Bangladesh 221 for 5 (Tamim 78, Mushfiqur 48) trail England 293 (Moeen 68, Bairstow 52, Mehedi 6-80) by 72 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsTamim Iqbal produced a mature and restrained innings of 78 from 179 balls, as Bangladesh set the tempo once again against a curiously passive England attack to reach the close of the second day at Chittagong in a hugely promising position.By the close, Englands lead had been whittled down to a meagre 72 runs with five wickets still in hand, thanks to a 58-run stand between Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan, who continued Tamims business-like theme on a wicket that offered turn and bounce but perhaps less venom than might have been anticipated once the hardness of the new ball had been negotiated.The pair had taken their stand to the brink of stumps, when - with the shadows lengthening and Englands heads beginning to drop - Ben Stokes summoned up one last bout of vigour to lure Mushfiqur, on 48, into a fatal snick to the keeper. The catch, in fact, was very nearly spilled by Jonny Bairstow as he tumbled forward to snatch at a rare opportunity, but he somehow clung on to give England late reward for a days work full of effort but somewhat lacking in inspiration.In fact, had it not been for Bangladeshs peculiar aversion to breaks in play, their position could have been all the more promising by the close. In addition to Stokes late breakthrough, three of their other four wickets fell in the final over of a session - two in four balls to Moeen Ali before lunch, before a further breakthrough for Adil Rashid on the stroke of tea. Mushfiqurs departure left a huge onus on the shoulders of Shakib, who reached the close on 31 not out, and who will resume day three knowing that the second new ball will be available within the first half-hour of play.The most prized scalp, however, went to the oldest spinner in town. In the 14th over of his England comeback - at the age of 39 and having missed the small matter of 142 Test matches since his last appearance, also against Bangladesh at Chester-le-Street in 2005 - Gareth Batty slid in a flatter, faster ball to Tamim, who grazed a thin nick through to the keeper.Battys pop-eyed roar of triumph did not merely reflect his personal jubilation. It was a fair reaction to a wicket of huge significance, for Tamim had been threatening - as he so often does against England - to seize the game for his own amusement. Remarkably, this was his seventh half-century in nine Test innings against England, dating back to his thrill-a-minute centuries at Lords and Old Trafford in 2010. Having laid the groundwork in a mightily restrained effort, he had looked ready to lift the tempo as England toiled in the afternoon sun.After England had been bowled out for 293 in the first hour of the day, Tamim reined in his instincts on a treacherous surface and waited 48 balls for his first boundary - a full toss from Rashid that he rifled through the covers with power and placement. His caution had been vindicated in the final over of the morning, when his more fluent opening partner, Imrul Kayes, was bowled for 21 by a beauty from Moeen that gripped and bounced to clip his off stump, before - three balls later - Mominul Haque spliced another bouncing bomb to gully to depart for a duck and leave Bangladesh anxiously placed on 29 for 2 at the break.But as Tamims innings progressed, so too did his fluency, particularly on the drive which, by staying very leg-side to the offspin of Moeen and Batty, he was always threatening to unfurl. Sure enough, he brought up his half-century from 131 balls with a sweetly timed back-foot drill off Moeen, to confirm that Bangladeshs 14-month absence from Test cricket had not impacted on his penchant for statement innings against his favourite opponents.He had two significant moments of fortune - first on 28 when he carved Moeen on the up through point and just burst through the fingers of Rashid, diving to his left. Then, on 55, he was given out caught at slip off Moeen - a fine sprawling effort by Joe Root - but successfully reviewed the decision, as replays showed it had deflected off his elbow. The unfortunate umpire was Kumar Dharmasena, who had given Moeen out three times in six balls on the first day, only to have each decision overturned, and he had already added to that tally in the morning session, when a Stuart Broad lbw decision was shown to have been missing leg. Arguably those incidents were still playing on his mind late in the afternoon, when Mushfiqur, on 45, was rapped on the pad by Chris Woakes - one of the few genuine opportunities that Englands seamers were able to create. Hawk-Eye confirmed it would have been clipping leg stump, but Dharmasena seemed reluctant to put his finger on the line yet again.Two balls after Tamims reprieve, however, his partner was gone instead. Mahmudullahs innings of 38 from 66 balls had been a solid, busy performance, right from his first delivery, when he had responded to Moeens pre-lunch breakthroughs by galloping down the track with confident footwork to smother the spin before it could bite. But, having come within four balls of completing the entire afternoon session without losing a wicket, he succumbed to a big legbreak from Rashid that looped above his eyeline and snicked a thick edge for Root to scoop a sharp low catch at slip.Aside from that breakthrough, Rashid was a disappointment - too profligate with his full tosses and too easy to navigate off the pitch on the occasions when he found significant turn. Moeen, too, failed