Roach leaves Bangladesh in tatters

Windies v Bangladesh

Kemar Roach thrilled on his way to a five-wicket haul, leaving the Bangladesh batsmen dazed and confused. His 12-over spell after the tea interval gave West Indies full command at the end of the second day, with the visitors left lurching at 104 for seven.

They are now 276 runs behind West Indies' 380 all out from earlier in the day. The three-man pace attack was what Denesh Ramdin used for all but two overs till stumps.

Two views on West Indian cricket future

Sun, Sep 14, '14

 

Commentary

What price, West Indies cricket?

Tony Becca


Once upon a time, West Indies cricket was the pride and joy of the West Indian people, far and wide. Today, it is almost the opposite: it is almost the embarrassment of the people, all of them, wherever they reside.

It has nothing to do with the fact that West Indies cricket no longer produces or possesses the great cricketers which it once did, it no longer wins more matches than it loses and that, obviously, it is no longer the best in the world as it was once.

 

Changing future to save the past


Tony Cozier

It is an occasion to be celebrated; it is, as well, cause for reflection on the steady decline of the past two decades and on the recent plans to completely transform the outdated structure of the regional game.  
Over the 86 years since the inaugural Test, against England at Lord’s in June, 1928, a host of great players and unforgettable matches has created a special West Indies legacy.

Openers set up strong day for West Indies

Sat, Sep 13, '14

 

Windies v Bangladesh

Given that only a small crowd came to the Beausejour Stadium to watch West Indies' 500th Test match, the swaying fortunes of West Indies and Bangladesh was what illuminated the occasion. The first day of the second Test could have gone either way. In the end, it was the home side who emerged happier, but not to the extent they may have imagined at the end of a wicketless first session.

West Indies were 246 for three at stumps, a score that reflected the fact that they did not take full advantage of a 143-run opening partnership between Kraigg Brathwaite and the debutant Leon Johnson. It also flattered them, since they lost their way in the final session and Bangladesh bowled well but dropped some important catches.
