(CMC) – Test hopeful, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, missed out on a half-century as West Indies A took command of their opening four-day ‘Test’ against Bangladesh A here yesterday.
At the close on day two at the Darren Sammy Cricket Ground, the hosts were well placed on 165 for three, requiring only three further runs to overhaul Bangladesh A’s first innings of 165.

The left-hander Chanderpaul, the son of Test legend Shivnarine Chanderpaul, struck 49 while West Indies white-ball player Keacy Carty stroked 36 and opener Jeremy Solozano, 32.
Tevin Imlach was unbeaten at the end on 23 and was partnered by captain Joshua Da Silva on 14.

Earlier, fast bowler Marquino Mindley added a further two wickets to his tally to end with five for 59 as Bangladesh A, resuming from their overnight 135 for six, lost their last four wickets cheaply.
Captain Mohammad Mithun, unbeaten on 42, was first out for exactly 50, striking eight fours off 85 deliveries in a shade over 2-½ hours.

Fast bowling all-rounder Justin Greaves added another wicket to his collection to end with three for 26.
In reply, the 26-year-old Chanderpaul anchored an opening stand of 78 with Solozano, facing 120 balls in just over three hours at the crease and striking five fours and a six.

Solozano, also left-handed, counted five fours in his 99-ball knock before becoming the first casualty of the innings, bowled by 22-year-old seamer Rejaur Rahman Raja.
Chanderpaul then added a further 42 for the second wicket with Carty before finally perishing via run-out with his landmark in sight, stranded mid-pitch in a mix-up over a second run.

Carty faced 62 deliveries and counted five fours before falling with 15 runs added to leave West Indies 135 for three, but Imlach and Da Silva saw out the day safely in an unbroken 30-run, fourth-wicket stand.
