Windies vs Bangladesh - 1st Test

Series: Bangladesh tour of West Indies, 2018
Venue: Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua
Date: 04-08 July 2018

Bangladesh 144/10 (40.2 Ovs) RR: 3.57 | Windies won by an innings and 219 runs

commentary

So we are done and dusted with the first Test of the series, well before time. And it was a pretty ordinary performance by Bangladesh to be honest. Can they bounce back at Jamaica? For that, they need to make tremendous improvements in all three departments. So do join us for the action of that Test too. For now switch tabs and follow the action of the second T20I between England and India. On behalf of Sagar Chawla, Pradeep Krishnamurthy and Shashikant Singh this is Nikhil Jadhav signing off.

Kemar Roach, Man of the Match: I have played a couple of times against them before and done well. I am confident everytime when I am playing against Bangladesh. Also, playing at home helps. The pitches have helped me a lot. There is a bit of movement and bounce in the pitch. As a fast bowler you got to be licking your lips. A lot of things manifested. Shannon has been fantastic and so have been Holder and Cummins. As a whole bowling unit we have clicked.

Jason Holder, Windies captain: We started the series well, it's good. We should have won against Sri Lanka too, a series to be won. Credit to the bowlers though. Kemar bowled well with the support of others. We enjoyed the pressure. I guess we bowled one no ball in this Test and got a wicket as well. We could have been more clinical in the second innings as well. This has set the tone for the next game. All of our bowlers have got pretty tough work load. Hopefully, we'll try and keep winning. Very important, you know. I was pleased with my performance last week but we couldn't come out on top. We got a win here and it was a collective effort by us. Hopefully we'll do this in Jamaica as well.

Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh captain: It was very tough and we knew it was going to be tough. We have to work on areas in the next five days and pick ourselves. Adapting to these conditions won't be easy as we are not used to it. We need to stay fit and think positive in the coming week. Nurul batted really well today. Abu Jayed was impressive on his debut. The way he showed his character, looks a great prospect for future.

11:47 Local Time, 15:47 GMT, 21:17 IST: Game. Set. Match! A comprehensive victory for Windies as they were clinical in all departments - across the 7 sessions of the Test. The only positive for Bangladesh was the knock by Nurul Hasan. He showed their top-order that run scoring was difficult but not impossible with his counterattacking knock. Barring that, it was Windies all the way. Roach's breathtaking spell in the first innings that was followed by a gritty century by Kraigg Brathwaite. Fifties by Smith and Hope not to be forgotten too. As a result of that, Windies managed to notch up a massive lead of 353. Bangladesh couldn't really recover from that knockout punch in the first innings. Roach didn't take field in the second innings due to a niggle but Shannon Gabriel and Jason Holder worked in tandem to finish things off with the former bagging his career's fifth 5-wicket haul. Clinical Performance. Also, this is Windies' biggest innings win at home.

Miguel Cummins to Nurul Hasan, out Caught&Bowled!! Finally a wicket for Windies. This partnership was trying to frustrate the hosts. A short delivery around off, Nurul slaps it with a horizontal bat but doesn't quite get the timing on it. As the ball spoons back to Cummins, he leaps a touch and grabs it with both his hands. That was a pretty entertaining knock by Nurul though. The only positive for Bangladesh in this Test. Nurul Hasan c and b Miguel Cummins 64(74) [4s-6 6s-2]

Gabriel to Kamrul Islam, no run, oh dear. Nasty blow on the helmet. Banged in short, Kamrul Islam is frozen at the crease. He just stands up to it and lets the ball come crashing onto the grille. He was taken aback, almost fell into the stumps but somehow gathered himself and stayed on his feet. The physio runs up to have a look. It's the jaw they're focussing on. Doesn't look like there's too much damage. But geez, that looked brutal

Gabriel to Nurul Hasan, no run, that's an incredibly touch chance for short leg. The fielder made it into a chance rather with his sharp reflexes.

Holder to Kamrul Islam, no run, has that carried? Wait, what's happening? It's not an umpire review. Windies are using a review themselves. So did the umpire think he didn't hit that? Anyway, after using the zoomer on the replay, the third umpire decides that it hasn't carried to Devon Smith at second slip. Strange. Full outswinger on off, Kamrul gets a thick edge while prodding forward and the ball probably bounced in front of Smith

Holder to Mahmudullah, out Caught by Roston Chase!! Holder strikes with his first legitimate delivery of the day. That lovely shape on the ball again, curling away late from off. Mahmudullah was completely opened up on the back foot in defence. He's turned inside out. The edge dies on the way towards third slip, where Chase takes a superb low catch diving to his right. There we go again with Bangladesh. Mahmudullah c Roston Chase b Holder 15(30) [4s-2]

Holder to Mahmudullah, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Holder to Mahmudullah, wide, wild bumper down leg, shocking start from Holder

There were some showers early morning, but the weather has cleared up nicely. Nowhere to hide for Bangladesh. Holder to start. He was brilliant with his outswingers yesterday, let's see if he finds the same rhythm. Three slips, gully waiting.

