Bangladesh debutant Shadman Islam displayed glimpses of his talent with a steady 36 not out in 116 balls, helping Bangladesh to 87/2 at lunch on the opening day of the 2nd Test Bangladesh vs West Indies Test match at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka.
However, Shadman and fellow opener Soumya Sarkar had little trouble negotiating the spin taking their team to 42 in the 16th over, until Chase got one to toss up and Sarkar lost his concentration, driving it on the up only to take the edge to the lone slip. He departed for 19.
In walked in-form Mominul Haque and in company of Shadman he took the team’s total past the 50-run mark and looked in good nick during his 46-ball stay, that came to an end in the last over before lunch.
Roach was the wicket-taker when Haque tried to pull a length ball only to lob it to mid-on. He departed for 29.
Brief Scores: Bangladesh 87/2 (Shadman Islam 36*, Roston Chase 1/21) vs West Indies
