Hosts in disarray against Windies A

Hosts in disarray against windies a0

As the second day of the third four-day game between Bangladesh A and West Indies A came to a conclusion in Sylhet, the hosts were in a state of chaos as they had fallen to 157 for seven at the end of the day. This score was in response to the visitors’ first-innings total of 445.

Batters like Mominul Haque, Yasir Ali, and Nurul Hasan Sohan were unable to make their presence known, which was an alarming indicator leading up to the one-off test match that will be played against Afghanistan the following month.

The bowlers for the home team did not have a particularly successful day either, as the wicket offered them very little assistance. In spite of the fact that there was no turn available, Nasum Ahmed had a five-wicket haul, and pacers Mushfik Hasan and Shoriful Islam each took two wickets.

Openers Mahmudul Hasan Joy and Zakir Hasan navigated eight overs following the exchange before the former was caught behind after hitting nine runs off of 27 balls.

The downward trend started at that point. Mominul walked off the field having scored five runs prior to Zakir being run out for 29. Saif Hassan’s innings lasted for 68 deliveries while Sohan was responsible for 28. Saif Hassan’s total was the most on the squad.

The A side is now facing down the barrel of a loss, as they are still 228 runs down in the game. It required some rear-guard activity from pacer Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Nasum, who remained undefeated on 17 and seven respectively, to get through to the finish of play.

“Our batting has not been very good at all. The playing surface is favorable but did not provide much assistance to the bowlers due to the lack of seam movement available. The selector Habibul Bashar told yesterday’s edition of The Daily Star that “we just didn’t bat well.”
