2

West Indies beat Bangladesh by 17 runs in a thrilling second Test in Mirpur to complete a 2-0 series victory.

Chasing 231 to draw the series, Bangladesh slipped from 101-3 to 213 all out on the fourth evening.

Rahkeem Cornwall took 4-105 – for 9-174 in the match – and caught Mehedi Hasan at slip for the final wicket to end a stand of 25 which gave the hosts hope.

All ten Bangladesh wickets fell to spin, with Kraigg Brathwaite claiming 3-25 and Jomel Warrican 3-47.

Brathwaite was leading an understrength West Indies side missing 10 players – including captain Jason Holder – who opted out of the tour because of coronavirus concerns.

West Indies chased 395 – the fifth highest successful pursuit in Test history – to win a remarkable first Test thanks to debutant Kyle Mayers’ unbeaten 210. (BBC)

  1. It is always a great feeling to be victorious over one’s opponent…. However, it does not mean that the team is firing well on all cylinders… Some wins do come about due to the errors of the opposing team or the limited strength the team has…
    As a result, I do hope that the WI team will not get carried away from that win…. Yes, congrats to the guys but, alot of work still needs to be done….

  2. As a true west indian I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the coatch and the team on their victorious win even thou we all west indies know that there is room for improvement. I just wish that the secelectors will retain the same players to play against sri lanka in next month series.
