Tamim Iqbal reached a memorable hundred on the fourth day at Lord's, giving his team the spark of inspiration they needed after being asked to follow on as they battled impressively to 328 for 5, a lead of 105, while England were made to toil in the sunshine. Tamim was well-supported by Imrul Kayes, who reached a milestone of his own with his maiden Test half-century as the pair put on 185 - a record opening stand for Bangladesh - as the visitors recovered well after being bowled out for 282. Late wickets dented their hopes of securing a draw, but Bangladesh continue to show that they are no pushovers.

Tamim's hundred was the first by a Bangladesh batsman in England, and his will be the second Bangladeshi name etched onto the honours board at Lord's after Shahadat Hossain made his mark with 5 for 98 in England's first innings. Tamim suggested as much as he motioned enthusiastically to his team-mates to get his name on the board as soon as he reached three figures with a dismissive drive over mid on.

He struck 15 fours and two sixes in reaching his century from just 94 balls - the fastest by a Bangladesh batsman in Tests, the fastest at Lord's since Mohammad Azharuddin's effort in 1990, and just the sixth Bangladesh Test hundred outside of subcontinental conditions - midway through the afternoon session, and though Steven Finn struck back to remove both openers in a testing spell just before tea, Bangladesh's middle order picked up where they left off with some stubborn resistance.

Whether they would do be able to do so was an open question when James Anderson and Tim Bresnan ensured that Bangladesh's tail folded within the first hour of play. But England's bowlers found things much harder thereafter, with Tamim and Kayes taking their opening stand to 61 before lunch.

The openers did not have everything their own way, but luck was with them as good balls flew past the edge of the bat rather than off it and Kayes, usually content to sit back and let his partner do the bulk of the run scoring, on this occasion matched Tamim shot for shot early on to bring up the fifty in the tenth over.

Tamim was as pugnacious as ever, and he greeted Graeme Swann's first ball of the day by charging down the track as the offspinner's opening over was dispatched for 10 runs. At the other end, Kayes moved into the 40s with a couple of streaky shots behind square after the lunch interval, but was totally muted as he approached his maiden fifty, sitting on 49 for 15 balls before he finally reached the mark with a cleanly-struck sweep to deep square leg.

His nerves had no effect on Tamim, however, who, after being outscored by his opening partner early on, switched gears as he neared his hundred. Swann's first over after lunch was dispatched for 17, including two massive slog-sweeps over midwicket, and Tamim reached his hundred in the 35th over of the innings with three fours in one over from Bresnan, the third a dismissive drive over mid on to raise three figures.

Bresnan was replaced with Finn, but even with men positioned out on the hook Tamim continued to play his shots, and eventually paid the price as he failed to control a swivel-hook and picked out Jonathan Trott at deep backward square. Four overs later Finn was at it again, finding disconcerting bounce from a good length as Ian Bell held onto a sharp catch off the face of the bat at short leg.

The double strike exposed Bangladesh's vulnerable middle order, but Junaid Siddique and Jahurul Islam picked up the mantle with a 100-run partnership for the third wicket. Siddique, in particular, was given a thorough examination by England's pace attack, and throughout his innings faced very little that bounced in his half of the wicket.

Both batsmen were willing to take their scoring opportunities when they arose, though, and a loft down the ground by Jahurul to take the score past 200 opened the floodgates as the batsmen cashed in with a flurry of boundaries. England responded with a short-pitched assault that had both batsmen ducking and weaving, but as the ball got older and the bowlers began to tire, Strauss was forced to use Trott's gentle dobbers.

The change brought a dismissal against the run of play, however, as shortly after Siddique brought up his half-century Trott wobbled one in to Jahurul and the ball ricocheted off the inside edge onto the pad, looping up for Trott to take a sliding return catch and pick up his first international wicket.

Mohammad Ashraful again promised much with a couple of confident shots before he was undone by a beauty from Anderson with the new ball late in the day. England also removed nightwatchman Shahadat in the penultimate over to bring captain Shakib al Hasan to the crease, but Bangladesh can remain immensely proud of their efforts. With Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah still to come it is not beyond the realms of possibility that they could leave Lord's with honours even.

black will take no othe hue. Trypical Bangladeshi shows every1 again that "far distance between wht to be happened and wht is happened."----------however take lesson fm them "How to hold consistency quite for long time", they shows us how to lose alaways after showings a drama in beginning.

this is really a outstanding performance from bangladeshi players. i am not giving all credit to tamim. the credit should go to imrul, jahurul and siddiqui... cause after cracking on opening side generally bangladeshi side would crashed... but the middle order showed their great patience in their time...... bravo bangladesh.. i love my country, i feel my country from KSA... i really miss to see this extreme better game..

