  5. ‘We have to play hard’

    Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza: “We are very much confident. We have to play well and play hard.”

  6. ‘You have to remain calm’

    South Africa captain Faf du Plessis: “We’re playing an extra seamer today for extra pace so as normal it’s about making the most of the first 15 overs and causing Bangladesh some problems.

    “We’ve got to learn from the previous game. We did well to restrict England to just over 300 and we were only one partnership away from really troubling England.

    “You have to remind yourself to stay calm. Obviously you want to win your first game but it’s a long tournament and we’ve got to remind ourselves that we played the favourites.”

  9. What happened yesterday?

    Afghanistan looked like they would get skittled for not much over 100 after falling for 77-5 against Australia before some late-order hitting took them to 207 all out.

    The Aussies made fairly easy work of the reply, winning by seven wickets as Aaron Finch hit 66 and David Warner struck an unbeaten 89.

    And yes Warner and Steve Smith were booed.
