10-07-2009, 11:39 PM
Bangladesh 1st innings: 238/10 (88.2 overs, Day 2)
West Indies 1st innings: 17/1 (7.0 overs, Day 2)

Toss: Bangladesh won the toss and selected to bat first.

Bangladesh's inning: It’s another day of disappointment for the fans of Bangladesh cricket. Even playing against a “backup” West Indies team, batsmen of Bangladesh cricket team has trembled. At the end portion of day 2 Bangladesh got all out scoring just 238 runs. Really disappointing. New captain Mashrafe Mortaza was the highest scorer (39 in 52) of this innings.

Fall of wickets: 1-45 (Tamim Iqbal, 19.6 ov), 2-49 (Imrul Kayes, 22.5 ov), 3-79 (Raqibul Hasan, 36.2 ov), 4-98 (Junaid Siddique, 44.2 ov), 5-100 (Mohammad Ashraful, 45.3 ov), 6-121 (Shakib Al Hasan, 51.6 ov), 7-149 (Mahmudullah, 63.1 ov), 8-172 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 70.2 ov), 9-207 (Mashrafe Mortaza, 79.1 ov), 10-238 (Shahadat Hossain, 88.2 ov).

Full scorecard of 1st innings is posted here. (http://ilovetigercricket.blogspot.com/2009/07/bd-vs-wi-2009-1st-test-day-2.html)

West Indies' inning: West Indies played only seven overs today after they got Bangladesh all out. In these seven overs they managed to get 17 runs losing 1 wicket. Trembling stuff from West Indies too.

Fall of Wickets: 1-15 (Richards, 5.3 ov)

Full scorecard will be posted after the end of this innings.

Because of rain, the first day could hold just 16 overs of cricket. Day 2’s cricket was also interrupted by rain.

For those who don’t know, West Indian players are on a strike demanding better salary and incentives. That’s why West Indies cricket board had to put together a backup team to play against Bangladesh cricket team. In this backup team of 15, there are 9 debutants. They have never played cricket with each other before. I can’t believe that Bangladesh is trembling before this “new” West Indies team too.

I hope that the rain stops soon and we can enjoy a nice day of cricket tomorrow. I hope that the nest day will belong to Bangladesh.
