Windies took another step towards clinching the series 2-0 after dominating the second day with the ball. Despite losing their way with the ball by getting shot out for 354 after resuming from 295/4, Windies put a lot of pressure with the ball against the Bangladesh batsmen who were already short on confidence. Shannon Gabriel started off with a couple of wickets before Jason Holder took charge.
Bangladesh lost wickets in clusters with only Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan to an extent offering some fight. In the end, Windies claimed a lead of 205 in the first innings but opted against enforcing the follow on with both Holder and Gabriel not at 100%. With the surface also aiding turn, the move made sense. Bangladesh would be happy with the fact that they got rid of Kraigg Brathwaite before stumps but in order to stay afloat, they need to pick up quick wickets this morning.
