Silva was batting on 58, his second fifty in the game, which came amid a regular fall of wickets on what seemed a difficult batting pitch at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

The highest successful run-chase at the ground is England's 209-1 against the hosts in 2010.

"I don't think it is possible to get more than 300 runs on this wicket. It is common sense but cricket is a funny game," Silva told reporters.

"We bowled them out for 100 and we wanted to get more than 300-plus runs actually.

"We passed it," added Silva, playing just his third Test since his debut in India last year.
