England win series 2-1

Birmingham: England beat Bangladesh by 144 runs to win the three-match one-day International series 2-1 on Monday.

Chasing 348, Bangladesh were all out for 203. Ravi Bopara took four wickets.

Earlier, Andrew Strauss and Jonathan Trott scored centuries as England has reached 347 for 7 from 50 overs in the third one-day International at Edgbaston.

Strauss, the England captain, struck 154 from 140 balls, including five sixes and 16 fours, while Trott scored 110 from 121 balls, with 12 fours.

According to statistician Mohandas Menon, Ravi Bopara’s 45 not out off 16 balls (strike rate 281.25), against Bangladesh, on Monday, was the third fastest knock in ODIs of 40 or more runs.

While Shahid Afridi’s 55 not out off 18 balls (SR 305.55) versus the Netherlands in 2002 leads the chart, Brendon Mccullum’s 80 not out off 28 balls (SR 285.71) against Bangladesh in 2007 lies second.

Strauss and Trott produced highest partnership in England’s ODI history, surpassing the 226 that Strauss and Flintoff against the Windies in 2004. (agencies)
