Ban vs WI, 2nd Test – Bonner

News

Bonner, who scored his second successive half-century, says West Indies are eyeing 350-plus in the first innings

After scoring his second successive Test half-century, Nkrumah Bonner said he had a similar game plan in the second Test in Dhaka as he did in the first, in Chattogram. Bonner was West Indies’ backbone on the first day, seeing them through to stumps with an unbeaten 74 next to his name.

After seeing two wickets fall in quick succession at the other end, No. 4 Bonner added 62 for the fifth wicket with Jermaine Blackwood and is currently involved in a 45-run unbroken sixth-wicket stand with Joshua Da Silva.

Bonner said that he was focused on playing the ball as straight as possible by putting his balance on his front foot.

“Every innings I play, I put pressure on myself,” Bonner said. “We get paid to make runs and to be consistent. That’s exactly what I am trying to do. I think this wicket has a little more bounce, but it is similar [to the one in Chattogram]. So basically it is the same game plan. I tried to play as many balls as possible on the front foot, and keep the ball in the ‘V’ for as long as possible.”
