Toss: Bangladesh
Result: Bangladesh won by 95 runs
Player of the match: Tamim Iqbal

Match review: This was a historic win for Bangladesh. This is the first ever win against a stronger country in a test match. Previously Bangladesh won against Zimbabwe which was their only win in January 2005. The fans of Tiger Cricket can finally rejoice as their beloved team won a test match after more than 4 years.

At the beginning of this match Bangladesh looked really bad, as they couldn’t bat well in the first innings. West Indies’ also batted well in their first innings. But the last two innings totally (read: almost) belonged to Bangladesh. They scored almost 350 runs and knocked out West Indies in just 181 runs.

Bangladesh will have to win or draw the next math if they want to win this series. Best of luck.


Bangladesh scored a total of 583 runs. West Indies scored 488 runs.

The highest individual run scorer of this match was Tamim Iqbal who scored 142 runs.

The highest wicket taker of this match was dabutant Mahmudullah Riad who took 8 wickets.

Congratulations to the Tigers, Mashrafe and Tamim Iqbal.
Best of luck for the next match.
