Bangladesh in West Indies Test Series - 1st Test

West Indies v Bangladesh

Bangladesh won by 95 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

Well begun is half done. Bowlers have done their job for West Indies and the openers will have to endure a tricky phase where they will have to face 7 overs. A wicket or two for Bangladesh will certainly prop them and on the other hand there will be nothing that West Indies stand to gain from this phase in terms of advantage or upper hand. So it's Dale Richards and Omar Phillips to face Mashrafe first up

0.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to Richards, no run, wild swing outside the off stump and left alone by Richards, not Issac Vivian Alexander but Dale

0.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Richards, no run, outside the off stump and coming in. Richards lets it settle in the keeper's hands

0.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Richards, no run, outside the off stump and coming in a touch. Richards covers the line of the delivery by getting behind it and defends it

0.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Richards, SIX, short and punished! What a way to get off the mark. Richards pulls it high and handsome over midwicket for a six. Well quite a way to ease nerves!

Remember David Gower getting a boundary as his first scoring stroke

Last ball of the day coming up

6.6

Rubel Hossain to Austin, no run, got it right this time, and almost had a wicket. Fullish on middle, pushes through the line, gets a thick edge but just short of first slip

The end of the second day, and an eventful one at that. Bangladesh recovered well to reach 238, after they were in a position of posting a score significantly lesser than that. Shakib the ended a brief but entertaining knock by Dale Richards to pull things back even more for Bangladesh, though West Indies will still think they have the slight edge. However, Bangladesh will bank on their spinners to deliver, especially Shakib, who will benefit from some spin and bounce on this track.

Thanks for sending us your feedback, and we'll see you again tomorrow for what promises to be an interesting day's cricket. The Test is back to life after that dull beginning. Join us then. Bye.

48.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Dowlin, no run, lands on the off stump and hits the pad as he shoulders arms but it was turning away

48.3

48.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Dowlin, no run, flighted full, and he leans forward to defend

48.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Dowlin, no run, a tad quicker, on the off stump line, gets forward to defend

48.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Dowlin, OUT, And he has trapped him in front. He was trying exactly for that through the over and he got his man this time. Dowlin stretched forward to defend but the flighted delivery straightened on the middle stump line to the hit the pad. The bat was outside the line; perhaps he was thinking it would turn away. Shakib Al Hasan, the chief strike force, of Bangladesh gets an early breakthrough in the second session. Can Bangladesh build on this?
