Bangladesh continued to suffer on the second day of the first Test in St Vincent as they not only failed to take any wickets, but also allowed West Indies opener Kraigg Brathwaite to score his maiden double century.

Brathwaite was brilliantly supported by veteran batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul, who is currently undefeated on 51.

Starting out the day onĀ 264/3, both teams did not even leave the pavilion for theĀ entire first session since it was wiped out due to a wet outfield. The outfield was absolutely drenched following heavy rain overnight.

When play finally started at 1.30pm local time, Brathwaite and Chanderpaul wasted no time in building on the team’s strong performance during the first day.

They ended up converting their three-run partnership into an unbeaten 146-run partnership, during which Brathwaite brought up his maiden double century and Chanderpaul his half-century, before stumps was called.

Brathwaite finished on 205 off 437 balls, which included 14 boundaries, while Chanderpaul remained undefeated on 51 off 177 deliveries, which included three boundaries.
