Windies assert control after Holder wrecks Bangladesh

Gabriel in the fifth over following the resumption with 10 runs added to the total and Mominul Haque followed two balls later without scoring, edging to Shai Hope at gully.
Tamim struck six fours off 105 balls in just under three hours as he then combined with Shakib in a 59run, third wicket stand to bail Bangladesh out of trouble.
However, Holder struck twice in the space of three deliveries about 20 minutes before tea, to rock Bangladesh once more. He claimed Shakib, playing on attempting to cut one too close to him, and then trapped Mahmudullah on the crease without scoring.
On 92 for four at tea, Bangladesh lost their last six wickets for just 57 runs to be dismissed 25 minutes before the scheduled close.
Tamim carried the fight initially in a 38-run, fifth wicket partnership with Mushfiqur but became Paul’s first wicket in Tests when he played down the wrong line and lost his offstump.
Paul trapped Nurul Hasan lbw next ball to find himself on a hat-trick and even though it was averted, Mushfiqur fell soon afterwards when steered Holder to Hope at gully at 128 for seven.
Holder bowled Taijul Islam with his very next delivery only to discover he had over-stepped but atoned for his indiscretion by getting the same batsman bowled for 16, after speedster Miguel Cummins had gained an lbw verdict against Mehidy Hasan (3).Fittingly, Holder finished off the innings by rattling Abu Jayed’s stumps before the tailender had scored.
