England determined to win three match series against Bangladesh

CHITTAGONG: Sam Billings and Ben Duckett hit half-centuries as England cruised to four-wicket victory in the third ODI to win the three-match series against Bangladesh in Chittagong on Wednesday.

Set a challenging target after leg-spinner Adil Rashid’s career best four for 43 restricted Bangladesh to 277-6, England passed the target losing six wickets in 47.5 overs with Duckett scoring innings highest 63 runs, his second fifty in the series.

The visitors’ victory also ended Bangladesh’s unbeaten run of six consecutive series at home dating back from November 2014.

Playing his first match in the series, Billings got his maiden fifty scoring 62 runs off 69 balls, which gave England much-needed solidity in what was seemingly a tough chase on the pitch that remained covered for two days due to rain.
