Oval. Neither will take a backward step: their contest could well dictate the course of the match.

However, Root, who reached the three figure mark off 115 balls ensured England completed the chase in 47.2 overs with eight wickets in hand after an unbeaten 103 run stand that came for the third wicket skipper Eoin Morgan (75 not out), whose runs came at strike-rate of 122. The captain averages almost 82 in his last 16 ODI innings and top-scored with 43 in the 2013 final, which was reduced to 20 overs because of rain. Morgan has confirmed that the 25-year-old will play as a specialist batsman if he's unfit to bowl. A first-class average of 67, with seven centuries from 22 matches, allied to his developing off-spin and electric fielding, marks him out as a youngster worth keeping an eye on.

Bangladesh looked short of firepower in the bowling, which called in to question their decision to pick eight batsmen rather than the off-spinner Mehedi Hasan or the extra pace of Taskin Ahmed.

After 15 overs, England were 76 for the loss of one wicket.

All-rounder Ben Stokes returned from his impressive maiden IPL stint to help England take an unassailable 2-0 lead in a one-day worldwide series against South Africa but a knee issue led him to skip the final match, which the tourists won.
