West Indies win by 17 runs to sweep Test series against Bangladesh

Bangladesh’s batting once again imploded on a day that saw 17 wickets go down as Rahkeem Cornwall took four scalps to fire the inexperienced West Indies to a slim 17-run win in Dhaka and sweep the Test series 2-0.

The Tigers surrendered a good start to their 231-run chase, losing all their wickets in a day to crumble to defeat on the fourth day at Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Sunday, reports bdnews24.com.

While Cornwall bagged 4 for 105, the Caribbean also found an unlikely hero in Kraigg Brathwaite (3-25) with Jomel Warrican supporting the duo with figures of 3-47.

The match was played almost 35 minutes past the scheduled time of closing when Warrican, who like Cornwall exploited sharp turn and bounce off the track, spun in a length ball which Mehidy Hasan Miraz (31) edged to brilliant low catch to Cornwall, sparking celebrations among the West Indies camp who sealed their first overseas series win since 2017.
