103.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Samuels, 1 run, over-pitched on leg stump, easily driven to long-on for a single.

Faysal jumps in from jinx central. "I see Brial Lara in Kirk Edwards. I think he is going to do a double century in this match. And this WI tail enders have the capability to support him."

104.1

Rubel Hossain to Samuels, FOUR, The jinx backfires in style. Full ball outside off from round the stumps and Samuels drills it down the ground. Shakib moves quickly to his right from mid-off but dives too early and the ball runs away.

104.2

Rubel Hossain to Samuels, 1 run, defends a short of driving length ball to the off side, and gets a single.

104.3

Rubel Hossain to KA Edwards, FOUR, bouncer, and a good one. Kirk goes for the hook and gets a top edge that swirls over fine leg. He needn't have played that in hindsight. It was going away from him, with daylight between his right shoulder and the ball, and the pace meant he was late on the pull.

104.4

Shuvo comes on for some left-arm darts. Slip and silly point.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. But why fear, since Jules Vinnfield is here. "Marsellus Wallace sent me to tell everyone that he had a conversation with Marty Mcfly and it turns out the West Indies are going to win this inside five days after K.Edwards(no typo) single handedly bowls out Bangladesh....that is all," he says. Thanks for the update Sir, please do enjoy your Big Kahuna burger.

105.1

Suhrawadi Shuvo to KA Edwards, no run, full ball, blocked easily.

105.4

105.5

Suhrawadi Shuvo to Samuels, no run, flighted ball on off stump, defended to the off side carefully.

"Are there ANY spectators at the ground? The last time I heard a cricket match this quiet was when Bangladesh played that 2nd string Windies team a while back." Riddymon, there are a few people in today, unlike the deathly emptiness in front of which the action began on Day one.

105.6

Suhrawadi Shuvo to Samuels, no run, tossed up, driven straight to cover.

106.1

Nasir Hossain to KA Edwards, no run, tossed up on the off stump, defended to the leg side.

106.2

"@Faysal: Brian Lara? Your underestimating Edwards here! He's goin at it like Bradman, looking good for a quintuple century here. Actually, Bradman would have been honored to hear someone say he batted like Edwards!" With that classic from Damon, we are closing the jinx discussion for the day.

112.2

112.3

Nasir Hossain to Samuels, OUT, Nasir pulls off a true-blue WWE style ripper! He is so stunned, he doesn't do the DX chop routine he normally does when he has a wicket. Tossed up on the stumps, and for the second time in two innings, Samuels drives inside out uppishly. He timed the shot well, and the ball was buzzing away past Nasir to his left, but he leaped to his left and plucked it when fully in the air, shooting diagonally up from the ground.

MN Samuels c & b Nasir Hossain 48 (110m 79b 7x4 0x6) SR: 60.75

Gareth: "Hahaha, Damon i thought that too. Must be an Aussie thing. I might not like the beer itself but I do love their advertising." Here's Shakib now. Slip and short leg.

Slow, loopy and wide outside off, Baugh looked to cut and ended up edging it into slip's hands. Kayes holds on well. Beer references aside, Cartlon's run-drought continues.

120.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Sammy, no run, shaped into the pads, nudged to the leg side.

120.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Sammy, OUT, is that the end of Sammy? He's trod back onto his stumps. Strangest dismissal I have seen in a while. After Rahul Dravid's caught behind off the shoe lace. It was drifting down the leg side from Shakib, Sammy went back in the crease and looked to flick, but the ball kept low and his back leg seemed to slip. He inevitably stepped on the furniture and that's the end of that. Bangladesh are right back in this and it is lunch.

DJG Sammy hit wicket b Shakib Al Hasan 1 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

For the best part of 90 minutes, Bangladesh were sleep-walking through the day. Nasir Hossain then plucked a cracker to give his side an opening, and Baugh and Sammy have duly gifted their wickets away. Superb effort from Kirk Edwards, though, and he will hope to take the Windies close to 400. We'll be back at about 12.00pm local time, when the Goan legend Dustin Silgardo will take over the commentary.

Damon lets us know: "No joke, but here in Australia we have a soft drink variety called "Kirk's". These West Indians must be named after Aussie drinks." Boy, am I thirsty now.

Fidel Edwards will be on strike for the first ball after lunch. Lots of noise from the Bangladesh fielders

Welcome back to the second Test between Bangladesh and West Indies

120.3

Shakib Al Hasan to FH Edwards, 1 run, on middle stump but didn't turn. Fidel gets an inside edge to deep square leg

The field spreads with Kirk Edwards on strike

120.4

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, big backlift and then a textbook forward defence to a full ball

120.5

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, Edwards happy to defend again

120.6

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, Bangladesh don't bring the field in but Kirk Edwards defends anyway.

Strange cricket that. Perhaps, Kirk knows something about his namesake's batting that we don't. He leaves him on strike for the next over

End of over 121 (1 run) West Indies 340/8
KA Edwards    116* (261b 14x4 2x6)      Shakib Al Hasan    32-11-59-3
FH Edwards    1* (1b)      Nasir Hossain    24-6-48-3

Nasir Hossain to bowl

121.1

Nasir Hossain to FH Edwards, no run, that was pretty much a yorker and Fidel plays an ugly forward defence

121.2

Nasir Hossain to FH Edwards, 3 runs, that's a full toss and Fidel plays a lazy swipe to the off side. Nasir's tossing it up alright. Perhaps a little too much

121.3

Nasir Hossain to KA Edwards, no run, better length and it kept a touch low. Kirk had to bend his knees to defend that

121.4

Nasir Hossain to KA Edwards, no run, fuller and Kirk Edwards gets forward to defend

121.5

Nasir Hossain to KA Edwards, 1 run, full and Edwards down the track to take a single to long-off

This is poor stuff from Bangladesh, not pulling the field in off the fifth ball of the over

121.6

Nasir Hossain to FH Edwards, no run, shortish and Fidel gets in line to defend

End of over 122 (4 runs) West Indies 344/8
FH Edwards    4* (4b)      Nasir Hossain    25-6-52-3
KA Edwards    117* (264b 14x4 2x6)      Shakib Al Hasan    32-11-59-3

Kirk Edwards is back on strike. Expect a few shots here. The field is well back.

