Spinners put Bangladesh in command against Windies

Rovman Powell is set for his captaincy debut during the ODI series against Bangladesh

Masrafe Mortaza-led team will meet West Indies for a three-match ODI series on December 9, with the first two games to be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur, before heading to Sylhet for the final fixture.

Debuting batsman Shadman Islam and captain Shakib Al Hasan took the Tigers to 259-5 by the end of play on Friday.

"I might say that I am disappointed with probably how things have unfolded, but I am very happy to be involved with Bangladesh", Walsh told reporters in Dhaka.

Shadman anchored the innings with his 199-run ball knock before Shakib and Mahmudullah Riyad put Bangladesh in control with an unbroken 69-run sixth-wicket partnership. That meant Bangladesh, for the first time, went into a test without a frontline pace bowler. For the first time we could enforce follow-on against any team, that too against a team who is ahead of us in rankings. "It was achieved", he said.

It proved to be right decision as Bangladesh's spin quartet_offspinners Mehidy Hasan and Nayeem Hasan and left-arm spinners Taijul Islam and Shakib Al Hasan_continued exposing West Indies' vulnerability against spin on a pitch that offered turn and variable bounce.

Skipper Shakib made the breakthrough yet again in the first over, dismissing Brathwaite (1) leg-before wicket. "We might get different types of wicket, and they should want to grab those opportunities as well".

He later picked up the wicket of Sunil Ambris (7).

Amid Hetmyer's free-flowing batting, Bangladesh spinners kept striking at regular intervals with Mehidy again at the fore.

Shimron Hetmyer, one of his victims, had been the only major obstacle to the Tigers, posting 93. Come the third day, off-spinner Hasan, first wrapped up opposition's first innings at 111, claiming career-best figures of 7/58, and then continued the good form in second innings bagging 5/59.

Hetmyer was the eighth man to fall and tailender Jomel Warrican (0) departed two overs later before Kemar Roach (37no) and Shermon Lewis (20) delayed Bangladesh's victory with a last-wicket stand of 42, which was ended when Taijul Islam pinned the latter lbw.
