West Indies celebrate a wicket during the first Test of the Padma Bridge series against Bangladesh in Antigua.

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan hit an unbeaten half century while wicket-keeper Nurul Hasan is not out on 49, as Bangladesh go into tea on 210 for six, for a lead of 48 runs on day two of the first Test in Antigua.

The pair has, so far, added an unbroken 101 runs for the seventh wicket with Al Hasan contributing 53 from 88 balls with four fours.

Nurul Hasan has also weathered the storm with his skipper to post 49 not out from 107 balls with eight fours.

The pair came together with Bangladesh in deep trouble at 109 for six after Kyle Mayers and Kemar Roach had picked up two wickets each in the morning session.
