England cruise to easy one-day series whitewash over Bangladesh

7:08 am on 6 March 2010

The opening batsman Craig Kieswetter struck his maiden one-day century for England who romped to a 45-run victory over Bangladesh to win the one-day cricket series 3-nil.

South African-born Kieswetter, who completed his four-year qualification process last month and was added to the one-day squad after impressing for the England Lions, blasted 107 for the tourists who piled up an imposing 284 for five.

Seamer Tim Bresnan then took four wickets as Bangladesh were restricted to 239 for nine.

Kieswetter, playing only his third one-day international, led the way by blasting nine fours and three sixes in his hundred.

Eion Morgan, who cracked an unbeaten century in the previous game, chipped in with 36 and Luke Wright added 32 off only 13 balls.
