Australia earned a single point from the first match of their campaign against New Zealand which had to be abandoned due to rain. The Australian pacers had given a good account of themselves against the Kiwis, particularly Josh Hazlewood who had clinched a six-wicket haul.

A brilliant batting display helped England beat Bangladesh by eight wickets in Group A match of the Champions Trophy cricket tournament at the Kennington Oval on Thursday.

Chasing a challenging total of 306, Alex Hales (95) and Joe Root (133 not out) led from the front to chase down the target after England started off on a poor note, losing opener Jason Roy (1) in the third over with just six runs on the board.

Incoming batsman Root then joined Hales and added 159 runs for the second wicket in 25.3 overs before Hales was dismissed by Sabbir Rahman. The 28-year-old batsman, who slammed 11 boundaries and two sixes, was caught at deep mid-wicket by substitute fielder Sunzamul Islam.

Bangladesh will be eyeing their first away series win when they take on Sri Lanka in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) cricket match at the Sinhalese Sports Club here on Saturday.

It all fell in place for Bangladesh in the first ODI and the series could have looked very different if rain hadn't intervened midway through the second game. Sri Lanka, after opting to bat first, put up 311 riding on Kusal Mendis's 102 and an innings of 65 from the stand-in skipper Upul Tharanga.
