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.
