Roston Chase says West Indies must go back to the drawing board if they are to stay in the ODI series with Bangladesh after a comprehensive defeat in the opening game on Sunday.

Another match, another poor performance from the Windies who lost the first of their three ODI’s against Bangladesh by five wickets at Dhaka on Sunday.

The Windies lost to a Bangladesh Cricket Board XI by 51 runs courtesy of the Duckworth/Lewis method at the Savar Cricket Ground on on Thursday.

The Windies, choosing to bat first, amassed a good-looking 331-8 from their 50 overs, with Shai Hope, Kieran Powell, Roston Chase, and Fabian Allen getting among the runs, but were blown out of the water, as the board XI raced to 314-6 off just 41 overs.

Powell started steadily, scoring 43 as he was partnered for the first time in the opening slot by Hope. Hope was even more certain in his strokeplay and scored 81 from 84 deliveries, while the returning Darren Bravo, batting at three, scored 24 from 33 deliveries.

Batting has continued to prove a struggle for veteran batsman Marlon Samuels, who, coming in at four, could only manage five.

Shimron Hetmyer, as has come to be expected, added some impetus to the innings, smashing 33 from just 26 deliveries before he was out caught by Soumya Sarkar off the bowling of Rubel Hossain.

Skipper Rovman Powell did not have a good outing in his first attempt at captaining a Windies side, the allrounder going for nought. However, the lower-order batting of Allen, 48 from just 32 deliveries, and Chase, 65 from 51, gave the Windies what should have been a very defendable total.

That was until centuries from Tamim Iqbal, 107, and Sarkar, 103 not out, took the game away from the Windies in no uncertain terms.

Iqbal smashed his 107 from just 73 deliveries and after Imrul Kayes, his opening partner got out for 27 from 25, Sarkar proved just as savage, his unbeaten ton, coming from just 83 balls.

Sarkar had begun to lose partners toward the end of the innings, with Mohammad Mithun, 5, Ariful Haque, 21, Towhid Hridoy, 0, and Shamim Patwari, nine, all fell victim before skipper Mashrafe Mortaza, scored an unbeaten 22 from 18 balls.

Pacer Kemar Roach came in for a fair amount of stick, ending with figures of 0-49 from just five overs, while Oshane Thomas, had 1-57 from seven overs. Chase was the best of the bowlers, grabbing 2-57 from 10 overs, while Devendra Bishoo, who also had two wickets, leaked 81 runs from his 10 overs.

Allen was also good, bowling five overs for a wicket that cost just 19 runs.

The Windies are preparing for their first ODI against Bangladesh after being swept 2-0 in a Test series last week. There will be three ODIs, two in Dhaka, and one in Sylhet. Three T20Is are also to follow.

Rovman Powell will captain the Windies side for their three-match ODI series against Bangladesh on December 9, 11, and 14.

Kraigg Brathwaite bemoaned another West Indies batting collapse after his side were thrashed by an innings and 184 runs by Bangladesh in Dhaka.

After losing the first Test by 64 runs, the Windies failed to salvage a draw from the two-match series as they were thoroughly beaten inside three days.

Having allowed Bangladesh to amass 508 in the first innings, the tourists were then skittled out for 111 and managed to add another 213 after following-on.

Shimron Hetmyer again showed his quality with a defiant 93, but Brathwaite's side crumbled against the spin of Mehidy Hasan and Shakib Al Hasan.

"It was very disappointing," said Brathwaite. "Our bowlers did a good job but the batting let us down.

"Some of the shots weren't the best. Most of the games we were 30-odd for three. It put the batting order under a lot of pressure. 

"It wasn't good for us at all. I can't blame the wicket. Some of the shot selection wasn't good at all, especially [Saturday] evening.

"Test cricket is a mental game. Five-hundred on the board with the ball spinning on the first day. We could have had some talks.

"Mentally we probably weren't there, especially [Saturday]when we lost five wickets quickly. We have to do better as batsmen, even myself. We can't consistently be 30 for three. We have to hold up our hand and do the job. Simple."

