By Andrew Osborn and Kylie MacLellan CORFE MULLEN, England (Reuters) - The leader of British Prime Minister David Cameron's junior coalition partner has signalled his party might agree after all to a referendum on staying in the European Union in any deal on a new centre-right coalition after next week's election. Cameron's Conservatives, with a powerful Eurosceptic wing, have pledged to renegotiate Britain's ties with Brussels and put the outcome to an in/out popular vote in 2017. Cameron says he won't return as prime minister if he can't deliver a referendum, making it a potential deal-breaker if he needs a coalition. Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg's pro-European, centrist Liberal Democrats have long resisted such a plebiscite, which they consider unnecessary.
Mominul Haque scored 80 as Bangladesh made an impressive start in the first Test against Pakistan in Khulna on Tuesday, reaching 236 for four by stumps on the opening day. The talented 23-year-old left-hander batted fluently to pass 50 for the 12th time in his first 13 Tests before being trapped leg-before by Zulfiqar Babar off the last ball of the day. Opener Imrul Kayes made 51, Mohammad Mahmudullah scored 49 and Shakib Al Hasan was unbeaten on 19 after the hosts elected to take first strike in good batting conditions at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium. Only four batsmen -- Viv Richards of the West Indies, South Africa's AB de Villiers and the Indian duo of Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag -- have scored more 50s in consecutive Test matches.
