Bangladesh 104-7 (Roach 5-33)
Second Test, Saint Lucia, day two

Kemar Roach took a five-wicket haul as Bangladesh collapsed from 42 for one to close day two of the second and final Test against the West Indies in Saint Lucia on 104 for seven, trailing by 276 runs.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul had earlier finished unbeaten on 84 as the West Indies were bowled out for 380.

Roach ended the day with figures of five for 33 as Bangladesh put up limited resistance aside from Tamim Iqbal, who made 48.

The West Indies began the day on 246 for three and Bangladesh struck quickly to have Darren Bravo caught by Mushfiqur Rahim off Robiul Islam for 46.

Al-Amin Hossain then dismissed Jermaine Blackwood (8) and Denesh Ramdin (0) before Jerome Taylor hit a quickfire 40 in 31 balls, including five fours and two sixes.

He fell shortly before lunch, taken at 341 for eight, when he was caught at long-on by Mahmudullah off Taijul Islam.

Sulieman Benn also came out swinging, scoring 25 in 19 balls before he also fell to Hossain, while Chanderpaul passed his 65th Test half-century, going on to hit 84 in 199 balls.

Roach (0) and Shannon Gabriel (4) were unable to stay with him as Hossain finished with three for 80, Shafiul Islam two for 80, Robiul two for 63, Taijul two for 89 and Mahmudullah one for 49.

Bangladesh failed to reach tea without losing  a wicket in reply, Shamsur Rahman (1) offering Ramdin a leg-side catch for Roach's first wicket.

After the break, Roach charged in and delivered a spell that was too good for Bangladesh. He saw off Anamul Haque for nine, Tamim, then returned to remove Nasir Hossain for one and Taijul for 12.

With excellent support from Jerome Taylor (2-33), who dismissed Mominul Haque for three and Rahim for four, the West Indies reduced Bangladesh to 89 for seven when Taijul fell.

Mahmudullah was unbeaten on 13 in 25 balls and Shafiul had made six in 22 when play for the day was ended.

The West Indies lead the series after a 10-wicket win in the opening match in Saint Vincent.
