London [UK] | June 1, 2017 12:01:13 AM IST
Hosts England will take on Bangladesh in the Champions Trophy2017 opener at the Oval here on Thursday.

Going into the match, Bangladesh would be brimming with confidence as they have won four of their last seven ODI games versus England.

Here are some facts about the two sides:

Bangladesh have won four of their last seven ODI games versus England; having previously lost all 12 played against England immediately before this current run.

England have won 79 percent of their ODI encounters with Bangladesh (15 of 19); of the sides competing in the Champions Trophy, only New Zealand (70 percent) have a lower win percentage against them.

England have won eight of their last nine ODI matches; that defeat coming in a dead rubber against South Africa, their most recent outing.

England come into this tournament having won six of their last seven ODI series, including the last three in a row.

Bangladesh have won back-to-back ODI games (Ireland and New Zealand) ahead of this encounter with England; if they claim victory in this match, it''ll be the first time they''ve won three in a row outside of Bangladesh since 2009 (five in succession).

England have registered victories in eight of their last 10 ODI matches at the Oval; also, they claimed a 10-wicket win in the only previous such encounter against Bangladesh at the famous venue (June 2005).

Of the teams involved in this edition of the competition, England and Bangladesh are two of three sides yet to win the Champions Trophy (Pakistan); England twice finishing as runners-up whilst Bangladesh are yet to feature in a final.

Bangladesh are appearing in the Champions Trophy group stage for the first time since 2004; England have progressed beyond the group stage in three of their last four attempts.
