Mehidy's 4-12 spins Bangladesh to T20 win over England

Mehidy Hasan Miraz has left England in a spin with bat and ball as Bangladesh held their nerve to move to an unassailable 2-0 series lead with a four-wicket win in their T20 international.

England reached 1-50 at the end of the powerplay in Dhaka on Sunday but losing three wickets in 16 balls sucked the momentum out of their innings and Mehidy claimed 4-12 as the tourists were all out for 117.

At the same venue where the off-spinner took 12 wickets to lift Bangladesh to a first Test victory over England in 2016, Mehidy then contributed a vital 20 off 16 balls in a nail-biting chase.

Jofra Archer cranked up the pace and collected 3-13 to leave 13 needed off 12 balls but Chris Jordan was dispatched for three fours after being asked to bowl the penultimate over - his first.

Najmul Hossain Shanto, who was instrumental in the six-wicket victory in the first match with a 30-ball 51, ended up not out on 46 this time, helping the home side stay in the contest despite England bowlers making inroads at regular intervals.

"In a tricky game like this it was important to keep our nerve. Shanto... Mehidy, a superb innings for the team," Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan said.

Ultimately, England's downfall came down to a dismal batting display after rejigging their top-order, with Phil Salt and Dawid Malan opening, Moeen Ali at three and captain Jos Buttler at four in an attempt to redress some balance following their six-wicket defeat in Chattogram on Thursday.

Ben Duckett top-scored with a run-a-ball 28, having to rebuild after the cluster of wickets, while Salt registered a punchy 25 off 19, as five of their batters were out for single-figure scores.

Rehan Ahmed, England's youngest men's Test and ODI cricketer, also became his nation's first male teenage player in the shortest format, claiming 1-11 in two overs.

"It was a different game of T20, credit to Bangladesh for outplaying us. No batter ever wants to get out but a tough wicket to start your innings on, we needed someone to stick with Ben Duckett," Buttler said.
