A hurt hamstring could not stop the effervescent Tino Best from bettering his previous best performance in Test cricket in successive games. Best took three of the last four Bangladesh wickets as West Indies sealed a 2-0 series win before lunch on the final morning.

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten(DCOMM Photo) - The Prime Minister of St. Maarten the Honorable Sarah Wescot-Williams welcomed the first group of athletes that will be taken part in the wheelchair tennis tournament as part of the activities for Disabled Awareness Week.

Marlon Samuels shredded the Bangladesh attack in the morning, reached his maiden Test double hundred and then sat back to watch Shivnarine Chanderpaul breeze to his 27th century, which followed his unbeaten 203 in the Mirpur Test.

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - In a lengthy test day of 10 hours the TaeKwon Do school "King Yen" hold on Saturday his last Quarterly National Taekwondo exams for 2012 in the Gymnasium of the Sister Marie Laurence School in Middle Region.

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - For the yourh, the 2nd match day in the 2012 futsal competition started with some interested U11 matches.

West Indies have retained left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul and opener Kieran Powell for the limited-overs series against Bangladesh, starting November 30. Permaul made his Test debut in the opening game of the two-Test series against Bangladesh in Mirpur and picked up four wickets. He is yet to play an international limited-overs game. Powell made a century in each innings of the Mirpur Test, which West Indies won by 77 runs.

WEST INDIES - Tino Best's career has been more miss than hit, but on the rare occasion he combines his raw pace with control, he can be close to unplayable, as Bangladesh found today. Best's four-wicket burst either side of lunch on day five proved to be the final, decisive twist in a match that had burst open with possibilities late on day four.

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - On Saturday the last Tae Kwon Do exam for this year will be held.

As it often happens on the subcontinent, the first Test between Bangladesh and West Indies burst open with possibilities out of nowhere in the last hour on day four. From the safety of 209 for 1, West Indies lost 5 for 35 in the space of 13.1 overs. They still lead by 215 going into the final day, but with the ill Shivnarine Chanderpaul uncertain to bat tomorrow, there is hardly any batting left. Though it still looks unlikely, this may well be Bangladesh's best chance to achieve what would be their first Test win against top opposition.
