The day started brightly for the Tigers, as Miraz and Khaled took out Joshua Da Silva and Joseph respectively. Centurion Kyle Mayers, alongside Kemar Roach looked to build West Indies' lead even further.
Lunch was taken early after the first bout of rain. Khaled finally managed to dismiss Mayers for a well played 146. With the last recognized batter out, Bangladesh finally saw a way through. West Indies were finally all out for 408, with a mammoth lead of 174. Khaled Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers for the Tigers, as he picked his maiden five wicket haul.
Bangladesh yet again suffered due to their poor batting. Tamim Iqbal nicked in the second over, chasing a wide delivery. This gave Roach his 250th Test wicket. A few boundaries later, Mahmudul Hasan Joy also perished. Anamul Haque was trapped in the front by Roach just before rain came in for the second time.
Litton Das and Najmul Hossain Shanto had the responsibility to take Bangladesh out of this deep hole. However, Litton was removed after a brief resistance, as Seales pinned him for a lbw. Shanto, who was looking to weather the storm of Windies pacer, finally gave in at 42. Skipper Shakib lost his wicket due to lack of footwork, leaving his side in a bigger hole.
