Fidel Edwards18.418824.718013015
19.5 to Shahriar Nafees, Fidel's struck again on the fourth morning. Nafees dies by the sword as he stays rooted on the crease and slashes at a slightly short, wide ball, that did not really bounce. Looked like he got an under edge that carried into Baugh's gloves.. 58/1
92.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, How gutting this is if you are Rahim. He's been on 68 for over two days, itching to go out there and add to his so far impressive innings. And when he comes out, he falls first ball. Short from Fidel, hurries in from back of a length towards Rahim's hips, and he looks to nudge it square, and ends up getting a leading edge that pops up behind square leg. Nicely taken by Bishoo, running back.. 255/5
94.3 to Shahriar Nafees, Fidel's struck again on the fourth morning. Nafees dies by the sword as he stays rooted on the crease and slashes at a slightly short, wide ball, that did not really bounce. Looked like he got an under edge that carried into Baugh's gloves.. 274/6
Ravi Rampaul2384211.821134000
11.6 to Imrul Kayes, well bowled Rampaul, he's made things happen in this over by changing the angle and using the seam. He shapes this in at Kayes from a touch wide of the crease and gets it to straighten down the line outside off. Kayes is not the most patient batsman doing the rounds, he pokes at it without conviction and the edge lands in Baugh's gloves.. 26/1
Daren Sammy2685312.031266000
55.4 to Raqibul Hasan, that's gone. Angled in from Sammy but its hit Raqibul on the back pad bang in front of middle. Dharmasena made up his mind pretty quickly. There was a bit of swing but Raqibul was well back in the crease and it looked pretty adjacent on first viewing. 159/3
Marlon Samuels2547322.92964000
40.2 to Tamim Iqbal, oh Tamim, what have you done?! He has the bowlers at his mercy when he chooses to throw it all away with a needless slog. Samuels flights this on middle stump, Tamim - who has been so selective so far - can't restrain himself from slog-sweeping. It wasn't straight enough for the shot, and he got a top edge. It swirled up and settled in the hands of midwicket when it came down. As inexplicable as someone choosing to commit suicide immediately after realising he had a billion dollar inheritance.. 110/2
82.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, another wicket thrown away. Shakib was on top of things here, and Bangladesh were set to go to stumps in fine fettle, but Shakib has perished to a ball that didn't deserve a wicket. It was short, it was flat, it didn't turn, and it was marginally outside off. Shakib went for a hard-handed cut, despite not having the room, and ended up nicking it into Baugh's gloves. Thick edge, and Baugh did quite well to move the hands to the left and cling on to it with the webbing. Shakib looks gutted as he makes his way back.. 238/4
Devendra Bishoo3068132.701338100
107.6 to Nasir Hossain, all over for Nasir, who has batted with needless adventurism in his debut innings. Bishoo flights it on the stumps and gets it to turn away marginally, Nasir looks to slog-heave and top-edges. Baugh settles under it as it spirals down.. 317/7
109.4 to Elias Sunny, Bishoo's flipped him over, Sunny side up. The joys of watching the deception of a googly. It landed on off and went the other way as Sunny defended inside the line. Thin outside edge, flies between the keeper and slip, Sammy does well to stick out a right hand and pouch it.. 317/8
121.5 to Shahadat Hossain, Shaha-that's that. He jumps out once more and flaps ungainly at a legbreak spinning away from him, and misses. Baugh does the rest quite clinically.. 345/9

