England post massive total of 386 runs against Bangladesh

CARDIFF: A tremendous knock by Jason Roy (153 runs off 121 balls) and exemplary batting by other batsmen powered England to post a mammoth total of 386 runs here at Sophia Gardens on Saturday.

After being invited to bat, England got off to a flying start as the opening pair of Jason and Bairstow thrashed Bangladesh bowlers and added 128 runs for the first wicket.

Finally, in the 19.1 over, Bangladesh got a chance to quench their wicket thirst, when Mashrafe Mortaza sent Bairstow back to the hut on a score of 51 runs off 50 balls. (AGENCIES)
