Bangladesh have crushed West Indies by an innings and 184 runs at Mirpur on Sunday to claim the second Test and with it the series 2-0, their biggest ever victory and first home series win over their opponents.

Bangladesh’s previous biggest margin of victory in a Test was 226 runs, when they beat Zimbabwe in 2005 for their maiden victory.
