Edwards puts Windies on top

Fidel Edwards picked up five wickets in a devastating opening spell to stun Bangladesh in Mirpur before the hosts recovered to end the second day of the second Test against the West Indies on 204 for 7 yesterday.

After dismissing the tourists for 355, Bangladesh had no answer to Edwards's extra pace and bounce on a supposedly low and slow track and were reduced to 59 for 5 before former captain Shakib al-Hasan provided some resistance with a quick-fire 73.

Shakib's eventful 74-ball knock was brought to an end when he was deceived by the flight and turn from Devendra Bishoo and was bowled, handing the spinner his only success of the day. REUTERS
