England 293 and 228 for 8 (Stokes 85, Bairstow 47, Shakib 5-79) lead Bangladesh 248 (Tamim 78, Mushfiqur 48, Stokes 4-26) by 273 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsBen Stokes produced a day of all-round dominance to rival anything produced by an England player in the subcontinent, to drag his side - wicket by wicket, run by run - into the ascendancy in a thrilling first Test against Bangladesh at Chittagong.With four crucial wickets in a supreme display of reverse-swing bowling in Bangladeshs first innings, followed by a technically formidable 85 from 151 balls in Englands second, Stokes twice hauled England back from the point of no return, and in so doing, sapped the spirit of a Bangladesh side that had made much of the running in the first two days of the contest.By the close, England had recovered from a ropey 64 for 5 in their second innings to reach the close on 228 for 8 - an overall lead of 273 - with Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes once again demonstrating the depth of Englands batting resources in a comfortable ninth-wicket stand. However, with the second new ball looming within four overs of the resumption, the vagaries of the pitch are sure to be revealed once again when Bangladeshs spinners are armed with a hard new cherry, which in turn will reaffirm the magnificence of Stokes performance.The ball was in its 19th over when Stokes began his vigil, with men around the bat and England in some strife after the loss of four wickets for 20 runs in the space of ten overs either side of lunch. But, in a doughty display of patience and controlled aggression, Stokes demonstrated both maturity and the fruits of his own hard graft in the nets, as he played largely off the back foot to give himself time to react to whatever came his way.Aside from one early sweep for six over square leg off Taijul Islam, it wasnt until the final session that Stokes unfurled his more belligerent strokes, as he began to warm to the lessening bite of the spinners to crunch six fours and two more sixes in a stay that spanned 46 overs. The second of his sixes, again off Taijul, was hoisted high over midwicket to bring up a 102-ball fifty.Jonny Bairstow was his principal ally in a sixth-wicket stand of 127, during which time Bairstow went past Andy Flowers record for the most runs by a wicketkeeper in a calendar year. He finally chopped on for 47 to give Kamrul Islam Rabbi his maiden Test wicket - a rare success for Bangladeshs seamers who contributed 11 overs all told and none before the 40th over - and Stokes followed three overs later to give Shakib Al Hasan the fourth wicket of a fighting haul of 5 for 79.However, as Stokes departed to huge acclaim from his team-mates, it was clear that he had already carried the destiny of this match beyond any reasonable doubt. Bangladesh cannot be entirely ruled out, of course, but in what is already a stiff fourth-innings requirement, it will require a performance of at least equal skill and resolve if they are to secure a win that would surely count as their greatest Test victory.To devalue Stokes efforts by commenting on the identity of his opponents would do a disservice to both parties. Bangladesh may have lost all eight of their previous Tests against England, but much like Sri Lanka in the early 1990s, there comes a point when past history counts for little and teams deserve to be judged on the here and now. And for two days of absorbing, and very traditional, subcontinental cricket, it had been Bangladesh putting in all of the inspirational performances - from Mehedi Hasans six-wicket debut, to Tamim Iqbals cool-headed 78. England started the third day with a lead of 73 and five Bangladesh wickets still to claim, no easy task given the listlessness of their spinners when armed with the soft old ball. It was clear that a lead of any description on this surface would be critical to either side, so Stokes made it his duty to be the man that England needed.Their day did, however, begin with a gift-wrapped opening wicket. His later wickets atoned for the misjudgement to a degree but, as their last remaining senior batsman, Shakibs decision to gallop down the pitch to Moeen Alis second delivery of the morning was an aberration. He was stumped by three yards to depart for 31, and when the nightwatchman Shafiul Islam slogged an Adil Rashid legbreak to mid-on for 2, the door was flapping open for Stokes to kick through the tail.He had already