Stokes ripped through Bangladesh with reverse-swing to finish on 4-26 on the third day including three wickets in the morning session as the hosts were all out for 248 in their first innings after resuming on 221-5.
At the change of innings, England unexpectedly led by 45 runs.
Then Stokes’ restrained 85-run knock helped England end the third day on 228-8 in its second innings, stretching the lead to 273 a significant advantage on a pitch offering turn and variable bounce.
