Bangladesh vs. West Indies, 2nd Test: Nkrumah Bonner continued his form from the 1st Test match and was on top form against the home side’s bowlers on Day 1 in Dhaka.
On the opening day of the second and final Test in Dhaka on Thursday, Nkrumah Bonner scored an unbeaten half-century as the West Indies and Bangladesh shared the honors.

After skipper Kraigg Brathwaite won the toss and elected to bat first at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, Bonner reached 74, leading the West Indies to 223-5 at stumps. Wicketkeeper-batsman Joshua Da Silva was unbeaten at the close on 22nd next to Bonner.

Pacer Abu Jayed (2-46) and left-arm spinner Taijul Islam (2-64) were Bangladesh’s most effective bowlers, who would win the match to prevent a two-test series loss.

As the West Indies grabbed the early momentum, Brathwaite hit 47 from 122 balls before the hosts clawed their way back into the game.

The first breakthrough was made by Taijul, dismissing John Campbell lbw for 36 to conclude his 66-run opening stand with Brathwaite.

After he attempted a sweep off a flighted delivery only to miss the line, Campbell checked the decision in vain.

After West Indies resumed the post-lunch session with 84-1, Shayne Moseley dragged one-off Jayed to be bowled for seven.

Occasional pace bowler Soumya caused an edge from Brathwaite caught by Najmul Hossain at first slip.
After hitting four fours in his dodged innings, Brathwaite, who looked firm until his only loose shot of the day, departed.

By dismissing first Test hero Kyle Mayers, who was caught at slip by Soumya, Jayed delivered a telling blow.
In the final session, Taijul then took a catch off his bowling to strip Jermaine Blackwood for 28.
