Antigua: Nurul Hasan's gutsy knock of 64 was not enough to prevent Bangladesh falling to an innings and 219-run defeat at the hands of the Windies in Antigua, and they will go into the second Test in Jamaica on 12 July in need of victory to prevent losing the series.
The visitors were staring defeat in the face after day two, and they resumed proceedings on 62/6 after another devilish bowling performance from the Windies, despite the absence of Kemar Roach to injury.
Roach again decided to rest his knee, the precaution taken after feeling a twinge following his devastating spell of 5/8 on the first day.
Jason Holder (3/30) immediately got the breakthrough, Mahmudullah (15) falling to the second delivery of the day as the Windies captain got one to angle in and just jag back a touch, finding the edge and flying to Roston Chase who took a low catch at third slip diving to his right.
Shannon Gabriel (5/77) was gifted his five-wicket haul soon after, Kamrul Islam (7) swinging wildly at a straight one and having his middle stump uprooted.
It looked as if the hosts were about to make light work of the Bangladesh batting line-up, but Rubel Hossain (16) and Nurul Hasan's partnership of 55 guided their side to three figures for the first time in the game with some innovative, counter-attacking play.
