Bangladesh resumed batting in the second day of the Dhaka Test against Windies in Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on Saturday.

The unbeaten-duo at the end of the first day’s game, Shakib Al Hasan (55*) and Mahmudullah (31*) started the second day for Bangladesh.

On the first day, Tigers have posted 259 runs on the board for five wickets. Shadman Islam, the left-handed debutant opener, hit a fifty and Shakib also did the same while batting on at number five. 

The hosts won the first Test in Chattogram by a big margin of 64 runs. So they are looking at nothing but a series sweep. Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh captain, expressed his desire to win the series at the pre-match press conference on Thursday.

The West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite also said they will take the field keeping a win in mind.

Brief score at the end of day 1:
