England's most dramatic collapses: How does defeat in Bangladesh compare?
A look at other England implosions after a century opening stand
Last Updated: 01/11/16 2:35pm
England have been bowled out for a total of 64 or less on nine occasions in their Test history - their record low coming in 1887 when they were dismissed for 45 by Australia.
But their collapse from 100-0 to 164 all out in the second Test against Bangladesh is their worst slump of all time having reached three figures without loss.
Here's how the Dhaka demolition compares to some more recent England implosions from a position of strength…
101-0 to 189 all out (88 runs)
First Test v Sri Lanka, Galle, 2001 - England lose by an innings and 28 runs
Having made England toil in the field for much of the first two days, Sri Lanka eventually declared on 470-5 late on the second evening. Despite Marcus Trescothick's century, England were then skittled for just 253 and asked to follow on.
Trescothick (57) again looked in good nick alongside Michael Atherton, raising hopes that a draw could be salvaged. However, when Sanath Jayasuriya (4-44) had him caught behind, the innings unravelled spectacularly. Muttiah Muralitharan (4-66) got rid of Nasser Hussain before the end of day four, and matters were only made worse the following morning.
Chaminda Vaas (1-29) removed Atherton (44), Graham Thorpe (12) fell to Kumar Dharmasena (1-21), and while Alec Stewart battled to 34 not out at one end, Graeme Hick's six was the best any of those batting between six and 11 could muster at the other, before Muralitharan put the final nail in the England coffin, bowling Darren Gough for a golden duck. England recovered well though and took the series 2-1.
121-0 to 234 all out (113 runs)
First Test v West Indies, Kingston, 1994 - England lose by eight wickets
The Wisden Trophy seemed there for the taking on the opening day of the series as skipper Mike Atherton (55) and Alec Stewart (70) saw off the early salvos from Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh, only for Kenny Benjamin (6-66) to put the skids under the tourists by picking off both openers caught behind.
Even at 134-3 after Walsh bowled Robin Smith for a six-ball duck, England seemed relatively well set, but once Graham Thorpe (16), Graeme Hick (23) and Matthew Maynard (35) departed, none of the lower order - Jack Russell, Chris Lewis, Andrew Caddick, Alan Igglesden or Devon Malcolm - made double figures.
England lost the next two Tests too, so that by the time they hit back in the fourth, the five-match series was lost - 3-1 the final scoreline.
146-0 to 261 all out (115 runs)
Second Test v Pakistan, Old Trafford, 2001 - England lose by 108 runs
England were on a high heading into the 2001 Ashes, with four straight series wins under their belt - Zimbabwe and the West Indies at home, Pakistan and Sri Lanka away - and a first Test thrashing of Pakistan by an innings and nine runs at Lord's, but that feel-good feeling was swiftly evaporated in the space of one Monday afternoon in Manchester.
Set a stiff 370-run target by the visitors, England had made a stunning start with Marcus Trescothick hitting 117, and Michael Atherton 51, but when the latter was bowled by a brutal reverse-swinging delivery from Waqar Younis (3-85), the heavens opened.
Darren Gough's 23 was England's next best score as Waqar and partner-in-crime, Wasim Akram (2-59), ran through the rest of the batting order, with help from Saqlain Mushtaq (4-74) - and it must be said, umpire David Shepherd, who missed several no-balls on wicket-taking deliveries - as Pakistan won the Test and shared the series.
