Bangladesh ended the second day’s play in the second and final Test on 152/3 in 31 overs against England in Mirpur on Saturday. The Tigers have a 128-run lead heading into the third day on Sunday.

Opening batsmen Tamim Iqbal (40) and Imrul Kayes (59*) put together a 65-run stand before the former was dismissed by Zafar Ansari.

Mominul Haque (one) then arrived at the crease but he too departed soon after off the bowling of Ben Stokes.

Mahmudullah (47) and Imrul added 86 valuable runs for the third wicket before Ansari intervened again to send back the former off the final ball of the second day. Imrul in the meantime recorded his fourth fifty.

Earlier, England were dismissed for 244 in their first innings with youngster Mehedi Hasan Miraz bagging his second six-wicket haul in a row. As a result, the visitors took a 24-run lead.
