19-year-old offspinner Mehedi Hasan Miraz on Sunday claimed a Bangladesh test match record of 12-159 as his side secured a first-ever win against England — a comfortable 108-run victory — to level the series 1-1 on Sunday.

A stunning spin bowling performance from teenage sensation complemented by a talismanic display by Shakib Al Hasan powered Bangladesh to a historic win.

Mehedi took 6-77 in the second innings to rip through England, which lost all 10 wickets in the post-lunch session in its pursuit of 273 runs to win.

Left arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan complemented his effort with 4-49 with three wickets in four balls to help the side earn the victory inside three days.

This is the first ever Test victory over England for Bangladesh. Sunday's triumph at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium also saw them draw the two-Test series 1-1. England won the first Test in Chittagong by 22 runs.

England were set a daunting 273-run chase. A century stand between the England openers Alastair Cook and Ben Duckett apparently put England in a comfortable position before tea.

Captain Alastair Cook made 59 and Ben Duckett scored 54 as they kept the side unscathed before lunch, reaching 100-0.

But after the break, 19-year-old Miraz tore through the England top order before Shakib grabbed three in an over to put the hosts on the brink of an epic win.

Miraz then picked out Steven Finn with an lbw to seal the victory in three days to send the hosts and the boisterous home crowd in spasms of delight.

Miraz finished with 6/77 in the second innings to return 12 wickets from the match by virtue of his 6/82 in England's first innings. 

His wicket tally stood at 19 wickets from his first two Tests having grabbed seven on his debut in Chittagong.

The dominating win was only their eighth in 95 Tests.

A total of 17 wickets fell on the third day on Sunday and 10 of them were in the final session.

Bangladesh earlier was bowled out for 296 in its second innings after resuming the day on 152-3.
