Ian Bell returned to one day international cricket, top scoring with 84 not out from 101 balls. England managed to hold Bangladesh to 250-9 on a good scoring wicket only needing just over 45 overs to win the first match of the series.
The game was marred by two injuries to Bangladesh players. Wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim and batsman Raqibul Hasan suffered nasty injuries.
Mushfiqur was struck in the eye by a delivery from slow left-armer Faisal Hossain which turned and bounced. He was stretchered off with Junaid Siddique taking over wicket keeping duties. Raqibul was injured when he was struck on his instep by a James Anderson yorker.
