As Virat Kohli and his men gear up for the Champions Trophy opener against Pakistan in Birmingham this weekend, former batting ace VVS Laxman believes the defending champions' will take a lot of confidence from the wins against New Zealand and Bangladesh in the warm-up games this week.
England came into this tournament featuring the world´s top eight ODI sides having made huge strides in white-ball cricket in the past two years.
"Alex Hales isn't going to score slowly". The Tigers have won four of their last seven encounters with England. After Bangladesh had beaten England by five runs in Bristol 2010, the scenario changed. Morné Morkel made an unimpressive return to the 50-over game in the recent match played against England at Lord's. Numerous players in the current Proteas side have experienced more than their fair share of disappointments.
Joe Root was one of England's injury victims but also provided the career-best hundred which ensured they began their Champions Trophy campaign with an emphatic victory against Bangladesh at The Oval.

In the 22 ODIs he has played for Pakistan, Haris has scored 774 runs at an average of 43 with a strike rate of 82.86. The weather is set fair though and it should be a high-scoring game.
"The decision will remain the same throughout the tournament", he said.
The first game between England and Bangladesh at the Oval today will get the eighth edition of the tournament under way. Previous England setups may have been swayed by the ebullient form of Jonny Bairstow, but the gimlet-eyed Morgan is in no mood to twist.
Medium pacer Plunkett was the pick of the bowlers for England, taking four wickets in his 10 overs and conceding 59 runs.
Through their performances in the last week, Rubel Hossain and Mehedi have, in all likelihood, won individual battles ahead of Taskin Ahmed and Sunzamul Islam for the third seamer and second spinner slots.
England are planning on the basis Stokes will be able to bowl at least a handful of overs against Bangladesh - while Morgan confirmed Chris Woakes is fully fit again after his thigh niggle.
