A Windies whitewash.
Set a modest target of 119 by Bangladesh, who had made 118 for seven from their 25 overs, it was easy enough for the hosts to knock off the runs for the loss of three wickets with five balls to spare.
Devon Smith (pictured right) piloted the Windies home with a steady and unbeaten 39 with Ramnaresh Sarwan on seven at the end of the match.
The game had been reduced to 25 overs because of heavy rain and Bangladesh skipper Habibul Bashar won the toss and elected to bat.
Bashar's 42 was the rock on which the tourists' innings was born. The pick of the Windies bowlers was Dwayne Smith whose figures of three for 24 came off four overs but included the key wicket of Bashar.
