West Indies vs Bangladesh, First Test: Bangladesh Focuses on Victory Within Three Days!

Bangladesh are looking to lose within three days after closing the second day of the first Test on Friday at 50 both in their second innings, needing 112 more runs to beat the West Indies again. The West Indies were finally knocked out of their first innings 265 after tea, starting at 95 midnight.

Captain Kraigg Brathwaite bolstered his team's effort with a 400-minute 94-yard touchdown run, backed by 63 of Jermaine Blackwood, the vice-captain who took a page from his leader's workbook as the donation slowed down in his 16 tests. .

For the Bangladeshis, who were forced to bounce back after being hit 103 runs after lunch on the first day, Brathwaite's dismissal began their brilliant season with the home team losing their last seven sticks in 68 runs.

While tailor Khaled Ahmed started the slide by giving the home captain 590 in Test cricket, Mehidy Hasan then snatched the match by getting four of the last six wickets to fall on both sides during tea time.

He also played a key role in the short extra-cover as Blackwood became the ninth wicket-taker in pursuit of quick runs.

However Mehidy’s excitement, as well as his team’s careful satisfaction in reducing the West Indies ’first innings profit from 165 runs, faded quickly when senior opener Tamim Iqbal and Mehidy fell to Alzarri Joseph.

That left Mahmudul Hasan and Najmul Hossain to wage war until the third morning.

Despite his excellent performance against the same opponents on Chattogram 17 months earlier, the fact that Bangladesh's 'tank-tank' saw fit to send Mehidy for more than half an hour seemed to be a revelation telling of their confidence, or lack. thus, in the strength of the midfielder.

Marvelous progress

Not surprisingly, when the pitch continued to give quick bowlers an encouraging move, Mehidy did not stay long, recording his favorite throw-back but managed to give Kyle Mayers a straight hold at first.

Joseph pulled Tamim out of his previous over, an experienced left-handed player followed the ball placed over him so that goalkeeper Joshua da Silva could catch the ball before the first slip.

Bangladesh's dire situation was not to seek the help of its skiers.

With better industry support and the clever use of available television technology, they could significantly limit the lead of the first West Indies innings.

Both Nkrumah Bonner, who also worked as Brathwaite's colleague overnight, and Blackwood were rescinded by decisions that were not on the field when games showed they would not have been released if captain Shakib Al Hasan chose to challenge both decisions.

Bonner, who scored 33 runs in the third-wicket partnership of 62 runs with Brathwaite, also deflected Khaled at a higher grip than Najmul Hossain who initially slipped before slipping off his opposition by throwing him out. -in-edge on the unique success of visitors. in the morning.

Blackwood who used to attack was walking faster than his captain at the start of his innings with only three shots in his first 43 points until lunch break. None of this seemed to bother the couple as they continued to squirm in the afternoon until Khaled, working on the new second ball, received a delivery to Brathwaite and trapped him in such a way that he did not even have an amazing 11th prospect. A hundred-year test just six runs could get him tested.
