Windies Staring Down The Barrel Against Bangladesh

The West indies crumbled against the Bangladeshi spin ending day 2 of their second test in Mirpur at 75-5, still 433 runs behind hosts, who made 508 in their first innings. Starting the day on 259-5, the Tigers piled on the runs as Mahmudullah scored his third ton and second in three matches.

Mahmadullah ended up making 136 before being bowled by Jomel Warrican as captain Shakib al Hasan with 80 also added to Shadman Islam’s opening day 76. It was the first time for Bangladesh that all eleven batsmen got into double figures.
