- The away side did fight back in the second innings with the ball but they were already a long way behind in the game. The skipper, Shakib Al Hasan weaved his magic with the ball, taking a 6-fer, giving a glimmer of hope to his side. Still, it was an uphill task for the tourists as they needed to chase 335. There was no change in the script as the Windies once again worked their way with the ball, not giving Bangladesh any sniff. Jason Holder hogged the limelight, by taking 11 wickets in the game to shut down the game.
- In reply, Bangladesh were insipid with the bat. There were no substantial contributions as they kept on losing wickets in a heap. Holder took a fifer to cause the downfall while Gabriel and the debutant, Paul took two apiece. That meant that the tourists ended up conceding a big lead of 205.
- After being put into bat, the hosts got off to a cautious start. Kraigg Brathwaite was the one who held fort and stroked a fine ton. He got good support from Shimron Hetmyer, who scored a half century. For the visitors, Mehidy Hasan was the star as he took a five-wicket haul and supported well by Abu Jayed who picked 3 wickets.
- The Windies have beaten Bangladesh black and blue to take the series 2-0. It has been a really good performance from them and they are the deserved winners. After setting a big target of 335 on a two-paced track, their bowlers were on the money once again. Holder was the standout performer, as he made the ball talk at will and took a 6-fer, taking 11 wickets overall in the game. There was no resistance apart from the 59-run stand between Shakib and Rahim.
- 41.6 OUT! Bowled 'em! Holder finishes off in style, taking a 6-fer in this innings. He has his hands aloft, a terrific performance from the home team. Attacks the stumps with a full ball, Jayed tries to turn it across but the ball swings back in to hit the stumps. Customary handshakes all around. WINDIES WIN BY 166 RUNS, TAKING THE SERIES 2-0.

- 41.1 OUT! Can't get more adjacent than that! Holder bags a 10-fer to his name and he has a big smile on his face. He has been belligerent all through and has got the rewards as well. He hurls in a fuller length ball around off and it seams back in sharply to go past the defense of Islam to ping him on the back pad. As soon as Jason rises up in his appeal, the dreaded finger of the umpire goes up.
- 40.6 Full and wide outside off, Islam goes after it but misses. 168/8
