England made an early breakthrough in the Bangladesh second innings as they looked to tee up a winning position at lunch on day four of the second Test.
England extended their first-innings lead to 77 this morning on their way to 496 all out, with Tim Bresnan falling nine short of a century in only his second Test knock.
Stuart Broad then accounted for Imrul Kayes in the seventh over of Bangladesh's innings, leaving the Tigers 28 for one at the interval 49 behind.
England started in reasonably sedate fashion, with Bresnan, no doubt eyeing his century, blocking as many balls as he played, though debutant James Tredwell showed a willingness to get after the bad ball and helped himself to a handful of early boundaries.
Bresnan nudged his way into the 90s but was still frustratingly short of three figures when he skipped down the track to Abdur Razzak and was stumped off one that bounced and turned.
The Yorkshireman's dismissal also ensured Ian Bell can finally lay claim to having scored the only century of a Test innings.
Each of his nine previous hundreds have come after a team-mate has already made one, a statistic which has often been used against the batsman.
Tredwell, on 23, clearly viewed Steven Finn's arrival as a chance to open his arms and launched Shakib Al Hasan for successive fours into the on-side. Tredwell fell in identical fashion to Bresnan, giving Razzak a scarcely-deserved return of three wickets.
Many batsmen would have been looking to merely survive the awkward pre-lunch period, but Tigers opener Tamim Iqbal has showed a fearless streak since the start of the series.
Tamim produced a devastating 85 in the first session of the match and was soon looking to pepper the boundary once again, finding the ropes with a hook off Broad. Opening partner Imrul though was bowled by Broad off his thigh pad for four to give England the breakthrough.
