Batsmen loose the match,Mushfiqur Rahim

Mushfiqur Rahim was one of the five batsmen dismissed in the second session:

The Bangladesh batsmen must put a greater value on their wickets, their captain Mushfiqur Rahim has said, after his side squandered an opportunity to beat a full-strength West Indies for the first time in a Test. Chasing 245, Bangladesh were 45 for 2 at lunch on the final day in Mirpur, but lost five wickets to slip to 129 for 7 by tea. They were dismissed for 167.

"Shakib [Al Hasan] got an unplayable ball, but some of our top-order batsmen played soft shots," Mushfiqur said. "It is not expected of them. We need to make the bowlers work hard for our wickets.

"I thought we had a good Test match except for the last two sessions today. We lost the game in the second session by losing five wickets. It became difficult for us to go all out for the win in the final session. We wanted to bat with six wickets in hand after tea, because scoring any amount of runs with just three wickets is difficult in the final session of a Test match."
