Bangladesh A 117 for 2 (Siddique 49*, Hasan 24*) v Warwickshire
Bangladesh A made steady progress in the 31 overs that were possible on the first day of their three-day tour match against Warwickshire at Edgbaston. Junaid Siddique was in sight of his half-century, ending the day on 49, with his side on 117 for 2 after Warwickshire sent them in.
The young pair of Lee Daggett and Andrew Miller had picked up a wicket each during the curtailed day. Both the wickets fell to catches, while Siddique plotted a patient course and by the close he and partner Raqibul Hasan had put on 43 between them in an unbroken third-wicket stand. Hasan had reached 24.
