Scorecard

Seventeen wickets fell on the opening day at the Beausejour Stadium in St Lucia, with Bangladesh A emerging from the carnage with the upper hand over West Indies A. The hosts chose to bowl first and despite two early wickets, Bangladesh A had progressed to 51 for 2 before trouble started. Andre Russell and Nelon Pascal ripped out the heart of the Bangladesh order, as the hosts lost 6 wickets for 28 runs. At 79 for 8, it looked like the visitors would not reach three figures, but Farhad Reza and Sohag Gazi staged a rearguard action, adding 61 for the ninth wicket, before Gazi fell to Sunil Narine for 30. Reza ended up unbeaten on 39, while Russell and Pascal took four wickets apiece.

West Indies A struggled even more in their reply, with only opener Rajindra Chandrika reaching double figures, as seven other batsmen returned to the pavilion over the course of 35 overs. Farhad Reza and Suhrawadi Shuvo took three wickets each as the hosts were reduced to 60 for 7 before ending the day on 72 for 7. Chandrika was still there on 30, with Narine on 7 for company.
