West Indies apply the pressure in 2nd test as Roach claims 5-for

1:22 am, Mon September 15, 2014

Kemar Roach's 5-for backed up the hard work of the West Indies batsmen, as the home team applied the pressure with the ball at the end of day-2 of the second and final test against Bangladesh at Beausejour Ground in Gros Islet, St. Lucia on Sunday.

The Windies who lead the short series 1-0, resumed on Sunday's second day on 246-3 and went on to score 380 all out, thanks to half centuries from openers Kraigg Brathwaite 63, debutante Leon Johnson 66 - the pair had put on 143 for the first wicket on the opening day, Shivnarine Chanderpaul 84 not out, while Darren Bravo made 46 and tailenders Jerome Taylor 40 showing a welcome return to form with the bat - Taylor has a test century against New Zealand - and Sulieman Benn 25.

Al-Amin Hossain took 3-80, Shafiul Islam 2-80, while Robiul Islam took 2-63 and Taijul Islam 2-89.

Then the West Indies fast bowling pair of Jerome Taylor 2-33 and in-form Kemar Roach who razed the tourists with 5-33, reduced them to 104-7 by the close, still trailing by 276 runs with three days to go.

Bangladesh for the second time this series had won the toss and put the West Indies in to bat.
