England enforce follow-on against Bangladesh

London: England captain Andrew Strauss enforced the follow-on on Sunday after his pace bowlers wrapped up the Bangladesh first innings within the first hour of the fourth day of the first Test at Lord`s.

Bangladesh, who needed 306 to avoid being asked to bat again, were all out for 282 after resuming on 237 for seven.

James Anderson took two of the three wickets to fall, bowling Shahadat Hossain (20) and Mahmudullah (17) to end with four for 78. Tim Bresnan finished the innings with his first wicket of the match when Rubel Hossain (9) sliced a comfortable catch to Alastair Cook at third slip.

Steven Finn failed to complete a five-wicket haul on his Lord`s debut, bowling five unsuccessful overs and falling twice on to the pitch after his delivery stride.

Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes, who put on 88 for the first wicket in Bangladesh`s first innings, again began brightly to bring up their 50 partnership from 59 balls.

At lunch, Bangaldesh were 61 without loss with Tamim on 31 and Kayes on 30.
