    Roshen Silva made 148 and formed crucial partnerships in the lower order with Niroshan Dickwella and Dinesh Chandimal to post 359.

    Kemar Roach was the most successful with 6/92 from 34.5 overs.

    A very poor batting performance from us saw our innings wrapped in 177 with only Kraigg Braithwaite the only guy to cross 50.

    Dilruwan Perera took his 6th 5-wicket haul as he finished with 5/50.

    Sri Lanka posted 292 with everybody chipping. Roshen Silva made 48 to continue his good form while Alzarri Joseph and Devendra Bishoo combined to pick up 7 wickets. We were set a mammoth total of 474 with 2 days to go.

    Elvin Lewis played a brilliant innings but didn't get much support as we folded for 388 with all the Sri Lankan bowlers chipping in.


    Sri Lanka won this by 86 runs.

      5 players made half centuries but none of them converted it into big innings as we went past 300 and finished on 334.

      Dilruwan Perera continued his good form taking another 5 wicket haul and finished with 5/96.

      Kemar Roach took 4 wickets and the two spinners, Chase and Miller took couple of wickets each as we restrict Sri Lanka to 274 despite Dickwella and Chandimal's heroics for the second consecutive test.

      We needed to set a big target and Braithwaite gave the impetus that our innings needed with his 7th test century and Chase contributed in the lower order with a 81 as we finished at 258 to set a target for 318.

      Lakmal and Herath took 4 wickets apiece to star for Sri Lanka.

      Shannon Gabriel took his 3rd 5 wicket haul as he took 5/50 and he was ably supported by Nikita Miller who picked up 3 as we gun down the Lankans for a mere 156 and draw level in the series


      West Indies won by 162 runs.

        A pathetic performance with only Braithwaite and Lewis going past 50 as we get wrapped up for just 232.

        Perera picked up another 3 wickets while Herath picked 4.

        Dhananjaya de Silva who was brought in place of the injured Dickwella hit his 5th Test century and Chandimal continued his crackling form with a 95 as they post a big score of 446.

        Gabriel and Bishoo picks up 4 wickets apiece.

        A record 4th wicket partnership of 177 vs Sri Lanka and the highest at Antigua between Roston Chase and Shai Hope was still not enough as Lakmal's only 2nd ever 5 wicket haul in tests restricted us to 258 which meant Lankans needed only 56 runs to win.

              Blackwood and Powell, the two changes that we did from the Sri Lanka series did not fetch us the returns that we were expecting as we folded in for a mere 206. Chase carried his form from the last series with a very slow 82 with Rubel Hossein breaking our back with only his 2nd ever 5 wicket haul in tests. He was ably supported by the young Chinaman bowler Taijul Islam who picked 4 including the important wickets of Brathwaite and Chase.

              Tamim Iqbal at the top and later on, Mominul Haque and Mahmudullah at the lower order powered Bangladesh to 423. Bishoo finally came good as he picked up 6 wickets for 97 runs.

              We needed to erase the massive lead of Bangladesh and Brathwaite, Lewis and the in-form Chase along with Shai Hope gave useful contributions but it was still not enough as an inspired performance by Taijul Islam who build on his first innings haul by taking 7 wickets and created history for the best bowling figures by a Bangladeshi against West Indies in a test match. He finished with 11/218 in the match.

              We almost made match of these with Kemar Roach leading away with 5/86 but the target was too low so we lost.

                  A masterclass from Tamim Iqbal who hit his first test double ton and a fighting 93 from Nurul Hasan down the order meant Bangladesh posted 435. Kemar Roach continued his good form from the last test picking up another 5 wicket haul and finishing with 6/96.

                  The two in-form batsman, Chase and Lewis continued to make runs while the new man Edwards made another half century but a sensational collapse triggered by the spectacular Taijul Islam who bettered his 1st innings haul with 8/123 meant we got wrapped up on 310.

                  Nazmul Hossain and Mahmudullah combined to take Bangladesh past 250 and Miller's 5 wicket haul meant they posted 276 setting a target of 401.

                  Pathetic, just pathetic. We got bundled out for our lowest score against Bangladesh, only 98. The good old Shakib Al Hasan tightened the screws with yet another 5 wicket haul.


                  Bangladesh wins the test by 303 runs.

                    We need lot of work in the Test team if we are to come anywhere close to the top teams. In the last 5 home tests, we have won just one and lost 4.


                    Anyways, here are the statistics for the season so far:

                    Chase has been by and far our best batsman. We need to build up the batting order around him.

                        Lewis carried his good form from tests with a well made 69 while the young Ambris scored another half century but the finishing touch was given by Hetmyer who smashed an unbeaten 83
                        from 67 balls with 11 boundaries and 2 sixes to push us to 275.

                        The two veterans, Narine and Russell ensured it would be an easy victory for us with Narine picking 5 and Russell 3. Only Mushfiqur Rahim provided some resistance with 79 of 67 balls.


                        WI leads the series 1-0 and Hetmyer is declared MOM.

                          A poor batting performance with only Lewis and Pollard crossing 50 as we post only 223.

                            Lewis failed this time but Hetmyer took responsibility and then a blinder from Narine with 48 of 40 balls meant we posted 233, marginally better than the last match.

                            Despite Mosaddek and Nurul's attempts, Bangladesh folded for 180 due to Bishoo and the new man Reifer taking 3 wickets apiece. Sunil Narine also contributed with 2 wickets and took the MOM for his all-round performance.


                            WI win the series 2-1 and S Narine is declared MOM.
