Mominul Haque's eighth Test century and some lower order resistance lifted Bangladesh into the ascendancy following a devastating spell from West Indies paceman Shannon Gabriel yesterday.

The Tigers looked to be cruising on 222-3 on Day One of the first Test but Gabriel put the brakes on their progress with four wickets in the space of 15 deliveries. Debutant Nayeem Hasan (24*) and Taijul Islam (32*) put on an unbroken 56-run stand to help Bangladesh close on 315-8.
