England clinch series

England clinch series

The touring side, buoyed by their first ever win over England on Saturday, won the toss but Strauss smashed 154 to lift the hosts to a huge total of 347 for seven and they bowled out Bangladesh for 203 to clinch the series 2-1.

Strauss and Jonathan Trott, who made 110, shared a second-wicket stand of 250, and a sparkling unbeaten 45 off 16 balls by Ravi Bopara powered his side to their third largest score in 50-over cricket.

Bangladesh went for their shots from the start but they lost wickets at regular intervals.
Only an eighth-wicket partnership of 56 between Mahmudullah and Abdur Razzak took Bangladesh past 200.

Bopara was England's most successful bowler with figures of four for 38.
