Mushfiqur Rahim and Imrul Kayes collected half centuries in the second match to try and help Bangladesh level the three-match series at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Rahim hit 76 off 88 balls, while Kayes was more patient for his 63. Together, they added 90 for the third wicket until Kayes drove Graeme Swann hard through the covers only to be out to a great diving catch by Paul Collingwood.

It took another good catch to remove Rahim, who’d hit five boundaries in his near run-a-ball knock.

Rahim tried to flick Tim Bresnan down the leg side but lobbed it to mid on where Luke Wright made a sliding catch for 211-5 in the 44th over.

Bresnan bowled Mahmudullah for 27 at the start of the 49th over, but Naeem Islam (18 not out) and Suhrawardi Shuvo (14 not out) blasted 25 off the last 11 balls to post a competitive total.

Opener Tamim Iqbal, who scored a century in the first match on Sunday, was first out for 30 to Stuart Broad.

Bresnan finished with 3-51 and Swann claimed 2-52.

England won the first ODI at the same ground by six wickets.
