Trott stars as England take command
Jonathan Trott made a big undefeated hundred at Lord's as England eased into a position of dominance on day one of the first Test against Bangladesh.
Trott, who came to the crease in the fifth over of the day, reached stumps on 175 not out and his second Test century formed the backbone of an imposing total of 362 for four.
Tigers skipper Shakib Al Hasan, having recovered from chickenpox in time to take his place in the tourists' side, won the toss and opted to field first in overcast conditions but any assistance for the bowlers did not last long.
Alastair Cook, having scored two centuries on the winter tour to Bangladesh, failed to cash in this time as he fell lbw to Shahadat Hossain for seven.
Returning captain Andrew Strauss (83) and the incoming Trott then added 181 in serene fashion before the former dragged a Mahmudullah delivery on to his stumps with a century beckoning.
Bangladesh briefly threatened to force their way back into contention when Kevin Pietersen (18) and Ian Bell (17) came and went for modest scores, but debutant Eoin Morgan was in at six and accompanied Trott until the close.
The Dublin-born batsman gave a tantalising taste of his elaborate array of sweeps as he compiled a brisk 40 not out.
