Gabriel in the fifth over fol­low­ing the re­sump­tion with 10 runs added to the to­tal and Mominul Haque fol­lowed two balls later with­out scor­ing, edg­ing to Shai Hope at gully.

Tamim struck six fours off 105 balls in just un­der three hours as he then com­bined with Shakib in a 59run, third wicket stand to bail Bangladesh out of trou­ble.

How­ever, Holder struck twice in the space of three de­liv­er­ies about 20 min­utes be­fore tea, to rock Bangladesh once more. He claimed Shakib, play­ing on at­tempt­ing to cut one too close to him, and then trapped Mah­mudul­lah on the crease with­out scor­ing.

On 92 for four at tea, Bangladesh lost their last six wick­ets for just 57 runs to be dis­missed 25 min­utes be­fore the sched­uled close.

Tamim car­ried the fight ini­tially in a 38-run, fifth wicket part­ner­ship with Mush­fiqur but be­came Paul’s first wicket in Tests when he played down the wrong line and lost his off­s­tump.

Paul trapped Nu­rul Hasan lbw next ball to find him­self on a hat-trick and even though it was averted, Mush­fiqur fell soon af­ter­wards when steered Holder to Hope at gully at 128 for seven.

Holder bowled Tai­jul Is­lam with his very next de­liv­ery only to dis­cover he had over-stepped but atoned for his in­dis­cre­tion by get­ting the same bats­man bowled for 16, af­ter speed­ster Miguel Cum­mins had gained an lbw ver­dict against Me­hidy Hasan (3).Fit­tingly, Holder fin­ished off the in­nings by rat­tling Abu Jayed’s stumps be­fore the tailen­der had scored.
