Commentary

Right, that's more than enough from me, thanks for all the emails. Make sure you check out our gallery of today's action. If you're missing Test cricket already, make sure you join us for the West Indies v South Africa series that begins June 10.

Strauss said: "It was encouraging the way the bowlers went in helpful conditions, pretty happy with how things have gone, but sterner tests will come" and credits his two young bowlers, Steven Finn and Ajmal Shahzad, for their good showing this Test.

Shakib says it's disappointing to end the series in this way and that his team found it harder to play the moving ball than the short ball. He also says morale is hard to maintain when the team is losing so regularly but feels they are improving steadily and is looking forward to the ODI series.

The Bangladesh player of the series, and really the overall man of the series is, unsurprisingly, Tamim Iqbal. What a man he is, he bludgeoned 268 runs at 67 at almost a run a ball this series. He says his Lord's hundred was the better of his two, and that he's comfortable playing the short ball. When asked why he's gone on better than his team-mates, Tamim responds quite simply - "I work harder". No malice in the words at all either, just good honesty.

The England player of the series, nominated by the Bangladesh coach is Steven Finn, for his 15 wickets in the series and back-to-back five-fors. He says he feels he bowled better at Lord's and thinks going at four-an-over was not really good enough. What a cheery fellow!

Nasser Hussain is leading the presentation ceremony and the man of the match goes to Ian Bell, oddly enough. He looks like a kid who's just sneaked a bottle of champagne out the off licence and says the Ashes Test at The Oval and his performances in South Africa has given him the confidence he needed.

Andrew Miller has summed up all the action in his bulletin, so while we wait for the presentation ceremony, do check that out.

You sensed, once the rain cleared, Bangladesh might be in trouble following on, but to have, once again, lost 10 wickets in session, is very disappointing from them. England continue their perfect record against Bangladesh and take the series two-nil. I expect plenty of chat about 'efficiency' and 'ruthlessness' from England in the aftermath of their victory here but there is plenty for them to work on. Under clouds they are world beaters, in the sunshine, a lot less so.

Bangladesh were always likely to lose after yesterday's collapse, but the limp way in which they gifted their wickets away today was frustrating.

England win by an innings and 80 runs Cheers and high-fives all round for England. Finn collects a stump for himself after a second successive five-wicket haul. Bangladesh really folded here, not much fight from them, but the conditions were perfect for England, dank and murky and swinging round corners.

Swann to Abdur Razzak, OUT, and that is that! Razzak has one slog too many and sends the ball miles high off the top edge, it was swirling around and Morgan actually did well to watch it carefully into his hands at deep long on.

END OF OVER:
34 | 4 Runs 1 Wkt | BDESH: 123/9

Finn to Shahadat Hossain, no run, another pull shot attempted, and this time Shahadat connects well, but Anderson fields smartly at midwicket to prevent runs

Finn to Shahadat Hossain, FOUR runs, fuller from Finn, the batsman backs away into the leg side and drives it through the covers for a couple

Finn to Shahadat Hossain, no run, dug in short, Shahadat swishes a pull shot but cannot connect

Finn to Shafiul Islam, OUT, much better line and what has happened here? Shafiul backed away and open-faced a defensive prod into the slips, it dipped late as it reached Strauss, but the England captain is unsure whether it carried and the umpire has asked for the TV replay... it looked like he has his hands underneath it and the third umpire gives it out. Looked a good decision and that's another five-wicket haul for Steven Finn

Finn to Shafiul Islam, no run, too wide from Finn, he should be attacking the stumps at a batsman like Shafiul who is so reluctant to get in line