Posted by Frauenarzt on (May 31, 2010, 9:07 GMT)

Its not unfair to see Bangladesh playing semifinal in incoming WC in subcontinent. just see the pipeline of the truely genious batting line up Tamim, Sakib, Mahmudullah, Mushfiq, Junaid, Jaharul,and many mores .Everyone knows how to make century in their own day and the most important things for Bangladesh is that if one of the batsman failed to make runs than another one take this responsibility. thats fine.

Posted by   on (May 31, 2010, 9:02 GMT)

Impressive and memorable...

Posted by Sonoual on (May 31, 2010, 8:19 GMT)

BD are doing great job. I think selectors should have been Shaharyar Nafees & Alok Kapali instead of Mohammad Ashraful & Junaid. And Syed Rassel should be picked up instead of Rubel Hossain. This team would have been performed well. Why Nafees is being dropped again and again. He is a class act & very good test cricketer. Junaid is t20 and one day player. Ashraful should be given some rest so that get some form. By this combination Bangladesh will reach the pinnacle gradually. They are already on way of improvement.

Posted by Faruk-Ahmed on (May 31, 2010, 7:54 GMT)

Good Luck Bangladesh. Good Luck Tamim. Your are our hero. Good Luck Imrul. For your great try. Good Luck Jahurul. For your assistance. Good Luck Ashraful, For your battle. Good Luck Junaid, For your outstanding performance. Wish you Shakib, to make another century in Lord's. I love my country. I love my team. I love my players. I love you guys.

Well played Tamim. You are really one of the best young star now. Just keep playing your natural attacking game.

Tamim! job vey well done... congratulation!!! Shakib now it's your turn! you have to show and prove your potential to the english...... all the very best wishes for Bangladesh team..... go tigers go....

Posted by Clive_Dunn on (May 31, 2010, 7:25 GMT)

Onions is injured, won't play this series and will be lucky to feature at all this summer.

Well played Bangladesh, good to see them competing. When the ball isn't swinging or seaming they are a decent batting team as they like to hit through the line of the ball. Seems to be more overcast today, so we'll see if anything happens in the air today - that Lords pitch is a bit of a pudding though.

Shahadat's bowling yelp is a bit annoying though, every time he bowls my dog thinks a puppy has been stepped on somewhere.

Posted by nauman421 on (May 31, 2010, 7:25 GMT)

Tamim has shown his class, no doubt and i hope he will be a very good batsman in the future but unfortunately he cant be compared with Saeed Anwar. Saeed Anwar has his own class, brilliant and majestic. Tamim will have to born again to match again.

Posted by ShamimH on (May 31, 2010, 6:53 GMT)

Well let us not get ahead of ourselves. Bangladesh still has some ways to go, but let us acknowledge that we have come a long way. Recall the previous test series in England did not even last more than 3 or 4 days.

And those who keep harping we do not need anymore Test Cricket playing nations - wake up!! It is the businesses that support Cricket and they want a larger base and without additional audiences the game cannot be supported. And then why stop with Bangladesh - bring in other promising teams. And compare that reach with soccer - the WC finals will have 32 nations and over billion world wide audience. I am sure the Cricket Board would want the game to thrive!!

Posted by saladin3 on (May 31, 2010, 6:38 GMT)

Great efforts by the Bangladeshi boys! So far so good! still lot of things to do in this match to earn a draw! Junaid, Shakib,Mushfiq,Riyadh has to perform well today to finish the match with pride! Go Tigers Go!!!

Posted by vhabuk_bd on (May 31, 2010, 6:38 GMT)

It is fact that the day would be only for bangladesh, but it is not due to Ashraful's dismisal. I think it is not wise to blame ashraful because the delivery was superb and any batsman of world cricket may be out with this type of ball, if he threw his wicket playing bad shot we could blame him. But yet we sitll have not left hope to save the match...

Posted by Sadequl on (May 31, 2010, 6:37 GMT)

Thanks Boycott for giving the push back which was required at times but for sure we cannot ignore the improvement of new Bengal kids. Most old boys left the ground & new kids are taking over. They are keen to develop & can give better mileage to test their real ability. They might not be t20, 1day or ashes champ but judging their recent performance it's really visible isn't it but reality talks differently.

