New Delhi:

England beat Bangladesh by four wickets in the third one-day international played at Chittagong on Wednesday, thereby sealing the ODI series 2-1.

The English side won the final match of series on the back of well compiled half centuries from their batsman Ben Duckett and Sam Billings.

Batting first, Bangladesh set the visitors an imposing target of 277-6 but England timed their chase to pefection and raced to victory with 13 balls to spare.

The victory also ended Bangladesh's unbeaten run in six bilateral series on home soil.

Ben Duckett scored 63, his second half-century in the series, while Billings, who replaced injured Jason Roy in the opening slot, made 62.  

Those two knocks kept England on course and Ben Stokes, 47 not out, kept up the momentum to win a series which became heated following a verbal spat between players of the two teams in the second match.

Fast bowlers Mashrafe Mortaza and Shafiul Islam were impressive with their spells as both the pacers claimed two wickets apiece for Bangladesh.
