Wonderful work from the West Indies bowling attack to complete the rout! It started off with Badree dismissing the dangerous Tamim, then those dual strikes from Santokie pulled the rug from Bangladesh's feet.. It was a downward spiral for the home side. Badree ended up with his best figures, Santokie picked up three, Narine was unplayable. Good win for the defending champions after the setback in the first game.

Dwayne Smith, who is the Man of the Match, says, "We have a good bowling attack, so it was important to put the runs on the board. Well done to our bowlers and our fielders. we had a very bad first game so we went and spent time in the nets to work hard on our mistakes. I am glad to see that Santokie performed well and hope he goes from strength to strength."

Darren Sammy says, "When you play cricket, the team that plays better wins. Much better game for us. Chris and Smithy played well, then our bowlers bowled fantastically well. We started off really well, Smith had to really graft. So he gave us the platform. The bowlers then bowled well. It is important that we won and it also boosted our NRR. Chris, this innings, he didnt score at the strike rate which we are used to, but the fact that he was there was important. The Bangladeshi captain brought Shakib very late because of him. In the next couple of games, i have no doubt he will get to his zone. I am not worried about him. The conditions are for slower bowling. Santokie and Badree started off very well. It is hard to leave someone like Ravi Rampaul out, but you saw what Santokie did. it is good to have that sort of bench strength."

Mushfiqur Rahim says, "It was a disappointing effort - first with our fielding, because we gave away a lot of cheap runs. To chase 170 you need a good start, but we lost wickets early and it is difficult from there on. Our bowling was good, but our fielding let down as we gave away 20 extra runs.. we need bit better shot selection. If you lose three early wickets, you are on a back foot. It hurts (the recent losses) but the credit should also go the opposition players."

That is the end of our coverage on ball-ball-ball, but plenty of analysis to come through. Join us tomorrow.. Ciao ciao

Jon: "@Abhishek: I don't think it's fair to judge the Full Members or the Associates based on T20 results. It's an entertaining format, but it's the one most likely to produce unrealistic results. Netherlands for instance are not as bad as they were against SL, but their performance against Ireland would have been miraculous for any side."

Rishi: "Cant help thinking the problem for Bangladesh is they have been burdened with the expectations of a top tier cricketing team without the performances to show for it. Players just dont seem to be enjoying what they are doing. I wonder if Musfiqur's constant press tirades against his own players weighs them down too"

Lendl Simmons is the third player to be stumped without facing a ball in T20Is. The other two are from West Indies as well - Pollard and Deonarine

  • Bleak times for the Bangladesh fan

    They have been loyal even during the side's more abject failures. And their faith is being tested some more

  • The high-risk game

    West Indies invest heavily on the Chris Gayle method in T20s, but the day it fails, it could leave the team in a spot of bother

  • Gayle stalls, Simmons walks

    ESPNcricinfo presents the plays of the day from the Group 2 match between Bangladesh and West Indies

  • Smith, Badree send Bangladesh crashing

    Dwayne Smith's rapid half-century led West Indies to a total that proved well beyond Bangladesh's reach, with Samuel Badree leading the defence with figures of 4-15

  • 'We are not playing with a free mind' - Mushfiqur

    Mushfiqur Rahim has said that Bangladesh are playing under the pressure of maintaining their spots in the team, and this mindset has made it difficult for the team to compete in T20 matches
