Cricket's ICC Champions Trophy marked by Google's latest Doodle

Bangladesh highlighted the issue of under-performing openers in dramatic style by collapsing to 84 all out in reply to Champions Trophy title-holders India's 324 for seven in their final warm-up match at the Oval on Tuesday. "We'll try to live up to those expectations".

It is for the first time that West Indies did not qualify to play in the ICC Champions Trophy.

"I think England will feel more pressure than us, because they want the trophy in a home tournament".

His struggles were brought into sharper focus by Hales and Joe Root combining after Roy's departure for a second-wicket stand of 159 to help England to an eight-wicket win in Group A.

He said: "After Tamim got out, then Mushfiqur, the next ball, that was the problem for us".

England's 308 for two is the highest run chase in the 19-year-history of the Champions Trophy, beating Sri Lanka's 297 for three against the hosts on the same ground in 2013.

A touch player in an England top order replete with power hitters, Root's unbeaten 133 was a characteristically majestic innings by a batsman nearly incapable of playing an ugly shot. "I hope that I am picked, but that is up to the team management so let's see how this goes", quoted Sohail as saying.

"The thing is that we all know that on a given day we can beat anybody".

"I think we can expect to see more of what we have been seeing over the a year ago from South Africa in this tournament - a courageous brand of cricket", concluded the Proteas skipper. Taskin Ahmed is also the lead player of the team, so he could also be considered in the Playing XI.

This was both sides' opening match in Group A of a tournament featuring the world's top eight ODI teams.

Morgan had won the toss in sunny conditions and asked Bangladesh to bat, but Tamim and Soumya Sarkar carefully added 56 for the first wicket before the latter was caught on the cover point boundary for 28.

Indeed, Google says the game is its "smallest interactive Doodle ever" and created to make sure it "works for everyone, including those on slower mobile networks".

"But ... batting-wise we did well in [this month's tri-series in] Ireland".

"First match we made a decision to go with eight batters, but we have to think about it".
