West Indies seamers Anderson Phillip, Jayden Seales, Alzarri Joseph and Kyle Mayers all picked up a wicket each in the second session as Bangladesh went into the break at 159 for six on the opening day of the second Test in St Lucia.

Phillip picked up his second wicket, trapping Anamul Haque in front for 23. The very next over Kyle Mayers also got one to nip back which trapped Najmul Hossain Shanto leg before wicket for 26 at 105 for four.

Twenty runs later, captain Shakib Al Hasan was bowled by Seales for eight after which Joseph had wicket-keeper Nurul Hasan caught behind for seven.

Liton Das is still carrying on the fight for the visitors with 34 not out. With him is Mehidy Hasan who is unbeaten on five. Phillip has so far picked up two wickets for 30 runs while Joseph has taken two for 37.
