After England were bowled out for 293 in their first innings, Bangladesh openers had looked steady in the beginning. Imrul Kayes mirrored the assurance he showed in the one-day series while Tamim played watchfully.
England captain Alastair Cook called on Moeen Ali, who top-scored for his side with 68, to bowl the final over of the morning and it took him just two deliveries to break the opening stand.
The wily offspinner fired in a quicker delivery that beat the outside edge of Kayes (21) and crashed into the stumps. Another beautiful delivery three balls later turned and bounced to catch the shoulder of Mominul Haque’s bat and go into the hands of Stokes at slips.
Tamim was subdued at the outset, but having a persevering partner in Mahmudullah, he switched gears.

Mushfiqur and Shakib then became busy in the middle, opting for quick singles and going for their shots whenever on offer. After the pair raised the tempo, Cook brought back his pacers late in the day with hopes that they would get reverse swing.
With the close of play approaching, Mushfiqur and Shakib decided to see through without taking any risk but ended managing just one run for the wicket of Mushfiqur in the final seven overs.
Moeen returned 2-66 while Rashid, Batty and Stokes took a wicket each. Stokes, however, was the only seamer to grab a wicket in the match so far.
