Will they be third time lucky? All the answers will be known after June 12 when the play-offs will be decided.
14:19 hrs IST: Bangladesh are indeed in a pool of death. Group A consists of teams like Australia, New Zealand and England and making it to the knock-outs will take some doing. However, such is the nature of the format that one loss by any team could throw the door open.

14:00 hrs IST: A warm welcome to the first match of the ICC Champions Trophy between England and Bangladesh from the Oval. The Mini World Cup is here and after two months of gruelling T20 action, it is time for some serious ODI cricket and what better way to start than the ICC Champions Trophy.
It remains to be seen whether Ben Stokes will be fully fit for bowling duty on Thursday, as he continues to battle a knee injury. Either way, the in-form all-rounder will definitely play and is likely to be high on confidence after hitting a century against South Africa in his last outing.
Bangladesh will look to opener Tamim Iqbal - a player who has made plenty of runs against England in the past - to put on a show at the top of the order.
LAST ODI MEETING:
Leg-spinner Adil Rashid claimed 4-43 as England won their last ODI with Bangladesh by four wickets in October to seal a 2-1 away series win.
“It certainly was a wake-up call in the fact that you need to be able to adapt in different circumstances.” - England captain Morgan on his side’s disappointing display versus South Africa at Lord’s on Monday in their final match ahead of the tournament.
“Yes, the last (warm-up) match (vs India) wasn’t that good, but I hope the batters will understand their role and not think too much about yesterday [Tuesday].” - Mashrafe Mortaza does not expect his side to be scarred by a score of 84 all out in Tuesday’s warm-up game against India.
