DHAKA: Paceman Tino Best grabbed his maiden five-wicket haul to help the West Indies beat Bangladesh by 77 runs in the first Test in an exciting fifth day finish at Shere Bangla stadium on Saturday.

The 31-year-old paceman took three wickets in the post lunch session and added another in the final session, finishing with 5-24 to rout Bangladesh for a paltry 167 after they were set a 245-run target.

Best dismissed Shahriar Nafees (23), Shakib Al Hasan (two) and Mushfiqur Rahim (16) in quick succession and then had Bangladesh’s top scorer Mohammad Mahmudullah (29) to give his team a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series.

Bangladesh, seeking their second win at home and fourth overall in Test cricket, lost openers Tamim Iqbal (five) and Junaid Siddique (20) in a disappointing start.

Siddiqui became Best’s first victim in the innings before lunch.

But worse was to come for the Tigers as Best caught Nafees miscuing a pull off his own bowling and in his next over had Bangladesh’s best batsman Shakib Al Hasan caught behind.

Rahim looked good initially but Best returned for a second spell to trap the Bangladeshi skipper in front of the wicket to derail Bangladesh to 85-5.

Sixteen runs later, Veerasammy Permaul had Naeem Islam lbw after the first innings century maker had made only 26. Permaul also dismissed Nasir Hossain for 21 and Sohag Gazi (19) to finish with 3-32 on his debut. Earlier, Bangladesh were put on course for a win by off-spinner Gazi whose 6-74 are the best figures by a home bowler on debut.
