So then England have picked up an easy win in the first ODI. Their performance wasn't really top notch but they would take the victory anyhow. Once again Paul Collingwood standing up in a crisis for his team. The pitch was really a placid one and a score of 320 plus was what required on this. Bangladesh could just get to respectability and all that was because of the one man show from Tamim Iqbal. England should have got these 229 runs a lot earlier which other top teams would have done certainly.
England win by 6 wickets to lead the 3-ODI Series 1-0.
