The West Indies required less than a session to seal a 10-wicket win - and two-nil series triumph - on day five of the second Test at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna on Sunday.
Resuming on 226 for six overnight, Bangladesh sported high hopes of staging a fightback. Their ambition, though, amounted to very little, with Windies fast bowler Tino Best instead enjoying a blowout second-innings six-wicket haul.
Best, who promised more with a five-for in the series opener, romped to career best figures of six for 40 in one delivery more than a dozen overs. The Tigers' lower order was no match for his pace in otherwise slow conditions.
The right-armer bowled with superb intent despite the lack of help form the pitch, screaming through the feeble tail-enders. Spinner Veerasammy Permaul, meanwhile, snared the key scalp of Mohammad Mahmudullah.
All out for 287, and with a lead of under 30, the hosts then felt the full force of hard-hitting opener Chris Gayle's pursuit of prompt victory. The powerful left-hander raced to 20 not out in just 16 deliveries, sealing the deal before the lunch break.
The result came at a small cost, though, with Best ruled out of the upcoming limited-overs series by a hamstring injury. Batsman Marlon Samuels was named Man of the Match for his double-century in the first innings, and the veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul clinched the Player of the Series accolade on the back of 354 runs in three innings.
Bangladesh, too, endured an injury blow. All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan won't play in the first two matches of the five-match ODI series after sustaining a shin injury.
