LONDON — It's Day 10 at the Cricket World Cup and there's already some pressure on host nation England heading into its group game against Bangladesh in windy Cardiff.

The pre-tournament favorite was jolted by a surprise loss to Pakistan in its second match, and another defeat to Bangladesh would leave it in early trouble.

Bangladesh has beaten the English at the last two World Cups, with the loss at the 2015 World Cup eliminating them in the group stage.

Like England, Bangladesh has won one and lost one of its first two games.

After the Pakistan-Sri Lanka match was washed out on Friday without a ball being bowled, conditions in the Welsh capital are dry but gusty.

Later, undefeated New Zealand meets winless Afghanistan in Taunton.
