Commentary (West Indies innings)

With Best injured, that will be the end of the Windies innings. They have amassed a mammoth 648/9 with a huge lead of 261. On the flipside, It is probably good for the fans that their innings came to an end as they never looked to attack, nor declare. The hosts will come out to bat now as they try to close in on the runs they trail by behind the tourists after being in the field for over thirteen hours.

200.3 S Gazi to F Edwards, OUT! No his claim doesn't last anymore! Shortish and spinning away, Edwards tries to push it with a horizontal bat shot as the ball takes the edge and goes to Shakib who's involvement with the wickets continues, this time through a catch at first slip. That will be the end of the innings as Best is absent hurt. 648/9

200.2 S Gazi to Edwards, Flighted outside off, driven nicely through the covers for a couple. He wants to show that if Abul Hasan can do it, so can he. 648/8

Chanderpaul gets to his 5th 150+ score. Chanderpaul is probably the wall in Test cricket today after Dravid's retirement.

200.1 S Gazi to Chanderpaul, Short outside off, pushed to the covers for a run to get to his 150. 646/8

199.6 Al Hasan to Edwards, And what does Edwards do to make a mockery of the field? Plays a perfect front foot defense to a flighted delivery on off stump back on to the wicket. 645/8

Two slips, silly point, leg slip and a forward short leg to add on to a short mid-wicket in place for Edwards.

199.5 Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, Flighted on the pads, Chanders drives it down to long on for one. 645/8

199.4 Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, Slow through the air, Chanderpaul stands his ground and pushes it back to Shakib. 644/8

199.3 Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, FOUR! A freebie! Full toss on middle, Chanderpaul chips it into the gap at deep mid-wicket and picks up a boundary. 644/8

199.2 Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, Pats it back to Shakib off the back foot. 640/8

199.1 Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, He wastes this delivery. Wide outside off, left alone by Chanders. Did Shakib forget that he was on a hat-trick? 640/8

Shakib will bowl from the other end and he is on a hat-trick.

198.6 S Gazi to Edwards, Gets behind it on off and taps it back on to the pitch. 640/8

198.1 S Gazi to Chanderpaul, Flighted outside off, pushed to the covers off the front foot. 639/8

The players are back on the field and ready to resume play. Shakib ended the last session with two consecutive wickets and will be on a hat-trick when he bowls next. Fidel Edwards has replaced Narine as Chanderpaul takes strike against Gazi.

Bangladesh will try to wrap up the Windies innings after play resumes in a while. Join us for the second session which promises to be more interesting than the first.

The second hour after the start of play today has been very eventful as West Indies' slow approach cost them dearly. They have lost four wickets in quick succession, all to Shakib Al Hasan who got to his 100th Test wicket. The lead stands at a healthy 252 as the teams go into the lunch break.

197.6 Al Hasan to Narine, OUT! Back to back wickets for Shakib now and that will be Lunch on day 4. Flights it outside off, Narine goes for a booming drive only to get an inside edge on to the pads which lobs up to Nafees at forward short leg to gift Shakib his fourth wicket. 639/8

Sunil Narine, who couldn't do much with the ball comes in to bat.

The 101st wicket in Tests and the 200th in first class matches for Shakib. He is creating some personal records for himself.

197.5 Al Hasan to Permaul, OUT! Shakib gets his third! Flighted outside off, Permaul drives uppishly to Gazi at short extra cover who takes a bullet and catches it between his palms comfortably. 639/7

197.4 Al Hasan to Permaul, Continues attacking, tries to sweep it and gets a top edge and goes in front of square for a couple. 639/6

197.3 Al Hasan to Permaul, SIX! Right out of the screws! Gets down on one knee and lofts it way over the mid-wicket boundary for a maximum. All five biggies in the innings have been hit off Shakib's bowling. 637/6

197.2 Al Hasan to V Permaul, Another turner! Gets it to come in and turns after pitching, takes the shoulder of the bat and dies down on the off side safely. 631/6

197.1 Al Hasan to S Chanderpaul, Short on the body, pulled away to deep square leg for a run. 631/6

196.6 N Islam to Permaul, Spins in to middle stump from outside off, turned down to forward short leg. 630/6

196.5 N Islam to V Permaul, FOUR! Sense prevails! Permaul rocks back to this long hop and pulls it to the mid-wicket boundary powerfully. 630/6

The only time the hosts batted on the last day to save a Test match was against the estranged Zimbabweans way back in 2002 at Dhaka. It will take some batting by them to save this one tomorrow as they are not known to play a lot of overs anyway.

196.4 N Islam to Permaul, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 626/6

196.3 N Islam to V Permaul, Comes forward and drives it to mid off. 626/6

193.6 Al Hasan to Permaul, Permaul comes quietly forward and pushes it past the close in fielders to point. End of an eventful over! 621/6

V. Permaul has come out to replace his captain. Two slips and a silly point for him.

Shakib has got to his 100th Test wicket. He is just the second Bangladesh bowler to do so after Mohammad Rafique who reached there ages ago. Rafique, however, stayed on 100.