Brathwaite endured a miserable series at the top of the order – averaging just 5.50 from four innings – and he acknowledged he must improve to give his side firmer foundations to build upon.

"I am very disappointed," he added. "I didn't have a good series in India, so I was looking to lead the batting. 

"But it didn't happen. I have to keep strong and try to lead the batting in the next series [against England in July]."

Shakib Al Hasan praised Bangladesh for bouncing back from their series whitewash against West Indies in July to return the favour in Dhaka.

The Tigers claimed their biggest Test win and first by an innings on Sunday as Mehidy Hasan's 12 wickets secured a 2-0 triumph.

In their defeat in the West Indies four months ago, Bangladesh were bowled out for 43 – the lowest Test total since 1974.

It was an 11th Test series without victory for Bangladesh, a run that was extended against Zimbabwe prior to West Indies' arrival on the subcontinent.

That run is now over, though, after Shakib's men dominated the series with bat and ball, no more so than in Dhaka where they raced to victory by an innings and 184 runs inside three days.

"We obviously had a lot to prove after losing to them in that manner [in July]," he said. "I think we have done that at least at home.

"I would thank my team-mates and the coaching staff, for believing that it was possible. I was quite demanding of my players in this series. I wanted a lot from them. I think everyone contributed in their own way, but I saw everyone really wanting to contribute to the win.

"This is the first time we enforced the follow-on in more than 100 Tests in 18 years, which is definitely something special. We haven't done this against smaller teams, so to do it against a higher-ranked side is an achievement."

He added: "We never expected such a performance in the West Indies. We held discussions after the Test series defeat there, and then came back strongly in the ODIs and T20Is.

"Since we didn't do well in the Tests [there], we had this opportunity to do well at home. We wanted people to at least understand that it was a performance in their home conditions, and see that we could do the same in our home conditions.

"Our batsmen have done well on good wickets. In this game, they believed in the plan put in front of them. We no longer prepare flat wickets on which we are expected to score 500 and draw the game. We try to win every game, and this changed mindset has taken us to a better place as cricketers."

Attention now turns to the limited-overs matches between the two sides – three ODIs and three T20Is – with Bangladesh restoring Shakib to the squad after he missed their most-recent 50-over series with Zimbabwe due to a finger injury.

Tamim Iqbal is also back after struggling with a fractured wrist and side strain in recent months.

 

Bangladesh squad: Mashrafe Mortaza (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Nazmul Islam, Mohammad Mithun, Mohammad Saifuddin, Abu Hider, Ariful Haque.

Bangladesh wrapped up a Test series whitewash on day three in Dhaka as West Indies failed with the bat once again, the Tigers sealing victory by an innings and 184 runs.

Mehidy Hasan profited from a turning track to claim 12-117 in the match, the Windies losing 15 wickets on Sunday as they were bowled out for 111 and 213.

After the abysmal display 24 hours earlier when the tourists were reduced to 75-5, little changed as Mehidy spun through the tail with ease.

Having enforced the follow-on, the off-spinner continued on his merry way to nine wickets in the day, the Windies toiling at 96-6.

At that point, Shimron Hetmyer launched into a defiant 93 off 92 deliveries, the left-hander launching nine maximums in a blistering display.

Mehidy ended his innings seven short of a maiden century before Bangladesh completed their biggest Test victory and first by an innings.

Hetmyer's first innings was ended at 39 early on day three as he drilled a delivery straight back to Mehidy, and nine overs later the Windies were done.

Unsurprisingly it was Mehidy who was their tormentor in-chief as he accounted for Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach and Shane Dowrich in quick succession.

That saw Mehidy finish the first innings with figures of 7-58, while Shakib Al Hasan (3-27) claimed the final wicket of Shermon Lewis to dismiss the Windies for a meagre 111.

If Stuart Law had hoped for more resilience in the final innings of his tenure as head coach he was very much mistaken. The Windies' top order crumbled for the second day in a row, bamboozled by spin.

Captain Kraigg Brathwaite's miserable series ended with him being trapped lbw for one by Shakib in the first over of their second innings, the opener finishing the series with just 22 runs to his name.

