Bangladesh tighten the noose
Bangladesh A 198 for 5 (Nazimuddin 42, Manjural Islam Rana 38*, Mahmudullah 2*) beat England A 194 (Prior 51, Mahmudullah 3-27) by 5 wickets
England A ended an otherwise encouraging tour of Bangladesh on a sour note, losing the third one-dayer by five wickets.
They were undone by Mahmudullah, the medium-pacer, and Bangladesh's slow left-arm spinner, Manjural Islam, each of whom took three wickets to stifle England's progress. Only Matt Prior, with a bludgeoning 51 and Will Jefferson (45) contributed scores of note.
Chasing 195 Bangladesh lost Mehrab Hossain cheaply but were steadied by Jahurul Islam (41) and Nazimuddin (42). Tim Bresnan struck twice, reducing the home side to 182 for 5, but an unbeaten 38 from Manjural Islam Rana edged Bangladesh home with five overs to spare.
