West Indies declared on 484 for 7, with more than an hour left to work on the Bangladesh batting before lunch on the third day in St Vincent.

The hosts’ pursuit for quick runs allowed left-arm spinner Taijul Islam to cash in with a five-wicket haul.

They picked up 62 runs in the 17 overs, with Kraigg Brathwaite being the first casualty for 212 off 447 balls. He was caught at short fine leg as he tried to slog sweep Taijul. He struck 14 fours, ending the slowest double-century, in terms of strike-rate and boundaries hit, in the last five years. (cricinfo)
