For Bangladesh Litton Das scored 25, which unfortunately for the visitor’s was their highest and the only player to get to double-digits. Two of the most experienced batsmen Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim departed without scoring and that meant the innings was going one-way, downhill!
Kemar Roach ripped the Bangladeshi batsmen with his furious pace, he scalped a five-wicket haul. Bangladesh was all out in 18.4 overs.
Bangladesh has played poor cricket off late be it in whites or green and coloured. Bangladesh was whitewashed by Afghanistan in a 3-match T20I series as well.
Bangladesh had received their Test status on 26th June 2000 and they played their debut Test against India, which they lost.
As we speak, West Indies has resumed their first innings and are 53 for no loss in 22 overs.
Bangladesh has been blown away on the first day of the Test, from here it is going to be an uphill task for the visitors.
