Last Updated: 04/07/18 11:24pm
Kemar Roach bagged 5-8 as Windies demolished Bangladesh for 43, their lowest Test total, on the opening morning of the first Test in Antigua.
Bangladesh's lowly tally was also the second shortest first innings in the 141-year history of Test cricket. At 18.4 overs, it was just one ball longer than Australia's dismissal for 60 off 18.3 overs by England at Trent Bridge in 2015.
Captain Shakib al Hassan, former skipper Musfiqur Rahim and all-rounder Mahmudullah all failed to score while opener Tamim Iqbal contributed four runs.
Roach set the rout in motion and only opener Liton Das (25) went on to reach double-figures before falling to Miguel Cummins (3-11)
West Indies captain Jason Holder (2-10), fresh from a nine-wicket haul in defeat in the final Test against the Sri Lankans in Barbados, polished off the innings with the wickets of Kamrul Islam and debutant Abu Jayed.
In reply, the West Indies reached stumps on 201-2 - a lead of 158 runs - with Kraigg Brathwaite unbeaten on 88. Devon smith earlier hit 58 in a century opening stand, while Kieron Powell managed 48 before falling in the final four overs of the day.
