Bangladesh A team reached 47 for no loss on day three after setting an improbable 461 runs to win the third and final unofficial Test and draw the three-match series against West Indies.

The hosts drew the rain-hit first Test before losing the second match by three wickets.

Resuming the third day on 157-7 today, Bangladesh A were bowled out for 205, conceding a 240-run first innings lead at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. No.9 batter Nasum Ahmed made team-high 38.

Veerasammy Permaul was the wrecker-in-chief with 3-38 while Kevin Sinclair and Anderson Phillip took two wickets apiece.

West Indies A however chose to bat again instead of enforcing follow-on. They batted in one-day mode before declaring the second innings on 220-5 with opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul leading the charge from the front.

He was not out on 83 off 165 with seven fours and one six. Tagenarine, the son of legendary West Indies batter Shivnarine Chanderpaul made identical 83 in the first too. Captain Joshua Da Silva hammered 40 ball-47 with six fours and one six.

Saif Hasan claimed 3-62 while Nasum had figures of 2-56 for Bangladesh A.

Bangladesh A then ended the day unscathed, reaching 47 without losing any wicket. At stumps, Mahmudul Hasan Joy was batting on 28 with Zakir Hasan on 14.
