The Kraigg Brathwaite-led West Indies beat Bangladesh by 17 runs in the second Test at Dhaka’s Shere Bangla National Stadium to complete a 2-0 series sweep.

Off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall picked up 4 wickets for 105 as the visitors bundled out Bangladesh for 213 in their second innings on the penultimate day to register a thrilling win. The Men in Marron made 409 and 117 runs in their two innings while Mominul Haque’s Bangladesh managed to put 296 runs on the board in the first innings.

The West Indies had won the first Test by three wickets.

“Coming here without some players, with the protocols and so on — very thankful to God for the opportunity to captain West Indies,” said the winning captain Brathwaite.

“Boys stuck to their plans, they were very disciplined.

“Cricket means everything to us. People will be proud. People wrote us off but we kept it simple, enjoyed it, and we proved them wrong,” he added.
