Match: In Pics

The maomentum of the game was never constant and individual performances turned the swing of the game to either sides.

Just when Bangladesh looked set to win it easy, Ajmal Shahzad struck twice and brought England right back in the game and Bangladesh's road to victory looked impossible as ever.

Earlier, Bangladesh skipper Shakib-al-Hasan in partenship with Imrul Kayes made it hard for England and the duo carried on untill less hundred runs were required for the Tigers to upset England.

Imrul Kayes statred off brilliantly making England bowlers sweat hard as the opening batsman was playing innings of his life infront of the home crowd.

With two wickets in quick succession England clawed their way back into the game as Bangladesh lost their way a little bit. The vociferous crowd had also gone silent.

Andrew Strauss was scratching his head as Tamim Iqbal was looking to take the game away from him, but he turned to Tim Bresnan and the lanky bowler did not disappoint his captain and sneaked one through the defences of Iqbal.

Bangladesh opening batsmen Imrul Kayes and Tamim Iqbal had started off in a blazing fashion against England and set the stadium on fire with blistering strokeplay. England rattled, their bowling was highly inconsistent

England choke to 225, B'desh ecstatic

England were all out for 225 in in 49.4 overs and Bangladesh camp was more churpier than English as they believed they have a good chance to knock over England.

Set batsmen Jonathan Trott made his way back to the hut as Bangladesh were pulling things back at crunch time. Tim Bresnan too was hold out soon after Trott.

After a nervous start England were finally back on track with Eoin Morgan and Jonathan Trott who set setting things right for the English and took the score past hundred without any further loss.

Ian Bell was the last casuality of England as the hosts Bangladesh picked up wickets at regular intervals and kept the English on the mat.

One could sense that Bangladesh had come out with a purpose and there was spring in their stride as England buckling down under pressure with both openers back in the hunch. Strauss tried to cut, but the ball was too close to play the shot, it took the edge and was caught at slip.

England keeper Matt Prior was undone by sharp presence of mind shown by Bangladesh wicket keeper Mushfiqur Rahim. Prior missed a ball down the leg side and tried to take a run without realising Rahim held the ball. Prior was both stumped and run-out.
