Bishoo strikes earn West Indies first innings lead

West Indies were 27 for one wicket in their second innings after leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo struck twice to help dismiss Bangladesh for 231 on the third day of the second test on Monday.

The visitors, 355 all out in the first innings, were leading by 151 runs at the lunch break with Kieran Powell (12) and Kirk Edwards (14) at the crease.

Kraigg Brathwaite was the only batsman dismissed when he was run out after Naeem Islam hit the stumps with a direct throw before West Indies could open their account in the second innings.

Bangladesh, resuming on 204 for seven wickets, could add only 27 runs in 17 overs before they lost their remaining three wickets to the West Indies spinners.

Bishoo deceived overnight batsman Suhrawadi Shuvo (15) with a flighted delivery to give West Indies their first success of the morning with Brathwaite taking the catch at forward short-leg.

The dismissal exposed the Bangladesh tail, prompting overnight batsman Nasir Hossain (42) to go for a slog sweep against Marlon Samuels that found Edwards at deep midwicket.

Bishoo, who eventually finished with three for 62, bowled Shahadat Hossain (4) to give West Indies a 124-run first innings lead. Reuters
