Scorecard

England Lions put in an impressive all-round show to seal a consolation win in the final one-dayer against Bangladesh A at Sylhet Stadium. Bangladesh A took the series 3-2.

The day began well for the Lions after they won the toss and made quick incisions with the new ball. Jack Brooks struck three times in his first four overs to push Bangladesh A to 13 for 3. Left-arm spinner Simon Kerrigan then came into the game with two blows as the score shuddered to 49 for 6. At that stage, even 100 seemed a far cry, but the hosts managed a recovery through the lower order led by No. 9 Noor Hossain (38 off 28 balls) to finish on 152.

England Lions lost opener Joe Root for no score, but James Taylor and Alex Hales steadied the ship with a 52-run stand. Two quick wickets, within the space of seven balls, gave Bangladesh A an outside chance, but Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler supported Taylor well to ensure there were no further hiccups, until the winning runs were scored in the 38th over.
