Finn wrecks Bangladesh


Finn, playing his first Test in England at the headquarters of his county Middlesex, confirmed the excellent impression he had made on Friday with three wickets, including two in eight balls.

He finished the day with four for 75 as Bangladesh struggled to 237 for seven, in replay to England's first innings 505, when the players left the field for the third and final time for bad light.  Only 28.5 overs were bowled after steady rain prevented any play before mid-afternoon and the required allocation of 90 had been cut to 50. Further time can be made up on the final two days of the match.
