GROS ISLET, St Lucia – Veteran seamer Kemar Roach marched into the 250 club with a three-wicket haul yesterday that helped push Bangladesh closer to defeat in the second Test at the Daren Sammy National Stadium.

Without a wicket in the first innings after entering the contest on 249 wickets, the Barbadian, who turns 34 next Thursday, handed himself an early birthday present by grabbing three for 32 as Bangladesh slid to 132 for six at the close of a rain-hit third day.

Fast bowler Alzarri Joseph maintained his form with two for 31, leaving the visitors still requiring a further 42 runs in order to avoid another heavy defeat on Monday’s penultimate day.

Left-hander Kyle Mayers had earlier struck 146 as West Indies, resuming the morning on 340 for five, were dismissed for 408, about 45 minutes after lunch.

Unbeaten on 126 overnight, Mayers faced 208 balls in just over five hours and struck 18 fours and two sixes. (CMC)
