HEADLINE: Mehidy 12-for scripts record Bangladesh win 2018-12-02 06:31:36 

Nearly five months after being beaten 2-0 in a pace-dominated series in the West Indies, Bangladesh served up revenge on a spinning platter to the same opponents with an innings-and-184-run win in the Dhaka Test to complete a 2-0 series win. The victory was their first innings win in Test cricket. Mehidy Hasan Miraz underscored the supremacy of spinners with his match figures of 12 for 117, surpassing his own record for the best bowling figures for Bangladesh.

Mehidy took nine wickets on the third day, the most by a Bangladesh bowler on a single day, and all 40 West Indies wickets fell to the Bangladesh spinners, a first for a bowling side in a two-Test series.

Mehidy completed his second five-for in the game by dismissing Jomel Warrican caught and bowled for a duck, which was West Indies' ninth, before Taijul Islam took the wicket of Shermon Lewis to complete the win, after the No. 11 had added 42 runs for the tenth wicket with Kemar Roach.

Amid innings totals of 111 and 213, Shimron Hetmyer was the only West Indies batsman to stand out, striking nine sixes and a four in his 93 off 92 balls. His tally of sixes was the most by a batsman in Tests against Bangladesh, surpassing Kumar Sangakkara's eight sixes in Chittagong in 2014.

In reply to Our players cannot bat pace bowling and they can't bat spin. Our spinners, especially Bishoo cannot get test batsmen out even on a spinners wicket, and when he gets wickets he gives up a lo of runs. West Indies cricket needs an overhaul. First we need a west Indian head coach and Cortney Walsh is the best, especially with the number of young quicks that are coming up. Then the head coach should pick his chief selector and entire coaching staff instead of the board. The idea of the board picking everybody is outdated and is definitely not working for us because their seems to be no vision and definitely no continuity.
