Feeds assumed a key part with an unbeaten 47 as England won the choosing third match against the hosts in Chittagong on Wednesday to wrap up a third progressive one-day arrangement triumph, having beaten Sri Lanka and Pakistan at home prior this year. Britain are right now fifth in the ODI rankings, behind Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and India.

“It’s truly energizing. On the off chance that we bear on like this we’ll accomplish our objective of being world number one,” Stokes, who was named the man of the arrangement, told. Britain’s misfortune to Bangladesh in Adelaide, which thumped them out of the 2015 ODI World Cup, prodded a series of changes to the national group set-up and Stokes felt the squad are beginning to yield the profits of the system.

“The group we have had together throughout the previous year and a half have been playing unimaginable cricket,” the 25-year-old included. With captain Eoin Morgan sitting out the Bangladesh arrangement over security concerns, wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler was entrusted with driving a youthful and unpracticed squad against a side that had won their six past home ODI arrangement.

“Me and Jos work entirely well. We’re entirely forceful by they way we need to play our cricket with the bat and the ball, as well as with field placings,” Stokes, who was bad habit commander for the arrangement, said. Morgan and powerful opening batsman Alex Hales are relied upon to come back to the squad when England go to India for their next three-coordinate ODI arrangement in January.
