West Indies in trouble against Bangladesh

Published:Monday | July 20, 2009 | 8:45 AM

The West Indies, leading by five runs on first innings, will enter this morning’s fourth day of the second and final Test against Bangladesh on 192-8 at the National Stadium in Grenada.

David Bernard Junior will resume on 61, while Tino Best is undefeated on four.

The host, who resumed yesterday on 56-1 in their second innings, now lead by 197 runs with two wickets in hand.

Bernard was the only batsman to score a half century on yesterday’s third day, which was affected by rain. The entire final session was washed out.

Travis Dowlin chipped in with 49, while Omar Phillips got 29 and Darren Sammy 22.

Bowling for Bangladesh, captain Shakib-al-Hasan claimed 4-61 and fellow left-arm spinner Enamul Haque Junior grabbed 2-42.

Bangladesh need only a draw to claim their second series win in their history.

They are facing a second-string West Indies side missing its big names through strike action.
