Rob Handley has two picks for the Champions Trophy opener
England v Bangladesh, 10:30am Sky Sports 1
The hosts kick the tournament off against Bangladesh at The Oval, a game that every nation will be targeting as easy points in the quest to progress from the group stage. Surrey’s home ground tends to produce flat batting decks and this being a big tournament, expect an absolute belter of a track in South London.
Jason Roy plies his trade for Surrey on the domestic scene so expect him to flourish against a Tigers attack, who are unlikely to worry the England line up in these conditions. The opener is a due a big score and he’s my pick to top the England batting, though anyone of England’s top three could easily have made the cut.
