Mushfiqur Rahim: In this Test, there were a couple of guys who put up their hand and did a good job, congratulations to Shakib for his 100th wicket and Nasir for his good form but we need to work harder to have more players performing like them. One of our challenges is to overcome our problems and bat much better. The ODI series will be a great series for the guys and the others who will be joining us.

Darren Sammy: Step in the right direction and the team played well, it was remarkable to see the way we played. Best has put us in good positions. Good to see everyone has put in a lot of hard work, we are taking steps to get going in Test matches as well. The guys are coming in for the ODIs, and they are practicing at Dhaka, hopefully it will be a step in the right direction. We won't take Bangladesh for granted in the series. Want to thank the crowd for coming out and supporting us.

Shakib al Hasan gets an award for his 100 Test wickets.

Marlon Samuels gets the man of the match award. He scored 260 in the first innings. He says, "Every innings if important, team management has been excellent. Kind of wicket, we needed to give ourselves some time and then we can start scoring fast. Enjoying the stay here and looking forward to the ODIs."

Shivanarine Chanderpaul gets the man of the series award. Not Tino Best, who would have gotten close too, with two successive five-wicket hauls.

So that is it from Suneer Chowdhary, it has been a pleasure bringing you this Test match. Hope you enjoyed our live coverage for this game, three other Test matches on today and you can hop over to any of them. Signing off, ciao!


In the end, it has been an easy win for the West Indies, winning by 10 wickets, third time that Bangladesh have lost by that margin. It would be fair to say that Bangladesh were thoroughly outplayed, barring that one session on the opening day when debutant Abul Hasan smashed that superb century batting at number 10. The two sessions before that and the rest of them after that belonged to the West Indies.

Back for the presentation in some time. In the meantime you can also head over to any of the three other Test matches going on today at Colombo, Adelaide or Mumbai for our live coverage.