made arguably the key incision of the match by extracting Mushfiqur Rahim for 48 on the second evening and, with the ball moving both ways seemingly at will, from over and round the wicket, Stokes was threatening left- and right-handers alike on both sides of the bat - as well as flush on the helmet, when he pinned the debutant Sabbir Rahman with a pinpoint bouncer. By the time he plucked out Rabbis off stump with a perfect inswinger, he had completed innings figures of 4 for 26 in 14 overs, including 4 for 10 in his last ten.By lunch, however, the pricelessness of Englands 45-run lead had become all too apparent, as Bangladeshs spinners once again surged to the fore, armed with the hard new ball that seemed at times to detonate from the crumbling surface. In the space of eight deliveries, England lost both of their most acclaimed players of spin, as Alastair Cook was lured into a poke to slip off Mehedi before Joe Root - always eager to rotate the strike - dropped to one knee and was pinned lbw by Shakib. And right on the stroke of lunch, England lost their third wicket for two runs in the space of 20 balls, as Ben Duckett lobbed a simple chance off Shakib to short leg.Stokes appearance followed soon after the resumption when Gary Ballance, who had never looked comfortable as Bangladesh cramped his pads with a tight leg-stump line, swept firmly into Imrul Kayes midriff at leg slip for 9, and though Moeen survived his sixth TV referral of the match after a catch to short leg had been deflected off the fielders helmet, he too fell on the sweep to leave the fate of the game hanging on Englands redoubtable middle order. Not for the first time in recent months, they responded to the challenge. Discount NBA Australia Jerseys .

LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59.To celebrate Sky Sports 25th birthday this week, we’re looking back at some of the most memorable moments from the last quarter of a century, including Paul Collingwood leading England to World Twenty20 glory in 2010. Watch the video above or click on this link to hear Collingwoods memories of that triumph…Group D: West Indies 60-2 (Gayle 25) beat England 191-5 (Morgan 55) by eight wickets on D/LEnglands only defeat came in their opening match - and it jarred. Debutants Michael Lumb (28 off 18) and Craig Kieswetter (26 off 14) blasted England to 66-2 off 6.3 overs before Eoin Morgan (55 off 35) and Luke Wright (45no off 27) ran amok in a devastating 95-run stand. Cavalier Chris Gayle retaliated with two sixes in a 12-ball 25 before rain had the final say in the hosts favour - Collingwood less-than-impressed with West Indies still needing 132 more off 14.1 overs. Craig Kieswetter makes an instant impact, hitting Ravi Rampaul for six Memorable moment: Morgans audacious reverse-lap for four after he and Wright (two) had plundered three sixes off as many Ravi Rampaul balls, the last a free-hit.Colly says: Kieswetter was one of the hardest hitters of a cricket ball in world cricket. I remember rifling into the boys that if a spinner was on in the first over and you want to take him down, take him down - thats your job. There was a really aggressive mind-set. It was a hard defeat to take because wed done so much that was good in the first 20 overs.Group D: England 120-8 (Morgan 45) v Ireland 14-1 - match abandonedRain ruled again at Providence Stadium again but England qualified for the Super Eights despite the washout by virtue of a higher run-rate - reward for their first-match salvo. But for a stoic 45 from former Ireland international Eoin Morgan, England might have been packing their bags as Luke Wrights 20 was the next best score. Both fell to Boyd Rankin (2-25) after Kevin OBrien and Trent Johnston (1-14) had terrorised the top-order. Eoin Morgan stands firm - and goes on the offensive - against Ireland Memorable moment: Lumb launching himself at square leg to claim a sensational diving catch to remove Paul Stirling for a duck.Colly says: We scraped through the early stages of the tournament but as soon as we got momentum, it was almost like a juggernaut getting faster and faster and nobody could stop us. Everybody settled down; everybody knew their role in the side and everybody was performing their role very well.Super Eights: Pakistan 147-9 (Yardy 2-19) lost to England 151-4 (Pietersen 73no) by six wicketsPlayer-of-the-tournament Kevin Pietersen made his first major contribution of the campaign to steer England to their