England took the three-match series 2-1

Bangladesh won the toss and elected to field first. England captain Andrew Strauss getting career-best 152 in 140 balls

And Trott then seized his chance with 94 at Bristol before making a maiden ODI century on his Warwickshire home ground.

Ravi Bopara blazed his way to 45 not out off 16 balls with four sixes on Monday and then took four wickets with his medium-pacers. Finally England getting amazing total for 347/7 in 50 over.

Bangladesh, chasing an imposing 348 to win, never looked like getting remotely close and were bowled out for 203 as England took the three-match series 2-1.

It was just the sort of emphatic victory England needed after the embarrassment of their five-run defeat - their first against Bangladesh in any format - in the second one-dayer at Bristol on Saturday.

"We are going to need a squad of players at the World Cup 2011," said Strauss

"Things have clouded over a little because these guys have come in and done so well," said Strauss, both the man-of-the-match and the series.

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza, who led by example with three wickets for 31 runs on Monday, was at a loss to explain his side's dip in form.

"It was (disappointing). We played poorly as a team."

But the seamer promised Bangladesh would bounce back in their remaining tour games against Scotland and Ireland.

"We have to play well and win those matches," Mortaza said. "I am confident we will be back and confident we will be better than before."
