Bangladesh middle-order batsman Naeem Islam hit a fluent and composed century to take Bangladesh past the follow-on mark at Tea. Islam was patient as he brought up his first Test hundred, as the hosts managed to avoid the follow on comfortably on Day Three of the first Test at Mirpur. Bangladesh went into the Tea break at 349 for four, trailing West Indies’ total by 178 runs.

 

Islam was supported by Shakib Al Hasan (89) as the duo put on 167 runs for the fourth wicket, before the latter was dismissed by Ravi Rampaul.

 

Bangladesh lost Tamim Iqbal in the opening session of the day, when he was dismissed by West Indies skipper Darren Sammy. Iqbal was caught by Sunil Narine off a short ball by Sammy. The batsman scored 72 off 71 balls.

 

Earlier, in the West Indies innings, Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Denesh Ramdin frustrated Bangladesh as they took the West Indies to an imposing score of 437-4.

 

Resuming at 361-4, the pair added 76 runs in the morning session as Bangladesh’s attack failed to make a breakthrough on a lifeless pitch at the Shere Bangla stadium.

 

Chanderpaul was unbeaten on 156 and Ramdin, on 84, was approaching his third Test century as the pair extended their fifth wicket partnership to 206.

 

Brief Scores: West Indies 527 for 4 dec (Shivnarine Chanderpaul 203*, Denesh Ramdin 126*, Kieran Powell 117, Denesh Ramdin 84; Sohag Gazi 3 for 145) lead Bangladesh 349 for 4 (Naeem Islam 102*, Shakib Al Hasan 89) by 178 runs.
