WI struggle to safety
Left-arm spinner Elias Sunny claimed four wickets on his debut but could not stop West Indies from moving towards safety in the rain-hit first test against Bangladesh in Chittagong earlier today.
West Indies reached 144-5 at the close on the fourth day in reply to Bangladesh’s 350-9 declared in their first innings after rain and a damp outfield caused a cancellation of more than two days of play.
Shivnarine Chanderpaul fell one run short of a half century after adding 62 with Kraigg Brathwaite (33).
Chanderpaul had survived two close appeals and was almost caught at forward short leg by Imrul Kayes off Sunny on 26, before he fell to the same bowler when he was caught in the slips by Shahriar Nafees.