to live up to the promise of his double-wicket breakthrough, while Batty, who had shared the new ball with Broad in a seam-spin combo, offered plenty of spirit but little significant threat until Tamims departure.It was left to Englands seamers to look lively in the closing overs, as Broad responded to Stokes extraction of Mushfiqur by ramping up the pressure on Shakib as Bangladesh dug in for stumps. By and large, however, the trio - Woakes included - were economical but negated, and bowled just 23 overs between them.All in all, England were left to reflect on a first-innings performance that they might initially have thought was above-par for the conditions. After resuming on their overnight 258 for 7, they lost Woakes, the most accomplished of their remaining batsmen, to the first ball of the day, caught at short leg off Taijul Islam for 36, and spent the next 50 minutes scraping together another 35 runs.Rashid, with a penchant for the flick through midwicket, and Broad, using his long levers to sweep to good effect, provided the bulk of those runs but also added their names to the ever-lengthening list of DRS-related decisions in this contest.Rashid, astonishingly, had an lbw overturned when replays showed that an apparently dead-straight pad-rapper would have missed leg stump, while Broad also used DRS to escape an lbw before being last man out, adjudged caught behind after a rare successful review from Bangladesh - the 10th of the innings, a world record. The successful bowler was Mehedi Hasan, who completed a fine debut with figures of 6 for 80.

In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. Nmd Adidas For Sale . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. White Adidas Superstars On Sale . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. SHANGHAI -- Novak Djokovic certainly appears to be a different player on court these days -- smiling after shanking balls instead of screaming, humming songs instead of hurling rackets.And thats when hes having an off day.Djokovic was sluggish and error-prone early in his quarterfinal match against Mischa Zverev at the Shanghai Masters on Friday, but he maintained his composure and fought back to win 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-3.The top-ranked Serb has said in recent weeks that he is trying to find more balance in his life and reduce some of the pressure he has felt on court this season. Part of that entails staying calmer during matches, particularly when things arent going well.In the first set against Zverev, things couldnt have gone much worse. Djokovic piled up 18 unforced errors to only four for Zverev, a German qualifier ranked 110th, and connected on less than half of his first serves.Djokovic started to find his game in the second set, but Zverev continued to press him with his serve-and-volley style, forcing more miscues.I wasnt striking the ball very well, Djokovic said. I was quite flat with my feet, so he got me where he wanted to get me, and to stand still at the baseline.[Zverev] was fighting. He was focused. He gave his best, and he was a few points from winning.Despite his rash of unforced errors -- finishing with 37, including six double-faults -- Djokovic didnt glower at his coaches in the stands or scream at himself. Not once.Instead, he hummed a little song.It was toward the end of the match, he said of his musical interlude. Instead of the occasional tantrum that I used to have -- I hope its behind me -- I would switch that vibration and transform it in a tune.The song that soothed him? Djokovic couldnt quite recall at his postmatch news conference.Im trying to remember. Which one was it? he said. It was a famous song, actually.Djokovic completed a career milestone by winning the French Open this year, but the following months brought only frustration, injuries and discouraging losses.ddddddddddddHe was mentally exhausted and decided he needed a new mindset, prioritizing happiness on court, not winning.Djokovic even hinted this week that it could bring about a coaching change in the new year. Asked Thursday about the status of his coach, Boris Becker, he said they planned to finish off the rest of the season together. As for next season, he added, We still havent talked about it.Becker did not accompany Djokovic to Shanghai.Djokovic next plays 15th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut in the semifinals. The Spaniard beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 6-4.Second-seeded Andy Murray played with the same focus and sharpness he has displayed all week, easily defeating 11th-seeded David Goffin 6-2, 6-2.I had to stay strong there in the second, because physically, although it was a 6-2, 6-2 match, it wasnt easy because a lot of the points were tough, Murray said.Murray hasnt been broken in three matches in Shanghai and hasnt dropped a set in his last nine matches going back to mid-September. He is going for back-to-back titles in China after winning the China Open last week.In the semis, Murray will play Gilles Simon, who beat Jack Sock 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5) in the days final quarterfinal.Simon and Sock combined for 80 winners in the hard-fought, two-hour, 40-minute match, including a tricky, between-the-legs lob by Sock in the first set that floated over the Frenchman and landed just inside the baseline.Sock had been dominating the match early on but took a tumble late in the second set after slipping on a wet spot and bloodied his hand. He lost the next two games to drop the set and let Simon back in the match.
