West Indies topples Bangladesh at 62 for 6 by end of Day 2
West Indies bowlers toppled Bangladesh at 62 runs in the second innings.

Bangladesh toppled in the second inning of the Test against West Indies again at 62 for 6 by the end of the second day. Earlier, in the first inning, the total score of 43 was the lowest in the team history. While in the first inning, it was Kemar Roach who wreaked the havoc. In the next, Shannon Gabriel became a nightmare for West Indies so far. Roach rested in the second day fielding to relieve his soaring hamstring. Roach was included in the Test series despite of this ailing hamstring. In the innings, Tamim Iqbal became the first Bangladesh player to reach 4000 Test runs. The match, however, was dominated by Indies players who scored high runs with the bat, while setting the wickets ablaze.

West Indies scored 406 runs in the first inning, aided with a century off Kraigg Brathwaite and the half century of Shia Hope. Indies attained a first inning lead of 363 runs. The team started the day at 201 for 2, with Braithwaite and Davendra Bishoo as the night watchmen. In the day, Braithwaite added 52 runs with Bishoo, starting the day at 88 runs. He was also dropped by Liton Das at 110, but it hardly mattered for the team. In 69.3 overs, the players added 205 runs to the total tally.

Finally, Bangladesh bowlers forayed into the line up with spin options. Mehidy Hasan and Shakib Al-Hasan had the top wickets taking down the middle order. Still, Kemar Roach showed up his batting prowess plundering six fours and a six by the final session. In the innings, Bangladesh bowlers Mehidy Hassan and Abu Jayed, the debutant, shared three wickets each, while Shakib Al-Hasan had two wickets.

As Bangladesh took on the pitch to bat, Gabriel took control of the wickets. His bounce and pace attack were enough to set off the wobble again for Bangladesh. The bowler removed Tamim Iqbal and Mominul Haque in a gap of the single ball. Meanwhile, Jason Holder offered some relief to Bangladesh batsmen, still taking down Liton Das with an out swinger.
