So, that concludes the Test season in the Windies calendar this year. They prepared result-oriented pitches and have played some exceptionally positive cricket. The lethal fast bowling of Shannon Gabriel at times reminded us of the their golden generation. They couldn't end the series against Sri Lanka on a high but made up for it against Bangladesh. Focus shifts to white ball cricket now, join us then. Until next time, this is Varun Dixit signing off on behalf of Rishi Roy and Naga.
Jason Holder| MoM, MoS, and winning skipper: We played as a team. Different players put their hands up in different situations. I thought Bangladesh pushed us in the series but we were the better side. I asked the guys to give it everything. I thought if I will do well, the guys will be able to follow. There will be tough days in cricket and tough days in life; we will have to cope with it and move on. I want to give special credit to Corey Collymore, our bowling coach and Stuart Law our head coach and the entire support staff has been very good. We still have few areas of concern. We need to score some more runs and top-order needs to come to the party more often. In bowling we need to sort out the no-ball issue. We are heading in the right direction and hopefully, with more hard work, we will do well in the future too.
Shakib Al Hasan| losing captain: It was very tough. I was expecting it will be tough but not this tough. There are so many areas we need to sit down and talk about. It was a very disappointing series. We expected to show a better performance but that did not happen. We will move to the white-ball cricket now and we have been doing well in the white-ball cricket. I don't know about the team but I believed that we can come come back in the series. The credit goes to the Windies. We were not good enough on the park. This is a big issue. We have been playing Test cricket for the last 18-19 years and we haven't done well away from the home and that is one area we really want to improve upon.
17:14 Local Time, 22:14 GMT, 03:44 IST: A comprehensive 166-run victory for Windies. Handshakes all around. Skipper Holder and his troops have bright smiles on their faces as they make their way back into the dressing room. They deserve every bit of it. Kraigg Brathwaite started the show for them on the first morning as his ton in the first innings got them to 354. Bangladesh displayed some promise with the bat but Tamim and Shakib failed to convert their starts and they were dismissed for a dismal 149. They even failed to clear the follow-on mark but Windies were kind enough not to enforce it. Bangladesh bowled much better in the second innings, especially Shakib, whose figures of 6-33 restricted Windies to a meagre 129 in their second innings and gave Bangladesh a chance to level the series. However, their fortunes with the bat did not change. In reply, again, none of the batsmen portrayed the desired composure and Jason Holder was too hot to handle for them. Time for the presentations.

Tea, day 3: Bangladesh had a decent session till the final ball but that delivery from Chase changed the equation. What an inspired move from Holder to bring on Chase and he delivered. Earlier in the session, Bangladesh cleaned up the tail of the Windies in a canter and gave themselves a chance to level this series. The pitch isn't unplayable at the moment and Bangladesh want Shakib and Mushfiqur Rahim, their best two batsmen to show some fight in this run-chase. For Windies, they need to hit their areas consistently and they would believe that if they manage to do that, they will whitewash the visitors 2-0. Join us for the final session.
Roston Chase to Mominul, THAT'S OUT!! Lbw!!
Review time: Umpire thought for a long time and then eventually raised his finger. Mominul challenges the decision. There is not bat involved, impact is in line and and it is smashing the stumps. It shows three reds and Mominul is out of here.
