Bangladesh should plan to play at least 4 more hours tomorrow. First hour should set the tone for the rest of the day and most likely the outcome of the test. Nasir and Riyadh need to buckle down and not think about runs at all. If they can score 30 odd in the first hour and 75+ in the session without losing a wicket that would lay a perfect platform to bat till tea.
The least amount of time we give WI, especially Gayle, to bat in the 2nd inning the better. If Gayle gets going and gets enough time, WI could set us a target of 280 and with 5th day wicket, both WI spinners could be deadly. If the pitch remains as flat as it has been, then it shouldn't be an issue for us to draw the match.
