Sports Desk: Bangladesh has whitewashed West Indies in two-match Test series. Tigers won by an innings and 184 runs in the second and final Test against visiting West Indies at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium at Mirpur on Sunday.
Off-spinner Mehedi Hasan Miraz stole the show with a brilliant 12-wicket haul - seven in the first innings and five in the second.

Captain Shakib al Hasan (205), former spinner Mohammad Rafique (100) and left-arm spinner Taijul Islam (97) are ahead of Miraz in that list.
