Scorecard
West Indies take a 1-0 lead in this two-match Test series. The second Test begins on 11 February in Dhaka. Join us for the coverage of that match. For now, this is Prakhar Sachdeo and giving me company was Maanas Upadhyay, and together we, on the behalf of Team Sportskeeda, bid adieu! 
A day that now been etched in the annals of West Indies Test history. For four of the five days of the Test, Bangladesh dominated the proceedings, but West Indies won the final day, the day which counted the most.

Let us take you back a bit. 

The match started with Shadman Islam getting a fifty. Lower down the order Mehidy Hasan got a hundred as Bangladesh finished with a total of 430 in their first inning. Jome Warrican impressed with the ball as he picked four wickets. In reply, the West Indies skipper played a handy 76. He was well supported by Jermaine Blackwood who made 68. But a stunning collapse meant that West Indies were bowled out on just 259. Mehidy Hasan, riding on the back of a century, picked four wickets and he was supported by Taijul Islam and Nayeem Hasan. The two spinners picked two wickets each. 

Mominul Haque's hundred and Liton Das' fifty took Bangladesh to 223 with a lead of 394. It was then that Haque felt that a target of 395 should be enough. 

But it was not to be as a stunning double-hundred from Kyler Mayers and a patient 86 from Nkrumah Bonner scripted a historic win for West Indies. 
Kraigg Brathwaite: I believe in this team from Day 1. After day four, we got some momentum at the end of Day 4. The game was still open. We had plans in place. I was happy to score but I should have gone to get a big score. Joshua and Jermaine batted well. There was a team effort. Kemar and Gabriel bowled well. We have to keep working as a team. I won't say this is a depleted side. We had plans in place for this match. We had to execute well on Day 5 and managed to do so which is good.
Kyle Mayers: I am always a positive person. I believe in my abilities. We never gave up. The skipper and the coach kept us going. Shanon played well. It is a great feeling to play Test cricket and then go on for the win and also get the double-hundred. It is a really special feeling. I am thankful to my coaches, teammates, captain and my family back home. I try to inspire all the youngsters and this double-hundred will surely do so. 
Kyle Mayers in the Player of the Match
Mominul Haque: I think the boys played really well. Our bowlers did not bowl in the right areas. I thought before the last day the wicket would spin but we did not take our chances. A few positive things. We played well as a team. We batted well. Mehidy Hasan batted well. It was very difficult to play after almost one year in the first inning. But I am now feeling fit now and hopefully can continue.
Presentation ceremony coming your way shortly! 
The Test teams all of a sudden have found the guts to go after big totals in the fourth inning. Only a few weeks ago, India did it in Brisbane and now West Indies have done the unthinkable in Chattogram. 
RECORD ALERT! This is the highest successful chase in Asia and the second highest record chase for West Indies. 
Great, historic, memorable, thrilling, stunning, beautiful, epic. The words fall short to describe this run chase from West Indies. Plenty of records fell on the feet of Kyle Mayers the star of this run chase. The day started on a sorry note for the West Indies as the news of the loss of former Barbados and West Indies player Ezra Moseley came in. But another player from Barbados decided to put the sorrow behind him and make the day a memorable one for West Indies. A day that West Indies will remember for many years to come. 
And no better man than Kyle Mayers to hit the winning run for West Indies and complete the chase!
127.3 Nayeem Hasan to Kyle Mayers, WEST INDIES WIN! Dances down the track, ends up yorking himself as Nayeem follows him. Drills that towards mid-wicket and the batsmen scamper across for a quick single. The dugout erupts as the batsmen complete the run! What a knock by Kyle Mayers and what a win for the visitors!
127.2 Nayeem Hasan to Kyle Mayers, no run, length ball outside off, Mayers rocks back and drives that with a cross bat but once again straight to the fielder at extra cover. 
127.1 Nayeem Hasan to Kyle Mayers, no run, length ball on the off stump spinning away, slapped straight to the fielder at extra cover. 
Just a run needed to win. Mayers should get the one ellusive run in the upcoming over and end the drama! 
Over: 127 | Summary: 1 0 0 0 W 0 Bowler: Mehidy Hasan Score: 0/0
126.6 Mehidy Hasan to Rakheem Cornwall, no run, full ball on the off stump, Cornwall leans in and works that towards mid-wicket. 
West Indies are almost there, but still not there! 
Rahkeem Cornwall, RHB, walks out to bat. 
126.5 Mehidy Hasan to Kemar Roach, OUT! CAUGHT! Length ball on the middle stump spinning in, gets a faint inside edge that goes onto hit the pads. Lobs up in the air subsequently and the fielder at leg slip pouches that! The umpire raises his finger and Roach does not bother reviewing it.
