Stumps at day Two!! A day belongs to Kraigg Brathwaite who made his maiden double century. He and Shivnarine Chanderpaul played out the whole day. Chanderpaul also got his 64th Test half century. Only 56 overs play was possible in the whole day. West Indies scored only 143 runs in these 56 overs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rubel Hossain bowls the first over of the day, and is dispatched for a boundary in just his second delivery by Shivnarine Chanderpaul. However, in his next over, Hossain appeals for caught-behind as there is a distinct sound, but the umpire gives it not out! Bangladesh review, and the replays suggest that the on-field umpire was right!

 


 

The covers have come off and play is scheduled to resume at 17:30 GMT. Picking up early wickets will be the key for Bangladesh.


 

The news we have now is that the covers have come off. But we have to wait and see if play can begin after lunch.

 


 

 

Rain has stopped play, and there will be no play until after lunch.

 


 

Hello, and welcome to Cricket Country’s coverage of Day two of the first Test between West Indies and Bangladesh at St Vincent. Sameer Jha and Sandipan Banerjee  will be bringing you the live updates of the match.

West Indies finished day one of the first Test against Bangladesh at 264 for three. 87 overs of play were possible in the day and the hosts made the full use of it. The highlight of the day for West Indies was their opener Kraigg Brathwaite‘s second Test ton. He remained not out on 124 with Shivnarine Chanderpaul, who came to crease just before rain stopped play for the day.

Earlier Bangladesh had earlier won the toss and their captain Mushfiqur Rahim had elected to field. The West Indies openers started off on a slow note, scoring only 13 runs off the first five overs. The duo of Chris Gayle and Brathwaite began to pick the pace up as the run flow steadily increased. The first couple of boundaries were scored in the fourth over, which was followed by 12 more such shots and a six. Eventually West Indies put on a strong opening partnership in the first session of play to post 103 runs without the loss of a wicket at Lunch.

Five years ago, when Bangladesh last played a Test series in this part of the world, they achieved a historic triumph by defeating a depleted West Indies team.

Squads:

West Indies: Chris Gayle, Kraigg Brathwaite, Kirk Edwards, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Jermaine Blackwood, Denesh Ramdin (c&wk), Jason Holder, Jerome Taylor, Kemar Roach, Sulieman Benn.

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Imrul Kayes, Shamsur Rahman, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim (c&wk), Mahmudullah, Shuvagata Hom, Nasir Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Al-Amin Hossain.
