Well done Tapash, Talha, Manju, the spinners and PILOT. By the way, Sumon took the last catch. Hopefully he'll make West Indies work for his wicket.

93.3 Tapash Baisya to Lawson, OUT: it's all over! short delivery on the
middle, Lawson goes for the pull and ends up getting a top edge,
the ball balloons up over the slips, Habibul Bashar runs back and
takes a good catch, career best figures for Tapash Baisya

West Indies 296/10, Partnership of 17
JJC Lawson c Habibul Bashar b Tapash Baisya 6 (12b 1x4 0x6)
PT Collins 12* (10b 2x4) Tapash Baisya 21.3-2-72-4 (1nb)

Sumon, Rokon both actually did not seem to be good slip fielders. I guess it will come in time as Bangladesh plays more test matches.

When Sumon dropped or say, could not take the catch of Drakes off Moni, then he came under attention of Arun Lal & company.

Then they pointed out the weakness of Sumon's slip fielding though he had fielded in the slip position for Bangladesh may be since the inaugural test match of Bangladesh.

The weakness of first Sumon, then also Rokon's is that they don't stand low enough, if they get a very low ball to catch, then they won't be able to catch those low balls.

Also, I think it was Tony Cozier who said that Sumon particularly stands in a very relaxed way at first slip and that players who field in slip position in pitches of Australia that slip fielders stand like that.

Later in the day, Chanderpaul was fielding at slips and the commentators showed that it was the way to stand in the slips.

Usually Chanderpaul fields at the point position and because Sarwan had hurt his thumb that Chanderpaul had opted to field at the slips and Sarwan has gone to the points position.

A slip when Moni is bowling ? How fast is this guy - our Maninder Singh ??
