Bangladesh running away from batting issues

The St Vincent and St Lucia Tests have shown that Bangladesh's batting habits continue to be ineffective in any conditions slightly different from those they encounter at home. The 35th over of the Bangladesh innings produced ten runs and a wicket, which was an unimportant contribution to their score and only gave West Indies the wicket of a tail-ender.
