Moeen Ali then turned the screw, taking 5-57, including century-man Tamin and Monimul Haque, who departed for 66 after a stand of 189. Chris Woakes also claimed 3-30 as a bright start for the hosts with the bat came to a gloomy conclusion. Zafar Ansari meanwhile endured a tough start to Test life with his wicketless six overs going for 36.
