Newcomer Hasan takes 5 on debut vs. England
CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh (AP) Teenage offspinner Mehedi Hasan claimed five wickets on debut as Bangladesh restricted England to 258-7 on the opening day of the first test on Thursday.
The 18-year-old Hasan returned figures of 5-64 and tormented the English batsmen on a wicket that offered plenty of turn and variable bounce.
Moeen Ali top scored for England with 68 after surviving five video reviews while Jonny Bairstow made a gritty 52 to help England propel past 200 runs.
At stumps Chris Woakes who looked solid, was batting on 36 with Adil Rashid on 5.
Left arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan complemented Hasan's five wickets with 2-46.
