Captain Morgan will not rob Roy of England opening spot

Ball 2: 1 run, slower length delivery, 105 kph, pushes it towards the diving extra cover. The second ball was dug out again, but this time Klusener foolishly thought there was single - which there wasn't - leaving last man Donald run-out. Shami looked solid with the ball, picking up a wicket giving away just 17 runs from his six overs.

Pakistan, who upset the odds to draw a Test series in England a year ago, have already been in Birmingham for two weeks in preparation for their bid to win the Champions Trophy, a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day worldwide teams.

Today marks the start of 2017 ICC Champions Trophy cricket tournament and to get you in the mood, Google has made an interactive cricket game, which is insanely addictive.

England were rarely troubled during their run-chase and Root, England's recently-appointed Test captain, said: "We are a (one-day) side that are getting better at it (chasing totals in excess of 300)".

During the 2015 World Cup, Mushfiqur had shared a 141-run stand with Mahmudullah - their previous highest stand outside Asia - against the same opposition at the Adelaide Oval.

It was a result that led England to completely revamp their approach to the white-ball game.

Bangladesh play their second game on Monday, against Australia, while hosts England will entertain New Zealand the next day. On Friday, Australia will take on New Zealand in Birmingham.

He also spent some time in the middle. You have to focus on the task at hand and I am sure Virat will tell his team the same.

However, Mortaza added: "But we know that we are also a better side; that we are a very improving side". According to ICC, we will be seeing a new drone technology for handling advanced pitch analysis and a new VR experience for fans at the stadium. The ICC anticipates more than 100 million cumulative clip views during the Champions Trophy this year. He is an aggressive player, he has confidence and you should also encourage such players.

But Bangladesh, skittled out for just 84 by Champions Trophy holders India in a warm-up match at the Oval on Tuesday, gave them some nervy moments in the field.

A good example of this would be the 1999 World Cup semi-final between South Africa and Australia, a match that will be discussed long into the future.
