Bangla fight back

Bangla fight back

Double trouble: Jonathan Trott acknowledges his  team-mates after completing his double century. AFP Trott batted more than eight hours for his 226 in England's first innings 505 all out to become the seventh England batsman to score a double hundred at Lord’s.
He finally fell victim to Shahadat Hossain, who wrapped up the England innings with three quick wickets to finish with five for 98 and earn the distinction of becoming the first Bangladesh player to win a place on the Lord's honours' board.

The Bangladesh top order responded with a combination of resolute defence interspersed with some cavalier carves outside the off-stump to reach 172 for two at the close.
England lost their way in the morning session before a good crowd on a sunny day, crawling from 362 for four overnight to 456 for six.
