Bangladesh on facing England: 'Must be confident with our tactics'

England would not like to admit they were needled by Pakistan's verbals but are wary Bangladesh have previous form for similar, specifically during an ill-tempered 2016 defeat in Dhaka. 'Pakistan are pretty good like that, they can get niggly.

Jofra Archer went for 79 from his 10 barren overs against Pakistan and it is possible that Eoin Morgan will rotate his quicks with Liam Plunkett returning to his starting XI on Saturday having been left out of the side against Pakistan.

With lively late-over cameos from Chris Woakes and Plunkett, England ensured they were not quite done with breaking records, passing their highest World Cup total of 338 - set against India in 2011 - as well as finishing with the highest ODI total ever made on this ground.

"But we've played in big competitions... around the world at the Indian Premier League and (Australia's) Big Bash in front of big crowds, so it shouldn't be too much for the players".

"Australia only played one game, which is not what you want in a competition, and it has a big effect on how the wickets will play and be prepared and the groundsmen have an extremely hard job preparing three wickets, as opposed to just one, for one game".

Opener Jason Roy became England's third century-maker of the tournament after Joe Root and Jos Buttler when he reached three figures against Bangladesh. In any case, against New Zealand, their batsmen couldn't change over their begins and neglected to take their team to a huge aggregate. They see an exciting team the majority of the time. "I thought we bowled really, really well against South Africa and against New Zealand".

"They're a strong squad". South Africa started with these tactics.

Mumbai: England all-rounder Moeen Ali was a part of the playing eleven in England's first two matches against South Africa and Pakistan.

Almost 200 miles up the road at Headingley, fearsome Australia paceman Dennis Lillee bowled Pakistan opener Sadiq Mohammad and captain Asif Iqbal en route to figures of five for 34 for the first five-wicket haul in one-day internationals.

"We've put in a well-rounded performance so I'm extremely happy with the boys".

"You are always disappointed when you don't get selected".

England touted as top picks for the progressing World Cup, endured a 14-run misfortune to Pakistan at Trent Bridge on Monday.

"I'm sure Jofra will be chomping at the bit to come at us and we will be ready for him", Reifer told reporters. Adil Rashid endured a modest game in Nottingham - he conceded 43 from five overs - and seeing as he is still nursing a long-standing shoulder injury, he could be the one to miss out.
