Morgan praises Roy after match-winning hundred
England cruised to a 106-run win against Bangladesh in Cardiff and their captain, Eoin Morgan, was full of praise for his team as they bounced back from their loss to Pakistan. The game started off with England being put into bat and the openers, Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy, put on a 128-run stand. "Today that opening stand really did lay a solid platform," said Morgan. "I don't think it was that easy up front. I don't think the ball came on to bat a lot. The first four or five overs proved that; we didn't really go anywhere. We were trying to score runs, but we didn't go anywhere. "I thought Jason and Jonny were outstanding. They assessed conditions well. They waited for the bad ball. Waited for themselves to impose themselves in the innings, and 128 is a considerable standard."