193.5 Al Hasan to D Sammy, OUT! Sammy doesn't need to bother whether to hold back or not. Second wicket of the over! Angled in and straightens, Sammy comes forward and tries to defend. The ball takes the edge and goes to Mahmudullah at first slip who fumbles in the first attempt, but pouches it cleanly on the second. Another second attempt catch in the same over then. 621/6

Let us hope that Sammy does not hold back his shots.

193.4 Al Hasan to Sammy, Slow on the leg stump, turned down quietly to the on side. 621/5

193.3 Al Hasan to Sammy, Bowls it quick and flat, Sammy pats it back to Shakib. 621/5

Vice captain gone, captain walks him to replace him.

193.2 Al Hasan to Ramdin, OUT! Ramdin has been put out of his misery! He goes for a slog sweep and gets an edge which lobs straight next to Ramdin on the off side. Rahim comes forward and tries to gobble it on the first attempt and misses. As the ball is about to meet the ground, he puts in another dive and snatches it inches off the ground to dismiss the fellow keeper. Shakib looks relieved as he moves to 99 wickets. 621/5

193.1 Al Hasan to Ramdin, Comes forward and blocks it back to the bowler. 621/4

192.1 N Islam to Chanderpaul, Flighted outside off slowly. The ball grips the wicket and beats Chanderpaul's defenses as it spins away past the edge. 619/4

Naeem Islam has been asked to bowl now.

191.6 Al Hasan to Ramdin, Slow flight outside off, Ramdin comes half forward and tries to drive as he misses the ball. Ramdin is stationary in the crease, not trying to chip down or even move way back. 619/4

191.5 Al Hasan to Ramdin, Darts it down the leg side, Ramdin leaves it alone. 619/4

190.2 S Gazi to Chanderpaul, FOUR! Smartly done! Chanderpaul waits on this short delivery outside off and cuts it nearly off the keeper's gloves, fine towards the third man fence, beating the dive put in by the fielder who gave it a good chase. 617/4

190.1 S Gazi to Chanderpaul, Flighted on off, Chanders comes down a few paces and drives the ball back to Gazi. 613/4

West Indies are already a pacer down. Now, it is Bangladesh's turn as Gazi will continue.

Abul Hasan has been brought into the attack. He came up to the crease to bowl twice and pulled out on both occasions. He is feeling some sting on his strapped left hand. It is the pull back thrust at the point of delivery of his front, left hand which is causing him the pain it seems. The magic spray is out but he pulls himself out of the attack.

This is the highest total by any team against Bangladesh, beating India's 610. Do not get mistaken that Bangladesh have had good bowling attacks in the past. Seems like teams playing against them have never needed to score any more than that.

188.6 S Gazi to Ramdin, Length on the pads, flicked away uppishly to mid-wicket. The ball falls just short of the fielder. The Bangladeshis had got excited on that ball for sure. West Indies lead by 219. 606/4

188.1 S Gazi to Chanderpaul, Opens the face and guides the ball to the gully fielder. 605/4

A 'fresher than yesterday' Bangladesh have walked out to take the field as Chanderpaul and Ramdin stroll out too. The vice-captain, Ramdin will face Rubel Hossain.

Pitch - It still looks flat with the bowler's foot marks. The cracks haven't widened either and the contours remain the same as they were on day 1. The spinners will look to target on the rough patches. Apart from that, there won't be any help for the bowlers.

All said from the West Indies' point of view, Bangladesh will try to take some quick wickets early in the first session and try to keep the lead down to as less as possible. It won't be an easy task though.

Good morning and welcome to the coverage of day 4 of the second Test between Bangladesh and West Indies at Khulna. The tourists piled on the runs yesterday and have a lead of 177. The order of the day should be quick runs and the extension of the lead. Post that, they will put the hosts in and try to wrap up their innings as soon as possible.

The Bangladesh bowlers looked flat today and had no answers to the rock solid defense shown by Samuels and Chanderpaul. Join us tomorrow for the coverage of the 4th day's play. Goodbye till then!

The last session saw 102 runs being scored with the sole wicket of double centurion Marlon Samuels. However, Chanderpaul scored a second consecutive century to propel the tourists extending the lead to 177 runs. The Windies will come out tomorrow and try to set a huge lead for the hosts to chase down so that they don't have to bat again.

New ball taken, burying the theory down, under the grave.

160.2 R Hossain to Chanderpaul, Pitched up and well outside off, left alone once again. Probably, Rahim wants Rubel to get into a rhythm and see if he is making the batsmen play more often than leave. Only then he might take the new ball. 518/3

160.1 R Hossain to Chanderpaul, Angled across the batsman, Chanders leaves it alone. 518/3

Rahim hasn't opted for the new ball. However, he has brought Rubel Hossain in to bowl. A slip and a gully in place for Chanders.

We go into the last drinks break of the day as we go past 160 overs in the match. Rahim has the option of going for the second new ball now. This is a length drinks break, seems like the tired fielders don't want to see an end to it and are sipping down the fluids slowly. In all it was a 12 minute break, almost a mini-tea break.

