- ‘We gave opportunities to people in different ways’
- Ahmed bowled full 10 overs and Curran batted at five
England lost the final one-day international against Bangladesh on Monday, but they gained some valuable information about their players. Jos Buttler chose to use the opportunity to experiment, presented by a dead rubber with the series won.
The teenage leg-spinner Rehan Ahmed bowled a full allocation of 10 overs on his white-ball debut, taking a wicket with his last ball, and Sam Curran was bumped up the batting order to five, where he scored 23 off 49 deliveries, as England rolled the dice, but it resulted in defeat by 50 runs.
