Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow rode their luck to post crucial half-centuries but Bangladesh's teenage debutant Mehedi Hasan confounded England with spin on the opening day of the first Test in Chittagong.

Moeen was given out three times by umpire Kumar Dharmasena but successfully overturned each decision, while Bangladesh spurned two reviews on the left-hander, who was finally out for 68 from 170 balls.

He put on an 88-run stand with Bairstow, who was dropped on 13 before going on to post 52 as England's middle-order resistance helped them close on 258 for seven on a pitch that is already offering plenty of turn.

All seven wickets to fall on day one came from the spinners, with 18-year-old off-break bowler Mehedi deeply impressive on his international bow as figures of five for 64 from 33 overs will attest.



Southgate praises Lingard's 'outstanding' England debut

Gareth Southgate was full of praise for Jesse Lingard after the Manchester United winger made his first England appearance in Saturday's 2-0 win over Malta at Wembley.

For me, a real positive was Jesse Lingard. I think he had an outstanding debut. He really linked the play well and looked a real threat.

That's why we wanted to give him the start. He's got a strong mentality. He's an exciting player.

The stage was made for him really. He's enjoyed Wembley.

Southgate baffled by Rooney boos

Wayne Rooney deserves better than to be booed by his own supporters, Gareth Southgate insisted after the England captain was singled out for criticism by sections of Wembley during Saturday's 2-0 win over Malta.

I don't understand it [the boos], but that seems to be the landscape. I've got no idea how that's supposed to help him, for sure.

His experience and leadership has been crucial throughout this week. It's fascinating to get an insight into his world over the last 10 days. Every debate seems to focus on him.

The onus on him is enormous and the criticism of him is at times unfair. He ploughs on and captains his country with pride.

Brooking urges FA to stick with Southgate

Sir Trevor Brooking believes Gareth Southgate is the right choice to be the next permanent England manager, despite persistent speculation linking the Football Association with an approach for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Southgate enjoyed the perfect start to his four-game caretaker spell on Saturday as England beat Malta 2-0 at Wembley, and Brooking thinks the 46-year-old is the ideal candidate to build for the 2018 World Cup in Russia and beyond.

I think he should get the job. In the next three games hopefully he does enough.

I am confident that then he'll get the two years taking us up to the World Cup.

And with the players coming through - because there are some younger ones, it's about the timing of when he brings them in - I think then he could kick on for another two years as well.

At the stage the FA are, with St George's Park and everything, it cries out to stay English now.

Gareth, with that experience, is the person that could take that on.

Arsene is a great foreign option. I wouldn't do it now, even though a few years ago I'd have certainly considered it.
