West Indies win series against Bangladesh

Kingston:

Left-arm pacer Pedro Collins took a career-best six wickets and the West Indies beat Bangladesh by an innings and 98 runs to win their second Test on the fourth day at Sabina Park. Bangladesh, which resumed at 66 for three chasing down a first innings deficit of 275, fell away dramatically in the last 35 minutes of the morning session and were eventually bowled out for 176 just after lunch. The defeat was Bangladesh's 27th in 30 Tests and gave West Indies a 1-0 victory in the two-match series. The home team, becalmed for the first hour and a half, suddenly sprung to life to claim six wickets for 10 runs in the space of eight overs before lunch. Ramnaresh Sarwan, who hit an unbeaten 261 in the West Indies first innings, finished the match by claiming the final wicket with his leg-spin 10 minutes after the interval. The 23-year-old earned the Man of the Match and Man of the Series awards. (AP)
