Khulna, Nov 24, 2012

The West Indies finished on 648 soon after lunch on the fourth day of the second and final Test against Bangladesh in Khulna on Saturday, taking a big 261-run lead in the first innings.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul was unbeaten on 150 with number eleven batsman Tino Best unable to bat due to injury.

Bangladesh had made 387 in their first innings. The West Indies lead the two-Test series 1-0.

Left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan took four wickets as West Indies reached 639/8 at lunch.

The 25-year-old spinner became only the second Bangladesh bowler to complete 100 wickets in Test cricket as he dismissed four batsmen in the morning session but the West Indies still managed to stretch their lead to 252 runs.

At the interval Chanderpaul was unbeaten on 143.

Shakib took two wickets in successive overs twice to reduce the West Indies who resumed at 564-4.

This becomes West Indies’ highest total in a Test against Bangladesh, improving on the 559/4 declared they managed at Kingston eight years ago.

Shakib was able to turn the ball and beat the batsmen consistently. He provided the home team with the breakthrough, getting Denesh Ramdin caught behind off a wild shot for 31.

Ramdin added 75 runs for the fifth wicket with Chanderpaul.

Two balls later, Shakib forced an edge off Darren Sammy which was well caught by Mohammad Mahmudullah in the slips to complete his 100 Test wickets.

He then removed Veerasammy Permaul (13) and Sunil Narine in the last over before lunch.

Left-arm spinner Mohammad Rafique was the only other Bangladeshi bowler to get 100 wickets in Test cricket.

West Indies lead the two-match series 1-0 on account of their 77-run win in last week’s first Test in Dhaka.

Brief Scores: Bangladesh 387 (Abul Hasan 113, Mahmudullah 76; Fidel Edwards 6 for 90, Darren Sammy 3 for 74) trail West Indies 639 for 8 (Marlon Samuels 260, Shivnarine Chanderpaul 143*, Darren Bravo 127; Shakib Al Hasan 4 for 146) by 252 runs.
