CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh (AP) England's Moeen Ali took two wickets in the last over before lunch on Friday to leave host Bangladesh in trouble at 29-2 in its first innings on day two of the first test.

After quickly wrapping up England's first innings for 293, Bangladesh almost survived unscathed through to lunch on a wicket offering plenty of turn and variable bounce.

However off-spinner Ali took two wickets in his first over to flip the complexion of the contest.

He bowled opener Imrul Kayes (21) with a quicker delivery that didn't turn much as Kayes expected.

Mominul Haque was out for a duck on the third ball he faced, induced by an extra bounce as he poked a shot to gully.

Earlier, teenage off-spinner Mehedi Hasan returned figures of 6-80 as England fell short of 300.

The left-arm spinner took two wickets on the second day including the wicket of Chris Woakes (36) with the first ball of the day.
