Bangladesh win after routing West Indies for 61

The threat of rain loomed over gloomy Chittagong but the weather stayed clear enough for Bangladesh to demolish West Indies for their second-lowest total in one-day internationals

A suitably sombre Sammy takes away the ODI series trophy. The Test series begins in three days, and he will be concerned about his side's chances in the first Test at the same venue. Do join us for the action on Oct 21, but in the meantime there are four other bilateral series in progress, so you'd do well to keep us bookmarked on your browser. On behalf of the rest of the ESPNcricinfo gang, this is Nitin Sundar signing off. Cheers!

Presentation time, then.

Darren Sammy: "We took our foot off the gas (he pronounces it 'gaas') today. Congratulations to us for winning this series, it is a good feeling, but today shows that you can never take your opponents lightly. It will be a keenly contested Test series. We have seen what Bangladesh can do at home, and we hope to come back and start that series on a high."

Marlon Samuels is Man of the Series despite failing today.

Shakib Al Hasan is the Man of the Match for his four-for. "I always enjoy bowling here," he says. "All our spinners did well, after the new balls got us the breakthrough. We just needed to bat well and stick to our plans after that."

Mushfiqur Rahim: "There was nothing to lose today, and the boys came out and showed character. This is a big lift before the Test series. We wanted to bowl after winning the toss, the pacemen bowled well and were backed up by the spinners. Hopefully we will keep winning in Chittagong."

"Probably the greatest win by Bangladesh and there could not have been a more perfect time than this." Hmm, I'd say the previous game would have been a better time, Sadique.

"Does this prove wives are always wrong?" Well played, Ravi!

Samuels to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, Bangladesh beat the rain, and in the process humble the Windies. Tamim works a full toss off the pads through midwicket for a single that gives Bangladesh one of their most famous wins, regardless of this being a dead rubber. I wonder if there will be any stone-throwing at buses tonight.

Samuels to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, Rahim drives with the turn down to long-on for one.

And now there's a drizzle coming down. We need two more balls for a game.
