West Indies ‘just another game’ for England’s Jofra Archer

World Cup 2019 England Look To Bounce Back After A Setback Against Pakistan

England will look to get back on winning ways against Bangladesh at Cardiff

West Indies boss Reifer expects England's Barbados-born Archer to be amped up for Friday's World Cup clash.

It was the third time the all-rounder, who also opened the bowling with his left-arm spin in Cardiff on Saturday, had passed fifty in as many innings this tournament after being promoted from number five to number three.

But Plunkett's ability to bowl back-of-a-length cutters may prove especially valuable given the proportions of the Cardiff ground, with England understood to be contemplating an attack that includes five seamers and Moeen Ali as the only frontline spinner. "We are here to entertain so the players come out and entertain us". We got a taste of that on the recent Caribbean tour and one of the things we spoke about in St Lucia - when we were bowled out for 113 - was that the pitch had tennis-ball bounce and if we come up against it again we will play some smarter cricket.

Roy scored a 121-ball 153 and powered England to post 386 for six, leaving Bangladesh needing to surpass Ireland's 329-7 against England in 2011, the highest score by any team batting second to win a World Cup match.

"Obviously they are the two quickest bowlers in this World Cup, so I knew that it's going to be tough, but I felt very happy with the way I played them".

England's next group-stage match is against the West Indies in Southampton on Friday.

"We never know when the rain is going to come".

"He obviously had the pace [to play worldwide cricket]". So it doesn't matter who we play. We are looking forward to that game. "After they lost the first three games their confidence as a team will be a bit low, so we wanted to take a big advantage of that".

"Jonny and I have been doing pretty well together over the last few years so we've got not too much to worry about", man-of-the-match Roy said.

"Games where we have been defeated heavily have been the ones where we learned the most". Looking at the weather forecast, it was 90 percent rain today and they had rain over the last couple of days here as well.

"It goes back to focusing on ourselves and our strengths and how we can get the best out of ourselves".

The West Indies have had plenty of choice in the pace department, with skipper Jason Holder working with Sheldon Cottrell, Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas and Carlos Brathwaite to bounce out Pakistan for 105 and then cause defending champions Australia all kinds of trouble early before slipping to a 15-run loss.

This World Cup is yet to turn two weeks and only 14 games have been completed so far.

The few previous tournaments/series that took place before this - at the worldwide and franchise level - cemented the belief even more.
