Bangladesh claimed ten wickets in an electric final session to secure an historic first Test victory over England and a 1-1 share of the series. That it came after England's openers had put on a century stand was the final twist in a remarkable match and only heightened the sense of their achievement. The crowning moment was delivered by the teenager Mehedi Hasan, who finished with another six-wicket haul, 12 in the match and the best figures by a Bangladeshi to spark scenes of jubilation at Mirpur.
This is the first victory of the Tigers against one of the two oldest Test nations of the history. England is only the third Test side after Zimbabwe and the West Indies against which Bangladesh recorded win after getting Test status in 2000.
