In a two-Test series in early July the West Indies (WI) team crushed Bangladesh (nicknamed the Tigers) in both matches to win the series in a most convincing fashion.
The first Test at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua from July 4 – 8 only lasted seven sessions! It was the fifth biggest Test victory ever by a WI team which gave Jason Holder’s men the momentum going into the second Test at Sabina Park, Jamaica.
They continued the good work by another compelling win by 166 runs! These two triumphs meant a lot to the WI cricketers, not only because to win is always an injection of good feeling, but the mere fact that Bangladesh, a side that was accepted into the Test fold some 72 years after the WI, lie above them on the global standings in Test cricket.
