Resuming on 256 for five overnight, the hosts sported plenty of ambition to post a competitive lead. A prompt two wickets from fast bowler Kemar Roach, however, blunted the pursuit.

Home skipper Mushfiqur Rahim, however, secured a fine consolation century. Rahim struck 15 fours and a six en route to a commanding 116. His wicket was the last of the innings, leaving the Windies a very modest target of 13.

Openers Chris Gayle and Kraigg Brathwaite duly shared three boundaries to ensure triumph with more than two sessions to spare.

Brathwaite was named Man of the Match after scoring an outstanding double century in the first innings. The second and final Test will get underway in Gros Islet on Saturday.
