Tigers put up a fight in Jamaica
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.
