Bangladesh put their one-day series defeat in Zimbabwe behind them as they beat Kenya by six wickets in Nairobi, and with nearly 20 overs to spare.

Mohammad Ashraful returned to form with an unbeaten 67 which occupied just 43 balls after Tigers paceman Mashrafe Mortaza had taken 3-25 with the ball.

For Kenya, Steve Tikolo offered hope with a quick 47 but lack of experience told in a total of 168 all out.

Bangladesh losty both openers cheaply but were not unduly stretched.

An unbeaten partnership of 74 between Ashraful and youngster Farhad Reza got them to the finish line from the first ball of the 31st over.

Reza made 34 runs having conceded 14 from the only over he bowled.