The tired looking Bangladesh bowlers have strolled out to the middle wearily as the Windies batsmen come out to the middle. Chanderpaul will face the first ball of the final session from Gazi.

At Tea on day 3, the Windies lead Bangladesh by 75 runs. Samuels got to his double hundred and went into his shell while Chanderpaul got to his half century with a mix of good defensive batting and attacking strokes. The Bangladeshi bowlers could not do much as they bowled patiently waiting for the batsmen to make errors, but in vain. Hopefully, the Windies will up the ante in the final session, do join us to see if they do so in a few minutes.

A hairline fracture has been detected on the index finger of Abul Hasan's bottom hand. But, the physio has declared him fit enough to carry the bat and play.

Pitch - There is just one difference on the track today. There are some bowler's footmarks near the crease for the left handers. Apart from that this should continue to be a beauty for the batsmen.

Bangladesh worked their way from a poor position to a commendable one by the end of play yesterday. Now, they will try to consolidate with two set batsmen at the crease even though they are left with just two wickets. Can the Windies pick those two wickets early enough? Lets find out.

A Test hundred on debut by a batsman who was chosen to play as a bowler and a miraculous rescue is what we witnessed on day 1. Hello and welcome to the coverage of day 2 of the second Test between the West Indies and Bangladesh at Khulna which is hosting its first Test.

When they come out tomorrow, Bangladesh will try to pile up more runs and put the Windies under some pressure when they walk out to bat. After a scintillating day's play, Bangladesh will feel that they have had the last laugh. Do join us for the coverage of day 2 tomorrow. Until then, goodbye!

Mahmudullah, the more of the two recognized batsmen, gave him good support at the other end stringing up 72 valuable runs. From the West Indies, Fidel Edwards displayed some good old ball bowling, picking up a five wicket haul. However, the West Indies missed a trick or two allowing the Bangladesh batsmen to get away with the game.

Who would have thought that Bangladesh would get out of the rut they found themselves in after being reduced to 193/8. In came Abul Hasan and played a gem of a knock to score a century on debut and bail his country out of deep waters. He looked positive right from the beginning of the innings.

Abul Hasan has scored a hundred on debut and that too at number 10. What an innings this has been, an absolute treat to the eye. He becomes the third Bangladesh batsman to have scored a century on debut. He becomes just the 4th no. 10 batsman to score a hundred.

84.6 R Hossain to Samuels, FOUR! One more edge boundary! Length on off, moves away after pitching, squaring Samuels once again as the ball is edged down to the third man boundary, beating the chase put in by the fielder. 250/2

84.5 R Hossain to Samuels, A jaffer there! A good length ball, straightens after coming in with the angle. Samuels is squared up and is beaten by a feather. Rahim, however, fumbles behind the stumps. He will be happy that Samuels did not edge it. 246/2

83.6 A Hasan to M Samuels, FOUR! Close to being a wicket! Length ball on off stump. Samuels opens the face and finds an edge which goes just past a diving Rahim to the boundary behind him. This boundary brings up the 200-run stand between this pair. 245/2

Pitch - It still looks like a good strip for batting today. The rough outside the left handers' off stump has darkened. But, if the batsmen play like the Windies pair at the crease have, it shouldn't be a problem.

The crowds have come in huge numbers today, being a Friday and a holiday in Bangladesh.

Welcome to the coverage of day 3 of the second Test between Bangladesh and West Indies. The tourists had moved into a formidable position by the end of day 2 courtesy Samuels and Bravo. They will try to carry on the good work and take a lead, passing the Bangladesh total.

Mushfiqur Rahim will face Permaul as play resumes after Tea

Welcome back to the final session of play on day 1. West Indies have remained on top of the hosts for most parts of the day. They will look to dominate the final session as well. It will be interesting to see if the hosts can savour some pride by putting up a respectable total before getting all out.

The wicket of Nasir Hossain on 52, on the stroke of Tea sees the Windies ahead with just one wicket away from the tail. They have a good chance of taking the remaining four wickets in the final session and wrap up the Bangladesh innings. Do join us for the post tea session in a few minutes.

The Windies have picked up three more wickets in the post lunch session as they go in for a cup of tea. The Bangladesh batsmen threw away their wickets after getting a good eye in. This session, however, saw good attacking strokeplay by Nasir Hossain and Mushfiqur Rahim who put up 87 runs between them.

We are back for the second session. Naeem Islam to face Darren Sammy. A slip and gully in place.

Tamim Iqbal and Shahriyar Nafees looked good for a while but threw away their wickets after getting set. They would be tremendously disappointed as they left their team in some trouble with having lost three wickets. Sammy did not give up even though he knew there was no seam or swing in the wicket ending up with two good wickets. The bowlers will try to cut into the Bangladesh middle order in the next session. Hopefully, the Bangladeshi batsmen will put up a fight. Join us back for the second session in a while.

The pitch did not have any wildlings in it. But, the Windies bowlers stuck to a good line, especially captain Sammy. The Bangladesh batsmen did not have much trouble playing their shots freely most of the time. However, it was the defensive shots that gave them in. In 26 overs, they scored 88 runs at a good rate.
