MIRPUR, March 4 (PTI): West Indies bowlers shot out co-hosts Bangladesh for a paltry 58 to set up a crushing ninewicket victory in a group league encounter at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium here today.

The 9-wicket win was one of West Indies� most comprehensive win in their 36-year history in the tournament.

Last match�s hero Kemar Roach (3/19) continued his good form while skipper Darren Sammy (3/21) and left-arm spinner Suleiman Benn (4/18) skittled out the home team in only 18.5 overs to set up one of their easiest wins of recent times.

Chris Gayle then smashed his way to a 36-ball 37 with the help of six boundaries as the winners completed the formalities in only 12.2 overs losing the wicket of Devon Thomas.

The total duration of the match was only 31.1 overs.

It was a sweet revenge for the men from Caribbean Islands as Bangladesh had whitewashed a second string Windies team 2-0 and 3-0 in Tests and ODIs back in 2009.

For West Indies, huge back-to-back wins will be big confidence booster with matches coming up against some of the better teams.

Bangladesh�s 58-run total was their lowest in ODI history as well as in the tournament, and the fourth lowest total in the history of World Cup.

The slide started with Roach inducing an edge off opener Tamim Iqbal (0) with an outswinger that was gleefully accepted by skipper Sammy at second slip.
