Right then! Bangladesh cricket is back with a bang as they sealed the first series comprehensively after lockdown. Now the attention shifts to the Test matches, which will be starting next month. Until then, this is Pragadeesh on behalf of my fellow texpert Prashanth Satish signing off for now. 
Tamim Iqbal: It was an amazing series and the effort the boys put up is really good.  It's not great to be in the bubble as we are close to the family but we couldn't meet them. There are few areas we can improve on and one of the top 5 should've gotten a hundred today. There were times we didn't get fast bowlers despite looking everywhere but now I am so happy with the setup and the healthy competition for the spots
Shakib: A lot of credit goes to the coaching staff as they helped me a lot. Yes, I always knew once the series goes on I feel comfortable. Both Spinners and fast bowlers complement each other and that's why we've been bowling really well. My groin doesn't feel good and we will access after 24 hours.
Shakib Al Hasan is the Player of the Series
Rahim: Lot of credit goes to the bowlers. I didn't get a chance to bat. All missed International cricket in the last 12 months and it's good to come back strong. We are looking forward to the test match series and it's going to be a different ball game. We need to perform well in the Test series, they have a very good experienced side.
Mushfiqur Rahim is the Player of the Match
Jason Mohammed: The spinners were challenging for us in the first two games. We can rectify the errors with the full strength line up, and I am confident we are going to put some runs on the board once they are back. There are a few positives. Alzzari did well at the top and at the death despite not picking up wickets.
What a disappointing end to the tour for the visitors. Before coming into the series, the Caribbean team had only five players who had the International experience under their belt and all focus was on the youngsters. But they failed to capitalise on the opportunities provided to them, and as a result, West Indies have been thoroughly outplayed by the hosts. 


Chasing a huge total of 298 in this match, Sunil Ambris hammered Saifuddin Ahmed over mid-off for a boundary in the first over. But Mustafizur Rahman bossed the show in the powerplay with some sensational swing bowling. He dismissed Kjorn Ottley with a beautiful outswinger before dismissing Sunil Ambris by getting the ball into the right-hander. After being introduced into the attack early on, Mehidy Hasan put a lot of pressure on the dangerous Kyle Mayers and he eventually got him out cheaply when the left-hander missed the line of the ball and was trapped in front of the wickets. After 47-3, there was a small partnership building between Bonner and Jason Mohammed but that wasn't worrying Bangladesh at all. Saifuddin came back and it turned out to be an excellent second spell for him. He dismissed Jason Mohammed and Bonner with two impressive deliveries. The only positive for West Indies is Rovmen Powell as he started the innings in an aggressive approach but he wasn't getting any support from the other end. Powell and Reifer were going good before the former fell three runs short of his half-century. In the end, West Indies got all out for 177 runs, failing to reach a 200-run mark for the third time in the series. To add to their woes, none of the batsmen has scored a half-century in this bilateral series.

But all credit goes to Bangladesh as they were outstanding in all departments from the first game. Their fast bowling has been impeccable throughout the series, and there is no doubt there will be a lot of bright prospects like Hasan Mahmud and Mohammed Saifuddin to look out for in the future. The only thing they can work on is their ground fielding as they were sloppy at times.
West Indies are bowled out for 177 runs and Bangladesh emphatically seal the series 3-0. This is only the second time the Tigers complete clean sweep against the Windies in the bilateral series
44.2 Taskin Ahmed to Raymon Reifer, OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Bangladesh win by 120 runs, short ball that gets big on Reifer and he is late on the pull and gets it off the bottom of the bat and Taskin completes a simple catch to close things out
44.1 Taskin Ahmed to Raymon Reifer, short of a length just outside the off-stump and Reifer stands tall and drops it into the ground. Steep bounce at good pace and well played.
Taskin Ahmed replaces Soumya Sarkar
What a sensational take from Rahim. That was dipping but Rahim dives to his left and pouches it beautifully.
Over: 44 | Summary: 1W 1 0 W 1 1 Bowler: Mohammad Saifuddin Score: 176/9
43.6 Mohammad Saifuddin to Raymon Reifer, full-length ball outside the off-stump and Reifer drives this one to covers for a single to end the over
43.5 Mohammad Saifuddin to Keon Harding, full and swinging in and Keon gets his bat down in time somehow to play that one away to fine-leg for a single and he is off the mark.
Keon Harding, Right Handed Bat, comes to the crease
43.4 Mohammad Saifuddin to Akeal Hosein, EDGED! Length ball outside the off-stump and Akeal has a poke at it and Mushfiqur looks like he has taken this one but the umpires want to check if it has carried.

Soft signal is out. The ball has clearly carried as shown on replays. He has to depart!
43.3 Mohammad Saifuddin to Akeal Hosein, short of a good-length on stump line and Akeal is on his back foot as he defends this one back to the bowler
43.2 Mohammad Saifuddin to Raymon Reifer, good-length ball on off-stump and Reifer drops it into the off side for a quick single this time. Akeal will be on strike for the first time!
