KHULNA: Bangladesh were 226-6 at close on the fourth day of the second and final Test in Khulna on Saturday, needing another 35 runs to avoid an innings defeat against the West Indies.

Allrounder Shakib Al Hasan fell in the last over of the day for 97. Nasir Hossain was unbeaten on 64.

West Indian paceman Tino Best took three wickets to leave Bangladesh tottering at 85 for five at tea.

The 31-year-old jolted Bangladesh’s second innings after coming in at second change to push the home team towards an innings defeat after the West Indies declared at 648-9, taking a 261-run lead after the first innings.

Shakib Al Hasan was unbeaten on 20 and Nasir Hossain was one not out, with Bangladesh needing another 176 runs to avoid an innings defeat.

Best has given the West Indies a good chance of wrapping up the two-match series 2-0 after they took the first Test in Dhaka by 77 runs.

Best had opener Tamim Iqbal (28) with the first ball of his first over, then rattled Naeem Islam’s stump with a sharp incoming delivery with his fourth ball before dismissing Shahriar Nafees (21) in his third over.

Bangladesh were off to a disastrous start when opener Nazimuddin was trapped leg-before for nought off paceman Fidel Edwards’s third ball of the innings.

Iqbal and Nafees took the score to 49 with the help of eight boundaries between them before Best was introduced.

Captain Mushfiqur Rahim was bolwed by left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul for ten to leave Bangladesh struggling at 82-5.

Earlier, Shakib became only the second Bangladeshi bowler to complete 100 wickets in Test cricket as he dismissed four batsmen in the morning session to end the tourists’ innings.

West Indian batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul remained unbeaten on a brilliant 150. The experienced left-hander held the innings, hitting 12 fours and a six off 282 balls. He also hit 203 not out in the first Test.
