For any football fans out there, the Carling Cup final between Aston Villa and Man Utd. has just kicked off and you can follow the action live on our sister site,

And on that note, it's goodbye from Andrew McGlashan, Sahil Dutta and me, Liam Brickhill. Join us again in two days' time for the second ODI between England and Bangladesh at Mirpur.

So, England go one-nil up in the one-day series with a six-wicket win. Good, professional performance from England with Cook and Collingwood's half-centuries sealing the victory with plenty of time to spare. There was a little stutter before Collingwood and Morgan seized the initiative with an 88-run partnership. Bangladesh were let down by a few lapses in the field, particularly from Mushfiqur Rahim. And, of course, they will also be disappointed not to have been able to give any meaningful support to a fine knock from Tamim Iqbal.

Tamim is named Man of the Match for his hundred, but that will provide little succour to him after the nature of this defeat.

Mashrafe Mortaza to Collingwood, 1 run, full ball, Collingwood comes down the track and taps the ball into the covers, an easy single gives England the win!

Scores level

Mashrafe Mortaza to Prior, 1 run, another full toss, just a single down to long on though

just two needed...

Mashrafe Mortaza to Prior, 2 runs, full again, half-volley though, and shovelled down to long on
  • Tamim rues another missed chance

    Tamim Iqbal rated his blistering 125 from 120 balls in the first ODI against England at Mirpur as "one of his best" performances

  • Tamim shows both teams the way

    The Bangladesh opener produced a wonderful 125 but couldn't find support from his team-mates, while England continue their quest to find a similarly destructive opener

  • Collingwood leads England to opening victory

    Tamim Iqbal's glittering 125 was not enough for Bangladesh to break their duck against England as the visitors completed a professional six-wicket victory to open the one-day series at Mirpur

  • Proud Cook warns against complacency

    Alastair Cook has done all the right things in preparation for his first full series as England captain

  • Bangladesh can cause England problems

    Given England's less-than-stunning one-day international record it is an oddity that they are the only nation not to have come a cropper against Bangladesh in any international fixture
