World Cup 2019: From Jason Roy's blitzkrieg to Shakib's lone hand

Jason Roy's 153 overshadowed Shakib Al Hasan's century as England beat Bangladesh by 106 runs in Cardiff.

Jason Roy bludgeoned his way to a 121-ball 153 as England thrashed Bangladesh by 106 runs at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Roy's blitzkrieg innings was peppered with 14 fours and five sixes, and was the third hundred by an Englishman in this edition of the tournament. The other two -- Root and Buttler -- came against Pakistan in a losing cause. Roy was awarded the Man of The Match for his stellar contribution. Photo: GETTY IMAGES
Jos Buttler's 44-ball 64 powered England to an intimidating 386/6 at the end of 50 overs. His innings was studded with four sixes and two fours and helped the host rack up what was England's seventh consecutive 300-plus total in 2019. The keeper-batsman took a particular liking to Mossadek Hossain's bowling, hammering 19 off his one over. Photo: getty images
Mehidy Hasan went for 67 in his 10 overs but snapped up the wickets of Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan at key intervals in the match. Roy fell after a marauding 153 while Morgan was dismissed for nearly a run a ball 35. The off-spinner had the best economy-rate among all the bowlers. Photo: GETTY IMAGES
Shakib Al Hasan played a lone hand in an otherwise disappointing performance from the Bangladesh batsmen, striking a 119-ball 121. He hit 12 fours and a six to keep Bangladesh in the hunt but his dismissal off Ben Stokes nipped the chase in the bud. Photo: getty images
Jofra Archer's fiery spells at the start and in the death overs helped England seal an emphatic win. He returned impressive figures of three for 29 from 8.5 overs as the host side romped home effortlessly. Archer's spell came close on the heels of a rather disappointing show against Pakistan in the last match. Photo: getty images
