Kemar Roach does the job for West Indies – Kemar Roach was the architect of the West Indies win as he scalped seven wickets in the match, including a fifer in the second innings. The West paceman was well supported by his other colleagues in the first innings as they bundled out Bangladesh for just 103.

The task was well in the sight for the hosts as they scored the required total on Day 4 of the match. While Bangladesh did show resilience in the second innings by scoring 245 runs, they couldn’t prevent the ultimate embarrassment at the hands of the Caribbeans.
