CHATTOGRAM: All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan hit half a century on his return to test cricket when Bangladesh hit 328-7 at lunch on Thursday’s day two of the opening test against West Indies.

Shakib, who took his first test since September 2019 after a two-year ban – suspended for one year – by the International Cricket Council in October 2019 because he had not reported any attempts by a bookmaker, scored 68 points, making it the highest for the team to date .

The ace all-rounder helped Bangladesh gain the upper hand by sharing a 67 run with Mehidy Hasan.

Bangladesh lost Liton Das early after resuming the innings at 242-5. Liton added just four runs to his 34 before being sacked by left-wing weirdo Jomel Warrican.

At 248-6, Bangladesh could have lost the ground, but Shakib resisted and brought up his 25th half-century where he was patiently dealt with disciplined West Indies spinners.

Off-spinner Rakheem Cornwall was rewarded for his consistency with a wicket from Shakib, who was amazed by the additional jump.
