    Roy smashes into the umpire while bringing up his century

    England notched up their highest World Cup total and secured a 106 run victory against Bangladesh today.

    Batting first England made 386-6, with Jason Roy’s making 153, the second-best score by an England batsman in the competition.

    Half centuries were also compiled by Jonny Bairstow who made 51 and Jos Buttler with 64.

    In reply, Shakib Al Hasan made 121, an innings that made him the tournament’s leading runscorer.

    But the required rate was climbed and Bangladesh were bowled out for 280, with Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes each taking three wickets a piece.

    England now join Australia and New Zealand at the top of the table on four points.

    They will now wait for their next game, against West Indies in Southampton on Friday.
