    I reckon Bangladesh are going to win this game if they can score another 125 runs.

    Alastair Cook, one of England's finest players ever, is finding it hard going here. That tells you how difficult it is. Woakes and Rashid were the real model of how to play. You have to be patient, defend well and put away the bad ball.

    It's all set but who is going to get the wickets for England tomorrow?

    What a day that's been. Some horrible shots - Moeen, Mahmudullah - to lose wickets, the recovery job from Woakes and Rashid with the bat after Root laid the foundations, a cracking performance from Kayes putting Bangladesh in the driving seat. It's twisted all over the place but Bangladesh are still the favourites, despite the end to the day.

    There were a few things about England's bowling that surprised me a bit. They allowed Bangladesh to rotate the strike and the run-rate was too high. 

    I think Stokes should have bowled a bit more. He only bowled five overs when he bowled so well in the first innings.

  6. 'Another batsman has stepped up today'

    The way Bangladesh collapsed in that first innings, someone would have said something in the dressing room. It's another batsman that has stepped up today. There's something in Bangladesh that wants to avoid that collapse again.

  7. Post update

    Ansari ends the day as England's most successful spinner with figures of 2-33. Rashid has taken a bit of tap, finishing 0-30 from his five so far, while Moeen is 0-34 from eight.

    Bangladesh will be disappointed with that finish. They did all the hard work and set it up but Mahmudullah, who batted brilliantly throughout, to have a waft like that at the end has left Bangladesh vulnerable with a new batsman coming in in the morning.

    However, they are positioned well and if they can get near a lead of 200 it will be a very tasty finale.

    That was an extraordinary shot from Mahmudullah to end a thrilling, at times bizarre, day of cricket.

  11. Close of play

    Ban 152-3 (Kayes 59, Ansari 2-33)

    And with that wicket, that is that for the day. Bangladesh lead by 128.

  12. WICKET

    Mahmudullah b Ansari 47 (Ban 152-3)

    He's bowled him! What was he doing there? One over left, and Mahmudullah has had a wild yahoo at Ansari, missed it and it's smashed into his stumps. Neither batsmen looked comfortable in that over, not from Ansari's bowling - it was like they had it in their heads that they needed to survive and see the day out.

    If Bangladesh were to win you'd have to call a National Holiday, wouldn't you?

  14. Another fashion icon in the TMS box

  15. Ban 150-2

    Ten minutes left in the day, and Mahmudullah has a dart down the crease to get a single and bring up Bangladesh's 150. It's been such a good innings because he's barely done anything extravagant. He's just worked the singles that England's field has allowed him. That's better from Moeen though, who turns one perilously close to Kayes' outside edge.

    Harry McCrea: Rashid's bowling currently looking less threatening than mine.

    Neil Virani: Rashid needs to land it on a spot 6 out of 6, a hittable ball every over is death in a low scorer.

  17. Ban 147-2

    Ben Stokes

    Overthrows are very much the sign of a long day. Stokes has a wild shy at the non strikers and the diving fielder trying to back up can't get to the ball in time. Rashid comes around the wicket to Kayes and gets a leading edge. It pops up high into the air - that really bounced on Kayes - but it drops to safety. Kayes sweeps his way out of trouble, picking up a boundary, before he reverse sweeps just in front of short leg.

  18. Ban 138-2

    Lead by 114

    Jos Buttler has been on the field for much of the afternoon session - Joe Root is currently off the field with a stomach upset.

    It's starting to wind down now, as Kayes throws a full blooded sweep at a fuller Moeen ball, misses and overbalances. He works a single through midwicket before Mahmudullah stays deep in his crease to see out the over.

    I am feeling somewhat gloomy about England's prospects. The bowling attack looks a bit toothless.

    The Bangladesh crowd is happy in anticipation of an epic victory, perhaps tomorrow or on Monday, although the unexpected has happened in this series so you never know.

  20. Ban 135-2

    There's still a big crowd inside the ground, cheering as Mahmudullah works Rashid away for a single. Rashid tosses it up, trying to get Kayes to go the aerial route, but he punches it into the off side for another run. He can't consistently get that line right though, and Bangladesh find it easy to keep rotating the strike.
