Bangladesh registered their lowest score in Test match cricket as they collapsed for 43 against West Indies in the first test match here at Antigua.
West Indies won the toss and put the opposition into bat trying to take advantage of the bowler friendly conditions. They used the moist and green pitch to their fullest picking up all 10 wickets in just 18.4 overs.
Kemar Roach was the pick of the bowlers picking up 5 while Holder and Cummins chipped in with 2 and 3 wickets respectively. Litton Das on the other hand top scored for Bangladesh scoring 25 runs.
Here is how Twitter reacted to Bangladesh’s collapse:
