England lose top four for 63

Bangladesh continued to take wickets as England were staring at a series loss against Bangladesh, early in their innings in the second T20I in Mirpur on Sunday.

After being put in to bat, England lost their top four batters, including skipper Jos Buttler, for 63 in 10 overs. Four different bowlers accounted for the four dismissals at the Mirpur pitch, which looks a bit difficult to play strokes.

Skipper Shakib Al Hasan removed dangerous-looking Phil Salt for 25 as England were pegged back to 50 for two in the seventh over just as they looked to counter-attack following Taskin Ahmed's dismissal of Dawid Malan.

Then Hasan Mahmud removed Buttler for four and Mehedi Hasan Miraz got rid of Moeen for 15 as England, 1-0 down in the three-match series, paid for being too aggressive on a wicket where more caution was probably the order of the day.

Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan brought Nasum Ahmed for the last over of Powerplay but the left-arm spinner went for 13 in his first over.
