West Indies are hoping to beat as long as possible to extend their first innings to over 350 if they resume their innings today, batsman Nkrumah Bonner said overnight.
The Caribbean team finished the first Day of the second test with 223: 5, Bonner and Joshua Da Silva unbeaten with 74 and 22 respectively.
Bonner hopes to be able to pick up where he and Silva left off on Thursday and a considerable sum in the first innings to have the board.
“It is important that we hit as long as possible. We’ll take anything over 350. I think that’s a really good total, « Bonner told the media after the game of the day.
Bonner frustrated the bowlers in Bangladesh in the second innings of the Chattogram Test, facing 245 deliveries for almost five and a half hours struggled to reassure Kyle Mayers of dominating the procedure on the other end.
Mayers only left for five on Thursday, but Bonner looked solid again in the middle and said he was sticking to the same method that worked wonders for him in Chattogram.
« I think this wicket has a little more bounce, but it’s similar [to Chattogram]. So basically it’s the same game plan. I’ve tried as many balls to play on the forefoot as possible and keep the ball in the V for as long as possible. ”
