KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) Kraigg Brathwaite’s second consecutive century put West Indies in control on the first day of the second cricket test against Bangladesh on Thursday,
The opener struck 110 runs off 279 balls to lift the West Indies, 1-0 ahead in the series, to 295 for four at the close after Bangladesh won the toss and sent in the home side to bat.
Bangladesh had reduced the hosts to 138 for three, but Brathwaite joined forces with Shimron Hetmyer to add 109 for the fourth wicket.
Despite Brathwaite becoming Mehidy Hasan Miraz’s third victim, Hetmyer reached stumps 16 runs short of a maiden test century.
