Kemar Roach claimed five wickets for West Indies

Bangladesh made the worst possible start to their Test series against West Indies when they were bowled out for just 43 in Antigua.

The tourists lasted just 18.4 overs of the opening morning before they were dismissed for their lowest ever total in Test cricket.

Only one batsman - Liton Das, who made 25 - reached double figures for Bangladesh as Kemar Roach claimed sensational figures of 5-8 in five overs.

Miguel Cummins took 3-11 and Jason Holder 2-10 as the Windies raced into the ascendancy at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

The miserable effort was 19 runs worse than Bangladesh's previous low score, the 62 made against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 2007.

Four batsman were dismissed without scoring, while numbers three through six faced just eight balls between them.

The highest partnership of the innings was the 16 put on for the sixth wicket by Das and Nurul Hasan.

It is the 10th time that Bangladesh have been bowled out for a score below 100 in Tests.

FALL OF WICKETS
1-10, 2-16, 3-18, 4-18, 5-18, 6-34, 7-34, 8-35, 9-35, 10-43
