Bangladesh was no match for the West Indies as they suffered a 166-run defeat in the second Test at Sabina Park, Jamaica last week inside three days.

In the first Test in Antigua the Asian team was routed for their lowest-ever Test score (43) in their first innings, losing the match by an innings and 219 runs in the two-Test series.

West Indies pacer Jason Holder destroyed Bangladesh with his maiden 10-wicket haul in Tests and the best figure by a West Indies captain in the region, as they recorded their first home series in four years.

Holder was at the forefront claiming 6 for 59 — his third five-wicket haul in the last six innings — to finish with career best match figures of 11 for 103 and 16 wickets in the series.

He was named Man-of-the-Match and Man-of-the-Series.

Set an improbable task of making 335 for victory, Bangladesh never came to grips with the West Indies pace attack.

Only all-rounder Shakib-Al-Hassan top scored with 54, opener Liton Das struck a run-a-ball for his 33 and former captain Mushifiqur Rahim chipped in with 31.

Holder got the prize-wicket of Shakib, uprooting his stumps, and he wrapped up the innings, claiming the last two wickets in his next over.

Earlier, the Windies batting had flopped as Shakib claimed 6 for 33 with his left-arm spin.

Roston Chase (32) was the only batsman to pass 20 as the hosts, resuming on 19 for 1 wicket, lost their 9 wickets for 110 runs. Windies last four wickets tumbled for a mere 21 runs.

Scores: West Indies first innings 354 and 168: Bangladesh 149 and 168.
