Eng­land limit Bangladesh to 277 in crunch ODI

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

LEG spin­ner Adil Rashid (pix) claimed an ODI ca­reer best four for 43 as Eng­land re­stricted Bangladesh to 277-6 in the se­ries de­cider one-day in­ter­na­tional in Chit­tagong yes­ter­day. Rashid took full ad­van­tage of a turn­ing wicket which re­mained un­der cover for two days due to rain and picked up his sec­ond four-wicket-haul in the fi­nal game of a three-match se­ries which is cur­rently tied 1-1. The 28-year-old York­shire­man de­railed Bangladesh’s in­nings with reg­u­lar strikes in his un­bro­ken 10 overs stretch af­ter Tamim Iqbal and Im­rul Kayes put on 80 runs in the open­ing stand. Mush­fiqur Rahim top-scored for the home side with an un­beaten 67 while Sab­bir Rah­man (49), Kayes (46), Iqbal (45) and Mosad­dek Hos­sain (38 not out) also con­trib­uted to what should be a com­pet­i­tive to­tal. Ben Stokes se­cured the first break­through for Eng­land when he had Kayes caught by sub­sti­tute fielder Liam Daw­son at square leg. Lo­cal boy Iqbal be­came the first Bangladeshi to score 5,000 ODI runs by pulling Chris Woakes for a mid-wicket bound­ary. But he fell the next over when Rashid de­ceived him with a goo­gly and James Vince took the catch at short mid-wicket.
