8:12 pm, Tue September 9, 2014

The West Indies completed a 10-wicket victory over Bangladesh on the 5th and final day of the first test at the Arnos Vale Ground in St. Vincent & The Grenadines on Tuesday.

With the win, the West Indies lead the 2-match series 1-0, with the second test scheduled to begin on Saturday at the Beausejour Stadium in Gros Islet in St. Lucia.

Bangladesh resumed on Tuesday's final day on 256-5, trailing by 46 runs and captain Mushfiqur Rahim on 70. Rahim got an early life, his 3rd of his innings when he was put down on 71 by Chris Gayle in the slips. Rahim was dropped when on 10, 25, 71 and 115 during his obdurate knock of 116, his 3rd test ton - which was in vain. Because Rahim got no help from the other end as an early burst of two wickets by fast bowler Kemar Roach started the slide.

Roach was assisted by Shannon Gabriel who also collected two wickets on the 5th and final morning, as Bangladesh lost their last five wickets for 58 runs to be bowled out for 314. Hom, Islam, Rubel Hossain and Al-Amin Hossain all made ducks. Roach ended with 4-64, Gabriel 2-25, Sulieman Benn 2-44, Jerome Taylor 1-64 and Gayle 1-50.

West Indies were set 13 for victory, and they reached their target before lunch, with Chris Gayle unbeaten on 9 and Kraigg Brathwaite 4.

Final scores: West Indies 484-7 declared and 13-0; Bangladesh 182 and following on, 314 all out.
