Bangladesh cricketer Nayeem Hasan acknowledges the crowd after getting wickets during the second day of the first Test cricket match between Bangladesh and West Indies at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong on November 23, 2018. Spinner Nayeem Hasan became the youngest bowler to bag five wickets on Test debut on Friday, but his achievement was slightly overshadowed by five batsmen getting out in 15 overs near the end of the second day of the first Test against West Indies.
The hosts now have 55 for 5 in their second innings, extending the lead to 133. Mushfiqur Rahim (11) and Mehidy Hasan Miraz (0) are batting and the fans will hope the duo will set the visitors a big target.
Mohammad Mithun made 17 while Mominul Haque added 12 and Soumya Sarkar managed 11. Shakib Al Hasan survived just two balls, giving a catch to Shanon Gabriel off a Jomel Warrican delivery after scoring one.
The day saw fall of 17 wickets in total, something that did not go well with some of the fans.
In the first innings, the visiting side looked on the way to a strong comeback as long as Shimron Hetmyer was in the crease, but once Miraz put an end to his innings, Nayeem mopped the tail to give the hosts a 78-run lead.
Taijul Islam drew the first blood by trapping Kieran Powell (14) leg before on 29 and Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan removed West Indies skipper Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai Hope in the same over to leave the Windes side on 31 for 3.
Brathwaite made 13 while Hope could score no more than a solitary run.
Roston Chase and Sunil Ambris now added 46 in the fourth wicket before Nayeem claimed both of their wickets in consecutive overs.
Up came Hetmyer, hammering 63 off 45 balls thanks to five fours and four sixes until a superb Mehidy Hasan Miraz delivery cut his adventures short.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Shane Dowrich was unbeaten on 63, but Nayeem made sure he did not get support from the lower-order to close the gap.
In the morning, Jomel Warrican claimed the wickets of Nayeem Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman in the space of three balls as the hosts could only add nine to their first days total.
The hosts first innings ended on 324, with Taijul Islam unbeaten on 39.
