Second Test, Dhaka
| | Day Two | Day Three | Day Four

Devendra Bishoo bowled the West Indies to a first overseas series win since 2003 as they beat Bangladesh by 229 runs in the second and final Test in Dhaka.

Bishoo returned figures of five for 90 - his maiden five-wicket haul - as Bangladesh were dismissed for 278, losing their last six wickets for just 22 runs in a disappointing collapse.

They began the day on 164 for three having been set 508 to win and had Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim at the crease. Tamim added just one to his overnight score of 82 before he was caught by Darren Sammy as Bishoo grabbed his first wicket but an 88-run partnership then followed between Rahim (69) and Shakib Al Hasan (55).

When that was broken by Sammy, who had Shakib caught by Shivnarine Chanderpaul, the floodgates opened and Bangladesh could no longer hold the West Indies back.

Rahim was bowled by Bishoo, who followed that up by trapping both Naeem Islam and Nasir Hossain in front for three runs apiece and then completing his five-wicket haul when Suhrawadi Shuvo was caught by Sammy without scoring.

It was then left to fast bowler Kemar Roach to complete the rout by bowling Rubel Hossain for seven.

Kirk Edwards was named as the man of the match after he scored 86 in the West Indian first innings of 355 and 86 in their second innings of 383 for five declared, in which Darren Bravo made a magnificent 195.

Bangladesh were bowled out cheaply for 231 in their first innings, Fidel Edwards taking five wickets.

The opening match in the series was drawn in Chittagong.
