West Indies win by an innings and 99 runs

A collapse, stunning even by their own standards, turned a spirited fight by Bangladesh into a rapid nosedive to defeat by an innings and 99 runs with more than a day to spare in the second and final Test against the West Indies here in Jamaica yesterday.

A collapse, stunning even by their own standards, turned a spirited fight by Bangladesh into a rapid nosedive to defeat by an innings and 99 runs with more than a day to spare in the second and final Test against the West Indies here in Jamaica yesterday.

It was a timely boost for the West Indies prior to their tour of England that features four Tests in July and August. But they were made to fight hard for an hour and 35 minutes as the captain, Habibul Bashar, and the left-hander Manjural Islam Rana extended their overnight fourth-wicket partnership to 120 in their quest to erase a first-innings deficit of 275.

The West Indies were showing their usual signs of frustration when Rana, for 35, and Bashar, for 77, were out off successive balls, the first of six wickets that tumbled for 10 runs from seven overs in the half-hour before lunch to the combination of Omari Banks' off-spin and Pedro Collins' left-arm swing. The West Indies completed the winearly in the afternoon, Mohammed Ashraful swinging a catch to midwicket off Ramnaresh Sarwan's leg-spin.

Sarwan's unbeaten 261 and hundreds by Brian Lara and Shivnarine Chanderpaul had contributed to a total of 559 for 4 declared. Bangladesh were resuming at 66 for 3.

But Bashar, who has played in all of his country's 30 Tests, once more batted with the assurance that brought him a hundred in the first Test here. Bashar played well for just over two and a half hours, stroking nine fours, but there was little resistance from the lower order.

Collins' 6 for 53 were his best figures in his 24 Tests. Banks' 2 for 40 gave him a match return of 6 for 127 in his first Test since a stress fracture sidelined him in Zimbabwe last November.
