KHULNA, Bangladesh  — Bowler Abul Hasan hit an unbeaten century on his debut to propel Bangladesh to 365 for eight at stumps today on the first day of the second cricket Test against West Indies at the Sheikh Abu Naser Divisional Stadium.

Hasan reached 100 off just 108 balls to become only the second player to make a Test century as a No. 10 batsman. He has so far struck 13 fours and three sixes.

The 20-year-old Hasan shared a record ninth-wicket stand of 172 runs with fellow bowler Mahmudullah Riad (72 not out) after the home team looked to be wobbling on 193 for eight, having lost two quick wickets soon after tea.

Fast bowler Fidel Edwards, selected in place of Ravi Rampaul, was the West Indies' most successful bowler, taking five wickets for 81 runs. Nasir Hossain (52) also made a half-century for Bangladesh while captain Darren Sammy supported Edwards with two wickets. (AP/EZS)
