Jason Roy hits 153 as England beat Bangladesh in Cardiff

England piled on their highest World Cup total in a 106-run defeat of Bangladesh that got their bid to lift the trophy for the first time back on track. The hosts amassed 386-6 in Cardiff, thanks mainly to Jason Roy’s powerful 153, the second-best score by an England batsman in the competition. Jonny Bairstow made 51 and Jos Buttler an action-packed 64, but a hip injury sustained when batting prevented Buttler from keeping wicket. If that was a small negative in what was a mainly strong response to the defeat by Pakistan, so too was some of England’s bowling, with Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid below their best. However, the required run rate was never under control and Bangladesh were bowled out for 280, with Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes each taking three wickets.
