GROS ISLET, St Lucia (CMC): A century from Shiv Chanderpaul, Sulieman Benn's five-wicket haul and three wickets from Jerome Taylor helped, as West Indies ran rings around Bangladesh to win by 296 runs in the second Test and claim a 2-0 series win yesterday.

Chasing an insurmountable 488 to win, Bangladesh collapsed from 158 for three to 188 all-out in the final session of the fourth day of the five-day match, as West Indies produced another command performance.

Tamim Iqbal and Mominul Haque staged an amazing fightback for the tourists by adding 110 runs for the third wicket after coming together at 48 for two.

In only their second hundred partnership of the series, opener Iqbal played patiently to reach a top score of 64, while Haque contributed 56.

But when Benn broke the partnership by removing Iqbal, the rampaging Caribbean boys pressed home the advantage to seal a lopsided victory in the 500th Test of their history.

Bangladesh enjoyed a laborious, but productive second session without losing a wicket as Iqbal and Haque frustrated the hosts.

Tamim's departure, caught in the deep by Shannon Gabriel off Benn, signalled the start of a dramatic collapse.

Bangladesh conceded their last eight wickets for 34 runs, including losing four wickets for nine runs, as the lower order failed to produce any fight.

They were wiped out by Benn, who claimed five wickets for 72 runs, while Taylor, who claimed three wickets, also completed his 100 wickets for the West Indies in the format.
