Windies ride on Brathwaite ton

Staff Correspondent | Update:
Kraigg BrathwaiteA century from Kraigg Brathwaite put West Indies in a comfortable position on the first day of the second Test against West Indies on Thursday.
 
The Caribbean side ended the day with 295 for 4 put into bat first.
 
Mehedi Hasan Miraz did grab three wickets but barring Devon Smith, the hosts' top-order batsmen all played their role to give Brathwaite due support. 
 
The spinner first removed Devon Smith thanks to a Mominul Haque catch with the score on 9 and then trapped Kieran Powell (29) leg before when the hosts were on 59.
 
Taijul Islam soon got Shai Hope (29) caught behind but Brathwaite and Shimron Hetmyer added 111 in the fourth wicket to cement their team's position.
 
Brathwaite hit 110 off 279 balls before falling victim to Miraj as Taijul took a catch.
 
Hetmyer was unbeaten on 84 and he will be keen to reach three figures when the game begins on the second day.
