Mortaza record in Bangladesh romp
Third one-day international, Nairobi: Bangladesh 120-4 (27 overs) bt Kenya 118 (41.2 overs) by six wickets

Mashrafe Mortaza
Mortaza destroyed the Kenyans with a magnificent spell
Mashrafe Mortaza produced the best performance by a Bangladesh bowler in one-day internationals as the Tigers finished their tour of Kenya in style.

The seamer claimed 6-26 as the hosts were skittled for 118 in 41.2 overs.

Only Thomas Odoyo (29) put up much resistance and Bangladesh had few problems in getting home with 23 overs to spare thanks to Farhad Reza (41no).

Victory sealed a 3-0 sweep for the visitors, who bounced back from their 3-2 defeat in the series in Zimbabwe.

Mortaza was named man of the match and series after a virtuoso display which surpassed the 5-31 Aftab Ahmed took against New Zealand in Dhaka in November 2004.

He finished with 12 wickets in three games and ripped the hosts apart in overcast conditions after Syed Rasel trapped the out-of-form Kennedy Otieno lbw with the game's first ball and Mohammad Rafique bowled Morris Ouma.

Bangladesh also endured some anxious moments, slipping to 55-4 before youngsters Saqibul Hasan and Reza put on an unbroken 65 to wipe away any doubts.
