Bangladesh A 46 for 2 trail Derbyshire 298 for 6 dec (Rogers 101) by 256 runs
Derbyshire became the third team in three matches to declare their first innings against Bangladesh A, having used up their 100 overs just after Chris Rogers brought up his century. A half-century from John Sadler and Dan Birch's 40 also helped to propel Derbyshire to 298 for 6 after choosing to bat.
The pick of Bangladesh's bowlers was Mosharraf Hussain, who took 3 for 69 from 22 overs, while there was a wicket each for Dolar Mahmud, Rubel Hossain and Shakib Al Hasan.
The visitors then lost two quick wickets, both of them to a Kevin Dean-Thomas Poynton combination. But from 12 for 2, Shakib and Junaid Siddique were mounting some resistance, to end the day 46 for 2.
