Chittagong: West Indies won the second Test against Bangladesh by a huge margin. The Windies reached the target in the second innings with a target of 395 for the loss of seven wickets. Kyle Myers, who was unbeaten on 210, made an extraordinary victory. This is the first time on the Asian pitch that a team has won by such a large score in the fourth innings. Cricket pundits have hailed the Windies’ victory as one of the greatest ever in cricket history.
It is almost certain that Bangladesh will win on the fifth day. But the injury to Shakib Al Hasan was a setback for them. They lacked a spinner to bowl. At one point, the Windies were down to 59 for three. However, Kruma Bonner (86) and Myers (210) then combined to lead the team. The duo added 215 runs. This partnership is crucial to the team’s success. Bonner returned but the Windies made it easy to win by holding the tail end together. Mehdi Hasan took four wickets for Bangladesh.
Earlier, Mehdi Hasan’s century helped Bangladesh reach 430 in the first innings. The Windies were bowled out for 259 in the reply innings. The hosts had a 171-run lead. Bangladesh declared 223 innings in the second innings. Mominul Haque led the way with 115 runs. Then came the legendary victory of the Windies.
