Woakes injury a concern for England, says Morgan

Irfan Pahan feels Mohammed Shami is the key to India's success in Champions Trophy 2017

Earlier, Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal stroked a serene century and along with Mushfiqur Rahim seemed to be taking the Tigers to a score above 330 after England skipper Eoin Morgan chose to field first.

The de Villiers-led side slumped to a 1-2 defeat to England in the three-match ODI series after two closes match went the hosts' way while they were humbled in the final game.

Morgan said Woakes would be a big loss if he can't play, but also praised his other bowlers for making up for his absence.

England's pursuit didn't get off to a great start with Jason Roy - short of runs recently - holing out to short fine leg for just 1.

England captain Eoin Morgan said in his eve-of-tournament news conference that Roy will "definitely play" in the Champions Trophy, that his opening partnership with fellow big hitter Alex Hales was a vital part of a team that has grown in stature in its ODI renaissance since the 2015 Cricket World Cup.

But worryingly for England, bidding to win their first major International Cricket Council ODI trophy, paceman Chris Woakes bowled just two overs before suffering a potentially tournament-ending left side strain. "If we want our players to play cagey or without freedom, yes, we would change things and probably half of us wouldn't be here", Morgan said. When one of your main bowlers can only bowl two overs, it's asking a lot of the rest of the team to be able to stem the flow.

"We need more variety in our attack".

The only disappointment in an otherwise impressive England innings was when opener Jason Roy fell for one on his Surrey home ground.

"Ten, 15 runs more would have been ideal", Tamim said.

"I have never seen a team win a global tournament playing defensively".

Mushfiqur Rahim played a glorious shot in the twenty second over as the score also entered into triple for Bangladesh side.

But Morgan, who gave Roy a resounding vote of confidence in his pre-match news conference, made it clear he would keep his place for England's next Group A fixture against New Zealand in Cardiff on Tuesday.

When England come up against stronger sides, they won't ease up in the final overs like Bangladesh did here. "It was quite smart, bowling a slower ball from the opening bowler and fearless".

Shakib Al Hasan scored two boundaries of the 46th over bowled by Wood however got out after scoring a quick innings of 10 runs of the bowling of Ball. "We (still) believe in him".

With Mushfiqur settling in, Tamim took on the task of keeping the scoreboard moving and announced his ambitions with an inside-out six over cover off Ali in the 25th over, and followed it up with back-to-back boundaries in Plunkett's next over. "We knew if one of the top four were not out we would be in a good position".
