KINGSTOWN – Captain Mushfiqur Rahim struck an unbeaten 70 as Bangladesh batted doggedly to reach 256-5 in their  second innings on day four as it faced an uphill battle to save the first cricket Test in the Dhaka Bank series against the West Indies at Arnos Vale Sports Complex yesterday.

The tourists, forced to follow on after trailing by 302 on first innings, also got solid contributions from Mahmudullah (66) and opener Tamim Iqbal (53) as they batted through the day to reduce the deficit to 46.

Mushfiqur rode his luck at times to strike eight fours off 193 balls in just over four hours. He shared a resolute fifth-wicket stand of 130 with Mahmudullah, who hit seven fours and a six off 151 deliveries.

Earlier, left-hander Tamim belted four fours and three sixes in his 107-ball knock.
