Update : 19 Jun 2022, 09:29

Bangladesh are on the knife-edge of an innings defeat against West Indies after being reduced to 115-6 at lunch on just day three of the first Test at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on June 18. 

Skipper Shakib Al Hasan was batting on 5 with Nurul Hasan Sohan on 2 as Bangladesh still needed 47 runs to force West Indies batting for the second time in the match, reports BSS.

West Indies took 162 runs lead before being bowled out for 265 in the first innings in reply to Bangladesh's paltry 103.

Bangladesh were eying to avoid an innings defeat after resuming the day on 50-2. But a pumped up West Indies bowlers broke through with Kyle Myers who removed Najmul Hossain Shanto on 17.

Another overnight batter Mahmudul Hasan Joy played patiently but saw the wickets tumbling at the other end.

After scoring a duck in the first innings, Mominul Haque this time made 4, extending his lean batting streak to ninth straight single digit figure.

Inform Liton Das then was out on 17 and soon Joy followed him after playing 153 balls for his 42.

Shakib and Sohan saw off the session but question is whether they can save Bangladesh from 46th innings defeat in their Test history.
 
Kemar Roach, Alzzari Joseph and Kyle Myers took two wickets apiece.
