England to bowl first in Trophy opener

England is the bookies' favorite for the trophy, but Bangladesh has beaten England at the last two Cricket World Cups.

The fall of Hales brought in Eoin Morgan (75 not out), who, along with Root, then continued the pace and added 143 runs to chase down the the highest target in the Champions Trophy with 16 balls remaining. There will be some swing early on, we need to put up a good score on the board. He along with skipper Mushfiqur Rahim (79) added 166 runs in 25.1 overs to hand a crucial advantage to the visitors.

After pre-match doubts over Stokes, who bowled seven overs and took England's first wicket, Chris Woakes became the latest injury-victim.

The two side last faced each other in an worldwide ODI tournament was at the 2015 World Cup where Bangladesh ended their WC dream and continued their run of never having won a global one-day title. Adil Rashid also will give a pressure to the Bangladesh batting along with Liam Plunkett.

Bangladesh have also won back-to-back ODI games (Ireland and New Zealand) ahead of this encounter with England, and if they manage to claim victory in this match, it'll be the first time they've won three in a row outside of Bangladesh since 2009 (five in succession).

Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali has insisted his side will treat their Champions Trophy opener against title-holders India in Birmingham on Sunday as "just another game".

Rubel Hossain is the third seamer in the team.
