Bangladesh came back impressively after losing the toss on Day one of the second Test at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on Thursday (February 11) against the West Indies. The visitors who made a good start in the first session ended the day at 223 with half of their team back in the pavilion.

Nkrumah Bonner (74) and Joshua Da Silva (22) came back unbeaten at stumps as Taijul Islam and Abu Jayed were the heroes for the bowling side with two wickets each. Earlier in the day, West Indies won the toss and asked Bangladesh to field as Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell came out to bat.

The pair started cautiously as they added 66 runs for the opening stand before Taijul Islam dismissed Campbell. Post lunch, Bangladesh took three wickets as Brathwaite, Sheyne Moseley, and Kyle Mayers were gone within 19 runs to push the batting side on the back foot.

However, Bonner and Jermaine Blackwood stitched 62 runs to bring West Indies close to 200, and then totally against the run of play Bangladesh got a wicket after Blackwood’s leading edge was caught by Abu Jayed of his own bowling. Bonner again came to the rescue with a 45 runs stand with Da Silva to ensure the visitors went to stumps without any loss of wickets.
