Full commentary

As has been the theme of the series. West Indies got Bangladesh into an uncomfortable position but could not quite keep them down and will have 3-0 to show for their efforts. On the other hand Bangladesh found one player or the other to raise their hands up in crucial moments

On reflection West Indies will find that their inability to play out the overs and the dropped catch of Mahmudullah off the first ball he faced cost them dear

Join us in a short while for the presentations

Reifer feels another 15-20 runs would have made the difference and more partnerships were required at the top of order and he congratulates the Bangladesh team on winning the series

Shakib says that they were looking forward to this series and is happy that they have won the series. He is also happy with the fact that someone or the other raised their hands up in times of need and were counted

Mahmudullah is the Man of the match and says that he enjoyed the knock as he scored a half-century after some time and feels that he enjoyed his batting as the series was already won

Shakib Al Hasan is the Man of the series

Thats it from all of us at Cricinfo. Have a good night's sleep and join us for the T20 international on Sunday

Sammy to Razzak, 3 runs

and Fletcher drops it! He has been having a bad time on the field time as Razzak top edges a hoick and Fletcher has to run backwards from mid-off to take the catch. He covers the distance but cant get his hands around the ball
