West Indies duo Marlon Samuels and Darren Bravo punished Bangladesh's bowlers in Khulna

Marlon Samuels: career revival continued with another century

Sohag Gazi celebrates the wicket of Chris Gayle

Marlon Samuels hit his third century of the year as West Indies closed day two of the second Test against Bangladesh on 241-2 in their first innings, still 146 runs behind.

Samuels finished on 109 not out alongside Darren Bravo, who contributed an unbeaten 85 to a third-wicket stand worth 198 so far.

Bangladesh had resumed on 365-8 in their first innings at the start of the day with number 10 Abul Hasan, making his Test debut, on 100 not out.

Mahmudullah, who contributed 76 to a ninth-wicket stand of 184, offered a return catch to medium pacer Darren Sammy (3-74) in the third over of the morning.

Hasan advanced to 113 before being last out, a sixth victim for fast bowler Fidel Edwards (6-90), to fall four short of the record score by a number 10. Bangladesh were all out for 387.

West Indies were reduced to 43-2 in the 13th over of their reply with both openers, Kieran Powell and Chris Gayle, back in the pavilion.

Powell (13) pulled a short delivery from seam bowler Rubel Hossain (1-31) to Shakib Al Hasan on the square-leg boundary and Gayle (25) was caught behind from a miscued sweep at left-arm spinner Sohag Gazi (1-67).

But Samuels joined Bravo through to lunch on 62-2 and their partnership flowered throughout the remainder of the day.

Samuels went to three figures from 227 balls and, by stumps, had struck 13 fours and a six, while Bravo's 197-ball contribution contained seven fours.

West Indies lead the two-match series 1-0 after their 77-run win in Dhaka.