Shahadat Hossain511913.80242004
2.4 to LMP Simmons, well bowled Shahadat, he has produced pace and bounce from short of a length to send Simmons on his way. That bounced more than he budgeted for, and he ended up playing the steer more uppishly than he'd have liked. Raqibul takes a really good catch at gully, it was flying and dying on him to his left, and he moved quick as a whippet to pouch it.. 19/1
Rubel Hossain1525203.46687003
Shakib Al Hasan1825332.94835200
65.5 to R Rampaul, top edged, and this time Tamim is not anywhere near the catch (drop?). Rahim's big gloves settle under the mis-hit and Rampaul is on his way.. 229/8
67.3 to DJG Sammy, that's the end of Sammy's gleeful hitting. Shakib holds the length back a touch and Sammy still dances down the pitch and looks to heave. He misses the length, the ball stays low and finds the base of leg stump.. 244/9
67.6 to D Bishoo, Shakib's ruined it for Sunny, who finishes with the second best debut figures for Bangladesh. Bizarre collapse from West Indies, who have gone down in style like the band that played on the Titanic. This one spins in sharply from outside off, Bishoo flaps at it without getting to the pitch and the ball spins in to disturb the off stump. Shakib finishes with three, and Bangladesh lead by a significant 106 runs.. 244/10
Elias Sunny2309464.089511300
14.5 to KA Edwards, The fielders weren't helping him, so Sunny does it himself. He catches Edwards plumb in front with a typical left-armer's delivery. It came in from wide of the crease, landed on a good length around middle stump and straightened. Edwards went for the sweep, but it was too full for thre shot, and was through him to hit the front pad in front of middle.. 44/2
22.2 to DM Bravo, West Indies are playing spin quite poorly here. Bravo is on his way. Flighted ball on off stump, a puff of dust as it turns in, but nothing out of the ordinary off the pitch. With two men catching close on the leg side, Bravo had no business reaching out and dabbing it with the turn, but that's just what he did. Straight into short leg's hands.. 52/3
41.1 to KC Brathwaite, all that effort gone to waste. Brathwaite is gone after a meek poke after leaning forward, and Sunny has three on debut. Tossed up ball on middle and straightening menacingly, Brathwaite got forward and poked at it, and it sat up after popping onto the pad, for short leg to gobble it.. 114/4
49.4 to S Chanderpaul, Sunny strikes again, and this the biggie. Chanders is gone on 49. He jumps down the track and gets close to the pitch before looking to work it to midwicket. He may have got a feather on it (replays aren't conclusive) before it hit the pad and popped up to slip. Bangladesh went up in unison, the appeal was upheld, but Chanders shakes his head all the way back to the pavilion.. 137/5
53.3 to MN Samuels, five wickets on Test debut for Elias Sunny! What a legend, already. This was suicidal from Samuels. Tossed up delivery on leg stump, there's no need to play a scoopy inside out drive in the third over of a pointless final day. But that's just what he does, and gives short cover a simple catch.. 152/6
60.3 to CS Baugh, Elias now has the best figures on debut by a Bangladeshi debutant! Well, at least as long as he doesn't concede three more runs. He has bowled Baugh round the legs, with a ball that Shane Warne wouldn't scoff at. Curls around from over the stumps, lands well outside leg and changes direction madly to hit the castle even as Baugh misses the sweep. It is a Sunny morning in Chittagong, alright.. 212/7

Fidel Edwards903704.11406001
Ravi Rampaul1112612.36534000
9.4 to Imrul Kayes, it is an open and shut Kayes for Rampaul. He's been plugging away relentlessly outside off, and Kayes is not the most resilient in that area. He inevitable pokes at one away from the body and the feather carries into Baugh's gloves. Horror shot, that, from a Test opener.. 32/1
Marlon Samuels1634112.56725000
40.2 to Shahriar Nafees, Nafees is gone, chopping Samuels onto the stumps as he plays the most audacious of cuts to a ball barely outside off. It hit the bat near the splice and rolled onto the castle.. 116/3
Daren Sammy61911.50280000
23.2 to Tamim Iqbal, all over for Tamim, again gift-wraps his wicket and puts a ribbon on top. Sammy plugs away on a nagging length, no pace, no room, and Tamim is restless enough to open up the wrists and attempt a ambitious square drive. He edges it and Baugh takes the offering.. 72/2

0.4 to KC Brathwaite, Sunny has struck in his first over! An armer curls in, lands outside off, holds its line and shoots through to hit the front pad even as Brathwaite pushes forward. He wasn't outside the line and that's plumb. Boy, we have a game here!. 5/1
Shahadat Hossain402105.25173002
Shakib Al Hasan613415.66252200
14.2 to LMP Simmons, Simmons falls and with that, I suspect, West Indies slim chances of forcing a win here. Full ball on the middle and leg line, Simmons couldn't quite get under the slog sweep, and I suspect the bad back has a part to play in that. He top-edges the heave and the swirler is taken by Rubel, Aussie-style mind you, at mid-on.. 58/2
