Bangladesh reduced West Indies to 75-5 at stumps after racking up 508 Saturday in its first innings on Day 2 of the second test and in the process, equalled a feat that was last achieved 128 years ago.

Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Sunil Ambris, Roston Chase and Shai Hope were all bowled by the Bangladesh bowlers - the first time the top five have all been dismissed in such a manner in a Test innings since 1890.

Offspinner Mehidy Hasan and left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan led the way, spinning the ball viciously as West Indies slumped to 29-5 in 12 overs.

Earlier, Mahmudullah helped Bangladesh build on their overnight score putting on a 111-run with Shakib for the sixth wicket, 92-run with Liton Das for the seventh wicket, and a 56-run with Taijul Islam (36) for the ninth wicket.
