That's it from us for tonight. On behalf of the crew at ESPNcricinfo, this is Nitin Sundar signing off. Cheers.

Rahim: "After winning the toss we were expecting more from the wicket. The bowlers didn't bowl too well and there were some hiccups in our fielding as well. Full credit to WI for the way they played. We have been practising for the last one month with the new rules. There was no turn in the wicket so our spinners found it tough. We need to find some way of bowling with the two new balls."

Simmons, as expected, is Man of the Match for his fine century. That gives West Indies a 1-0 lead in the three-game series. Bangladesh will need some intent if they want to come back in this series. It will be all too easy for West Indies if the hosts look to play for stumps when they are chasing.
