Bishoo’s 5 for 90 helped dismiss the host for 278 after the lunch on the fifth and final day.

They had started the day on 164 for 3, 344 runs behind.

Captain Mushfiqur Rahim 69 was among those to fall to the 25-year-old Guyanese whose match haul of 8 for 152 is the best by a West Indian in an away test since lance Gibbs’ nine wicket haul against India in 1975.

However, Kirk Edwards was awarded man-of-the-match for his 121 and 86.

Scores in the match are West Indies 355 and 383/5 declared, Bangladesh 231 and 278.

The win following the drawn first test will be a morale booster for West Indies who will journey to India on Thursday for a three-test series beginning on Saturday night.
