CHITTAGONG - England's Jonathan Trott regained form ahead of a Test series against Bangladesh with an impressive century in a warm-up match yesterday.

Trott, with just one half-century in his past four Tests in South Africa recently, hit 14 fours in his 134-ball 101 before retiring to help the tourists gain the lead on the penultimate day of the three-day game.

England declared their first innings closed at 281-7 in reply to Bangladesh A's 202.

Trott steadied the innings with a 96-run stand for the fourth wicket with Ian Bell after three wickets fell for 64.
