Earlier, Bangladesh bowlers had an torrid day as the hosts went onto post the highest total of this World Cup of 386 for 6 in 50 overs. Jason Roy punished all the bowlers during his knock of 153 to power his side to the mammoth total. Mehidy Hasan and Mohammad Saifuddin were the most successful bowlers with two wickets each.

In response, Tigers lost both opener Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal without scoring big. But a 106-run stand between in form Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim reprieved the innings. Mushfiqur looked good in the crease before got out by Liam Plunkett on 44. Shakib on the other end played an brilliant knock of 121 off 119 balls. No other batsmen gave him any support as England kept taking wickets in regular intervals and eventually bowled Bangladesh out for 280 in the 49th over. Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer scalped three wickets each for England.
