Abu Dhabi, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 27th Oct, 2021 ) :Opening batsman Jason Roy on Wednesday credited the England bowlers for helping set up a second successive victory at the Twenty20 World Cup with an eight-wicket drubbing of Bangladesh.
Roy smashed 61 off 38 balls as England romped to their victory target of 125 in 14.1 overs in the Super 12 clash in Abu Dhabi.
"We took our catches and fielded and bowled really well. We got off to a great start with the bats and then just capitalised on a lower total." England left-arm quick Tymal Mills took three wickets and combined with spinners Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone to restrict Bangladesh to 124-9 in the two nations' first ever meeting in the format.
"Our camp has been together since 2015 like," he said. "We've created bonds outside of cricket and on the field, which I think plays a huge part in travelling the world and playing good cricket." "We understand our roles in the team as individuals and as teammates." Bangladesh, who lost their opening Super 12 match to Sri Lanka, lost regular wickets after electing to bat first.
Moeen, an off-spinner, had Liton Das caught at deep square leg for nine and then sent Mohammad Naim trudging back to the pavilion for five.
Livingstone trapped Mushfiqur lbw, but England had to use the umpire referral after the onfield official ruled it not out.
"We are more skilled hitters than power hitters, we don't want to change that because we believe we can post good totals. We need to reassess and come up with a good plan." Bangladesh's batting effort was well below par and the England batsmen having little trouble in their batting reply despite losing Jos Buttler for 18.
Roy smashed five fours and three sixes in an attacking knock that took the steam out of the Bangladesh bowling.
Malan, who did not bat in the first match, got useful batting timeBoth team stook the knee before the start of the game with much focus on the anti-racism gesture after South Africa's Quinton de Kock pulled out of a match against West Indies on Tuesday because he refused to obey the national cricket board's orders.
