Bangladesh defeated the West Indies by an innings and 184 run in the 2nd and final Cricket Test at Dhaka in Bangladesh to win 2-match series 2-nil, the third day of the 5-day match.
It was Bangladesh’s first innings win in Test Cricket and was the result off off-spinner, Mehidy Hasan’s 12 for 117, to surpass his own record for the best bowling figures for Bangladesh.
Mehidy took nine wickets yesterday, the most by a Bangladesh bowler on a single day, and all 40 West Indies wickets fell to the Bangladesh spinners, a first for a bowling side in a two-Test series.
Mehidy completed his second five-for in the match when he dismissed Jomel Warrican caught and bowled without scoring, after which left-arm, leg-spinner, Taijul Islam took the wicket off fast bowler, Shermon Lewis to complete the win. Lewis added 42 runs for the ninth wicket with fast bowler, Kemar Roach.
The West Indies had totals of 111 and 213 in the match. Middle order batsman, Shimron Hetmyer was the outstanding West Indies batsman scoring 93 and 92 balls with nine sixes and a four.
His tally of sixes was the most by a batsman in Tests against Bangladesh, surpassing Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara’s eight sixes in Chittagong in 2014.
The final scores: Bangladesh 508, the West Indies 111 and 213.
The teams will now meet in a three-match One Day International series, with the 1st match scheduled for Sunday at Dhaka.
