The shining venture of Bangladesh during the first session had tarnished away in the second session and they eventually fell into the abyss of disappointment. Bangladesh went to lunch on 118 runs losing only 1 wicket and after lunch Tamim and Mominul clinched their 8th century and 10th fifty respectively. Then the English bowlers came back so strongly that they just torn apart Bangladesh middle order and forced them to lose 5 wickets in quick succession within 31 runs. The session was a nightmare for Bangladesh and they went for tea on 205 for 6.
The despair continued after tea break as they lost their final fours in just 15 runs. Moeen Ali leaded to destruct Bangladeshi batsmen and achieved his second five wicket haul in test. Bangladesh managed to score 220 runs at the end.
Prior to the collapse, all were deemed auspicious for Bangladesh despite the early fall of Kayes. Tamim and Mominul were playing magisterially and hit the ball all around the ground to score runs in an incessant rate over 4. Together they made a quick and solid partnership of 170 runs.
Bangladesh tried to pull back themselves while came to bowl as they sent back three top order English batsmen to the pavilion within 42 runs. Shakib struck in his very first over to get the wicket of Duckett and later Miraz struck twice.
The day had been called off stumped earlier than usual due to heavy rain. England ended the day on 50. Play will start at 9:30 tomorrow to expiate today’s curtailed overs.
