Bangladesh v England: Moeen & Stokes in fightback after Tamim century

Moeen Ali leads England off the field

Second Test, Dhaka (day one)
Bangladesh 220 (63.5 overs): Tamim 104, Moeen 5-57
England 50-3 (12.3 overs): Root 15*, Mehedi 2-26
Bangladesh lead by 170 runs

England took nine wickets for just 49 runs to bowl out Bangladesh for 220 on day one of a fluctuating second Test.

Bangladesh lost Imrul Kayes in the third over, before Tamim Iqbal made his third century against England and put on 170 with Mominul Haque (66).

But Moeen Ali took 5-57 and Ben Stokes an influential 2-13 as the hosts lost their final nine wickets in 22 overs.

England, 1-0 up in the two-Test series, lost three quick wickets to spin and were 50-3 when rain ended play early.

Bangladesh got within 23 runs of their 286 target in the magnificent first Test in Chittagong, but their afternoon batting display equals the second-worst collapse by a team who had already scored in excess of 170 for the loss of only one wicket.

England, who yet again suffered a collapse of their own at the start of their innings, made two changes, recalling Steven Finn for Stuart Broad and giving Surrey left-arm spinner Zafar Ansari his Test debut in place of 39-year-old Gareth Batty.
