Summary

  • NORTH SOUND – West Indies crushed Bangladesh by an innings and 219 runs in just seven sessions, to record their fifth-largest Test victory ever and grab an all-important 1-0 lead in the two-match series here, on Friday.
  • The hosts needed just over 1-3/4 hours on the third day at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground to claim the remaining four wickets and send Bangladesh tumbling to 144 all out in their second innings.
  • West Indies wasted little time in getting the breakthrough when Holder removed Mahmudullah (15) with his first legal ball but second delivery of the day, squaring up the batsman and having him caught at third slip by Roston Chase.
  • Resuming on seven, he took a couple of boundaries off the second over from Gabriel before ripping into the same bowler a few overs later, with fours on either side of the wicket before clearing the ropes at long off in an over which leaked 17 runs.
  • Seamer Kemar Roach, who did not bowl in the second innings, was adjudged Man Of The Match for his five wickets for eight runs which sent Bangladesh crumbling to a record-low Test score of 43 in the first innings.
