Bangladesh A 218 for 9 (Faruque 53, Briggs 3-31) beat England Lions 143 (Shuvo 4-25) by 75 runs

Bangladesh A, on the back of an incisive spell from Suhrawadi Shuvo, completed a 75-run win against England Lions in the third unofficial ODI in Chittagong. The win gives Bangladesh A a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

England Lions put Bangladesh A in, a decision that seemingly paid off when Stuart Meaker picked up two early wickets. Thereafter, though, the rest of the top and middle order all contributed to make sure the hosts went past the 200-run mark. Mahmudul Hasan and Shuvagata Hom both made scores in the 40s, while one of the openers, Nasiruddin Faruque, top scored with 53. Bangladesh A lost most of their wickets to left-arm spinner Danny Briggs and run outs - three apiece.

The chase of 219 was off to a brisk start, with Alex Hales and James Vince putting on 48 in under eight overs. Once Shuvo broke that stand with his left-arm spin though, Bangladesh A struck with regularity. England Lions lost all ten wickets for 95 runs, folding for 143 in the 35th over. Shuvo, the Man of the Match, finished with four wickets and conceded only 25 runs in 7.4 overs.
