England vs Bangladesh, live cricket score and updates, Sophia Gardens Cardiff: Bangladesh have chosen to bowl against England in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 encounter in Cardiff. Bangladesh are unchanged while Liam Plunkett has replaced Moeen Ali in the side. Jason Roy blasted his 16th fifty and shared a wonderful opening stand with Jonny Bairstow as England started brilliantly. The Tigers condemned Eoin Morgan's men to a first-round exit at the 2015 edition with a 15-run victory in Adelaide. Toward that point there was no longer any way of hiding England's white-ball woes and, with a home World Cup up next, then England and Wales Cricket Board director Andrew Strauss was determined the national side's limited overs form had to improve. To that end, Peter Moores was sacked as coach, with Strauss bringing in experienced Australian Trevor Bayliss as his replacement. Since that debacle 'Down Under', England have risen to to the top of the one-day international rankings.
