Just like before Tea where Adil Rashid removed set batsman in Mahmudullah to make a dent, the close of play also belonged to the visitors with Mushfiqur Rahim walking back after getting an under edge to Ben Stokes. That brought out night watchman Shafiul Islam to join Shakib Al Hasan. At the end, Bangladesh stood at 221/5 and still trailing England by 72 runs.

The game hangs in the balance after the first two days of tough cricket in the Chittagong heat as England’s pace attack does a better job than the spinners – contrary to how things panned out in the first essay.
