Bangladesh vs West Indies, 2nd Test: Stat Highlights
Nearly five months after being thrashed 2-0 in a pace-dominated series in the West Indies, Bangladesh served up revenge on a spinning platter to the same opponents with an innings-and-184-run win in the Dhaka Test to complete a 2-0 series win.
After winning the first Test, hosts were riding high on confidence and this resulted in an even more clinical performance by them, registering their first ever win by an innings.
Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and opted to bat first. From here on, everything went according to the plan for Bangladesh. Debutant Shadman Islam started his career with a solid 76 and got support from other batsmen. Captain himself played a brilliant knock of 80 but it was Mahmudullah's 136 that helped hosts to put a mammoth total of 508 on the scoreboard.
In reply, West Indian batsmen surrendered against an all-spin bowling attack and were bundled out for 111. Mehidy Hasan scalped 7 wickets while Shakib claimed the remaining three. The match was over at this very moment and the rest was a mere formality.
Mehidy Hasan took another fifer in the second inning and this time West Indies managed to reach 213, thanks to Hetmyer's attacking 93 off 92 balls. Bangladesh registered their first ever Test series win over Windies at home and it truly was a historic one.
