West Indies won the first Test against Bangladesh by 77 runs on the fifth and final day in Dhaka on Saturday, taking a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series.

Bangladesh, who were set a 245-run target, were bowled out for 167 in their second innings to lose for the 64th time in their 74 Tests.

Sohag Gazi took 6-74 — the best figures by a Bangladeshi bowler on debut — to raise hopes of a home win as the West Indies were dismissed for 273 in their second innings in the morning.

But the Bangladeshi batsmen floundered against a pace-cum-spin West Indian attack, with Tino Best taking a maiden five-wicket haul with 5-24 and left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul finishing with 3-32.

The second and final Test begins in Khulna from November 21.

Brief Scores: West Indies 527 & 273 (Kieran Powell 110, Darren Bravo 76; Rubel Hossain 2 for 55) beat Bangladesh 556 & 167 (Mahmudullah 29, Naeem Islam 26, Shahriar Nafees 23; Tino Best 5 for 24, Veersammy Permaul 3 for 32) by 77 runs.
