- Teenage Bangladesh off-spinner Nayeem
Hasan became the youngest ever player to take five wickets
on debut but West Indies' spinners matched him to restore parity in the first
Test in Chittagong on Friday.
Nayeem, who was 17 years 355 days
old at the start of the game, finished with 5-61, as Bangladesh bowled out the
West Indies for 246 to take a 78-run first innings lead.
But the hosts were unable to cash
in on the advantage, slumping to 55 for five in their second innings at stumps
on the second day for a lead of just 133 runs.
Jomel Warrican and Roston Chase
each took two wickets to help the West Indies claw their way back into the
Mushfiqur Rahim remained unbeaten
on 11 alongside Mehidy Hasan, on what looked like a batting minefield at the
Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.
Nayeem, who surpassed Australian
Pat Cummins's five-wicket haul on debut at 18 years and 193 days, took care of
the West Indies lower middle-order after senior spinners provided the initial
Skipper Shakib Al Hasan, who
finished with 3-43, dismissed Shai Hope and Kraigg Brathwaite at the start of
his spell after Taijul Islam removed Kieran Powell for 14 to help the hosts
reduce West Indies to 31-3.
Roston Chase and Sunil Ambris
tried to rebuild the innings but Nayeem soon struck, removing both batsmen in
successive overs for 31 and 19 runs respectively.
Shimron Hetmyer then launched a
counter-attack to score 63 off 47 balls with five fours and four sixes for a
brief respite from the spin onslaught.
Hetmyer shared 92 runs with Shane
Dowrich to lift West Indies from a precarious 88-5 but the side collapsed again
once Mehidy broke the stand.
Nayeem then dismissed Devendra
Bishoo, Kemar Roach and Warrican to complete his five-for before Sakib removed
Shannon Gabriel to wrap up the West Indies innings.
Dowrich held one end firm to stay
unbeaten on 63, his third Test fifty which came off 101 balls with the help of
two fours and three sixes.
Earlier in the day, Bangladesh
were bowled out quickly for 324 in their first innings after resuming on their
overnight score of 315-8.
Left-arm spinner Warrican took
the remaining two Bangladeshi wickets as the hosts added just nine runs.
Bangladesh owed their
first-innings score to Mominul Haque, who struck 120 off 167 balls while Imrul
Kayes and Shakib made 44 and 34 respectively.
(Mominul Haque 120, Kayes 44, Gabriel 4/70, Warrican 4/62) and 55/5
Indies 246 (Dowrich 63*, Hetmyer 63, Nayeem Hasan 5/61)
Bangladesh lead by 133 runs with
5 second-innings wickets remaining
