Records tumble in England victory
NatWest Series, Trent Bridge: England 391-4 (50 overs) beat Bangladesh 223 all out (45.2 overs) by 168 runs

Collingwood hit an unbeaten 112 and took six wickets
Paul Collingwood became the first man to score a century and take six wickets in a one-day international as England thrashed Bangladesh by 168 runs.

Collingwood hit 112 not out, sharing a stand of 210 with Andrew Strauss as England tallied a national record 391-4 in the day-night match at Trent Bridge.

Mohammad Ashraful smashed 94 from 52 balls but Collingwood helped bowl the tourists out for 223, taking 6-31.

Strauss's 152 was the third-highest by an England batsman in one-day games.

398-5 Sri Lanka v Kenya 1995/96
391-4 England v Bangladesh 2005
376-2 India v NZ 1999/2000
373-6 India v Sri Lanka 1999
371-9 Pakistan v Sri Lanka 1996/97

But it was almost a footnote as Collingwood notched the second-fastest century by an Englishman and then recorded England's best bowling figures ever.

His ton was only slower than Kevin Pietersen's 69-ball effort against South Africa in East London in February.

But his bowling return topped Mark Ealham's 5-15 against Zimbabwe at Kimberley in 1999/2000 as the best for England in limited-overs internationals.

There was also success for Chris Tremlett, who took 4-32, the second-best return for an England debutant behind Adam Hollioake's 4-23 against Pakistan in 1996.

Tremlett, brought into the squad last week for the injured Simon Jones and playing instead of Darren Gough, impressed early with disconcerting bounce.

In his fifth over, he forced fellow new boy Shariar Nafees to edge onto his stumps for 10 and then had Tushar Imran caught behind.

Ashraful only survived the hat-trick ball when his edged shot bounced on top of the stumps without dislodging them.

But the 20-year-old, fresh from his century against Australia, made the most of his escape by taking on all of England's fast bowlers, with three successive boundaries in one painful over for Steve Harmison.

Despite conceding the second-highest total ever, behind the 398-5 made by Sri Lanka against Kenya in 1995-96, Bangladesh were only out of the hunt once Ashraful was dismissed in the 26th over.

Collingwood ran through the lower order as the required run rate climbed, dismissing Habibul Bashar and Aftab Ahmed with successive deliveries.

Opener Javed Omar Belim stood firm with 59 but was the sixth to go, playing on as he tried to dig out a Collingwood yorker.

By contrast the only point at which England looked anything other than sublime was an eight-over spell in the middle of the innings, when all three wickets fell.

By then the openers had blitzed Bangladesh's pace attack, with Tapash Baisya's first five overs going for 60 runs.

Marcus Trescothick, who had already notched his 20th one-day half-century, took 26 of those from a single over with a sequence of 4,6,4,4, no ball, 4 from the luckless bowler.

152 - Andrew Strauss v Bdesh 2005

142 - Graham Gooch v Pak 1987

Nazmul Hossain finally had the left-hander caught at cover when a mistimed drive flew high in the air.

Skipper Michael Vaughan looked out of touch as he groped at seven deliveries before chopping Nazmul onto his stumps for a duck.

And Andrew Flintoff failed to capitalise on an opportunity to regain form when he lofted medium-pacer Aftab Ahmed to long off.

However, Collingwood and Strauss quickly settled into a partnership that saw 200 runs added in 142 balls against an attack bereft of ideas.

Strauss, dropped twice in the 20s, reached the boundary 19 times, with several of those from a scoop shot down the leg side.

Collingwood blasted five powerful sixes on a perfect batting surface before starring with ball in hand.
