Captain Hamza Riazuddin blasted his way to 95 today to take his side past 500

England took a firm grip of the first Friends Provident Under-19 Test against Bangladesh on day two at Scarborough.

Leg-spinner Scott Borthwick's 4-66 reduced the tourists to 265 for nine, 237 runs behind England's first innings total at North Marine Road.

England captain Hamza Riazuddin's 95 earlier extended their overnight 422 for eight to 502 all out.

Riazuddin was last out, having hit 13 fours and three sixes in 138 balls, after Alauddin Babu had dismissed Chris Wood on his way to 4-73.

The hosts picked up wickets at regular intverals as Mominul Haque, who made 90 from 177 deliveries, and Shabbir Rahman, who was unbeaten on 52, were the only Bangladesh batsmen to reach a half-centuries.

There were a pair of wickets each for opening bowlers Wood and Nathan Buck while spinner Azeem Rafiq sent down 21 economical overs for 1-89.
