Graeme Swann completed a maiden 10-wicket match-haul as England ended Bangladesh’s resistance with a 181-run victory in the opening Test on Tuesday.

Junaid Siddique hit a solid 106 for his maiden Test century and Mushfiqur Rahim an impressive 95 to frustrate the tourists before Bangladesh were bowled out for 331 on the fifth and final day, chasing an improbable 513-run target. Off-spinner Swann, who took five wickets in the first innings, finished with 5-127 off 49 overs in the second. England, denied success for more than two sessions heaved a sigh of relief when Swann removed both batsmen in his opening four overs after lunch.

Brief scores: England 1st innings: 599-6 decl & 2nd 209-7 decl; Bangladesh 1st innings 296 & 2nd 331
