Bangladesh claim first Test win over England on day three in Dhaka


Bangladesh claimed their first Test win over England as the tourists lost 10 wickets for just 64 runs after tea on day three of the second Test in Dhaka.

Chasing 273, England collapsed from 100-0, with 19-year-old Mehedi Hasan taking 6-77 and Shakib al Hasan 4-49.

They had earlier dismissed the hosts for 296 after four dropped catches.

Bangladesh had only beaten Zimbabwe and the West Indies in Tests before, but the 108-run win means the two-match series finished 1-1.

England needed their highest successful run chase in Asia and looked well set after a century opening partnership between Alastair Cook and Ben Duckett but lost all 10 wickets in 22.5overs in the final session.

Meanwhile on an update on the second day of the first test between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, at tea, Sri Lanka were 522 for the loss of 8 wickets with Upul Tharanga scoring his second test century.
