Seamer Kemar Roach’s sensational five-wicket haul inside the first hour sent Bangladesh crashing to the lowest total in Tests in nearly half a century, as West Indies took a stranglehold on the opening Test at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, in Antigua, yesterday.

Opting to bowl first, the Windies crushed the tourists for an embarrassing 43 all out — their lowest-ever Test total and second shortest first innings in Test history.

Meanwhile, Argentina legend Diego Maradona has apologised to Fifa for saying England committed a “monumental robbery” in beating Colombia in the World Cup last 16.

Maradona accused referee Mark Geiger of bias towards England.

According to BBC Sports, Fifa said his comments were “entirely inappropriate” and insinuations about the referee “completely unfounded”.
