Commentary

The entire cast and crew from Bangladesh rush out to greet their captain. It still confounds me as to why he was never considered for an IPL contract. Is the rest of the world watching? They better.

The players walk out, draped in the Bangladesh flag and Shakib has one over him too. He didn't just warm the seat for Mashrafe Mortaza, he set it on fire. His innings came off just 97 balls, that too against Darren Sammy who was breathing fire. We shouldn't forget the contribution from Raqibul who started the rebuilding phase. Occupying the crease was the prime motive of the pair and that helped get them in position to seal the win.

So Bangladesh have done what was expected of them. They wouldn't have settled for anything less. Whether the wins were convincing enough is a discussion for another day and perhaps another forum. For the moment, let them toast the success. It's not their fault that the opposition was not world class.

Stay with us for the presentation.

Reifer: "We had a good opportunity to win the game. We were 60-65 runs short. Our guys tried really hard.The Bangladesh spinners capitalised better."

Shakib: "This is the best day for Bangladesh cricket. The guys have been supporting me very well so I don't feel any pressure. Raqibul played a gem of an innings. I thought attack was the best form of defense. The hospitality in the West Indies has been very good."

Shakib is also the Man of the Match. He gets a Blackberry.

Shakib is also the Man of the Series. That's two Blackberrys! Shakib returns to the podium for the umpteenth time, now to collect the series trophy. They might as well name the series after him.

Thanks for your company and the mails. On behalf of Sajan Nair, this is Kanishkaa signing off. It's goodbye for now.

Roach to Shakib Al Hasan, SIX runs, he seals it with a six! The captain leads the way, he leans forward to a full delivery and carts him over long-on, the ball was in the air for a long time but well clear of any white shirt, it was headed one way and Shakib seals the 2-0 win in the most emphatic manner
