England rout Bangladesh


London, June 16:

Marcus Trescothick celebrated his 100th ODI appearance with an effortless 76-ball century, and Andrew Strauss marked his return to the top of the order with a composed 82, as England cantered to a ten-wicket victory inside 25 overs in the NatWest Series opener.

England were in such control that the pair were more concerned with engineering a three-figure score for Trescothick than winning in haste. He and Strauss exchanged singles in the final over to bring up his hundred. Earlier, Steve Harmison took four wickets and Jon Lewis three as England dismissed Bangladesh for 190. It could have been a lot worse but for Aftab Ahmed, who cracked a half-century and put on 76 for the seventh wicket with tailender Mohammad Rafique.