Posted by ssid on (May 31, 2010, 6:25 GMT)

I completely agree with ssarka11. Tamim is tamim and he is no Saeed Anwar. The number of ODI centuries Saeed scored, his record against Australia, his 194 ODI and his strike rate at a time when the players were much slower in scoring are reflection on his greatness. Tamim records are not comparable to that of Seed Anwar and that despite the fact that he played 24 of his 76 ODI are against countries like Ireland, Canada, Zimbabwe etc. Barring a miracle, I don't see Tamim macthing Saeed Anwar's feats.

Posted by Abnormaldehyde on (May 31, 2010, 6:20 GMT)

Tamim is the best left handed batter that world cricket hav produced in recent years. we got Tamim,sakib,naeem,mahmudullah,mushfiq,razzak who can constantly play well. Just need a couple of good pace man and a reasonable wicket keeper(mushfiq is perfect as a batsman) and this team will be a great one. also Mushfiq shld be promoted up in the batting order. A batsman of his talent should not be at number 7. He is a classical batsman and better than Ashraful.

Posted by Sabbir007 on (May 31, 2010, 6:16 GMT)

I have some comments in where some fans blame ashraful for his dismissal. Look guys, that was an excellent ball and any batsman in the world now want the help of luck to survive that one. Unfortunately, Ashraful is now one of most unlucky player in Bangladesh. But, Tamim...............Bravo, man, Bravo.

Posted by zozo11 on (May 31, 2010, 6:14 GMT)

luk...this the true face of Bangladesh top order...if they can play well..thn anything could b possible in their day......isn`t it???????hpe they can continue the performance...:):)

Posted by Jipster on (May 31, 2010, 6:00 GMT)

In the last series (in BD) I think I said I wanted to see a BD batsman make 100, and from 300 balls to prove to themselves they had the concentratiion for Test match cricket. But from less than 100 balls !! ... that's good too :) It's good to see BD fighting. It's good for this match, and for test match cricket in general. We have all been waiting for BD to not only prove, but believe they are Test match worthy. When BD were last in England, both games were over in less than 3 days - day 5 in this 1st match of this series (OK, there was a few rain delays) is a few hours away. That proves the massive improvement in BD cricket since then. Keep believing, but also, keep achieving. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Best wishes from England.

Has Tendulkar or Sehwag scored a century in Lords? NO Mirror Mirror-Ian Chappell....

Posted by Ruhel_Moscow on (May 31, 2010, 5:39 GMT)

Why British people r so silent now.Because Bd proved tht they r not playing just for prestigious loose.Congrats Tamim to make english attack as ordinary.Good cricket against ordinary bowling and ordinary umpiring(only asoka).Good luck BD.................

Posted by was33m on (May 31, 2010, 4:27 GMT)

where the hell onions has gone???...... he is a much improved bowler and I still dont understand that inspite of playing such an attacking ckt in 20-20 why did ENG choose to play one xtra batsman rather than a bowler.....

Posted by Gypcyman on (May 31, 2010, 3:48 GMT)

Tamim, you played beautifully but ash ! what the hell you are doing? tamim is joniour player than you. Ashraful you must learn something from tamim, how he score! sakib, now it's your time to prove yourself and got a century and also for Rahim and Mahmudullah to score some run. Just watching WE ARE BANGLADESHI...

GOOD LUCK>>>>>>>

Posted by   on (May 31, 2010, 3:30 GMT)

TAMIM ROCKZZZ as usual and good cricket by Junaid, Kayes, Jahurul and expect more from them!

Posted by banglar_tiger on (May 31, 2010, 3:20 GMT)

One of the best knock by a BANGLADESHI batsman...congrats Tamim. Now its the turn of the captain and the remaining batsman to count the tamim's innings by ensuring that Bangladesh survives at least two session on the fifth day. Best of LUCK tigers....

Posted by _NEUTRAL_Fan_ on (May 31, 2010, 1:56 GMT)

Good work by Bang. As I said the day b-4, English attack doesn't look threatening enough when the ball doesn't swing. This is something they should address if they want a chance at the ashes.

Posted by   on (May 31, 2010, 1:41 GMT)

Congratulations Tamim & Bangladesh! Fantastic knock I wish I could have watched it! It should be a very exciting final day. Bangladesh have 2 recognised batsmen at the crease and with Mahmadullah & Rahim to come (both have test 100's I believe?) could bat England out of it. I hope they survive the first hour, attack the second, set a target & put pressure on England. I'm not sure they have the bowling firepower to bowl them out in 2 sessions though! Good luck to both teams... but go the 'Desh!!!

