Champions Trophy: England and Bangladesh aim to banish batting blues

Making his decision Razzaq hasn’t played for Pakistan for nearly four years and believes it is now too late to earn an international recall

That should install the Proteas as the outright favorites but it's been a long and painful trophy drought since winning their only piece of ICC silverware at the inaugural Champions Trophy in 1998: Four semifinal defeats in the Champions Trophy to go alongside four semifinal losses in the Cricket World Cups.

England trio Jason Roy, Alex Hales and Ben Stokes will be among the players from around the world pioneering new bat sensors during the upcoming Champions Trophy, it was announced Tuesday.

"I think we can expect to see more of what we have been seeing over the previous year from South Africa in this tournament - a fearless brand of cricket", he added.

The seven-wicket win marked a memorable end to the series for both sides - for South Africa, a sigh of relief, while England was humbled and reminded of the challenge it faces if it is to succeed on home soil. Certainly if Bangladesh are in the field at 1030 and still available at anything around 7/2 they will be worthy of support.

"So whatever we do first against England, we need to start well and that's what we are focusing on".

Indian cricket viewers can watch the match on Doordarshan, Star Sports 1, Star Sports 3, Star Sports HD1 and Star Sports HD3 while Hotstar will have Australia vs New Zealand live streaming online.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has set out to digitise the world of cricket after selecting Intel to roll out drone technology, connected cricket bats and virtual reality at the 2017 Champions Trophy one-day international (ODI) series. Over the a year ago, though, he has kicked on.

'You can embrace technology without losing that tradition and we faced the same viewpoints when we first considered using technology in umpiring, ' he said.

Duterte has long expressed his admiration for Xi and tried to played down the conflict since assuming office a year ago. However, Duterte said Xi responded as, "We're friends, we don't want to quarrel with you".

There are risks here, of course.

"Whoever plays in the best XI is obviously there for a reason and whoever's missing out is a bit, well, not stiff because who do you drop out of that line-up?"

While Shami was outstanding against New Zealand, considering how well Umesh has bowled of late, the latter might just get the nod.

"India on current form have the edge over Pakistan, I feel".

"If we want our players to play cagily or without freedom, yes, we would change things and probably half of us wouldn't be here".

Hussain said Roy, going through a run drought that has yielded four single figure scores in his last five one-day worldwide innings, might gain from the new system.

He's 4/1 to be top England bowler here, but Stan James offer 8/1 in the top match bowler and that looks an even better shout - especially if England do wind up chasing a small total to restrict the opportunities for the likes of Mustafizur Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan.
