Apart from a clinical bowling effort, Bangladesh proved to be equally good with the bat, as they mustered 508 in the first innings of the match. That meant Bangladesh, for the first time, went into a test without a frontline pace bowler.

Bangladesh record their biggest ever victory in Test cricket as they thrashed West Indies by an innings and 184 runs in the second match at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur oj Sunday.

Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan, Taijul Islam and Nayeem Hasan accounted for all 40 wickets, a record for a Test series in Bangladesh.

Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan Miraz bowled through the West Indies top order to compound a hard day for the visitors.

Mahmudullah Riyad was the top contributor for the hosts with the bat scoring a career best 136. Shakib (80) and Liton Das (54) too, chipped in with vital runs.

"To be honest I demanded a lot in this series", said Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan.

Shadman received some support from Soumya Sarkar (19), Mominul Haque (29) and Mohammad Mithun (29) before he was dismissed.

Windies then slipped to 46-4 by lunch following a nine-wicket session, before Hetmyer provided fireworks during a blistering 92-ball knock which contained nine sixes and a solitary four - three of the 21-year-old's maximums coming in one Shakib Al Hasan over.
