Bangladesh A 215 for 3 (Iqbal 78, Nazimuddin 75) trail Leicestershire 354 for 4 dec (Allenby 138*, Taylor 51) by 139

Bangladesh A's batsmen did a fair job of replying to Leicestershire's 354 for 4 declared, closing at 215 for 3 on the second day.

Tamim Iqbal and Nazimuddin both reached their seventies to propel the tourists at Grace Road after Leicestershire's overnight declaration. The pair put on 128 for the second wicket after Junaid Siddique had fallen for 25 in an opening partnership of 44 with Iqbal.

Iqbal's innings ended on 78 when he sent a return catch to Jigar Naik, while Nazimuddin fell 22 runs later, one of a pair of wickets for Daniel Rowe who had also made the first breakthrough with Siddique.

Raqiubul Hassan and Naeem Islam moved them on before stumps.
