West Indies sweep Test series

West Indies beat Bangladesh by 10 wickets in the second Test at Daren Sammy Stadium on Monday.  With this, the hosts took a one-sided series 2-0.

Bangladesh's 100th Test loss came after it scored 234 and 186 and West Indies 408 and 13 not out.

Both Tests were won well inside four days. A wet field washed out the first two sessions on Monday, but when Bangladesh resumed on 132-6, needing 42 more runs to make West Indies bat again, play lasted less than 12 overs.

Bangladesh's second innings extended nine more overs and 54 more runs before it was all over on 186. Nurul Hasan was stranded on 60 not out from 50 balls.

Needing 13 runs to win, West Indies openers John Campbell and captain Kraigg Brathwaite took 17 balls.

When the day's play got underway, Mehidy Hasan Miraz got off with a mark with a boundary then was out next ball trying to block an Alzarri Joseph bouncer and edging behind.

Jayden Seales bagged in the one over Ebadot Hossain and Shoriful Islam for ducks.

Seales, Joseph and Kemar Roach each took three wickets.
