Full commentary

We appreciate you staying with us and watching the game coverage throughout the last 4 days. Join us for the opening T20I game of the 3 match series' on July 2. Until then, goodnight and take care. Signing off on behalf of myself, Raghav and Chandan.

Brathwaite: I think the confidence we got from winning the first game was nice. The planning and execution in this match was top-notch, as you can see from how Mayers played. There is always room for improvement. That's one thing that we always want to keep doing, batting 100 overs whenever we bat. Kemar Roach is a legend of the game. You have to see his attitude off the field. Mayers is special. He is a match-winner. I believe in his ability. It's good to get wins. Australia in Australia is going to be tough. Bangladesh bowlers were very good and it was tough. No matter what the team, you have to stick to your plans.

Kyle Mayers is the Player of the match and series: We were in a bit in a trouble when I came into bat and wanted to wrest back the initiative. I have made three centuries in all formats. Of course, the 200 was good but this century felt special as I wanted to do well in this series. I always want to make the batter play when I bowl. I will look to take the same positive mindset to the other formats as well

Shakib Al Hasan: We always felt that in Test Format it was always going to be tough. We are going to play at home after a long break. We can reflect on these performances. I am not worried about batting. We need to be mentally tough. [On fast bowling] that's the area we have improved the most in the last 3-4 years. We need to play as a team to win matches. We are a competitive team in white-ball cricket and I am sure it will be a competitive series

Throughout the test series, Bangladesh's batters once again surrendered, gave away their wickets, and were frequently exposed by short deliveries. The management of the Bangladesh team has a lot on its plate, particularly with the batting department given their ongoing batting troubles. The batsmen' impatience and temperament had a significant impact on both test matches. The bowlers, on the other hand, fought valiantly despite the fact that the scoreboard did not accurately reflect their efforts.

4:10 pm local time West Indies win by 10 wickets. This loss is Bangladesh's 100th loss in Test Cricket.. The West Indies finished the game and won the series 2-0 in one hour and ten minutes. In all three departments, the hosts dominated both test matches. In this round of the World Test Championship, West Indies has performed well at home. They now hold the sixth spot in the rankings after four victories.
