Bangladesh’s deep rooted weakness to quick bowling was in proof again with the guests colliding with 103 hard and fast
Bangladesh’s deeply grounded weakness to quick bowling was in proof again with the guests colliding with 103 all out off less than 33 overs in the wake of being set in to bat against the West Indies on the first day of the season of the main Test on Thursday. Intensifying their hardships after an innings that highlighted six ducks – – just the seventh time that has happened in the 145-year history of Test cricket – – was Kraigg Brathwaite being dropped before he had scored with the home commander unbeaten on 42 as they slithered to the end of play at 95 for two in answer.
Jayden Seales and Alzarri Joseph were the best West Indies bowlers with indistinguishable figures of three for 33.
Nonetheless, it was twofold strikes by Kemar Roach and Kyle Mayers which took the early spotlight to have Bangladesh rocking at 45 for six AM.
Returning commander Shakib Al Hasan then played a bold innings of 51 to guarantee his group kept away from a catastrophe like when they were steered for 43 at a similar setting toward the beginning of the 2018 series.
With Brathwaite having no dithering in picking to bowl first, Roach was promptly among the wickets.
Passed fit simply the other day, the senior seamer hit with the second wad of the match as Mahmudul Hasan pushed heedlessly at a wide conveyance for Nkrumah Bonner to take the plunging get at third slip.
Cockroach then bowled Najmul Hossain among bat and cushion in his next over to build the weight on the shoulders of Tamim Iqbal.
“I thought every one of the bowlers changed well to the circumstances since it’s anything but a simple pitch to bowl on,” expressed Roach in considering the quick work which lifted his count of Test wickets to 244, seventh on the unsurpassed rundown of West Indian wicket-takers in Test cricket.
Continuously bowl first
“We saw the pitch yesterday and realized it would be somewhat delicate. Bowling first here in Antigua is in every case best.
“It’s an intense pitch to bat on too and clearly Kraigg has driven the way so ideally, we can construct a decent lead on the subsequent day.”
Straight from hundred years in the solitary warm-up match against a Cricket West Indies President’s XI, Tamim thoroughly searched in the temperament for the test and went past 5,000 runs in Test cricket, joining the missing Mushfiqur Rahim as the main Bangladeshis to arrive at the milestone.
Anyway he lost Monimul Haque to Seales, Jermaine Blackwood trapping the opportunity at second slip, prior to falling himself for 29 when a free leg-side flick at Joseph gave wicketkeeper Joshua da Silva a clear catch.
Mayers, West Indies’ bowling star in the 10-wicket, series-securing triumph over England two months sooner, then got from where he left off in Grenada with two wickets in his opening over.
An uncertain Liton Das nudged forward to give da Silva a straightforward look and two balls up some other time, substitution wicketkeeper-batsman Nurul Hasan fell leg-prior to offering no shot to a major inswinger to turn into the fourth batsman who neglected to score.
Shakib, whose future in Test cricket stayed in uncertainty for the greater part of the beyond a year, lived hazardously in playing a few sweeping shots.
He was fortunate to escape when Seales could get his fingertips to the ball running back from mid-on when the Bangladesh commander hurled at Roach.
He capitalized on the relief, striking six fours and a six to get to a 28th 50 years in Test cricket prior to being 10th out endeavoring one more success off Joseph for Roach to take the catch at long-on.
Joseph then, at that point, dispatched the last man Khaled Ahmed to end the innings 40 minutes after lunch and guarantee his best Test figures.
West Indies endure an early caution in their answer when Mominul missed a sharp catch at leg-slip presented by Brathwaite off Mustafizur Rahman.
Bangladesh were passed on to mourn that miss with the opener trudging through 149 conveyances in the sort of innings which has turned into his brand name.
He lost John Campbell after an initial stand of 44 when the left-hander, who was nearly essentially as common as his commander, played on to Mustafizur.
