Bangladesh's spinners shared the early wickets to stop West Indies taking complete control of the second and final test on Saturday.
West Indies reached 41-3 in its second innings at stumps on day three for a lead of 154 runs.
Nkrumah Bonner (8) and nightwatchman Jomel Warrican (2) are at the crease.
Offspinner Rahkeem Cornwall earlier helped West Indies take a 113-run first innings lead, claiming 5-74 as Bangladesh was bowled out for 296 in reply to West Indies' 409. It was Cornwall's second five-for in test cricket.
Liton and Mehidy shared a 126-run stand for the seventh wicket to reduce the first-innings deficit.
Cornwall had Mithun caught by captain Kraigg Brathwaite on 15. Mushfiqur brought up his 22nd test 50, pushing Cornwall's delivery toward mid-on for a single. But he was dismissed by Cornwall soon after while trying to play a reverse sweep shot.
Liton brought up his seventh test 50 with a fierce cut past point for a boundary, and has reached 1,000 test runs in 22 matches.
But the spinners brought the hosts back on track, bowling with a tight line and length.
West Indies won the first test by three wickets.
