Roach dents Bangladesh's session with late wicket


![IMG_20181130_140742_604.jpg]( made a slow, but steady, start in the morning session of the second Test in Dhaka on Friday (November 30). Debutant Shadman Islam led the side to 87 for 2 at lunch, with an unbeaten 36 with Mominul Haque falling just on the brink of lunch. Shadman and Sarkar got Bangladesh off to a slow start upfront, with just 20 runs being scored off the first ten overs after Windies introduced spin as early as the fourth over. Roston Chase got some turn and bounce, while the seamers bowled good lines to keep the Bangladesh batsmen in check. The bulk of overs though, was bowled by the spin troika of Chase, Jomel Warrican and Devendra Bishoo, along with Kraigg Brathwaite, with the pacers bowling only 11 of the 34 overs bowled in the session. Shadman displayed extreme maturity and a great temperament for a player on Test debut and adeptly kept out the probing deliveries, while putting away the poor ones, with most of his runs coming in the cover region. However, a lapse in concentration, just on the brink of the drinks break, cost Sarkar, who, after scores of 0 and 11 in the first Test, could only manage 19 on the day. Sarkar couldn't resist the temptation of driving a wide delivery from Chase that was tossed up outside off and ended up getting a thick outside edge that was pouched by Shai Hope in the slips. While the conditions were tough for the seamers, Kemar Roach got Mominul Haque to chip one towards mid off, off a leading edge, but it fell safe. Roach, however - in what is his 50th Test - had his man, just two balls away from the lunch break. Mominul was done in by pace and gifted his wicket away, lobbing one straight to mid on for an easy catch after mistiming a pull. He fell for 29, ending a 45-runs stand for the second wicket. Going into the Test with a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series, Bangladesh skipper, Shakib Al Hasan, opted to bat on what was a good surface to bat on the first day. That Windies opted to bowl their spinners predominantly was validation of why Bangladesh opted to go in with an all-spin attack for the Test, without a specialist seamer, for the first time ever, on a dry surface that had a bit of green and cracks on it that are expected to progressively widen. Mustafizur Rahman, who had bowled just four overs in the first Test, and Imrul Kayes, who has a knee injury, were replaced by Liton Das and Shadman Islam, with the former to keep wickets instead of Mushfiqur Rahim, who has a finger injury concern.
