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.
