'An absorbing series'

Charles Dagnall

BBC Radio 5 live

A thrilling end to what has been an absorbing one-day series.

It has been keenly contested, with plenty of fiery moments but some great skill on show from both teams.

Bayliss reaction

Trevor Bayliss on whether Eoin Morgan and Alex Hales will come straight back into the side? "I would like to think so. Morgan has been fantastic for the team and Hales has four centuries this year. The best pressure is from within. It will keep everyone on their toes. There is no reason why some of these one-day guys can't make it in the Test team."

Jones: Bumped into @flintoff11 in Keele services (southbound) one early February morning, he bought wine gums I recall.

Bayliss reaction

More from Trevor Bayliss: "Both Duckett and Billings have been set up well with the Lions. It gives them confidence coming into a confident group. Their performance shows that.

"Billings has a good head on his shoulders. He can go harder as well. The future looks bright for him. Duckett is also a power player. I suppose we are experimenting going forward and some of those are paying dividends.

"Stokes in this series has shown he is playing smarter cricket as we go forward. We know what Jos can do with the bat but the way he captained the team is a credit to him."

Bayliss reaction

England coach Trevor Bayliss on Sky Sports: "Bangladesh are putting together a good young team and are difficult to beat on home turf but we played some good cricket. Our two most inexperienced batters top-scored and batted very, very well. I am a bit disappointed with some of the dismissals in the middle of the innings but for a young team to come away with a win is fantastic."

1987 - @englandcricket have claimed back-to-back bilateral ODI series victories in Asia for the 1st time since 1987. Revolution.

'This team is really exciting'

England all-rounder Ben Stokes on the vice-captaincy: "Me and Jos work quite well. We're quite aggressive in how we want to play our cricket, not just with the bat and the ball, but with field placings.

"It's really exciting. The team we have had together for the last 18 months have been playing unbelievable cricket. If we carry on like this we'll achieve our target of being world number one."

'It's a pleasure to captain this side'

England captain Jos Buttler: "It's a great group to captain. We're always trying to push the boundaries and there are some really skilled, talented lads in that group, so it's pleasure to do it.

"Our biggest goal is trying to become number one in the world. If we want to become that, you've got to come away and win series like these in tough conditions."

'We've stood up as a side'

England captain Jos Buttler: "In tough conditions, physically and mentally, we've stood up as a young side, and to come away with a series win is just reward for that.

"Sam Billings and James Vince set up the run chase. We could have won that by seven or eight wickets. It's great to learn when you're winning as well as when you're losing.

"Sam Billings has been around the group for a long time - he's been knocking on the door, and we asked him to open today. He played fantastically. credit to him. Ben Duckett has played well in his debut series. 

"Ben Stokes showed great leadership to take the onus on and be the man there at the end."

Jonathan Palmer: At a wedding I once randomly chatted on the phone to Courtney Walsh. Asked if he would like to babysit when in London. He said no.

Nick Ilkiw: When I worked at GAME Michael Vaughan came in to buy Mario Kart. We'd sold out so he left empty-handed.

Man of the series

England all-rounder Ben Stokes, man of the series: "We left it open after the second match but we took it right down to the end and we won quite comfortably in the end today."

On his award: "Things like these are small in what we want accomplish as a team. Hopefully this is a step forward and hopefully this will put us in good stead for the Tests. It's a starting point for me, and hopefully take it on to India and put in some performances there."

Captain's view

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza: "It was a decent total but the spinners couldn't get it done because of the dew. The toss was the real factor. England's bowlers got turn. Our spinners had a lot of dew so couldn't turn the ball.

"Until the end we fought it out. But England were too good. They played really well. All credit to England. 

"We played really well this series. Tamim came back into form. Overall we have played well but the luck was not with us."

little villan: That was close, forget the negatives, that was the highest run chase here in a second innings. Brilliant.

Man of the match

Man of the match Adil Rashid: "It was alright. It came out OK today. It was good for the spinners. We stuck to our guns and restricted them.

"Sometimes the bad balls get the wickets. I was trying to take wickets and be confident. I wanted to have a positive mindset and whatever happens on the day happens

"There is a log way to go until the Tests. Plenty of practice to do. I am looking forward to it."

'Overall an excellent win'

Charles Dagnall

BBC Radio 5 live

England will take heart that Ben Duckett and makeshift opener Sam Billings both scored half-centuries today - remember England were missing Alex Hales, Jason Roy, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan.

