On the third day of the second test match between the West Indies and Bangladesh, Kemar Roach bats through the West Indies top order.
Senior spinner Kemar Roach decimated the top order of Bangladesh’s second innings on the third day of the second and final Test to put his team in a winning position, becoming just the sixth West Indian to capture 250 Test wickets.
Senior spinner Kemar Roach decimated the top order of Bangladesh’s second innings on Sunday’s third day of the second and final Test at the Daren Sammy Stadium in St. Lucia to put his team in a position to win, becoming just the sixth West Indian to achieve 250 Test wickets. At the end of the brief day, the West Indies were at 132 for six in their second innings and required further 42 runs to avoid an innings loss after Kyle Mayers’ top score of 146 sparked their first innings total of 408 runs. Roach’s three wickets helped the hapless guests.
By getting Tamim Iqbal’s wickets the second time around, Kemar Roach made apologies. Mahmudul Hasan Joy, my opening partner. At 32 for three, Anamul Haque defeated the South Asians. After winning “Man of the Match” in the first Test, Kemar Roach had 249 wickets. But he went without a wicket in the visitors’ 234-point first innings on Friday.
Another round of showers brought another momentary break.
Shakib al Hasan, the captain, and Najmul Hossain Shanto were both bowled by Alzarri Joseph after a brief period of calm. This was due to his pace and bounce. By outwitting veteran batsman Liton Das, Jayden Seales contributed as well.
Hold on until closing time, which came earlier than anticipated owing to further rain. Mehidy Hasan Miraz and wicketkeeper-batsman Nurul Hasan were the last two.
For their discomfort on these kinds of playing fields, they are once more cruelly exposed. They appear to be doomed to lose another heartbreaking game and the series 2-0 despite the forecast for further rain over the next two days.
After lunch, the West Indies were eventually dismissed, giving Khaled Ahmed his first five-wicket innings haul in Test cricket. Giving the Bangladeshis, who lost the first Test in Antigua by seven wickets a week earlier. On another otherwise depressing day, at least a moment of complete satisfaction.
Raymon Reifer and Nkrumah Bonner’s early wickets were earlier taken by the medium-pacer. Before dismissing Mayers for 146 and having the last man Seales caught behind to finish with five for 106 from 31.3 overs. Dismissed Joseph in the morning session that was cut short by rain.
West Indies was in a commanding position when the day began with 340 for five. However, things got worse when Mehidy caught Joshua da Silva leg-before after he had scored 29 in a 96-run sixth-wicket stand with Mayers.
After Joseph’s equally swift demise to Khaled, Kemar Roach entered the action as the wickets dropped at the other end. On 18, Kemar Roach won without losing.
Mayers’ second Test century came after his remarkable undefeated 210 on debut in Chattogram in February of last year against the same opposition. just over five hours in length. He struck 18 fours and two sixes while facing 208 deliveries. He lifted a catch off Khaled to Shoriful Islam at mid-on when he was seventh out.
Mayers said as he thought back on his inning, “I just wanted to keep playing my game.” which is to counterattack and control the bowling for the duration of the innings. It simply boils down to making rapid strokeplay judgments and knowing when the defense is needed. I give it everything I’ve got.
Tamim attempted a long off-drive, which wicketkeeper da Silva caught and gave Kemar Roach the coveted 250th Test wicket. Any chance of Bangladesh’s top order putting up a fight in the second innings was dashed, pushing him ahead of renowned fast bowler Michael Holding.
As new raindrops started to fall. After having Hasan Joy taken by Jermaine Blackwood and a third slip, he then had Anamul declared LBW.
In addition to ensuring a convincing victory for the West Indies. Roach will be eager for more success to get him closer to fellow Barbadian and another fast bowling legend of the past. Joel Garner, currently holds the fifth-best total of 259 wickets in West Indian history. Roach entered the fourth day of the match with 252 wickets.
