All-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz delivered with bat and ball as Bangladesh stunned world champions England by four wickets in a thrilling second successive series to clinch the three-match Twenty20 series with a game to spare in Mirpur on Sunday.

Chasing 118 to win, the hosts got off to a disappointing start when they lost openers Litton Das and Rony Talukdar for single-digit scores, before Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mehidy stitched together a 41-run partnership to get them back on the right track.

Jofra then dismissed Archer Mehidy and Afif Hossain to finish with three wickets in his four overs, but Najmul (46) and Taskin Ahmed managed to chase down the target with seven balls remaining.
