Bangladesh stun West Indies

Kingstown: Bangladesh claimed just their second ever test victory with a 95-run win over a makeshift West Indies side in the first test on Monday.

Debutant off-spinner Mohammed Mahmudullah did the damage with figures of five for 50 as West Indies fell to 181 all out with just over 40 minutes of play remaining.

Shakib Al Hasan formalised Bangladesh's second Test victory ever, when he trapped Tino Best lbw plumb in front for nine with a dipping full toss, and ended with 3-39 from 28.1 overs.

Bangladesh's only previous victory came at home to Zimbabwe in January 2005.

The Tigers' second victory came in their 60th test since becoming a full test-playing nation nine years ago.
