Lon West Indies 409 and 98 for 6 (Bonner 30 *, Da Silva 20 *, Islam 2-31) ahead Bangladesh 296 with 211 runs

An unbroken partnership for the seventh wicket worth 25 between Nkrumah Bonner (30 *) and Joshua Da Silva (20 *) positively halted a middle order for the West Indies against some of Bangladesh’s controlled bowling, as which Mirpur range started taking more foot and also offered some movement to seam on the morning of day four. Abu Jayed was the most impressive bowler for Bangladesh, who was able to pick the biggest wickets in the first session on any day of this Test, while Taijul Islam kept things tight in a spell of 11 overs without a break to start the day.

Da Silva came to a crease with the West Indies at 73 for 6, and started to annoy all the spinners by pulling out an anti-Islam sweep for four to shift his score. He appeared quietly throughout the rest of his time, with a slow sweep against Nayeem Hasan, and a cover shot against Jayed leading the West Indies over 200. Bonner was hard at the other end. , positioning itself to bat through the guts to stretching the entire lead from where the West Indies can still be pushing for victory.

Earlier, Bangladesh made a tight grip on scoring after the first generous trip of the day from Jayed to Bonner. Jayed, who was unused for any of the 21 overs hit on the third afternoon, erred both in line and in the length of his first four balls, allowing Bonner to whip towards a deep mid-wicket and a deep back square foot, as well as driving towards a deep cover. Spokesman Richard Illingworth, however, with a word from Bonner about going to the middle of the park, would record one official warning after a word with him.

Jayed, who was quick to correct his line and length after the opening of the pass, delivered the first wicket of the day when he hit outfielder Jomel Warrican in front of the stumps before adding to the his night vision. That led to Kyle Mayers to crease, and he shook a short ball first through the gap between mid-forward and mid-wicket for four emphatic. Off the last ball of the Jayed over, however, the Mayers went ahead with a bat near pad, and appeared to have sent a margin through to Liton Das, but Bangladesh chose not to reconsider.

Jayed would not have to wait long for his release, with Mayers playing around on his paddles and catching in front of one angling from around the wicket from the sailor while on 6. Jermain Blackwood showed early resolution, lifting the leg of his third ball. from Jayed over a long period of time for an elegant six. However, at 9, he suffered Taijul Islam, leaving economically at the other end, almost immediately after drinks. Islam made him stretch forward, spin the ball over his edge, and Das knocked the bailiffs off with the back leg of the stick still on the line.

Perhaps driven out of failure to make a legitimate review against the Mayers, Bangladesh went for a man against Bonner against Hasan spin, when the umpire Illingworth had filed an attractive claim. The bat was far from the body, as the ball went off its thigh, and the Bangladeshi players were left with a red face for the worst possible review in recent times. However, they know with the pitch playing up, they have a chance to knock out the West Indies in the second session and then it will be up to their bats to play the series. balance.
