In an exciting turn of events on the third day of the four-day unofficial Test between Bangladesh ‘A’ and West Indies ‘A’ at the Syhlet International Stadium, Bangladesh ‘A’ staged a remarkable fight back.

After bowling out the West Indies ‘A’ team for 345 runs, Bangladesh ‘A’ found themselves trailing by 108 runs on the first innings. However, they rallied together to reach 274-6 at stumps, taking a lead of 166 runs into the final day of play.

The resurgence of the hosts can be attributed to the impressive performances by Shadlam Islam, Shahadat Hossain, and Irfan Sukkur.
