England win the toss and invite Bangladesh to bat in opening match

England captain Eoin Morgan made a decision to field first in their Champions Trophy opener against Bangladesh at The Oval.

Earlier, courtesy Tamim's ninth ODI hundred and a 166- run partnership for the third wicket with Mushfiqur Rahim (79 off 72), Bangladesh shrugged off the disappointment of a batting debacle against India in the practice game.

As for the bowling for England, Liam Plunkett bagged four scalps, conceding 59 runs in his quota of four overs.

A green-tinged pitch did not find favour with England captain Eoin Morgan but even on more placid surfaces the issue of how best to bat under grey skies, which can often set in all day in England, as many a cold fan knows, remains.

Yet it says something about England's current "white-ball" approach that Jonny Bairstow, their only batsman to make a fifty at Lord's, may not play at The Oval if all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes are fully fit.

Sentencing Set for Ex-Penn State Leaders
More than 10 individuals came to speak on behalf of the three men, including spouses, family, friends and business associates. A graduate coaching assistant told administrators that he saw Sandusky molesting a boy in a football team shower in 2001.

Imrul Kayes, on 19, was brilliantly caught by a diving Mark Wood at mid on but that brought Mushfiqur to the crease and he and Tamim gradually accelerated the scoring rate with crisp strokes all around the ground.

Tamim was unimpressed and umpires Rod Tucker and S Ravi intervened to calm tempers.

The century also came when he tapped Ali for a single to complete it off 124 balls.

Such was the nature of Root's innings is that he had found the boundary just six times on way to reaching three figures off 115 balls.

On Monday, across London at Lord's, England collapsed to 20 for six in five overs - the worst start in one-day global history - against the South Africa new-ball duo of Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell.

He has asserted that "global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax!" and, "I don't believe in climate change ". Meanwhile, if anyone is the leader of the beleaguered free world, it is German Chancellor Angela Merkel .

Both teams feature several survivors from Bangladesh´s 15-run shock win at Adelaide which condemned England to a woeful first-round exit from the last World Cup.

He cut and pulled with ferocity to to complete the 50 off 71 balls.

It was some encouragement for Bangladesh after a 2016/17 tour of New Zealand where they were beaten in all formats.

"If we want to boycott cricket with Pakistan then there should not be any business ties, no other sport should be played, there must be complete shut down", he said.

"But we know that we are also a better side; that we are a very improving side", he added.

But the best moment came during the post game interview, when an annoyed Durant wouldn't even answer the Rihanna question. By the end of the first quarter, the Warriors led 35-30, had 22 points in the paint to the Cavaliers' eight.

Bangladesh highlighted the issue in dramatic style by collapsing to 84 all out in reply to Champions Trophy title-holders India's 324 for seven in their final warm-up match at The Oval on Tuesday.
