The West Indies cricket team defeated Bangladesh by 10 wickets in the second Test, taking an easy 2-0 series victory at Daren Sammy Stadium. They won both test matches in under four days. 

After a long delay on day four due to a wet outfield, the hosts finally got Bangladesh out for 186 in their second innings. They only needed 13 runs to seal an easy victory and they did it within 17 balls. 

On the fourth day of the St. Lucia Test, the game could not start at 10 am due to the rain and as a result, the field became wet. Two on-field umpires visited the field at 11:30 and 1:00 pm, they couldn’t give good news about the start of the day’s play.

Allrounder Kyle Mayers’ unbeaten 126 runs, the only test century in this Test series helped the hosts pile a solid foundation for their first innings. In response to Bangladesh’s total 234 on day one, West Indies progressed from 67 without loss to 340 for 5 at stumps.

On Day 3 of the match, Kemar Roach became just the sixth West Indian to claim 250 Test wickets. This senior pacer crashed down the top order of the Bangladesh second innings with his fiery bowling. Facing an uphill battle, the visitors collapsed under the pressure applied by the home team’s bowling attack. Kyle Mayers and Seales took regular wickets on an interval.

Simmons, the West Indies head coach gave full credit to the fast bowlers and praised their hardship of getting the visitors all-out on a comparatively slow track. He said, “In this Test match, the fast bowlers deserve a lot of credit. We have worked hard in the two series, and come out victorious. This one maybe wasn’t as hard as the first one, the important thing is that at the end of the day, the W is behind the two Tests. We won 2-0 in Bangladesh in 2021 as well. You have to take all those things, and sit back and enjoy it.”
