The West Indies proved why they are arguably the best T20I side at the moment as they thrashed Bangladesh by eight wickets in the first match of the three-game series at Sylhet International Stadium Monday.

Chasing Bangladesh's 129, the Windies romped home in 10.5 overs with opener Shai Hope maintaining his fine form in the tour, blasting 55 off 23 balls, featuring three fours and half a dozen sixes.

Earlier, left-arm seamer Sheldon Cottrell led the way for the Windies, bagging four wickets, to restrict the Tigers to 129 all out in 19 overs.

Captain Shakib al Hasan, who had won the toss and decided to bat first, top-scored with a 43-ball 61, including eight boundaries and a couple of over boundaries.
