His partner Brathwaite did complete his fifty and was reducing the deficit alongside Reifer. However, Mehidy Hasan Miraz gave Bangladesh another much needed breakthrough as he removed the captain Brathwaite for 51. Khaled Ahmed produced a double wicket over, taking out Reifer and Bonner. West Indies were 132/4 and Bangladesh were back into the game.

Wicketkeeper Joshua de Silva is providing support from the other end, giving Bangladesh no way through to cause further damage.
