Bangladesh threatened the same punishment in its first one-day worldwide on English soil in seven years by producing its highest score against England, and the eighth-best total in trophy history, 40 runs more than its previous best.
It was the English side that opted to ball first after winning the toss at the Oval in the opening match of ICC Champions Trophy 2017. The next three overs were rather good for Bangladesh side as no boundary was scored.
Meanwhile Root suffered a calf injury while batting.
After being set a competitive target of 306, England lost their opener, Jason Roy, as early as in the third over.
The openers negotiated the powerplay safely, scoring 36 runs off the first 10 overs.
Instead, he said he wanted that balance to the attack because of the pitch, and because Bangladesh play spin better than seam.
Alex Hales has backed his opening teammate Jason Roy to fight his way out of a form slump after another single-figure score by the struggling England batsman. Shakib Al Hasan only lasted eight balls as he holed out to Stokes off Ball for just ten. Besides, skipper Mashrafe Mortaza allowed the game to drift for long periods. As a score in the mid-300s looked possible, the pair fell in consecutive deliveries and Sabbir Rahman's 15-ball 24 dragged them to 305-6.
Mushfiqur then punished Ball for dropping short by cutting him to the third man boundary. But Hales and Root were able to steady the England ship.
Adding, "To celebrate the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, we're inviting everyone to tap/click and take a swing at our pocket-size game!We know that cricket is loved worldwide, so we wanted to make sure our Doodle works for everyone, including those on slower mobile networks".
Here, he made only one from eight deliveries, but again received the support of his captain.
Tamim had made a decision to cut loose as he was hitting boundaries one after another and if possible for a maximum whenever he was getting any opportunity. "We should have at least scored 320, and we would have done that if we batted properly, but we couldn't". And in both the games, India managed to bundle out the opposition inside 40 overs.
But Hales and Root were serene as they piled on 159 runs together, Root's nasty stumble on the pull shot their only scare until Hales went after Sabbir Rahman and picked out replacement fielder Sunzamul Islam with a skewed sweep shot. He took 27 balls to get from 80 to 100, hitting just one boundary.
Tamim greeted the start of the last 10 overs with a six over long-on off Moeen before falling in the 45th to Plunkett, when he skied a catch to wicketkeeper Jos Buttler to end Bangladesh's highest ODI partnership outside Asia, beating Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah's 141, also against England that day in Adelaide two years ago.
Although Bangladesh have only set a 280-plus target twice outside Asia, it was hard to escape the feeling that their Tamim Iqbal-inspired total of 305 was ultimately about 20 or 30 runs light of really challenging England, and so it proved.
