Cornwall man of the match

The West Indies beat Bangladesh by seventeen runs in a trilling second Test in Mirpur, to complete a 2-0 series victory. Chasing 231 to draw the series, Bangladesh slipped from 101-3 to 231 all out on the fourth evening.  

Rakeem ‘Jimbo’ Cornwall took 4-174 in the match, and caught Mehedi Hasan at slip for the final wicket to end a promising stand of twenty-five. All Bangladesh wickets fell to spin, with Kraig Brathwaite claiming 3-25 and Jomel Warrican 3-47. 

Brathwaite was leading an understrength West Indies side, missing ten players—including captain Jason Holder—who opted out of the tour because of coronavirus concerns.

West Indies: 409 (Da Silva 92, Bonner 90, Alzarri 82) and 117) 

Bangladesh: 296 (Liton 71, Cornwall 5-74) and 213 (Tamim 50, Cornwall 4-105) 

West Indies win by 17 runs.