But Ben Stokes batted with great maturity, keeping the scoreboard ticking with the odd lusty blow thrown in, and his innings came when the game could have gone either way.

Adil Rashid would have bowled far better in picking up four wickets, and as a bowling unit it was probably their poorest outing, but overall an excellent win.

RSB: With or without the shenanigans, @BCBtigers at home is a serious scalp. Well done @englandcricket.   

Dan Pritchett: A young inexperienced team lead by a new captain to win in these conditions is a damn good achievement. Well done boys!   

Russell Anderson: You can argue it's only Bangladesh but that's still a pretty impressive chase and one that would never have happend 2 years ago

England win by four wickets and win the series 2-1

Well played England. This was a tough total to chase in difficult conditions. Billings, Duckett and Stokes deserve special mention for their efforts with the bat.

Bangladesh can't make it seven series wins on the bounce. And they remain without a series win over England.

Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes celebrate

Eng 278-6

What a way to win a game and a series. Woakes punches the ball down the ground and over the rope to give England the win with 13 balls to spare.

Eng 272-6 (6 needed from 15 balls)

England have now silenced the crowd, probably for good. Shafiul bowls two wides, to underline that this game and the series have gone.

Shafiul Islam

Eng 267-6 (11 needed from 17 balls)

Massive. Stokes takes a step and times his shot perfectly to send the ball way back into the stand behind bowler Shafiul.

Dan Benson: Only England could turn a less-than-a-run-a-ball chase with two of the best ODI batsmen in the world at the crease into a nail-biter.

Eng 261-6 (17 needed from 18 balls)

Woakes, now settled again after a little chat with Stokes, repeats his shot from earlier with another drive for four to end the over. Penny for Kayes' thoughts. 

Dropped catch

Eng 257-6

Would you believe it. Stokes goes from the sublime to the ridiculous as he flashes wildly and edges to Kayes at slip. The Bangladesh fielder makes an absolute mess of the catch, though, juggling and then dropping it. Has he just dropped the series?

Eng 257-6 (21 needed from 21 balls)

Taskin takes over as Mortaza stays with seam. Woakes pulls out a superb drive through cover for four. Shot of the day. It silences the crowd.

Eng 251-6 (27 needed off 24 balls)

Shafiul plays on Stokes' natural instinct to attack by sending one up there and drawing a flash and a miss. After conceding a single he then cuts one right through Woakes and just past off stump before beating him outside off. Just two off the over. Little bit of nerves on show from the tourists.

The tigers are praying en masse now.

Eng 249-6 (target 278)

29 needed off 30 balls

Mortaza is fuming. Woakes somehow gets two down to Taskin at third man, who bizarelly throws to the non-striker's end. It is an extra run Bangladesh can dearly do without conceding. Four off the over as an unruffled England ease onward. Mortaza finishes with 2-51. He needs to find someone else to take responsibility with the ball. I suspect it will be Shakib.

Walked into Burger King in Durham City to see Robin Smith tucking into a Double Whopper.

I met Mark Ramprakash in my local Tesco and advised him to buy an electric toothbrush rather than the normal ones he was perusing.

Nirav, Pinner

Eng 245-6 (33 needed off 36 balls)

Sneaky. Woakes was dismissed by a full Taskin ball outside off in the last match, but here he uses softer hands to steer a similar ball to third man for four. He then beats mid-on to get three more. This is where England's long line-up really comes into its own.

Damien Farney: Straussy and Gus Fraser casually wandered into my mate Simon's wedding reception at Twickenham stadium. Very bizarre scenes  

Simeon Entwistle: Once asked James Anderson for directions to Taunton Library, he wasn't sure where it was either.

Humphrey Flange: Sat on the next table to Andrew Hall in a garden centre restaurant near Woburn.

Eng 236-6 (target 278)

One fan holds aloft a banner that declares Mortaza as his hero. I'm not surprised. The Bangladesh skipper has been top class this series. He is keeping his side in this game and series. Woakes joins Stokes, who sees out three dot balls to end the over. A run a ball needed.


Moeen c Mahmudullah b Mortaza 1 (Eng 236-6)

Very poor from Moeen. It is a slower cutter from Mortaza and he looks to flick the ball to leg but instead sends the ball looping tamely up to Mahmudullah at mid-on. Bangladesh are well in this now.
