England wins toss, bowls against Bangladesh in World Cup

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) -- England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and sent Bangladesh in to bat in a must-win Cricket World Cup Pool A match at the Adelaide Oval on Monday.

England made two changes to the starting lineup that lost to Sri Lanka by nine wickets last week, bringing in pace bowling allrounder Alex Hales to replace Gary Ballance, while Chris Jordan comes in for fellow quick Steven Finn.

For Bangladesh, Imral Kayes will open the batting in place of injured Anamul Haque, while Arafat Sunny replaces Nasir Hossain in the bowling attack.

England, which has lost three of its first four games, must beat Bangladesh and then Afghanistan to have any chance of advancing. A win for Bangladesh would secure it a spot in the quarterfinals for the first time.
