Joe Root breezed to his 10th ODI hundred as title favourites England began their tournament campaign with an eight-wicket thrashing of Bangladesh in the Champions Trophy opener yesterday.

Besides Root 133 not out off 129, contributions from opener Alex Hales and captain Eoin Morgan helped England chase down the 306-run target in 47.2 overs.

It was the first time that 300 was successfully chased in the tournament history.

Put in to bat, Bangladesh did well to post 305 for six with opener Tamim Iqbal making his ninth ODI hundred.
