Bangladesh’s 2nd inning: After Day 4 (http://ilovetigercricket.blogspot.com/2009/07/ban-vs-wi-2009-1st-test-day-4.html)… Bangladesh lost the wicket of Shakib Al Hasan (30 in 48) just after 3 overs since the match resumed today. Mahmudullah Also got out soon after Shakib. Infect all the remaining 5 wickets today fell really quick. Yesterday they looked very solid, but today the tigers didn't bat well. Anyway, that doesn't matter as this lead of 276 runs brought Bangladesh their second ever test win.

Fall of wickets: After Day 4… 6-327 (Shakib Al Hasan, 108.2 ov), 7-342 (Mahmudullah, 115.6 ov), 8-344 (Mashrafe Mortaza, 118.3 ov), 9-344 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 119.1 ov), 10-345 (Rubel Hossain, 120.1 ov)

West Indies' 2nd inning: What can I say, the West Indies' players looked good in the first innings, but in this innings they just stumbled infront of the spinners of the bangladesh cricket team. Mahmudullan Riad took 5 wickets in this innings. It was his debut match. Shakib Al Hasan took 3 and Mohammad Ashraful took 1 wicket. There was a run out this this wicket which was directed by Raqibul Hasan. The pacers Shahadat and debutant Rubel didn't get any wickets. The tiger captain did not bowl in this innings because of his knee pain (again). I hope that his knee heals soon. In the West Indies line up no one could pose a threat to Bangladesh exept DE Bernard. He scored an unbeaten 52 runs 134 balls.

Scorecard is here. (http://ilovetigercricket.blogspot.com/2009/07/ban-vs-wi-2009-1st-test-day-5.html)

Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Richards, 2.1 ov), 2-33 (Phillips, 5.6 ov), 3-69 (Reifer, 22.2 ov), 4-72 (Dowlin, 24.4 ov), 5-82 (Walton, 28.3 ov), 6-119 (Sammy, 39.6 ov), 7-151 (Miller, 57.2 ov), 8-164 (Austin, 63.2 ov), 9-172 (Roach, 65.5 ov), 10-181 (Best, 70.1 ov).

The bottom line is Bangladesh Won. Now tiger fans can celebrate after a long time.
