Dhaka: Nov 2, 2011
The West Indies grabbed three vital wickets on the fifth morning to leave Bangladesh tottering in the second and final cricket Test in Dhaka on Wednesday.
Bangladesh, who were set an improbable victory target of 508 runs, moved their second innings from the overnight score of 164-3 to 263-6 by lunch on the fifth day at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium.
The tourists, who dismissed opener Tamim Iqbal, skipper Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan in the morning session, need four more wickets to wrap up the Test and win the series 1-0.
The first Test in Chittagong was drawn.
Tamim, Bangladesh's main batting hope who resumed at 82, added just one more run when he was caught in the slips off leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo in the day's third over.
The left-hander's 83 contained eight boundaries and a six.
Shakib and Rahim raised visions of a Bangladesh fightback when they put on 88 runs for the fifth wicket, before both batsmen fell in the space of four runs.
Shakib made 55 when he tried to steer West Indies captain Darren Sammy to third man, but only managed to sky a catch to Shivnarine Chanderpaul running back from the slip region.
Rahim took his overnight score of 33 to 69 when he was bowled by a superb delivery from Bishoo that spun in sharply from leg to clip the off-stump.
Bishoo went to lunch with figures of 2-82 from 21 overs, while Sammy had 2-16 from 10 overs.