Posted by   on (May 31, 2010, 1:09 GMT)

I just hope that Bangladesh plays for two more sessions tomorrow and at least try to save the test match.And they have it in them to do that.Patience is the key

Posted by ssarka11 on (May 31, 2010, 0:57 GMT)

i noticed three points from all the comments, one is tamim is compared with saeed anwar, second someone mentioned to upset england, third someone thinking to loose with pride. i m not agree with any of them, tamim is tamim and he is his standard, with all respect to saeed anwar, as bangladeshi we dont wanna compare ourselves with anyone from pakistan. we ll set our standard and we ll move forward as we did. we are not upsetting anyone, our players deserve the best and they have the potential. we are not there to loosing with respect, we are playing for win. we should believe in ourselves and we are equal to others, above all we are proud of ourselves as bangladeshi. The lesson is given by our cricket team, very useful for our nation, learn, develop and deliver. who knows we might become the best. come on tigers of bangladesh, we can do it and we will do it.

Posted by LawrieCAdelaide on (May 31, 2010, 0:38 GMT)

For an Australian, it is very encouraging to see that Bangladesh continues to improve. Tamim Iqbal is showing he is a class act and the others in the team have pulled their weight since Day 1. World Cricket needs Bangladesh to be a good side and it is obvious the improvement in the side is making in the last 12 months. Find another class bowler or two and you'll be around the mark soon. Be patient Bangla fans -- a win will come soon, have faith.

Posted by realredbaron on (May 30, 2010, 23:48 GMT)

@ZsZs, people who had the slightest of the doubts that giving Bangladesh test status has harmed the cause of cricket, were just thrown over the ropes by Tamim at Lords. When England reaches 200/2, some Englishman had started asking how a country of 150 million cricket fanatics is not at the top of the ranking! Well cricket was never a popular game in Bangladesh until in the 90s. The current Bangladeshi team might even play as an U23 side in an U23 tournament. Basically these are the first geenration of cricketers who was brought up in a cricket crazed environment. That's why they are doing pretty well for a country where cricket is only 20-30 years old. It's ridiculous to compare with England where cricket has been played for over centuries.

Posted by usman_nile1994 on (May 30, 2010, 22:20 GMT)

Tamim played brilliantly. He is the best bangladeshi batsman i have seen. But i think Ashraful shoud be dropped. He never plays well againt big teams. And Shahriar Nafees should replace him. Then Bangla batting would be better. Ashraful is the only man who doesn't deserve a place. And for England i think they are goint to be whitewashed by Australia. Their batting is great but their fast bowlers are ineffective especially Bresnan. Their line and lenght was very bad today. Finn is a bright prospect and anderson is also good but they could only bowl bangladesh with the help of rain. Bresnan should be dropped. And also if England want to win Ashes they should go with a five bowler attack. Lastly i would say Bangladesh has improved a lot in a short time. They only need some better fast bowlers like Shahadat Hossain

Posted by Bengali-Tiger007 on (May 30, 2010, 21:38 GMT)

Being a British Bengali watching Tamim write his name on the honours list at Lords ''the home of cricket'', has made me the proudest man in Essex! This test has been a proper test and it has been faire too. I like these two umpires compared to the jokers such as Hill & Tucker. Imrul, Jahurul, Siddique have also impressed me alot. I can only hope that the Deshis get a very good lead by tea tomorrow and force the game to be drawn. But Tamim is the best opening batsmen I have seen Since Saed Anwar. Goodluck Bangladesh.

Posted by CMIS on (May 30, 2010, 21:36 GMT)

just to preempt those who, in case of a draw, will say BD escaped because of the weather: think about this..... if there was no rain and the sun was shining, BD could have batted on throughout the third day on a flat pitch. We all know that this england attack makes hay when the sun hides, so there are two sides to the coin. If Bangladesh do manage to bat half the day tomorrow, score 150 more and the match is drawn, they would have thoroughly deserved it.

Posted by nikhildevdesai on (May 30, 2010, 21:10 GMT)

ONE GREAT INNING does not make team "confident", "mature", "talented". Relax guys, don't jinx it. I am proud that Bangladesh have fought back into this game but they need to consistently play well to be called a test team and that means, playing Test for entire five days, and scoring more than 350 in innings. Don't get me wrong, but they still need a couple quality bowlers and Ashraful needs to go.

Posted by shonkhochil on (May 30, 2010, 21:05 GMT)

Another good day for Bangladesh in this test match.. Congratulations to all BD player.. I would like to say something to the 'Ordinary Shewag' fans & those who thinks Bangladesh should not play test cricket.. I know you guys won't congratulate the players for playing well..you will only pop up when we have a bad day in field.. Just think in this way...if you total the number of individual player test match experience of whole Bangladesh team it will be less than number of test match played by Tendulkar alone!! I am hopeful that these player will stick together in the team & Bangladesh will play better & better... there will be bad days in games & 'Ordinary Shewag' & some other people will pop up those time but we will always be with our team.. Hopefully you guys will play better tomorrow & give us & all cricket fans a good end of this test match...

