Captain Mominul Haque scored his 10th Test century and off-spinner Mehidy Hasan continued his good form with the ball for Bangladesh on the fourth day of the first match against West Indies in Chattogram on Saturday.
Mominul’s 115 helped Bangladesh set a fearsome target of 395 runs for West Indies. The left-handed batsman also breached the 3000-run mark in the format in the process.
At the end of the day, the visitors reached 110-3, with two debutants Kyle Mayers (37) and Nkrumah Bonner (15) staying unbeaten. Mehidy (3-52) took all three wickets.
Resuming the day at 47-3, Bangladesh declared its second innings after making 223-8 with Liton Das playing an important role alongside the skipper. Liton struck 69 and accumulated 133 runs for the fifth-wicket with Mominul to keep the visitors frustrated.
