This partnership helped the Tigers avoid a prospective follow-on as they lost four early wickets on day two. Mushfiqur Rahim and Mohammad Mithun, who were unbeaten at the end of the previous day, failed to come up with big innings despite having solid starts.
When Mushfiqur departed for 54, Bangladesh were short of 55 runs. Liton and Mehdiy scored those runs easily and already passed a 100-run mark in the partnership.
Earlier, West Indies posted 409 runs in their first innings. Abu Jayed and Taijul Islam took four wickets each for the Tigers.
