West Indies have stretched their lead to 211 before lunch on day four despite losing three wickets in the morning session.

The visitors added 57 runs for the loss of 3 wickets before lunch today, with Abu Jayed taking two and Taijul taking the rest. End of over 48, the West Indies were 98/6. Nkrumah Bonner (30) Joshua Da Silva (20) are in the batting.

Bangladesh are not letting this one go easily. They've had one humiliation in the first Test, and they're not having another one. Not their spinners. Not in their fortress.

They will be looking to break this partnership as soon as possible after lunch - they've survived for quite a white, but they have looked like getting out. It's getting spicy here in Dhaka.

Earlier, West Indies resumed day-4 batting with their overnight score 41-3 in the second innings for a lead of 154 runs with seven wickets remaining. They gained a 113-run lead in the first innings after bowling out Bangladesh for 296 but Bangladesh spinners denied them from taking full control on day three, by bowling with a tight line and length.

West Indies were bowled out for 409 runs in their first innings.