It got no better as Mehidy and Taijul Islam quickly reduced their visitors to 29-4 in the 13th over.

Hetmyer and Shai Hope offered some resistance with an innings-high partnership of 56 for the fifth wicket.

The sensational striking of Hetmyer continued his fine series but getting West Indies out of trouble was always going to be too much of an ask.

Roach and Lewis plundered some late runs to delay the Bangladesh celebrations as the tailed showed the batsman how it should be done, before Mehidy and Taijul wrapped things up.

West Indies equalled an unwanted record dating back 139 years as their top five batsmen were all bowled on day two of the second Test against Bangladesh.

It is only the third such instance in the history of Test cricket, after great Ashes rivals Australia and England inflicted the ignominy upon each other way back in 1879 and 1890.

Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Sunil Ambris, Roston Chase and Shai Hope were all cleaned up by Mehidy Hasan and Shakib Al Hasan as the Windies capitulated to 29-5 in response to Bangladesh's mammoth 508.

Shimron Hetmyer and Shane Dowrich steadied the rapidly sinking ship, guiding the tourists to 75-5 at stumps, after Mahmudullah's superb 138 had put the Tigers firmly in control.

Here's a run-down of how the Windies' miserable reply unfolded:

 

Brathwaite b Shakib 0 (0.6ovs, 0-1)

After almost two days in the field, the visiting captain lasted just six deliveries, bowled through the gate attempting a drive.

Powell b Mehidy 4 (5.3ovs, 6-2)

Brathwaite's opening partner fared little better, playing for turn only to be done by a slider that sneaked through the gap between bat and pad to take middle.

Ambris b Shakib 7 (8.6ovs, 17-3)

The most senseless of the five dismissals. Ambris charged down the pitch and was deceived by a shorter length as the ball passed him by and crashed into the stumps.

Chase b Mehidy 0 (9.3ovs, 20-4)

Like Powell, Chase played for turn, but in keeping his bat inside the line only saw the ball nip past the outside edge and flatten off stump as he departed for a golden duck.

Hope b Mehidy 10 (11.6ovs, 29-5)

Perhaps the only one of the quintet to count himself unfortunate, as Hope could do little about a grubber that barely bounced before taking the off peg.

All of West Indies' top five batsmen were bowled as they finished day two of the second Test with Bangladesh in tatters, a mammoth 433 behind their opponents' first-innings total of 508.

The home side almost doubled their overnight score of 259-5 in Dhaka on Saturday, thanks largely to 136 from Mahmudullah and excellent contributions from Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das.

And West Indies are staring down the barrel of a 2-0 defeat in the two-match series after crumbling to 75-5 in the final session as Shakib (2-15) and Mehidy Hasan (3-36) ripped through the top order.

Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Sunil Ambris, Roston Chase and Shai Hope were all comprehensively bowled - the first time the top five have all been dismissed in such a manner in a Test innings since 1890.

A day that ended in shambolic fashion might perhaps have unfolded entirely more positively for the tourists had Mahmudullah not been given the benefit of the doubt on 32 when replays of a low catch to second slip off Kemar Roach proved inconclusive.

Shakib, who resumed on 55, struck three successive fours off Chase in the following over and advanced his score to 80 before edging Roach to gully.

His replacement Das picked up the baton, reaching fifty with a drilled four through the covers off Chase before he was bowled by Brathwaite when attempting a reverse sweep on 54, ending a stand of 92.

Jomel Warrican had Mehidy (18) caught behind before Mahmudullah cut Chase to the boundary to bring up his third Test hundred. Taijul Islam (26) also departed to an edge behind off Brathwaite and, three balls after being dropped by Hope, Mahmudullah was finally bowled by Warrican to end the innings.

After the best part of two days in the field, the Windies batsmen looked weary as Brathwaite fell to Shakib at the end of the first over for a duck.

Powell (4) followed in similar circumstances five overs later to Mehidy, who also cleaned up Chase (0) and Hope (10) after Shakib had benefited from Ambris' (7) senseless charge down the track, summing up the Windies' day in a nutshell.

 

Debutant Shadman Islam and Shakib Al Hasan made half-centuries as Bangladesh edged day one of the second Test against the West Indies.

