SUMMARY: Bangladesh 103 all out from 32.5 overs (Shakib Al Hasan 51, Tamim Iqbal 29, Liton Das 12; Jayden Seales 3-33, Alzarri Joseph 3-33, Kyle Mayers 2-10, Kemar Roach 2-21) & 50-2 from 20 overs (Iqbal 22, Mahmudul Hasan Joy 18*; Joseph 2-14) trail West Indies 265 all out from 112.5 overs (Kraigg Brathwaite 94, Jermaine Blackwood 63, Nkrumah Bonner 33, John Campbell 24, Gudakesh Motie 23*; Mehidy Hasan Miraz 4-59, Khaled Ahmed 2-59, Ebadot Hossain 2-65) by 112 runs


West Indies continue to hold the upper hand in the first Test, with Bangladesh being 50-2 in their second innings, still trailing by 112 runs after West Indies secured a sizeable lead on day two at the Sir Vivian Richards Ground, Antigua.

Starting day two, 95-2, Kraigg Brathwaite was the pillar for the team and he missed out on a deserved century, falling leg before to Khaled Ahmed for 94 from 268 balls.

He shared vital stands with Nkrumah Bonner (33) and Jermaine Blackwood (63) which carried West Indies to safety and into the driver’s seat.

Blackwood did well to hold on to one end as wickets fell at the other before being dismissed by Ahmed.

Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz was the pick of the bowlers for Bangladesh, with four scalps to his name after starting the middle-order slide.

In their second outing with the bat, Bangladesh was rattled yet again as seamer Alzarri Joseph produced a spell of 2-14 which has left them with much to do on the third day.
