England need two wickets, Bangladesh 33 runs to win test

  • Bangladesh 253-8 at stumps
  • Hosts need 33 for victory

Batty returned for a spell and finally sent back Mushfiqur, caught at short leg with a delivery that spun sharply and bounced awkwardly for the batsmen to handle.

England thought they had the match in the bag when Stuart Broad, who saw Sabbir dropped on 34 by Bairstow off his bowling, dismissed debutants Mehedi Hasan and Kamrul Islam in quick succession.

But Sabbir and Taijul remained unbeaten, adding 15 for the unbroken ninth wicket to push the match into the final day.
