M Hasan to Hetmyer, OUT! Hetmyer holes out! Once again tries to go downtown and clear the fence but this time he mistimes his shot in the air. Fails to get underneath the ball and it skies up in the air at long off. Mithun makes no mistake in the deep and Mehidy is ecstatic. Points at his skipper, maybe telling him that's why he wanted a fielder there in the deep. Hetmyer departs, 7 runs short of his maiden Test hundred. He should be disappointed but it was an entertaining knock to say the least.
45.1
6
M Hasan to Hetmyer, SIX! Biggie number 9 for Shimron Hetmyer! A flighted full ball around off, Hetmyer makes room, uses his feet and dispatches it over the bowler's head.

42.5
0
Hasan to Roach, Missing leg, it is. A big off spinner. Landing outside off and curling back in, Roach decides to play it from the back foot but misses. He is rapped on the pads and they put in an unsuccessful appeal. Shakib goes for the DRS after consulting his players. The replays roll in and they show it to be easily going down. The hosts have no reviews left now.

Shout for an lbw! Not given. Bangladesh take the DRS. Looks like missing leg. Let's see...

M Hasan to D Bishoo, OUT! Great reflex catch at first slip and Mehidy gets his 10-wicket haul in the match. This is the second time he has achieved this feat in Tests. Wow. Hasan dishes out a short delivery outside off and seeing that Bishoo goes on the back foot to play the square cut. But it takes the outside edge of his bat and Sarkar hangs on to a sharp catch over his head. In the first innings also, Bishoo tried to cut and was caught brilliantly at silly point. So two great catches to dismiss Bishoo twice in a day.

6

35.3
6
Al Hasan to Hetmyer, SIX! Make that seven! Another slog. Tossed up ball on middle and leg, he slogs it over mid-wicket. This time he doesn't get it well enough but such is the power on those shoulders that it goes well over the ropes.

33.1
6
Al Hasan to Hetmyer, SIX! Hetmyer will keep playing his natural game. Floated full ball around middle and off, Shimron jumps out of the crease and hoists it over long on for a maximum.

32.2
0
N Hasan to Dowrich, OUT! Big blow to Windies. Dowrich is caught at first slip. Naeem serves a flighted delivery around off from 'round the wicket, Shane tries to flick it across the line with the spin but it doesn't spin back in much and takes the outside edge on its way to Soumya Sarkar. A good low catch by him. Into the tail now, Bangladesh.
32.1
1
N Hasan to Hetmyer, This one is a little short around off, Hetmyer rocks back and punches it to sweeper cover for a run. Brings up his 4th Test fifty. He has at least offered a fight here.

31.1

M Hasan to Dowrich, Turning down the leg side, Dowrich tries to flick but misses.

Shane Dowrich walks in next. He looked the most assured batsman for Windies in the first innings. A bit strange that he didn't get the promotion in the batting order. Anyway, now it's up to him and Hetmyer yet again. The same pair that started the day's play.

27.4
0
M Hasan to Hope, OUT! Goodness gracious me. Shai Hope did all the hard work and has now thrown his wicket away. Mehidy drops it short around off, Hope gets back inside the crease with the pull shot and doesn't bother to keep it down. Maybe, he just wanted to play it wide of the short mid-wicket fielder. He did that successfully but there is a mid-wicket fielder present too. Shakib moves across to his left and grabs the catch with ease. The partnership which was blossoming is nipped in the bud. Mehidy is up and running in celebration. His 9th wicket in the match now.

Will this be the last session of the match? I won't be surprised. Heads I win, tails you lose. The players walk out to the middle. Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer have work to do. Bangladesh will continue their spin therapy with Taijul Islam.

... Day 3, Session 2 ...

Action-packed morning session! It's Bangladesh, Bangladesh and only Bangladesh. 9 wickets in total fell. Mehidy Hasan was the star and the other spinners also played good supporting roles. Windies didn't put up much fight in the first innings and lost their remaining five wickets in a jiffy. After that, following-on, the script didn't change much. The only thing consistent with Windies at the moment is being consistently poor with the bat. Playing across the line, premeditating a shot, getting caught inside the crease and loosely driving away from the body - this is what happened in the second essay of their batting. Already four down and let's see whether they can survive the next session or not. Do join us in a short while.

Taijul Islam to R Chase, OUT! Chase doesn't want to fight either. He's considered to be the best batsman against spinners in this Windies line-up. Disappointing. A tossed up delivery outside off, full in length and turning away. Chase with a sorry footwork goes for a drive and hits it aerially to covers. Mominul takes a good low catch. His front foot never came forward to the pitch of the delivery. Four down already, this is the repeat telecast of last evening.

T Islam to Ambris, OUT! Ambris is a sitting duck there. Taijul needed just two balls to strike. He dishes out a well-disguised arm ball. Lands it around off and it skids off the surface. Ambris decides to stay inside the crease and play it across the line. But it stays low and strikes him low on the pads. They appeal and the umpire is in agreement. Ambris takes the help of the technology but nothing can be done there. You cannot be more plumb than this. No inside edge either to save you. Wicket number 3 goes down.

Appeal for an lbw! Up goes the finger. Sunil Ambris wants to review the decision. That looked dead to the naked eye. Only an inside edge can save him...

M Hasan to Powell, OUT! Stumped! This is inexplicable. Powell decided very early that he will use his feet. Maybe, the last ball was playing in his mind. Maybe, he didn't want to get caught napping inside the crease and get out either bowled or lbw. So, what does he do? He dances down the track even before the bowler has released the ball. All too easy for Mehidy. He bowls it wide outside off, Powell is already down the track and has no other option but to try and play at it. The ball however spins away sharply to beat his bat. An easy stumping for Rahim. Kieran will have to give a lot of explanation for this shot selection. If I remember properly, he was stumped almost in an exact manner in the second innings of the first Test match. Not sure what they lack more, skill or temperament...

Al Hasan to Brathwaite, OUT! Oh dear! Shakib gets his counterpart once again. What is even happening? Fuller arm ball on off, skids inside. Kraigg shuffles across and looks to flick it away. Misses it completely and gets caught in front on his back leg. Shakib appeals and the umpire raises his finger. Brathwaite doesn't even bother reviewing it as he knows he is plumb. Now then, the replays later on show us that there might have been a faint inside edge before the ball hit the pads. How did Kraigg not know? The bat was too close to the ground. He perhaps thought it must have hit the turf.
