West Indies needed 35 runs, Bangladesh 8 wickets. Shakib Al Hasan's team had to do the impossible to prevent the series from falling behind. Even so, no team batting in the fourth innings with a target of 84 or less has never lost before. In the end, nothing impossible happened. The hosts took a 1-0 lead in the two-match series after winning the first Test in Antigua by 6 wickets. It took West Indies 8 overs and about 27 minutes to complete the victory. John Campbell remained unbeaten on 56, while Jermaine Blackwood on 28. The pair scored 79 runs. Blackwood completed the team's 50 with doubles in the first over of the day by Khaled Ahmed. Shakib started the innings with Mostafizur Rahman the day before but today he brought Ibadat Hossain to the other end with Khaled. However, Maren Campbell flicked the first four of the day on that pad. He hit another four off just the next ball, his fourth wicket partnership with Blackwood, to complete his half-century.
Later, in Khaled's over, two more fours were hit by Maren Campbell — the first with a soft hand abuse, the latter with a great cover drive. With the next four, the required runs of West Indies came down to one figure. Campbell reached 48 runs with those four, in the next over, Mehedi Hasan Miraj gave Maiden to give Campbell a chance to score a half-century. Campbell swept Nazmul Hossain in the next over to complete his half-century off just 63 balls. He ensured victory by hitting six in that over.
With almost 6 sessions left, Bangladesh had to lose the first Test. Basically, they fell far behind in the first day of the match, lost the toss and opted to bat and were reduced to 103 runs. In the second innings too, Bangladesh got a big pair in that sense, but that too in the seventh wicket. Shakib Al Hasan and Nurul Hasan's 123-run stand helped Bangladesh avoid an innings defeat, it can be said now.
