Windies all over the world would rejoice this massive win as the Bangladeshis have been a tough cookie at home in the recent past. And to quote the statistics, this is only the second loss for Bangladesh at Dhaka since August 2015. Phenomenal series indeed. A double hundred in a run chase on the final day. A close chase in the second contest. It has been dramatic all the way through and both the results fell in favour of the braver team.

A young West Indian team has managed to do something that other Test stalwarts have failed to achieve in the recent past. A 2-0 series win. Underdog stories always make the headlines and this will one remain on the centre spread for some time to come. Mayers, Bonner, Cornwall, they all came to the party in typical calypso style when their team needed them. They played in an unrestrained manner and that freedom provided results. They shunned their inhibitions and unchained every negativity that came their way. A massive win and a tale for the history book of cricket to underline in golden letters.
