The Bangladesh players are now posing with the trophy. They are a happy bunch and want to savor this moment of accomplishment. It's also time for us to sign off. We look forward to your company for the first ODI on 9th December at 1400 local (0800 GMT). Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!

Bangladesh's skipper, Shakib Al Hasan is chosen for the Player of the Series award. Says that this is something he and the coaching staff want from the team. He is thrilled with the overall team effort. Points that every time the batsmen who got in tried to make it count. Praises all the spinners for the way they bowled in this Test match and gives a special mention to Mehidy Hasan. Lauds Naeem Hasan and Shadman Islam as well for showing good composure and he feels that they can do well in the international arena. Mentions that he cannot ask more than this from his team but quickly says that there is always room for improvement. On his own performance, Shakib admits that he was a bit rusty in the first Test as he trained for only 2-3 sessions and this match was much more comfortable. Reckons he will be at his best in the ODI series.

Player of the Match, Mehidy Hasan is smiling and says that he is delighted to get this award after a long time. States that he received good support from the other end from Shakib and Taijul. He is really happy with the win. Adds that he likes batting and goes on to say that their batsmen set the tone by posting 500-plus on the board which made the job easier for the bowlers.

Windies' skipper Kraigg Brathwaite says that his bowlers bowled well in this series and that's one of the few positives for them. Praises the batting of Hetmyer and Dowrich (first innings) as well but admits that other batsmen need to show more application. Feels that they didn't get enough partnerships going. States that Test cricket is mentally tough and they have a few FC matches to go before facing England. Mentions that to stay positive is the key and hopes to get better in the ODIs.

Everything went according to the plan for Bangladesh. They won an important toss and aimed to bat once by posting a big total. Debutant Shadman Islam, Mahmudullah and Shakib Al Hasan played important roles in taking them to a total over 500. The Windies bowlers, especially the spinners, failed to deliver on a helpful surface and this was also one of the prime reasons for this embarrassing loss for the tourists. Just for the record, this is Bangladesh's first ever Test series win over Windies at home and it truly is a historic one.

It was a pretty dismal show by Windies. They didn't benefit much from the Test series in India. Their batsmen lacked the required skill and technique to play spinners and were exposed. Application and temperament, two key characteristics to succeed in Test cricket were also missing. Shimron Hetmyer did show his ability with the bat as he made an attacking 93 while the last pair also sent a message to the top order on how to apply in tough conditions.

All over in the blink of an eye! Bangladesh have beaten Windies comprehensively to take the Test series 2-0! Dominance, that's the word to describe their performance. Their spinners were relentless and Mehidy Hasan was ruthless. He bagged a 12-wicket haul, his personal best in Tests and starred the day where 15 wickets fell.

T Islam to Lewis, OUT! BANGLADESH WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 184 RUNS! A nicely tossed up delivery, landing around leg and straightening from there. Lewis tries to flick but misses and is rapped on the pads. They appeal and the umpire nods before raising his finger. The number 11 reviews it but the Ball Tracker shows three reds. Impact in line and it's hitting middle and leg. Bangladesh can continue with their celebration. Their first ever win by an innings! Historic day.