Posted by Sabbir007 on (May 30, 2010, 21:00 GMT)

Good luck Bangladesh!This time try to draw the test to show that you are on the right way of improvement.

Posted by ZsZs on (May 30, 2010, 20:51 GMT)

Former England skipper, Nasser Hussain clearly states in post match interview (on Sky Sports) that Bangladesh deserves to play test cricket in Lords. This is acceptance of Bangladesh's credentials.

Posted by plmx on (May 30, 2010, 20:36 GMT)

The amount of excessive time that the English commentators on Sky Sports spent discussing the forthcoming Ashes tour whilst Bangladesh were batting today confirmed to me that Bangladesh must have batted well.

Posted by   on (May 30, 2010, 20:33 GMT)

Bangladesh has been doing great job in this test match except 1st day of the match.Tamim Iqbal was briliant and Imrul Kayes was excellent.Hope,It will continue for Bengal Tigers.

Posted by Vindaliew on (May 30, 2010, 20:25 GMT)

Those late wickets might not be as useful for England as they think, although the breakthrough against Jahurul was very useful. Ashraful is sadly out of form, while Shahadat was a nightwatchman. I think if the pitch continues this way, a lead of over 200 might be possible, and then who knows? A bit of evening of the odds weather wise, with English batsmen being forced to bat a few balls at a time in the gloomy overcast skies against the Bangladesh spinners, and suddenly we have a very very interesting game!

Posted by gottalovetheraindance on (May 30, 2010, 20:12 GMT)

some1 was boasting that the match would be over in 3 days but thankfully the tigers forced him 2 eat his own words bcause of the fight that they have shown . it wood b really great if they could pull off an upset tomorrow. if they can keep a cool head without getting 2 defensive & they dangle the carrot in front of Strauss's nose ( say 175 -200 just b4 lunch) who knows what can happen? mayb Shakib wood have given England just enough rope 2 hang them selves.

this knock was just fab!!! i was really nervous especially with his injury...but he played as if he has no injury!!! congr8s tamim...n best of luck bd...just play well (honestly even if bd lose wont sadden me up :D)

Posted by   on (May 30, 2010, 19:43 GMT)

well, its good to see the visitors to at least fightback in the game though its still a long way to go. but it made me really estonished to see shahadat to play before sakib, mushfique and mahmudullah. if the team think, his fist innings batting performance will make him a good middle order batsman or even a good night-watch-man, thn they must live in the heven of the stupids. The team management should have taken the target of taking at least 100 runs lead along with no more than 3 wickets down; instead of letting shahadat to come. And everybody knows it is useless to say anything about ashrafool the so called tallent of BD team.

anyway, now it lies on the skiper to prove himself once again and mushfiq & mahmudullah to sparkle togather. After 5 wickets down its very clear that they must have to contribute and definately all three of them, and will have to make more 250ish before the next lunch to put the pressure back on the english side.

so, Being optimistic eventhough a tough job

Posted by old.pinocchio on (May 30, 2010, 19:29 GMT)

Tamim did a pretty good job, and most others gave him company.

It seems England bowlers are unbeatable when the weather is favorable, but they have to struggle much in sunny conditions.

I remember last tour of Bangladesh in England, it feels like decades have passed since then and they have buried all fear and frustration.

Congrats, tigers! You boys are learning pretty fast!

Mr. McGorium from yesterday: Former England Skipper Nazir Hussein clearly stated that Bangladesh deserve to be in Lord's playing Test Cricket. Please don't talk like that anymore. Be positive.

A fantastic day of cricket. Both team worked hard and let the viewers wait for a fascinating 5th day. I just wonder, Bangladesh did it.

Great Day's play of test Cricket.. very exciting and engrossing stuff. These kind of contest between bat and ball make test cricket worth Watching. Bangladesh you deserve a pat on the back. Keep on working like this and soon you will be up there with the other test playing nations....

superb effort by the top order of Bangaldesh in second innings. Tamim & Kayes have shown gr8 temperament & skills. Hoping to see them turn their 50s & 100s into bigger scores in future. Good luck Bangladesh for the last day!

Ashraful ruined the day for Bangladesh. Otherwise they were in great position to draw the match. A draw at Lords wouldn't be a bad result
