Dhaka: West Indies won the first Test against Bangladesh by 77 runs on the fifth and final day in Dhaka on Saturday, taking a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series.
Bangladesh, who were set a 245-run target, were bowled out for 167 in their second innings to lose for the 64th time in their 74 Tests.
Sohag Gazi took 6-74 -- the best figures by a Bangladeshi bowler on debut -- to raise hopes of a home win as the West Indies were dismissed for 273 in their second innings in the morning.
But the Bangladeshi batsmen floundered against a pace-cum-spin West Indian attack, with Tino Best taking a maiden five-wicket haul with 5-24 and left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul finishing with 3-32.
The second and final Test begins in Khulna from November 21.
