Tense finish as Sabbir carries hopes: 1st Test, Day 4 (Chittagong)

An exciting finish is likely as Bangladesh need just 33 runs with just two wickets left for a historic first Test victory over England, after closing day four on 253-8.

On a tense day, Imrul Kayes struck 43 and Mushfiqur Rahim (39) put on 87 with debutant Sabbir Rahman (59 not out) the rock as Gareth Batty took 3-65.

Earlier, England's final two wickets added only 12 runs as they were all out for 240, leaving the hosts with a target of 286.

Bangladesh 248 and 253 for 8 (Sabbir 59*, Taijul 11*) need another 33 runs to beat England 293 and 240 (Stokes 85, Bairstow 47, Shakib 5-85).
