Bangladesh thrashed Pakistan by eight wickets to complete a 3-0 one-day international series whitewash.

Chasing 251 for victory in Mirpur, the home side reached their target with more than 11 overs to spare thanks to an unbeaten century by Soumya Sarkar.

The Tigers had earlier bowled Pakistan out for 250, despite Azhar Ali's 101.

Bangladesh, who reached the World Cup quarter-finals at the expense of England, have never before whitewashed an Asian Test-playing nation.
