Mehidy Hasan Miraz produced the best bowling performance ever by a Bangladesh bowler to bowl his side to victory in the second Test and claim a historic series win over the West Indies.
Mehidy tore through the Windies’ middle order on his way to grabbing seven wickets in the first innings and then returned to wreak more havoc, snaring five more wickets in the second innings, to finish with the remarkable figures of 12 for 117.
His showing allowed the hosts to complete a memorable and momentous innings and 184-run win over the West Indies, their largest ever margin of victory in a Test match.
So dominant were Bangladesh’s spinners in this two-match series that they accounted for all 40 West Indies wickets to fall.
It was the first time Bangladesh had defeated the West Indies on home soil and only their fourth Test series win in history and first since 2014.
