Mehedi Hasan claimed his second five-for in as many Tests as England go to lunch at 163 for 8, still trailing Bangladesh by 57 runs on Day Two of the second Test at Dhaka. England have therefore scored 113 runs and lost five wickets in the first session of the day. Bangladesh made a bright beginning to Day Two as they dismissed Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes within four overs after play began. Moeen was out after he missed a sweep and his off stumps was rattled. Stokes was dismissed after a sharp catch at forward short leg for a duck. Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow did hold fort for a while. Their 45-run stand was ended by Mehedi, who trapped Bairstow in front off the first delivery of his new spell. This brought debutant Zafar Ansari to the crease. He was off the mark after the ball took an outside edge and bisected the two slip fielders. FULL Cricket Scorecard: Bangladesh vs England, 2nd Test at Mirpur

Root however, carried his fight on. He got to his fifty off 104 balls and he was going to be key for England, if they were to wipe off this deficit. Root did not played any silly shot throughout his innings. After getting a good start in the first Test, Root looked determined to make this innings count right from the beginning. He was however trapped in front by Taijul Ismal after a missed the ball, playing it off the back foot. England were in serious trouble when he was dismissed for 56. Ansari too looked calm and composed. Despite getting a couple of outside edges, he managed to stick it out for some time. But he was not third time lucky as an outside edge found Hom at second slip. His debut innngs came to an end for 13.

Chris Woakes was given out caught behind as well, but he immediately took a review and the on field umpire s decision was overturned. This time however, the umpire was S Ravi and not Kumar Dharmasena. Bangladesh go into the lunch break in command. Only three bowlers have been used by Bangladesh so far and if needed, skipper Mushfiqur has the part-time option Shuvagata Hom and Sabbir Rahman at his disposal. They need a couple of wickets more and they will look to get them at the earliest, thereby taking a first innings lead. They however will have to bat well and set England a big target, if they are to level the series. They must learn from their mistakes in the first innings and should n go through a similar collapse.

On the first day, Bangladesh collapsed from 171 for 1 to 220 all out. Tamim Iqbal scored an excellent ton a and also put on 170 for the second wicket with Mominal Haque (66), but that is as good as things got for Bangladesh. Their middle-order made very little contributions as Bangladesh failed to capitalise on their initiative and put a big score on the board. Bangladesh however did not give up that easily. They picked up three wickets before stumps, to even things up. They dismissed the openers Alastair Cook abd Ben Duckett cheaply. Gary Ballance s poor run with the bat continued as he was dismissed for 9. Rain had stopped play eventually and as a result, play began half hour early on Day Two.

It was Bangladesh, who had won the toss and elected to bat first. England decided to rest Stuart Broad and Gareth Batty for this match. As a result, Steven Finn was roped in and England gave a debut to all-rounder Ansari. Despite undergoing an endoscopy, Sabbir Rahman was declared fit to play this match for Bangladesh, who got in Shuvagata Hom in place of Shaiful Islam

Bangladesh 220 (Tamim Iqbal 104 , Mominul Haque 66 ; Moeen Ali 5 for 57, Chris Woakes 3 for 30) lead England 163 for 8 ( Joe Root 56, Jonny Bairstow 24; Mehedi Hasan 5 for 65, Taijul Islam 2 for 52) by 57 runs.
