England are continuing to break ground in the ICC Men’s World Cup, but Jonny Bairstow thinks their winning performances are founded on old-fashioned values.

Bairstow had the perfect view of both aspects against Bangladesh, partnering Jason Roy in an opening stand of 128 in 19.1 overs before taking the wicketkeeping gloves as Jofra Archer, Mark Wood and Liam Plunkett all pushed 140 kmh and above.

Victory by 106 runs was the perfect comeback after the loss to Pakistan on Monday, with England’s total of 386/6 their highest in World Cup history and Roy within five runs of equalling the highest individual tournament score for the country.

Although much has been made of their transformation in the 50-over format since the 2015 tournament, Bairstow does not believe that England have ripped up convention along the way.

“We were 15 off five overs so I would not say we were going off at the start,” he said. “We then caught up, but it wasn’t a case of running down the pitch and slogging. We played good cricket shots. Nothing really has changed with that mentality.

“Jason’s game has developed, that’s evolution with playing against different teams in different competitions around the world. Having opened the batting for a longer period for England, his confidence will be very high and it will be great for him to score 153 in the World Cup.

“At the other end I’m hoping I can score runs as well. It is good to have somebody at the other end who is destructive, but at the same time if you can work the partnership out, consistently grind out those hundred stands, it does set you up.”

Being an established Test wicket-keeper, Bairstow was unfazed when Jos Buttler’s hip injury forced England to hand over the gloves to him.

“There was a glare off the sightscreen which wasn’t very handy in the first few overs from Jofra’s end,” he said. “But to have three guys touching 90 miles an hour and Chris Woakes at 87 or 88 was good. All the lads are firing and that is strong for competition.

“You have seen that pace for a period of time with other nations: Morne Morkel and Kagiso Rabada for South Africa, Patrick Cummins and Mitchell Starc then Josh Hazlewood for Australia. But if you haven’t got the skill of execution, it doesn’t matter how fast you are.”

Bairstow is confident that Buttler will recover quickly and was satisfied with an improved team performance – while acknowledging that England can still improve.

“Everyone was saying our fielding [against Pakistan] wasn’t good, but that was just down to the standards we have set for the past two years,” he said. “It is good this time to put on a show, score over 380 and win by 106 runs.”
