England punish Bangladesh after Cook dismissed

England punish Bangladesh after Cook dismissed

England's batsmen prospered in the first session of the first test against Bangladesh on Thursday, with Andrew Strauss and Jonathan Trott putting on 98 as England reached 105 for one at lunch.
Trott hit five fours as his 50 came up in 75 balls and he was 50 not out at lunch, with Strauss unbeaten on 40.
Bangladesh decided to bowl on a murky and damp morning at Lord's, hoping its medium-fast bowling line-up would be able to take advantage of a moist wicket and swing.
The ball moved a little for the first few overs and Alastair Cook was stranded leg before wicket by Shahadat Hossain having scored just seven.
