Abu Dhabi, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 27th Oct, 2021 ) :Bowlers led by Moeen Ali helped England restrict Bangladesh to 124 for nine at the Twenty20 World Cup on Wednesday in the two nations' first ever meeting in the format.
Moeen and fellow spinner Liam Livingstone took two wickets each.
Left-arm quick Tymal Mills claimed three including two successive strikes to finish off the innings.
After giving away 10 runs in the opening over of the innings, Moeen hit back to be on a hat-trick in his second over, only to be denied by Mushfiqur Rahim, who top-scored with 29.
Moeen, an off-spinner, had Liton Das caught at deep square leg for nine and then sent back Mohammad Naim trudging back to the pavilion for five.
Shakib fell for four.
Livingstone trapped Rahim lbw, but England had to use the umpire referral to have the decision in their favour after the onfield official ruled it not out.
England, who thrashed holders West Indies in their opening match of the tournament, need 125 runs to bolster their semi-final hopes from Group 1.
