Commentary

Finally, some relief for the hosts on what's been a disappointing tour. However, it's not a clean sweep for Banglladesh, and West Indies can take some pride in challenging them hard in some of the games and winning this one. Devon Smith and Travis Dowlin were the stars of the chase today, and despite the quick wickets at the end the home team had the game well in control. We'll get you the details from the presentation in just a bit.

Shakib: "We didn't bat well, especially the top order. We didn't play smart cricket. We didn't execute the gameplan well. If you have four run-outs, it's going to be difficult. We played very good cricket for the last one month, and we are looking forward to the Zimbabwe tour. The people and the beaches have been great here."

Reifer: "The guys fielded very well. You've got to be sharp in the field in this form of the game. I told the guys to look forward to the future, and keeping improving while playing hard for West Indies. It was one win we needed to get into winning ways. Travis had a good series. Dave Bernard, Roach and Sammy too. We have a lot of positives to take from this tour."

Sammy is the Man of the Match

Sammy: "I've been working hard on my game. I missed the ODI series against India, and the coaches told me what i had to do. I stuck to the basics and it paid off. I made a conscious effort to go out there and do what the team needs. I have played for West Indies before but really didn't contribute to the bat, but did so now. I've been practicing with the bowling machine and it has really helped."

That's all we have from here folks. Hope you enjoyed our coverage for the entire tour. Until the next time, it's goodbye from all of us here at Cricinfo.
