An unbeaten 66 from Tamim Iqbal allowed Bangladesh to make steady progress and reach 109 for one in their second innings at lunch in the opening Test against West Indies on Sunday.

At the interval, Tamim has so far struck eight fours from 137 balls in just over three hours of batting and Junaid Siddique was not out on 14, after Bangladesh continued from their overnight total of 26 without loss on the fourth day of the Test at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex.

Tamim reached his 50 from 72 balls, when he turned a delivery from Darren Sammy into mid-wicket for a single.

Brief scores (at lunch): Bangladesh 238 & 109 for 1 (Tamim Iqbal batting 66) v West Indies 307 (O Phillips 94, D Bernard 53). AFP
