Tour game, Warner Park
Shivnarine Chanderpaul, guesting for St Kitts & Nevis, scored 183 as Bangladesh's three-day tour game at Warner Park was drawn.
There were also centuries for Bangladeshis Mushfiqur Rahim (106 not out) and Nasir Hossain (100) as they prepared well for the first Test, which begins in St Vincent on Friday (5th September).
In Bangladesh's first innings, a series of batsmen made starts before Imrul Kayes' 44 preceded centuries from Rahim, who faced 170 balls, and Hossain, who faced 153.
Chanderpaul then dominated the reply, hitting 183 in 315 balls, hitting 20 fours and two sixes while opener Shane Jeffers (118) also passed three figures.
Rubel Hossain, Taijul Islam and Shuvagoto Hom all took three wickets as St Kitts gained a small lead on first innings.
The Bangladeshis then closed on 148 for two after openers Tamim Iqbal (43) and Shamsur Rahman (46) retired.
