Cardiff, June 13: On the eve of their ICC Champions Trophy semi-fil match against Pakistan here on Wednesday, England skipper Eoin Morgan hinted at opting for Jonny Bairstow to open the innings in place of an out-of-touch Jason Roy. Roy, who has averaged 6.37 from eight One-day Intertiol (ODI) innings so far this season, with six single-figure scores, could lose his place in the playing XI despite Bairstow's inexperience of opening the batting.

"There's a chance that we could make a change," he said, "obviously we don't announce the team until the toss -- but there's a chance there could be a change. I mentioned after the last game that we're getting to the business end of the tourment and we need to produce results, so it's important that we get what we feel is our best XI to win the tourment out tomorrow in order to win the game," Morgan was cited by espncricinfo as telling media persons.
