Opener Kieran Powell smashed a century in each innings before Bangladesh captured late wickets to keep hopes of an unlikely result in the first Test in Dhaka here on Friday.

The 22-year-old right-handed batsman scored 110 for his second century of the match to anchor his team to 244-6 at close on the fourth day, leading by 215 runs and setting up an intriguing fifth and final day. In the morning Bangladesh were dismissed for 556 runs in their first innings, taking a slender 29-run lead over the West Indies first knock of 527-4 declared.

Brief scores:
West Indies 527/4 decl and 244/6 (Powell 110, R Hossain 2/35) v Bangladesh 556
