Bangladesh spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz took a five-wicket haul as his side annihilated the West Indies by an innings and 184 runs on the third day in Dhaka.

Starting off the day on 75/5, the West Indies only added 11 runs to their overnight score before Shimron Hetmyer was caught and bowled by Mehidy for 39.

With Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach, Shane Dowrich and Shermon Lewis falling in quick succession, the West Indies were bundled out for 111.

Mehidy was the pick of the bowlers with seven wickets, while Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan chipped in with three.

Kieran Powell only made six runs before he was stumped by Mushfiqur Rahim off the bowling of Mehidy.

Sunil Ambris and Roston Chase both fell early to leave the West Indies in a world of trouble at 29/4.

Hetmyer and Shai Hope managed to forge a 56-run partnership before Hope was caught by Shakib at short midwicket off the bowling of Mehidy for 25.

Dowrich was the next to go, but Hetmyer and Bishoo steadied things with a 47-run partnership before Bishoo was caught by Soumya Sarkar at first slip off the bowling of Mehidy for 12 runs.

Hetmyer went on to score a 92-ball 93, which included a boundary and nine sixes, before he was caught by Mohammad Mithun at long-on off the bowling of Mehidy.

Mehidy proceeded to remove Jomel Warrican before the West Indies were skittled out for 213 when Lewis was trapped lbw off the bowling of Taijul Islam for 20.

Mehidy was the most successful bowler with five wickets, while Taijul took three, and Shakib and Nayeem Hasan claimed one wicket each.

Mehidy was named Man of the Match.
