England forces Bangladesh collapse and wins 1st ODI

BY foxsports • October 7, 2016

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) Fast bowler Jake Ball claimed 5-51 on debut as Bangladesh collapsed and England held on to win by 21 runs in the first one-day international on Friday.

Bangladesh, chasing 310 to win, was cruising towards a third consecutive victory over England at 271-4 with nine overs to go, but Ball and legspinner Adil Rashid claimed five wickets between them from that point.

Bangladesh lost its last six wickets for 17 runs and was all out for 288 in the 48th over.

Rashid took 4-49.

A maiden century from Ben Stokes steered England to what looked like an imposing 309-8, but Bangladesh made it look easily catchable while the crease was occupied by Imrul Kayes, who hit a career-best 112, and Shakib Al Hasan, who made 79. Shakib's dismissed by Ball sparked the collapse.
