England the defending champions, produced an emphatic response to defeat in their first World Cup match. They also crushed Bangladesh by 137 runs. They made a total of 364/9. Dawid Malan achieved his first World Cup century and 4th of the year. Bangladesh faltered in the foothills in their attempt to achieve a record chase as the return of Reece Topley completely took to pieces the top order of Bangladesh.

At the HPCA stadium pitch, England showed determination to lead the charge. Dawid Malan and Jonny Bairstow began their innings strongly and recorded their first century as openers. Later, Malan and Joe Root’s partnership scored 151 in 19.3 overs to give England a robust foundation for the latter part of the game. They faced the death-bowling of Bangladesh as Shoriful Islam and Mahedi Hasan claimed regular wickets.

Malan and Joe Root

From the final 10.3 overs, even though England faced a setback of 7 wickets for 68, Bangladesh still had to make more than 7 runs an over. The challenge increased further when Topley struck with his 4th, 5th, and 16th balls. He left Bangladesh tottering on 26 for 3, this soon became 49 for 4 as Chris Woakes recovered from an initially costly performance.

Although Little Das started to chase by striking Woakes for three consecutive fours. Mushfiqur Rahim made a half-century, and their partnership scored 72 runs improving the scoreboard. They made a run on every ball. Woakes ended Litton’s hope of a century with an off-cutter that found the outside edge through to Buttler. When Mushfiqur guided a bouncer from Toplry to Deep Third, Bangladesh’s focus became a quest to limit the damage on their net run rate.

England comforted the margin of victory. No one among the current XI exudes the same level of certainty better than Malan. His transition from a backup to a key player in just a few months is unbelievable. On his fourth ball delivered by Mustafizur Rahman was stroked through extra cover, setting the tone for his innings. He showcased a wide array of shots throughout his impressive 107-ball stay including pulls, flicks, and slog-sweeps. It was a master class in acceleration.

Bangladesh thought they had given out Malan behind in single figures, but the on-field call stood after a DRS review confirmed the ball brushed his shoulder. That was the closest Bangladesh came to taking a wicket in the opening powerplay. Malan’s replay came in the form of four, followed by a powerful six he launched over deep backward square. As a result, England found themselves in a strong position at 61 for 0 after ten overs.

Malan scored fifty off 39 balls, 40 of those runs being boundaries. Bairstow was able to play a little more cautious approach. Despite the situation, Shakib stood out as the only bowler to exert any control. Root found his groove, ending a five-over boundary drought by hitting Mustafizur for a six over fine leg. Then he played a reverse paddle four against Shakib.

In the following over, Malan crashed Mehidy Hasan Miraz for a series of 4, 6, 6, 4. Meanwhile, Root achieved his second consecutive 50 in the tournament from 44 balls. Root surpassed Graham Gooch to become England’s highest run scorer in World Cups.

England gave the target of 364 before Topley ripped through Bangladesh’s to make a comfortable win.
