Brathwaite Hits Double On Slow Day
West Indies 407-3 (Brathwaite 205no) v
First Test, Saint Vincent, day two
Kraigg Brathwaite hit his maiden Test double-century as the West Indies batted through a rain-interrupted second day of the first Test against Bangladesh in Saint Vincent without losing a wicket.
Resuming the day on 264 for three, Brathwaite advanced to finish the day on 205 not out with Shivnarine Chanderpaul unbeaten alongside him on 51.
The pair extended their partnership to an unbeaten 146 as Bangladesh struggled for the second day in a row.
However, the pace of run-scoring was slow throughout the day, in which only 66 overs were bowled in all.
Thoughts will now turn to the timing of a West Indian declaration as they push for a result in this, the first match in a two-game series.
Brathwaite has so far faced 437 balls, hitting 14 fours while Chanderpaul has faced 177 balls, hitting three boundaries.