Shadman grafted his way to 199-ball 76, before captain Shakib was unbeaten on 55 as part of 69-run stand with Mahmudullah (31no) in a gritty showing after tea.

On a pitch in Dhaka showing plenty of turn, which will be music to the ears of Bangladesh's spinners, the Windies bowled just 27 overs of pace.

Devendra Bishoo (2-69) took the crucial wicket of Shadman, while Roston Chase (1-61), Kemar Roach (1-38) and Shermon Lewis (1-35) all took a wicket as Bangladesh – eyeing a 2-0 series win having won the first Test – closed on 259-5 in a match that is nicely poised.

After Shadman and Soumya Sarkar had batted out the first hour, Mominul Haque came to the crease after the latter was caught at slip.

He made a promising start but was unable to get to lunch as he woefully pulled a Roach delivery – the penultimate of the session - to mid-on.

Mohammad Mithun (29) put on 64 runs for the third wicket with Shadman, until Bishoo – for the third time this series – accounted for the former.

Shadman had earlier brought up his fifty with a four off Jomel Warrican and pulled another boundary off Bishoo before he was trapped lbw from the next ball.

Only one further wicket fell in a testing evening session when Lewis bowled Mushfiqur Rahim (14), as Shakib patiently played his way to 55 off 113 hitting just one boundary in the process.

Bangladesh coach Steve Rhodes hit back at criticism regarding the nature of the pitch in the team’s 64-run win over the Windies in the first Test at Chittagong.

The regional team seemed to struggle to come to grips with conditions that heavily favoured spin.    In fact, Bangladesh spinners took all 20 West Indies wickets to fall in the game that ended Sunday with big victory for the home side.

Rhodes, however, suggested that the Windies should have expected to face that type of hostile spin track in the Asian region.

"I think that's the beauty of playing all around the world," Rhodes said of the Chittagong track.

"There's lots of different ways to play this wonderful game and coming to Bangladesh and playing on spinning wickets it made for some intriguing cricket," the Englishman added.

"I think in the subcontinent, in places like Pakistan, in Sri Lanka, in India, in Bangladesh you have come to expect turning wickets. So, it's no surprise.”

Rhodes pointed to the fact that Bangladesh have faced a similar scenario during their tour of the West Indies.

"I'll take you back to the Antigua Test match where we played on very alien conditions, green, bouncy, a swinging ball," he said.

The second Test against West Indies starts in Dhaka on November 30.

Windies skipper against Bangladesh in Chattogram, Kraigg Brathwaite, has placed the blame for the team’s first-Test loss to Bangladesh squarely on poor batting.

The visitors from the Caribbean were bowled out for 139 in their second innings after chasing a target of just 204, despite a valliant ninth-wicket stand between Sunil Ambris, 43, and Jomel Warrican, 41.

The two scored 63 runs but were still well short of the total.

“The key is partnerships, whether the top or middle order. We didn’t get partnerships early, so it cost us,” said Brathwaite.

For things to change in the second Test, Brathwaite explained that getting started was key for the visitors.

“The batters have to start better. We have to get bigger totals. I think they got 40 runs too many in the first innings. If we could have limited their first innings score, it could have been better,” said Brathwaite.

The skipper was referring to the 324 Bangladesh posted after they recovered from 235-7.

Despite scoring too many in that first innings, the Windies should have been able to get close or score more heavily than the hosts but found only Shimron Hetmyer, 63, and Shane Dowrich, 63 as well, willing to spend any time at the crease.

After routing the Bangladeshis for 125 in the second innings, Brathwaite would have expected more from his unit.

“We didn’t play ourselves as well as we should or could. We didn’t put up any good partnership. We lost wickets too quickly. The ball was doing a lot more in the pitch,” he said.

Taijul Islam tore through West Indies and Shakib Al Hasan made history as Bangladesh sealed a 64-run victory on day three of the first Test in Chittagong.

The Windies were set 204 for victory after bowling the Tigers out for just 125 on a pitch offering sharp turn, but they were 11-4 at lunch and folded to 139 all out.

