Opening batsman Tamim Iqbal (104) registered a brilliant century as he, alongside Mominul Haque (60), enabled Bangladesh to the driving seat against England during the opening day of the second and final Test in Mirpur on Friday. This was Tamim's eighth century while Mominul earlier posted his 10th fifty.
Together, the unbroken second wicket stand put on 170 runs as the Tigers recovered from the early departure of opener Imrul Kayes (one), who departed off the bowling of Chris Woakes.
Earlier, captain Mushfiqur Rahim won the toss and elected to bat first.
All-rounder Shuvagata Hom replaced Shafiul Islam in the playing XI for the Tigers.
On the other hand, England made two changes to the team from the first Test, Zafar Ansari making his debut after coming in for Gareth Batty and Steven Finn replacing the rested Stuart Broad.
