3rd one-day international, Dhaka
England 185-3 bt Bangladesh 182 by seven wickets
England completed a 3-0 series sweep of the one-day internationals in Bangladesh with another simple victory under the floodlights in Dhaka.
Andrew Flintoff, the star of the series, hit four sixes in another exciting innings of 52 not out having taken 2-32 with the ball.
Bangladesh hit 182, their highest score of the series, but they were never likely to cause a scare.
All-rounder Mushfiqur Rahman did at least emerge with plenty of credit.
He took 2-29, carrying an injury but bowling his 10 overs all in one spell, and also top-scored for his team with 36.
Michael Vaughan lost the toss and Bangladesh elected to bat first on an easy-paced wicket well suited for batting.
James Anderson was too much of a handful for newcomer Moniruzzaman with the new ball.
It was no surprise when he tamely lobbed up a catch for the bowler to take off his own bowling as Bangladesh stumbled to 6-1.
Hannan Sarkar hit a bright 21 before he was run out by Paul Collingwood's brilliant direct hit and Habibul Bashar used up 65 balls to hit 22.
Under-fire captain Khaled Mahmud was the second man run out, in farcical circumstances as both he and Rahman ended up at the same end with the bails off at the other.
Rikki Clarke did not get a single chance to bat in the series
Rikki Clarke was gifted two wickets but kept his discipline well while Flintoff finally removed the troublesome Rahman, who had scored at nearly a run a ball.
At 103-6, England had plenty of opportunities to bowl out Bangladesh for a cheaper score than they finished with.
But, as in Chittagong and in the first match here, the last two wickets added welcome runs.
Rookie spinner Manjural Islam Rana, batting at 10, looked more at home than most of his colleagues, hitting 20 not off 21 balls.
Tapash Baisya was the last man out, as James Kirtley struck with the first ball of the last over.
Kirtley and Gareth Batty were both playing their first matches of the series.
The men they were replacing, Richard Johnson and Ashley Giles, will probably be back in the side for the first match of the one-day series in Sri Lanka, however.
The same cannot necessarily be said of Vikram Solanki, who followed scores of 10 and nought with another dismal effort of one.
Marcus Trescothick (50) and Michael Vaughan (29) put England on their way with a partnership of 61 in 14 overs.
Then Collingwood (46 not out) and Flintoff brought the tourists home in the 40th over.
Flintoff's quartet of sixes under these bright lights gave him an English record of 48 from only 65 matches.
His scores followed two other murderous unbeaten innings of 55 and 70. He has made the number five spot his own - that much is sure.
