Bangladesh vs West Indies: Mehidy Hasan records first century as host directs first test

Mustafizur Rahman claimed two early wickets after Mehidy Hasan hit the virgin Test 100 and topped Bangladesh in the first test against the West Indies on Thursday in Chittagong.

Mehidy hit 103 out of 168 balls and led the host to 430 in the first inning. Then Mustafizur 2-18 helped reduce tourists to 75-2 on the second day stump.

Captain Craig Brasswaite and Nkrumah Bonner sent off John Campbell and Shane Moseley early, and after Mustafizur rattled the visitor, a 51-run uninterrupted third wicket to stop further damage. I put it on the stand.

Both batters were judged by their forefoot and made three and two runs, respectively.

Brasswaite closed at 50 and remained undefeated at 49 alongside Debutante Bonner, 17 was not out.

Mehidy, the last man to be fired in an inning in Bangladesh, pierced a catch on behalf of Kavem Hodge at the off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall.

Shakibu Al-Hasan also hit 68 as Bangladesh dominated the West Indies bowler and resumed play that day at 242-5, adding 188 runs in two sessions.

Left-handed spinner Jomel Warrican is the top bowler in the West Indies and has won four wickets in 133 runs.

Warrikan hit early on the second day, when he bowled batter Litondas (38) all night on the third day of the day.

Liton was able to add just four runs to his overnight score, but Shakeve and Mehdi regained momentum with a 67-run partnership in the seventh Wicket.

The partnership ended when Shakib hit a five force with a patient’s 150-ball knock and then at some point made a loose shot to Brasswaite.

Visitors dropped Mehdi at 24:00 as Moseley put a simple catch on a stupid point off. It would have given Warikan a test hole for the Maiden’s 5 wickets.

All-rounders took full advantage of it and formed two major partnerships with Taijuru Islam and Nayemhasan, 44 runs and 57 runs, respectively.

Taijuru was 18 years old before being fired by Shannon Gabriel because Joshua da Silva caught behind the stump.

Nayeem made 24 out of 46 balls with four boundaries before being bowled by Debutante Bonner on his first test wicket.

Mehidy swept Warrican and dropped 100 balls of 160, but soon lost his wicket to Cornwall, ending Bangladesh’s innings.

Cornwall finished 2-114 and Mustafizur was undefeated in three runs
