Scorecard

Bangladesh A's bowlers staged a superb comeback against a young Kent side, reducing them to 40 for 6, before a late order rally boosted them to 123 for 8 by the close. Syed Rasel was the star with the ball, claiming for 5 for 35 after the Bangladesh batting had been undone by Martin Saggers, who returned 5 for 48 including Tushar Imran for a blazing 86.

There was little sign of the wicket surge to follow when Bangladesh progressed to 62 for 1 after winning the toss but they soon slumped to 84 for 4. Tushar staged a recovery in partnership with Nazimuddin, the pair adding 75. Tushar stroked 16 fours in his 90-ball innings, before Saggers had him caught by the debutant Neil Dexter, and Nazimuddin was eventually caught off David Stiff.

The tail did not offer much resistance and neither did Kent's top order as Rasel and Shahadat Hossain caused problems with the new ball. Michael Carberry and Kevin Jones - another debutant - registered golden ducks and three figures was a long way off at 40 for 6.

However, Saggers produced his best impersonation of an allrounder when he put bat-to-ball in a positive 37. Paul Dixey - a 17-year-old wicketkeeping making his first appearance - played a gusty supporting role with 24 before he was Rasel's fifth wicket and Bangladesh will fancy their chances of a first innings lead.
