Bangladesh 236-7 (Imrul Kayes 76, Shahzad 3-41) v England
Second One-Day International, Bristol

Bangladesh made a good start but faded badly before reaching 236 for seven against England in the second One-Day International at Bristol.

England were able to drop four catches and lose Ian Bell to a fracture in his foot but were still able to limit Bangladesh despite a half-century from Imrul Kayes.

Kayes made a patient 76 in 111 balls to anchor the innings and when he was batting in partnership with Jahurul Islam (40), they looked to be setting a platform for a very competitive score.

However, England's bowlers kept them in check and Ajmal Shahzad, in the side in place of Tim Bresnan, returned three for 41 by dismissing Tamim Iqbal (18), Kayes and Islam while Stuart Broad and Paul Colllingwood were the other wicket-takers.

Mohammad Ashraful (14) and Mashrafe Mortaza (22) were run out as the pressure grew on the tourists, who are 1-0 down in the three-match series.

England also introduced Jonathan Trott into the side in place of off-spinner James Tredwell while Ashraful and Islam replace injured pair Raqibul Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim for Bangladesh.
