7.56 pm: A huge presentation comes to an end, and the dust begins to settle on this ODI series. Thank you for all your support, and we’ll be back soon for the first of three T20 matches on Thursday, 9 March. Me, Allen, Chandan, Miller, Sudarshanan and Isam, goodbye for now.
Buttler collects the trophy from Nazmul Hasan Papon. Shaking hands with various dignitaries before going off to celebrate with his team-mates. It was his first bilateral ODI series win after taking over as full-time captain last summer.
tamim iqbal Is leading. “We were really looking forward to this game. We wanted to finish on a high. Still disappointed as we lost the series. The first game was a killer. Praise be to England and the way they played. Adil Bhai has been brilliant throughout. The series. Not the best today, we should have scored 270-280. But the bowling effort was brilliant. [WC prep?] There is still a lot of room for improvement. We are a good team in ODIs but when we go abroad and the conditions are different, we have to try and do better. [T20Is?] Some exciting players are coming. I wish them all the best.”
adil rasheed Player of the series. It felt good throughout the series, not just me but I felt we bowled well as a collective unit in these conditions. [Rehan?] There’s something special about him. Hopefully, he will develop his game and get better as time goes on.”
shakib al hassan Err, Tiger of the match. He is also the Player of the Match, which gives him another novelty check from the suit. “We’ve been very good in the last five to seven years at home. We showed a lot of character. We could have rolled and lost three-nil but we fought till the end and luckily we got the win. We thought we were 20- “We were 30 runs short but our bowlers talked about stepping up and doing the job for the team. We expect our top-order players to score centuries, not fifties.”
Presentation time. jos buttler First of all. “We were desperate to win the game today, but of course we are still happy to win the series. We started off great, but Bangladesh put up a really good fight.” [Curran’s promotion?] This was a good opportunity for Sam to move up the order. He is a man with huge potential with the bat. [World Cup prep?] We got out of this tour exactly what we wanted. We wanted to play on those kind of wickets. It’s great for us to challenge ourselves in these situations, the situations that we find most difficult. [T20Is?] We look forward to the games. It’s a format we really enjoy.”
7.29 pm: A confidence-boosting, consolation win for Bangladesh, avoiding a series whitewash with an impressive all-round performance. Shakib Al Hasan was the star as he often is, making a vital 75 before taking four wickets to propel England’s run chase as Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim and Ebadat Hossain all impressed. England already had some experimentation with the series in the bag, but will be disappointed to score anything less than par on a slow surface.
Mustafa Moudi: “I wish Shakib had completed his century with the bat so that he could celebrate the triple – POTM award, 300 wickets and 7000 ODI runs in a single day!!”
Abyaz: “An incredible fighting display by Bangladesh. Amazing performance by Abadot and Shakib! The champions come back from the roar of the tigers!!!”
Mustafizur Rahman to Vox, Outside, And there’s the wicket of Fizz! Bangladesh win by 50 runs Good length ball, going across to the right hander. Woakes shaped to drive through mid-on and slightly edged through the first shot, going back to the right of the bowler. Mustafizur fumbled it at the first attempt but had enough composure to hold onto the second as the ball looped.
Fizz is back, still looking for his first wicket of the series.
Sampath Bandarupalli: “This is the fourth time that Shakib Al Hasan has scored a fifty-plus and taken four wickets in a single ODI. Both Shahid Afridi and Chris Gayle have achieved this double on three occasions in ODIs.”
Adil: “Vintage Shakib Performance”
