England are back to the winning ways by beating Bangladesh by 106 runs after losing to Pakistan by 14 runs in their second game. The major issue that is going in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is the injury scare of players as some key players are injured in respective sides.

The hosts, England are also not exceptional in this issue. Their wicket keeper Jos Buttler had some problems around his hip region during the game against Bangladesh. As a precautionary measure he was taken off the field during Bangladesh innings and Jonny Bairstow did the glove worl for England.
