Jason Roy ton steers England to victory in 2nd Bangladesh ODI




Jason Roy’s century and Sam Curran’s all-round performance helped England beat Bangladesh by 132 runs in the second one-day international in Dhaka on Friday.

The hosts never recovered from the loss despite veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan scoring 58.

Shakib and captain Tamim Iqbal shared a 79-run stand for the fourth wicket before Moeen Ali dismissed Tamim for 35 to end their resistance. Shakib was caught by Curran at extra cover on Rashid’s ball.

Bangladesh, who were playing their 100th ODI at Mirpur, elected to bowl first and kept the tourists in check early on.

Top-order batsmen Phil Salt (7), James Vince (5) and debutant centurion Dawid Malan (11) were all dismissed cheaply. But Roy and captain Butler shared a 109-run partnership for the fourth wicket to give England a lift.
