Share

DUBAI – Jason Roy's 61-run knock helped England to bag a comprehensive win against Bangladesh in the Super 12 stage of the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

The English team achieved the target of 125 runs in 14.1 overs at the loss of two wickets. 

Earlier, Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah had won the toss and decided to bat first against England.

Their bowling unit was right on the job as the Morgan-led squad bundled out West Indies for a paltry 55 in 14.2 overs before cantering home in 8.2 overs.

Meanwhile, ‘The Tigers’ will also look to march forward and leave behind a disappointing five-wicket loss against Sri Lanka in their opening fixture.
