CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh (AP) Bangladesh played aggressively to reach 86-2 in its second innings at lunch on the fourth day of the first test against England on Sunday, chasing 286 for victory.

The hosts bowled out England for 240 early Sunday to create an achievable run target.

Openers Imrul Kayes and Tamim Iqbal made a fluent 35 before Iqbal was deceived by the turn and bounce on a Moeen Ali delivery and got an inside edge to short leg.

Kayes and Mominul Haque then combined for a 46 runs in just 10.2 overs, but Kayes fell two overs short of lunch as he top-edged a sweep on an Adil Rashid ball, with Joe Root at slip making the catch behind the wicketkeeper.

Haque and Mahmudullah were on 19 and 4 runs respectively at lunch.
