Dowrich falls to raise Bangladesh's hopes of a win


A- A A+

Bangladesh have reduced West Indies to 11/4 at lunch, falling the visitors in deep trouble in chase of 204 in the first Test.

The visitors lost four wickets as captain Shakib Al Hasan and left-arm orthodox Taijul Islam each fired twice early because Tigers hoped for a turnaround.

Bangladesh have been wrapped up for 125 with last four wickets added only 56 runs, setting a 204-run target for West Indies in Chattogram.

The visitors still need 193 runs to win this game when it was brilliant for Bishoo who finished with four wickets in today’s Bangladesh innings on the Day 3 play.

Bangladesh’s Mahmudullah top-scored for Bangladesh in the second essay with 31.

The hosts lost six wickets early in the second innings despite being a comfortable position taking first innings lead against visiting West Indies in the first Test of the two-match series at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Bangladesh.

At yesterday’s play, Soumya Sarkar had a second failure for Bangladesh while Shakib Al Hasan's dismissal was the biggest moment for the Tigers against the visitors.

Bangladesh dramatically collapsed as the host lost wickets of Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, first innings centurion Mominul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Mithun in a quick succession as Tigers started their second innings yesterday afternoon.

Bangladesh resumed the Day 3 of the Chittagong Test on 55/5, a lead of 133.

Bangladesh: Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Nayeem Hasan.

West Indies: Kraigg Brathwaite (capt), Kieran Powell, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Sunil Ambris, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Jomel Warrican, Kemar Roach, Devendra Bishoo.