Taijul did much of the damage, taking 6-33, and Shakib became the fastest to 3000 Test runs and 200 wickets in his 54th match in the longest format - beating Ian Botham's record - as Bangladesh claimed a first home win over West Indies.

Sunil Ambris (43) and Jomel Warrican (41) spared Kraigg Brathwaite's side total humiliation, but they will have to go back to the drawing board after going 1-0 down in the two-match series.

Bangladesh resumed with a lead of 133 but in trouble on 55-5 and Shannon Gabriel - banned for the second Test after a clash with Imrul Kayes on day one - got an early breakthrough by cleaning up Mushfiqur Rahim.

Mehidy Hasan and Mahmudullah (31) guided the Tigers over the 100 mark, but Devendra Bishoo (4-26) took three quick wickets before Roston Chase (3-18) dismissed Taijul to end the innings.

The Windies had 5.5 overs to see out before lunch, but they were teetering at the break after Shakib (2-30) and Taijul took two wickets apiece in a dramatic passage of play.

Kieran Powell gifted Shakib his 200th scalp when he was stumped attempting a slog down the track and the all-rounder struck again by snaring Shai Hope caught behind.

Taijul removed captain Brathwaite with his first ball and also dismissed Chase lbw in the same over to put West Indies deeper in the mire at lunch.

Shimron Hetmyer again went on the attack, just as he did in the first innings, and made a brisk 27 before holing out to Mehidy (2-27), then Taijul saw the back of Shane Dowrich and Bishoo as the Tigers closed in on victory.

The Windies were 75-8 after Bangladesh successfully reviewed when Taijul rapped Kemar Roach in front but the pacemen was given not out.

Warrican finally provided some support for Ambris in a ninth-wicket stand of 63, but Shakib took a sharp catch at midwicket to get rid of the spinner and Taijul's sixth wicket ended a fast-moving Test.

West Indies fast bowler Shannon Gabriel has been banned for the second Test against Bangladesh following a clash with Imrul Kayes in Chittagong on Thursday.

Nayeem Hasan became the youngest Test debutant to claim a five-wicket haul but West Indies hit back with the ball after Bangladesh secured a first-innings lead on an eventful day two in Chittagong.

Spinner Nayeem turns 18 next week and the celebrations started early as he took 5-61 on Friday, the Windies only making 246 all out in reply to 324 despite half-centuries from Shane Dowrich and Shimron Hetmyer.

Jomel Warrican (2-22) and Roston Chase (2-16) then took two wickets apiece in tough batting conditions to reduce the Tigers to 55-5, leading by 133 after 17 wickets tumbled on the second day of the first Test.

Shannon Gabriel was not used by Kraigg Brathwaite and the tourists will have to do without him in the second Test after the paceman was suspended for one match for making inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with Bangladesh batsman Imrul Kayes on day one.

Warrican wrapped up Bangladesh's first innings in quick time, finishing with figures of 4-62 after Nayeem edged to Shai Hope at first slip and Mustafizur Rahman was trapped leg before three balls later. 

Shakib Al Hasan produced a peach of a delivery to bowl Hope and removed Brathwaite in the same over, reducing West Indies to 31-3 after Taijul Islam – who finished unbeaten on 39 – got rid of Kieran Powell.

Chase made a brisk 31 before becoming Nayeem's first victim and the teenager struck again in his next over, Sunil Ambris trudging off after being given out leg before following a review.

Hetmyer (62) went into one-day mode in a stand of 92 with Dowrich, smashing four sixes in a swashbuckling 47-ball knock before falling caught behind to the excellent Nayeem.

Dowrich also went on the attack, coming down the track to strike Mehidy Hasan for two sixes, but was left stranded on 63 after Nayeem removed Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach and Warrican in quick succession.

The Windies needed quick wickets with a first-innings deficit of 78 and they hit back brilliantly in the final session to leave the match intriguingly poised.

It was the spinners doing the damage, Warrican cleaning up Kayes and seeing the back of Shakib after Chase dismissed Soumya Sarkar and first-innings centurion Mominul Haque before Bishoo bowled Mohammad Mithun.
