(JAMAICA OBSERVER) — Captain Jason Holder produced a superb performance in leading the West Indies to a 166-run win and a 2-0 series sweep against Bangladesh on the third day of the second Test at Sabina Park on Saturday.
Chasing 335 for victory, Bangladesh were bowled out for 168, their highest total in an innings throughout the series as they suffered a 219 run defeat in the first Test in Antigua last week.
With the series victory, West Indies have now jumped into eighth position on the International Cricket Council (ICC) Test rankings, relegating Bangladesh to ninth.
Bangladesh captain Shakib All Hasan, who earlier took 6-33, which was the best figure for a Bangladesh bowler away from home, later returned to register his team’s topscore of 54, which included 10 boundaries.
Holder was registering his third Test career five-wicket haul after earlier taking 5-44 in the first innings, took 6-59 in the second innings to end with match figures of 11-103, which is now the best match figure by a West Indies captain in a home series.
Scores: West Indies 354 & 129; Bangladesh 149 & 168 (42 overs)
