TYMAL Mills was the man in form for England as they beat Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup in Abu Dhabi.

The Sussex bowler took an impressive three wickets for only 27 runs as Bangladesh fell for 124 at the end of their innings, leaving England needing 125 to win.

Mills, who had taken two wickets against the West Indies on Saturday, continued his remarkable return to international cricket.

His first wicket he ran out Afif Hossain. More conventionally the bowler did displace three batsmen with the ball, Nural Hasan and Mehidy Hasan both caught of off Mills bowling.

Mills then finished the innings lighting up the stumps of Mustafizur Rahman.

When England took to the wicket to bat they showed their difference in quality to the Bangladeshi's.

Jason Roy’s innings in his 50th T20, where he reached his fifty off just 33 balls, contained five fours and three sixes, and while he was dismissed with 13 more still required, Dawid Malan and Jonny Bairstow saw England over the line.

This was the first T20 between the teams but England needed no reminders of Bangladesh’s capacity to spring a surprise in global tournaments after the Tigers eliminated Eoin Morgan’s side at the 2015 50-over World Cup.

But there was rarely any sense of an England loss in the Gulf on Wednesday as they allowed Bangladesh few occasions to cut loose, with the economical Chris Woakes taking one for 12 while Liam Livingstone collected two key wickets.

England, the number one ranked side in the world, unsurprisingly opted for an unchanged line-up in this Super 12s contest after their impressive win over the Windies, and were asked to bowl first after losing the toss.
