Sports Desk: Bangladesh were all out for 324 in 92.4 overs in their first innings during day two of their first Test match against the West Indies at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium Friday.

Resuming on their overnight score of 315 for the loss of eight wickets in 88 overs, the Tigers added nine in 4.4 overs before losing their remaining two wickets.

West Indies: 221/8 * (57.6 ov)

Bangladesh: 324


West Indies recovered from the loss of wickets after lunch as Shimron Hetmyer struck a fiery fifty to take Windies past 150-run mark. The left-hander dealt in boundaries, hitting four sixes and five fours as he took on the Tigers spinners during his 47-ball 63-run knock. Hetmyer and his partner at the other end Shane Dowrich combined well in an attack-defence 92-run sixth-defence stand where the latter negotiated with defence being the primary focus, content on rotating the strike while Hetmyer laid it on the bowlers.

The Tigers however got the wicket of the dangerous Hetmyer before lunch on day 2 as the left-hander nicked a Mehedi Miraz delivery though to the wicket-keeper.

Nayeem Hasan was among the wickets in the second session as the youngster bagged two in quick succession to give the visitors a real problem so early on the second day. While it looked curtains for the West Indies at five down, the sixth-wicket stand kept them alive in the game as the second session once again saw the match sway from Bangladesh to Windies to Bangladesh again.
