Bangladeshis hit by Jeffers century
St Kitts & Nevis 232 for 4 (Jeffers 118, Chanderpaul 70*) trail Bangladeshis 377 for 7 dec (Mushfiqur 106*, Nasir 100) by 145 runs
Mushfiqur Rahim and Nasir Hossain picked up important centuries on day two of Bangladesh's warm-up game in Warner Park. But the day would not end well for the visitors after St Kitts & Nevis' Shane Jeffers pummeled 118.
Shivnarine Chanderpaul cruised to an unbeaten 70 as the bowlers struggled to put together a string of good overs. At stumps, the home side were 232 for 4 after Bangladesh had declared on 377 for 7.
Mushfiqur was the first to reach the three-figure mark and remained not out on 106 off 170 balls, with eight fours and three sixes. Nasir managed his first fifty-plus score since early June, grinding out 100 off 153 balls. The pair added 191 runs for the seventh wicket but the moment Nasir got out, Mushfiqur placed the onus on his bowlers. But they did not respond well.
Jeffers' aggressive intent rattled them so much that by the time his opening partner Shaquille Martina was dismissed for 9, the total had swollen to 77 in 19 overs.
Jeffers collected 22 fours and was finally dismissed for 118 off 131 balls, caught at deep midwicket by Mahmudllah off Shuvagata Hom. There was a wicket each for seamer Rubel Hossain and left-arm spinner Taijul Islam as well.
