At one stage on the opening day of the first Test between Bangladesh and England, it looked like the visitors were in for a troubled time. England were 21/3 and had lost the first three wickets in the first innings for the lowest score in Asia. Things looked bleak with Duckett, Cook and Ballance back in the hut. That is when defiant knocks by Joe Root (40), Moeen Ali (68) and Jonny Bairstow (52) got them out of the gutter to a respectable 258/7 at close of play. For Bangladesh, Mehedi Hasan Miraz picked up a fifer on debut to inflict the most damage on the visiting side’s chances. The remaining two were also picked up by a spinner – Shakib Al Hasan.
