IN A result that could perhaps be compared to the loss to Iceland by the England football team, Bangladesh trounced the English cricket team in Dacca to record their first ever win against England and only their third ever win in Test Cricket.

In fairness, England was set quite a high score of 273 to win the match and things started very well with the opening pair of skipper Cook and 21-year-old newcomer Duckett scoring 100 for no loss before going to tea.

 Whatever was in the tea however did wonders for the Bangladeshi spinners who took 10 wickets from 22.5 overs to see the tourists skittled out for just 164 with the damage done by 19-year-old Mehedi Hasan who took 6 for 77and bowling partner Shakib Al Hasan who took the other four wickets.


Now England move on to a Test series in India which could well see them struggle against the Indian team.
