Bangladesh 2-69 at lunch in Test v Windies

Bangladesh are 2-69 on the first day of the first cricket Test against the West Indies after winning the toss and deciding to bat.

Tamim Iqbal was out to Kemar Roach for 9 runs within the first hour.

Roach, the most experienced West Indies bowler, delivered a full-length ball that sneaked between the bat and pad of Tamim and shattered his stumps.

During his short stay, Tamim surpassed Mushfiqur Rahim as the most prolific run-getter for Bangladesh in the Test format.

Tamim has now 4414 runs, one more than Mushfqur’s 4413.

It was Bangladesh’s first Test since the start of the coronavirus nearly a year ago, while the West Indies have played five matches.

Shakib Al Hasan is making a return after serving a two-year ban, with one year suspended, imposed by the ICC for failing to report corrupt approaches made to him by bookmakers.

The West Indies have three players making their Test debuts – Nkrumah Bonner, Kyle Mayers and Shayne Moseley.

While Bonner is a legspinner, Mayers and Moseley made it to the national side with their all-round performance in the domestic circuit.
