Bangladesh A 331 for 5 (Mominul 150, Nasir Hossain 123*) trail West Indies A 358 (Russell 128, Hyatt 92) by 27 runs
Centuries from Mominul Haque and Nasir Hossain marked a strong Bangladesh response to West Indies' 358. Bangladesh were in trouble at 59 for 4, the West Indies opening seamers Nelon Pascal and Shannon Gabriel nipping out two wickets each. But they struggled to get past Mominul and Nasir, who added 259 for the fifth wicket. Mominul struck 20 fours and a six and Nasir, still unbeaten, finished the day on 123, having hit 14 fours and a six.
Nasir's century was his second in first-class cricket, Mominul struck his first. Bangladesh, at stumps, were in a good position to gain a first-innings lead - they ended the day on 331 for 5, only 27 adrift, having scored at close to four an over. Earlier in the day, Bangladesh bowled out West Indies, picking up the two remaining wickets in quick time.
