Abu Jayed trig­gered a West Indies col­lapse and Me­hidy Hasan com­pleted a five-wicket haul as Bangladesh dis­missed the home side for 354 be­fore lunch on Fri­day, on the sec­ond day of the sec­ond and fi­nal Test in Kingston, Ja­maica.

Medium-pacer Jayed snared three of the six wick­ets to fall while spin­ner Me­hidy claimed two off suc­ces­sive balls to add to three on the first day and fin­ish with five for 93.

Bangladesh, thrashed by an in­nings and 219 runs in­side three days in An­tigua a week ear­lier, reached lunch in Kingston at ten with­out loss af­ter Tamim Iqbal and Li­ton Das safely ne­go­ti­ated two overs from Shan­non Gabriel and debu­tant Keemo Paul.

Start­ing the day in the rel­a­tively com­fort­able po­si­tion of 295 for four, West Indies lost Shim­ron Het­myer for 86 af­ter he had added just two runs. The left han­der edged a de­liv­ery from Jayed to keeper Nu­rul Hasan. Bangladesh were fur­ther heart­ened by the dis­missal of overnight bats­man, Ros­ton Chase as he was trapped leg-be­fore by Jayed.

Left-armer Tai­jul Is­lam then re­moved wicketkeeper-bats­man Shane Dowrich, who fell to a jug­gling catch at cover by Me­hidy off a lead­ing edge. Me­hidy re­moved Paul for a duck in his maiden Test in­nings, caught bat-pad by Mominul Haque. The spin­ner reached the five-wicket mile­stone off the next ball get­ting Miguel Cum­mins lbw.

On song: Ban­galdesh’s Abu Jayed.