122.1

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, full and Edwards defends calmly

122.2

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, 2 runs, shorter and Kirk Edwards chops it down. Opened the face nicely there to guide it past slip

122.3

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, fuller and there's the forward defence from Kirk Edwards

122.4

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, a lesson in the forward defence from Edwards here

122.5

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, and again! That ball was on middle stump and Kirk held his pose after defending

Again Bangaldesh are not bringing the field in for the last ball.

122.6

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, 1 run, and Kirk Edwards has taken advantage. Takes a simple single to long-on to retain strike

Can't quite understand Bangladesh's tactics

End of over 123 (3 runs) West Indies 347/8
KA Edwards    120* (270b 14x4 2x6)      Shakib Al Hasan    33-11-62-3
FH Edwards    4* (4b)      Nasir Hossain    25-6-52-3

123.1

Suhrawadi Shuvo to KA Edwards, no run, full and defended off the front foot

123.2

Suhrawadi Shuvo to KA Edwards, 1 run, here comes the big shot! Down the track and drives down the ground. Shuvo dives but it's past him before he knows it. Doesn't make it to the boundary though

123.3

Suhrawadi Shuvo to FH Edwards, no run, that one turned a bit but Edwards defends

123.4

Suhrawadi Shuvo to FH Edwards, no run, full on off and pushed to cover

123.5

Suhrawadi Shuvo to FH Edwards, no run, straighter and Fidel is stodgy in defence

123.6

Suhrawadi Shuvo to FH Edwards, no run, Fidel is no mug with the bat and looks comfortable defending this full length

End of over 124 (1 run) West Indies 348/8
FH Edwards    4* (8b)      Suhrawadi Shuvo    22-3-67-1
KA Edwards    121* (272b 14x4 2x6)      Shakib Al Hasan    33-11-62-3

124.1

Shakib Al Hasan to KA Edwards, OUT, Huge appeal and he's given it. That was the arm ball and it hit him on the back pad. Height was a bit of a question and Dharmasena thought about it for a while before raising the finger. It wasn't that short but Kirk Edwards went back to it and played for the turn and it beat the inside edge. Shakib went wide of the crease but it hit Kirk Edwards in front of middle and would probably have hit the top of leg

KA Edwards lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 121 (371m 273b 14x4 2x6) SR: 44.32

Devendra Bishoo is the new batsman

124.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Bishoo, no run, gets a sighter outside off stump first up

124.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Bishoo, no run, that turned and hit Bishoo on the pad

124.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Bishoo, no run, that's turned and bounced. Spat up at Bishoo who somehow keeps it down

124.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Bishoo, no run, fuller, and a confident drive finds mid-off

124.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Bishoo, no run, full again and Bishoo gets nicely forward to defend it back

End of over 125 (wicket maiden) West Indies 348/9
D Bishoo    0* (5b)      Shakib Al Hasan    34-12-62-4
FH Edwards    4* (8b)      Suhrawadi Shuvo    22-3-67-1

125.1

Suhrawadi Shuvo to FH Edwards, 1 run, drifts down leg and Fidel tucks it away

125.2

Suhrawadi Shuvo to Bishoo, no run, nice flight from Shuvo. Bishoo hesitated before getting on the front foot and wasn't quite to the pitch of it when he defended

125.3

Suhrawadi Shuvo to Bishoo, 1 run, played to backward point and Bishoo is anxious to get off strike. They sneak a single. Shahadat Hossain was really slow getting to the ball

125.4

Suhrawadi Shuvo to FH Edwards, no run, beaten all ends up. That pitched on middle and turned right past Fidel's outside edge. Perfect left-armer's delivery. Too good for the tailender

125.5

Suhrawadi Shuvo to FH Edwards, no run, that was fuller and Fidel got on the front quickly to drive

125.6

Suhrawadi Shuvo to FH Edwards, FOUR, drops it short and Fidel attempts a big pull shot but hasn't made good enough contact. Just bounces away to deep midwicket

End of over 126 (6 runs) West Indies 354/9
FH Edwards    9* (12b 1x4)      Suhrawadi Shuvo    23-3-73-1
D Bishoo    1* (7b)      Shakib Al Hasan    34-12-62-4

Shakib goes around the wicket to the left-handed Bishoo

126.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Bishoo, no run, nice line and Bishoo does well to present the full face of the bat

126.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Bishoo, 1 run, slightly wider of off stump and Bishoo manages to push it wide of mid-off

126.3

Shakib Al Hasan to FH Edwards, no run, pitched on middle stump and Fidel gets on the front foot to defend

126.4

Shakib Al Hasan to FH Edwards, OUT, that's five for Shakib! Fidel's gone back to a delivery to which he should have been well forward. Hit him on leg and there wasn't a lot of turn. Just straightened enough to hit leg and it kept low as well so would have hit halfway up leg stump

FH Edwards lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 9 (14m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 64.28

Shakib Al Hasan's 5 for 63 is his eighth five-wicket haul in Tests, a record for a Bangladesh bowler. They are his best figures at the Shere Bangla Stadium

Bangladesh have bowled West Indies out for 355. They'd be quite happy to have run through the tail as quickly as they have because they are a couple of stodgy bats there for West Indies
