England beat Bangladesh by 22 runs

England rescued an unlikely 22-run victory on the final morning of an intriguing first Test in Chittagong.

Bangladesh began the day needing 33 to beat England for the first time in a Test match, with two wickets standing.

They calmly added 10 runs before Taijul Islam was given out lbw after a review.

In the same over, Ben Stokes removed last man Shafiul Islam, who was given out lbw and failed to overturn it on review as Bangladesh were dismissed for 263, with Sabbir Rahman unbeaten on 64.

Bangladesh had won only seven of their previous 93 Tests and had beaten only Zimbabwe and an under-strength West Indies.
