Spinners ensured historic Bangladesh win

Bangladesh sealed a historic second victory (in Test Cricket), when they beat West Indies by 95 runs in the 1st test match at St Vincent. Bangladesh's spin twins Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah were enough for a weakened West Indies to defeat. The only resistance came from David Bernard, who defied everything thrown at him for 134 balls to remain unbeaten on 52.

Rubel Hossain & Shahdat Hossain also supported the spinners well. But it was the spinners actually, who did the most of the damage. Shakib and Mahmudullah ensured no other batsmen would deny them a slice of history.

Common, WIPA finish your strike or West Indies could possibly lose the series. Guys like Chris Gayle, Chanderpaul & Sarwan were badly missed by the West Indies team.
