Chanderpaul piles on misery

Dhaka - Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Denesh Ramdin frustrated Bangladesh as they took the West Indies to an imposing score of 437-4 at lunch on the second day of the first Test on Wednesday.

Resuming at 361-4, the pair added 76 runs in the morning session as Bangladesh's attack failed to make a breakthrough on a lifeless pitch at the Shere Bangla stadium.

Chanderpaul was unbeaten on 156 and Ramdin, on 84, was approaching his third Test century as the pair extended their fifth wicket partnership to 206.

Debutant off-spinner Sohag Gazi, who took three wickets on the first day, opened the bowling and kept a tight line and length. He forced an edge off Chanderpaul's bat which fell short of first slip and went for two runs.

The experienced left-hander then hit paceman Shahadat Hossain to the third-man boundary to reach his 150. He has so far hit 19 fours during his 282-ball stay at the crease.

Ramdin, 52 overnight, looked unperturbed in the company of his illustrious partner, helping take the West Indies to a score which will be a daunting prospect for the vulnerable Bangladeshi batting line-up.

Ramdin has hit eight boundaries during his 170-ball knock.
