Bangladesh beat Scotland by 146 runs to complete a 2-0 series victory over Craig Wright's men in Mirpur.

Mashrafe Mortaza clubbed 51 not out from 28 balls batting at number eight before taking 2-39 as the Scots were bowled out for 132 in 41.3 overs.

Majid Haq made his debut for Scotland after vice-captain Ryan Watson was injured in Friday's defeat.

Watson tried to hook Mortaza and edged the ball into his face, sustaining a hairline fracture of his cheekbone.

Mortaza, on course to be leading the wicket-taker in one-day internationals this year, came to the crease for Bangladesh when they were 199-6.

He smashed five sixes and two fours to set a target well beyond Scotland's reach after Aftab Ahmed had hit a 46-ball 52 earlier in the innings.

Wright (2-46) was Scotland's most effective bowler, while Haq also got two wickets, but was more expensive.

Abdur Razzak was Bangladesh's most successful bowler, taking 4-23 and he helped reduce the tourists to 87-8.

Some late defiance from the tail kept Bangladesh waiting but the hosts still closed out an impressive victory.
