Overs: 18.4 / 0.0


11.47am That is that. West Indies secure an innings-and-219-run win in less than seven sessions. Shannon Gabriel was taken apart by Nurul, but the quick worked his way to another five-wicket haul. Nurul's rapid half-century and his 55-run stand for the ninth wicket with Rubel only delayed the inevitable. Do stick around for the presentations, which I will bring shortly.

Shakib Al Hasan: Very tough for us. But I think there are a lot of areas we need to work on. We were beaten in all three departments. We need to prepare ourselves in the next five days. Adapting to these conditions is not easy;we're not used to this. Nurul batted really well today. Credit to him. Jayed was impressive in his debut. He showed his character and can be a great prospect for Bangladesh

Jason Holder: Good to start the series well. I did not expect the 43 all out and Kemar Roach was outstanding. We had one no-ball in this game and if we have to be critical, we could have been more clinical in the second innings. Big effort from the quicks, hopefully they can continue. I'm pleased with my performance personally.

Kemar Roach, Player of the Match: I have played a couple of times against them and know some players well. The pitch is of some help and more movement and bounce. I've been working really hard with the fast-bowling coach Corey Collymore. Shannon has been doing a fantastic job, Cummins as well.

That's a wrap of this match. Thanks for reading. Ciao.

Jay: "RALLY ROUND THE WEST INDIES!!!! You should be very proud"

JimK : "Brathwaite + Hope = 188 BDESH 1 + BDESH 2 = 187 :D"

jahangir shahza: "All 4 West Indian bowlers has taken 5 wickets each in the match. Interesting any other time it has happened? " --- Not sure but nice symmetry

Giri_Thalafan: "Someone at the end of Bangladesh 1st innings came in support of them by quoting Ind A performance against WI A. The difference here is what they learn from their mistakes.. Ind A performing exceptionally well 2nd innings whereas Bangladesh didn't :(. The reason why they face lot of criticism "

40.2ML Cummins to Rubel Hossain, OUT, No run, Cummins nails the leg stump to wrap up West Indies' massive innings win. Short and skidding in, Rubel has an almighty leg-side slog at it... and misses. All 20 wickets to WI quicks.

Stuart Law, WI coach: We've been more dominant against Bangladesh. Having said that, we need to finish it today. Very pleasing. We're all giving the guys a fair opportunity. The bowlers have started the series reasonably well. We also have a big tour of India coming up. Great to have Kemar back in the side.

krish: "Will BD lose themselves to Brathwaite? They need 16 runs to win Brathwaite. That will be an achievement too. In other words, Brathwaite wins by an innings and few runs if they gets all out before 16 runs. "

9.30am Good morning, everyone, and welcome to what could be the final day of the Antigua Test. After tumbling to 43 all out - their lowest total in Test cricket in the first innings, Bangladesh suffered another collapse and are on the brink of a massive innings defeat. There are 62 for 6; they could have been seven down had Miguel Cummins not overstepped in the last over on the second day.

Bangladesh's senior batsmen kept making the same mistakes in both innings, and the fast bowlers were toothless in helpful conditions. Where will Bangladesh go from here?

Srinivas: "WI should bowl 18 overs today to get last few wickets, it will be nice symmetry that they bowled 18 overs on each day"

TQ: "BD are in all sort of mess but the sad part is players who make even a small impact will be forgotten after the series. For instance abu jayed. He picked up 3 wickets but BD will lose today and he will be dropped later on when they play back on spin friendly tracks and only pick the fizz as the pace bowler"


Mark: "Last night the West Indies were probably only one wicket from being able to take the extra half hour and - quite possibly - put the game to bed. That was a remarkable achievement when they only left themselves 18 overs to bowl at Bangladesh."

5:29pm And that is stumps. For whatever it's worth, Bangladesh will come out tomorrow with one senior batsman in. But if the last two days are anything to go by, that will barely be of any use. A truly dire situation from which the only real positive they might get is the extra few days to recover from the shock. Shocked is how their batsmen have looked, every time a ball has come close good length and in the corridor. The leave has, once again, evaded them. The outside edge, they keep finding. And without Kemar Roach, West Indies have still inflicted serious damage. Gabriel and Holder are both on the cusp of very good Test match returns.

Before all of this - a seventh Test ton for Brathwaite, a much-needed fifty for Shai Hope and some useful batting from the lower order to take the match well beyond Bangladesh. And then some. Join us tomorrow for what looks like it will be the final day. Good night!

That was West Indies' first no-ball of the match

Jeremy Stewart: "Just so sad and embarrassing. I have been delighted with their cricket progress but better teams will not want this kind of lack of competition (and it makes a mockery of serious statistics.) They must sort themselves out quickly."

Sajjad: "According to Eisenstein Time is relative my friend. "

Faruq: "Absolutely disgusted by Bangladesh team's performance. It's games like these that a person wonders if their team has actually improved over the last few years. Coach or no coach, there are senior batsmen in that team who have more than 50 test games under their belt, they should've performed better. "

Salil: "It feels weird to listen to Danny Morrison commentating in test cricket. Feels like Adam Sandler in a Martin Scorsese movie."

Andy C: "Bang (current match aggregate of 87 with 5 wickets in hand) have got past the lowest match aggregate of all time but are still some way from avoiding utter ignominy : SA (v Aus 1932) 36 + 45 = 81; SA (v Eng 1889) 47 + 43 = 90; NZ (v Aus 1946) 42 + 54 = 96; Pak (v Aus 2002) 59 + 53 = 112; Eng (v Aus 1888) 53 + 62 = 115; NZ (v Eng 1958) 47 + 74 = 121."

Thanks Deiva.

I'm off. Varun will take you through to stumps, that is if Bangladesh last

Brutus_Shylock: "I really do sympathize with Bangladesh Players and fans, they are trying their best and giving it all, there is a lot of passion but sometimes one needs experience of playing in different conditions and players who know how to fight it out in test match cricket. Sometimes in this frenzy of expectations and the world of "I am better than you" people tend to rate teams as the best-ever or the worst-ever. In any case, Bangladesh haven't done justice to their talent yet. "
