Both Liton Das and Mehidy Hasan Miraz hit fifty each in the seventh wicket stand as the hosts are thriving slowly in the Dhaka Test against West Indies.
At the tea break of day three of the game, Bangladesh were batting at 272 for six in 88 overs with Liton and Mehidy were batting at 66 and 53 respectively, reports UNB.
This partnership helped the Tigers avoid a prospective follow-on as they lost four early wickets on day two. Mushfiqur Rahim and Mohammad Mithun, who were unbeaten at the end of the previous day, failed to come up with big innings despite having solid starts.
When Mushfiqur departed for 54, Bangladesh were short of 55 runs. Liton and Mehdiy scored those runs easily and already passed a 100-run mark in the partnership.
Earlier, West Indies posted 409 runs in their first innings. Abu Jayed and Taijul Islam took four wickets each for the Tigers.
