Commentary

It's been a belter at the start of the season and hopefully we will have lots more matches like this in this season. The game ended at 3 pm, as I had predicted using a nifty mathematical algorithm called induction. Maths prevails over the voodoo art of jinxing players. On that note, this is Devashish Fuloria signing off. Have a good day.


Kieran Powell has been named the Man of the Match for his twin centuries in the Test.

Darren Sammy: " Bangladesh played really really well, but credit must go to my bowlers and our batsmen. All in all, a good team effort. It turned out to be a very good Test wicket after 1000 runs in the first two innings, but there was something in the final stages of the match and I am glad our bowlers imposed themselves. The team has a whole new belief and we are trying to get more consistent in Tests. We are looking to improve with every game."

Mushfiqur Rahim: "The boys really worked hard. In this Test, we competed well in all the sessions. Congratulations to Gazi on a great debut match. Test cricket is the biggest challenge and we don't play that many, but we really did well in the first innings, but lack of partnerships in the second let us down. They bowled very well, but it was down to the lack of partnerships. We are 1-0 down but we have lots of positives from this Test and hopefully we can come back hard."


What a great Test match! West Indies come out on top, but they know that there were lots of volleys from Bangladesh to their top-spin serves. Tino Best was the star of the final day, picking up his first five-for in the process. No doubt he appears so pumped. Bit of a surprise as it was Narine who was expected to make an impact.

Apart from El Tino, there were lots of top-performances from both teams. Sohag Gazi had a great debut match, Kieran Powell scored two tons, Naeem Islam scored his maiden century, etc. Overall, a well-fought match and I must admit, a great one to commentate on.

Best to Mahmudullah, OUT, it's five for Tino, it's a win for West Indies and a big disappointment for the home crowd! The ball was full and fast and surprisingly for some reason, on the middle stump. Mahmudullah, who was backing away to the leg side past few ball, misses and that crashes the stumps and the hopes of millions.

Best to Mahmudullah, no run, back of length this time, slower than usual, the batsman makes room and punches it too deep point

Best to Mahmudullah, no run, backs away on the leg side, it's a bouncer from Tino and he sways out of the line
