Dhaka: Middle-order batsman Naeem Islam made a maiden Test century while Shakib Al Hasan smashed a dominating 89 to help Bangladesh thwart the West Indies in the first Test in Dhaka here on Thursday.

The pair made a record fourth-wicket stand of 167 to help the home team close the third day on 455-6, just 72 shy of the visitors’ first innings total of 527-4 declared.

Islam, whose previous Test best was 59 not out against England in Dhaka in 2010, added another 76 for the fifth wicket with Mushfiqur Rahim (43) to end West Indies’s hopes of enforcing the follow-on.

At stumps, Mohammad Mahmudullah was unbeaten on 42 and Nasir Hossain 33 not out. The pair have so far added 87 on the unresponsive Shere Bangla stadium pitch. The West Indian bowlers laboured, as the home team had done on the first two days. Paceman Ravi Rampual was the pick with 3-101, Darren Sammy took two wickets and debutant spinner Veerasammy Permaul got one. (AFP)

Brief scores:

WI 1st inn: 527-4 dec

Ban 1st inn: 455-6 (N Islam 108, S Al Hasan 89; R Rampaul 3-101)
