Ton-up Tamim as Bangladesh post 190/2
Opening batsman Tamim Iqbal (104) recorded his eighth Test century as Bangladesh posted 190/2 in 44 overs during the opening day's play of the second and final Test against England in Mirpur on Friday. Tamim put on 170 runs for the second wicket alongside Mominul Haque (66*), who bagged his 10th fifty. Mahmudullah (nine) is unbeaten along with Mominul. Tamim and Mominul rescued Bangladesh after 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.