first victory with three balls left after an all-round impressive display by the bowlers. Michael Yardy was the pick, returning 2-19 from his allocation - removing Mohammad Hafeez and Misbah-ul-Haq to crank up the pressure as runs proved tough to come by. Kamran Akmal and Shahid Afridi look on as Kevin Pietersen goes aerial Memorable moment: Shahid Afridis calamitous calling - running himself out first ball with a suicidal single into the covers off Yardy.Colly says: You hardly ever get a spinner bowling three overs on a trot in T20 cricket now but I used to be able to hand the ball to Graeme Swann and Michael Yardy and say I know whats going to happen in the next eight overs - theyll stem the flow of runs and take a few wickets. Everybody used to say how can Yardy get away with not going for many runs but he was a wily campaigner.Super Eights: England 168-7 (Pietersen 53) beat South Africa 129 (Sidebottom 3-23) by 39 runsSouth Africa were swept aside in emphatic fashion, like Pakistan succumbing to the potent Swann-Yardy combination, which returned 5-55. JP Duminy (39 off 25 balls) ploughed more or less a lone furrow after Kieswetter (41 off 42) and Pietersen (53 off 33) chalked up 94 for Englands second wicket.dddddddddddd Michael Yardy celebrates taking the wicket of Herschelle Gibbs Memorable moment: Pietersen reaching his 50 off 30 balls with a flamingo four two balls after pulling a slower Dale Steyn delivery onto the roof of one of the Bridgetown stands.Colly says: Pietersen was our rock. Hes such a powerful player that he didnt have to take huge risks straight away; he was a very composed T20 player. You really do need a world-class player to stand out to win tournaments and he was the man for us.Super Eights: New Zealand 149-6 (Taylor 44) lost to England 153-7 (Morgan 40) by three wicketsEven shorn of Kevin Pietersens services - Englands No 3 having flown home to attend the birth of his son - England had too much might for a New Zealand outfit propelled to a challenging total by Ross Taylors sparkling 44. At 66-4 Englands hopes were in the balance despite a feisty knock from Lumb (32 off 21) before Tim Bresnan (23no off 11) ensured Eoin Morgans gutsy 40 wasnt in vain. Tim Bresnan stares down his man after removing Jesse Ryder Memorable moment: Morgan showcases his sublime timing with a one-handed maximum off Scott Styris over long on thats recorded at 84-metres long.Colly says: We knew we were going to miss a big player but our bowlers were doing so well - we went on a nine-game unbeaten run and didnt go for over 149 runs, which is ludicrous - that we were confident wed knock off the runs.Semi-final: Sri Lanka 128-6 (Mathews 58) lost to England 132-3 (Pietersen 42no) by seven wicketsSri Lanka failed to make their second successive final as Englands power-packed top-order made light work of chasing down a modest target, carried by Angelo Mathews 58 off 45 balls. Kieswetter (39) and Lumb (33) knocked off 68 runs in the first 8.1 overs before Pietersen, back in the fold, eased England into the final with a forceful 42no off 26 balls. Michael Lumb steers the ball away past Kumar Sangakkara Memorable moment: Chamara Kapugedera took advice to throw the bat too literally, his willow flying out of his hands and through square leg as he miscued a pull off Stuart Broad.Colly says: The team was a real pleasure to captain because I could say guys, you know exactly what youre doing; its working against every team; just go about your business. I was always a big believer of getting your best T20 bowlers in the side and then your main batsmen will knock the runs off.FINAL: Australia 147-6 (D Hussey 59) lost to England 148-3 (Kieswetter 63) by seven wicketsEngland romped to their first ICC global title with 18 balls remaining after Kieswetter (63 off 49) and Pietersen (47 off 31) put on 111 for the second wicket, leaving Collingwood to hit the winning runs and spark wild celebrations. That Australia recovered from 45-4 was down to David Husseys determined 59; Cameron Whites 19-ball 30 gave the innings some middle momentum but in vain. Graeme Swann and Pietersen celebrate with skipper Paul Collingwood Memorable moment: Collingwood leaping in the air and being mobbed by his on-rushing team-mates after striking Watson through midwicket for the winning runs.Colly says: It was sure euphoria. Even when we were celebrating up on the podium as a team I you are pinching yourself because its very hard to believe.
