Joe Root's career-best unbeaten 133 saw England to an eight-wicket win over Bangladesh in the opening match of the 2017 Champions Trophy at the Oval on Thursday.

There was also some sublime batting from Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan, but Root's injury, making more than half of his runs with a calf problem, is not even England's greatest concern.

"That worked out today, thrilled to bits to get off to a good start", said Root after England chased down 305 for six in 47.2 overs.

Bangladesh bowlers have not much to take back from the game as Mashrafe Mortaza and Shabbir Rahman could manage to pick one wicket each of the English batting. He became the third player to score 10 or more hundreds for England after Marcus Trescothick (12) and Eoin Morgan (10).

Root, hobbling between the wickets, manoeuvred the ball around calmly and he and Morgan were always in control of the chase in an unbroken partnership of 143.

That was Bangladesh's highest stand in a one-day worldwide outside of Asia, surpassing the 141 put on by Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah when the Tigers knocked England out of the 2015 World Cup with a dramatic 15-run win in Adelaide. The two stitched a partnership of 166 runs for the third wicket, which is the highest partnership for any wicket in the Champions Trophy. In his 34-ball knock, the 24-year-old batsman slammed four boundaries and one six. 10 and 11 - for his highest ODI score, off 129 balls.

Abedi's family remained a focus, too, with a brother in England, his father and another brother in Libya among those detained. Police say they have "got our hands around" a large part of the network connected to Manchester Arena bombing Salman Abedi .

Victory came at a price, though, for the bookies' title favourite.

Bangladesh are led by Mashrafe Mortaza, with allrounder Shakib-al-Hasan and Mustafizur Rahmn looming as key players as they look to replicate their 2015 World Cup upset.

That was the cue for Tamim and the diminutive Mushfiqur to take charge.

Morgan picked up where Hales left off, reaching 50 from 45 deliveries, though Bangladesh were furious he was not given out when Tamim flung himself forward at long-on to take what he believed was a fair catch. Their departures stalled Bangladesh just when it needed to be surging.

Plunkett added Sabbir Rahman's wicket in the last over to finish with a team-best 4-59. Group A consist of Australia, New Zealand, Bangladesh and England while Group B has India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa.

Bangladesh has the Australians on Monday.