Stuart Law: We have been more dominant against Bangladesh than Sri Lanka. Proud of the boys, what they have achieved. I don't think the bowlers did a bad job against Sri Lanka, just that the players didn't score enough runs against them. We could play the extra batsman in place of the spinner in this one. We had planned for a 5-day Test match but it's a little less than that. The players got to be extremely strong, extremely fit. That reflects in their work ethic. We have a big tour of India coming up. Roach along with Gabriel to attack and Jason Holder to steady the ship. The grass doesn't only help pace and bounce but also helps batsmen to play their shots. We decided not to bowl Roach yesterday, because he could be out for 8 to 10 weeks if he had done more damage. It's just a niggle at the moment.

Day 3, 9.30am local: The knockout punch was landed yesterday itself, we're just here for the last rites. Anyway, hello everyone, welcome to our live coverage. Bangladesh have been shocking with the bat in this Test match, raising serious questions about their skill-sets away from home. This Test is done for them, but what about the next one? How will they recover and compete? Plenty of question marks. As for Windies, there's just one question mark. How long will they take to wrap up the remaining four wickets? Going by yesterday's evening session, I'd say the ballpark is around a jiffy. Gabriel intimidated the best of what Bangladesh have to offer, so their lower-order can't be that keen.

******************

17:29 Local Time, 21:29 GMT, 02:59 IST: Disaster all over again for Bangladesh with the bat. They continue to be embarrassingly poor against quality seam bowling, in conditions which have some juice. There was an expectation that they might show a little more stomach for a fight, after getting smashed in the first innings. But that wasn't to be. Roach's unavailability due to a hamstring strain made little difference. Gabriel simply took over from him to play the role of the tormentor. Holder was cunningly brilliant as the sidekick, floating those teasing outswingers and benefitting from Gabriel's fear at the other end. Bangladesh simply didn't have the skills to deal with the pair of them. They looked like fish out of water, even the most experienced of them. Doesn't look good for the rest of the series. We'll be back tomorrow to inspect the wreckage. Goodbye for now!

Miguel Cummins to Mahmudullah, no ball, caught at point, but it's a no-ball. Length ball just outside off, Mahmudullah slices it on the up and this was a brilliant diving take from substitute Keemo Paul. But the no-ball check was referred upstairs and Cummins was guilty of overstepping

Holder to Nurul Hasan, 1 run, so much indecision from Nurul Hasan. Even as he was pulling the short ball - he had thoughts of pulling out from it. It takes a thick top-edge and balloons over Dowrich's left shoulder to drop behind him

Holder to Mehidy Hasan, out Caught by Dowrich!! The sixth one goes down for Bangladesh. Short of length, that lovely shape from Holder again - curling away from the right hander. Mehidy pokes away from the body and it brushes his gloves on the way to Dowrich. What shambles. Mehidy Hasan c Dowrich b Holder 2(10)

Holder to Mehidy Hasan, no run, oh my, unplayable from Holder. Forget Mehidy Hasan, not many would've had an answer to that. For all money it looked the ball was headed for off-stump, Mehidy had that line covered, but it swirled away so late and so viciously, nothing he could do about it other than pray that is misses the outside edge. His prayers are answered

Gabriel to Shakib, out Caught by Holder!! Shakib nicks off. Four for Gabriel, who is filling in for the unavailable Roach as Bangladesh's tormentor. Hitting the deck hard, back of a length, straightens from round the wicket and squares Shakib up. Holder - at third slip - dives in front of second slip for a superb low catch. Hardly any celebrations from the Windies. This is normal business. Shakib c Holder b Gabriel 12(18) [4s-2]

Gabriel to Rahim, out Bowled!! Right through the gate, rattles middle and off. Rahim was fearful of the short ball, his front foot went nowhere and thus a big gap was created between bat and pad as he pushed at this length ball. Gabriel nips the ball back in to exploit that gap, humbles the Bangladesh veteran. Rahim b Gabriel 8(11) [4s-2]

Gabriel to Shakib, FOUR, you just get this feeling Shakib has come out with the idea of staying very positive. Short of length delivery, not much width as the ball is angled in from round the wicket, but Shakib still goes slashing.

Holder to Liton Das, out Caught by Brathwaite!! There's the edge Holder was after. Beautiful shape on his outswingers, every one of them. This one's a length ball whose initial line is close to off, teases Liton forward in defence before curving away late and taking the outside edge into the lap of first slip. Bangladesh not looking much better in their second attempt either. Liton Das c Brathwaite b Holder 2(17)

Gabriel to Tamim, out Caught by Shai Hope!! Is that taken cleanly? There was no reaction, no celebration from Gabriel or any of the other West Indies players, but it looks like Hope has indeed grabbed this at gully. The change of angle paying off for him. Length ball angled across off, gets Tamim pushing away at it, thereby finding the outside edge. The ball was dying on Hope, who dives forward with two hands for an excellent catch. Tamim c Shai Hope b Gabriel 13(15) [4s-2]
