Champions Trophy 2017: England Pacer Chris Woakes Ruled Out Of Tournament

England pulled off the highest successful run chase in Champions Trophy history when they beat Bangladesh by eight wickets in the opening match at The Oval on Thursday.

England were rarely troubled during their run-chase and Root, England's recently-appointed Test captain, said: "We are a (one-day) side that are getting better at it (chasing totals in excess of 300)".

His struggles were brought into sharper focus by Hales and Joe Root combining after Roy's departure for a second-wicket stand of 159 to help England to an eight-wicket win in Group A.

Hales however, missed out on a well-deserved hundred.

Morgan at the other end was finding the boundaries at will en route to his 33rd half century.

England will now play their next game against New Zealand on June 6 at the Sophia Gardens, Cardiff whereas Bangladesh lock horns with Australia at this very venue on June 5. He along with skipper Mushfiqur Rahim (79) added 166 runs in 25.1 overs to hand a crucial advantage to the visitors.

With around seven an over needed from the final 10 overs, England kicked on with Morgan (75 not out from 61 balls) twice clearing the ropes and Root, hobbling slightly after rolling his ankle, going through to three figures. Good to start on this note. The six came off Moeen Ali - an inside out lofted shot over long-off.

Stokes and Tamim were involved in a verbal altercation as tempers frayed in the sunshine but the left-hander reached his century off 124 balls, including two sixes and 11 fours.

The Men in Blue, who won the coveted title back in 2013, couldn't have found a better opponent than arch-rivals Pakistan to begin their title defence in England and Wales.

Bangladesh got off to a solid if somewhat slow start with Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar (28) taking 56 off the first 12 overs before the latter was caught in the deep by substitute fielder Jonny Baistow off the bowling of Ben Stokes.

Imrul Kayes (19) played an aggressive cameo before becoming the first of Liam Plunkett's four victims.
