That is all from me, Sahil Dutta, Andrew McGlashan and Liam Brickhill, thanks for all the emails. I hope you join us for the second Test in Dhaka on Saturday morning at 9.30 (3.30 GMT).

Andrew McGlashan's match bulletin is well worth a viewing.

Graeme Swann wins the man of the match award for his ten-wickets, earning himself a cheeky $1000 for his efforts. Swann thanks the Barmy Army for their support and says England were 'fully justified' in not enforcing the follow-on.

Alastair Cook praises 'the lads for sticking to their task', and says the contentious follow-on decision was made to give the bowlers some rest.

Bob Willis is leading the presentation ceremony and is sounds thrilled to be doing so. Shakib Al Hasan says Bangladesh showed their character in the latter half of the game but reckons the track didn't turn enough and regrets his decision to field first. He says he's looking forward to giving it another shot at Dhaka.

Andrew Miller, who is a bit of a Twitter if we're honest, has this conclusion "6-0, 6-1, 5-7, 6-7, 6-2. In other words, England win by 181 runs, after turning a straight-sets knock-out into a five-set grind. Hard yakka"

England win by 181 runs Phew, that was hard for them. For three sessions, after lunch yesterday and up to lunch today Bangladesh were all over England. As is the way with emerging cricketing nations, good partnerships are all too often followed by a clump of wickets and that happened in both innings here.

Swann to Md Naeem, OUT

that's it! Swann has 10 in the match and England, finally, win! Naeem clipped it high down to midwicket where Carberry took a good diving catch. It's been a long, hard graft for England, Bangladesh did very well in the final innings.

Swann needs one wicket to become the first English offspinner since Jim Lakes to take 10 wickets in the match. He better hurry though
