After losing the toss, the West Indies posted a gettable 247 for 7 from their fifty overs with Chris Gayle and Darren Bravo each scoring half centuries.

In reply, the opener Tamim Iqbal (37) was the only Bangladeshi to reach double figures as his team collapsed inside 25 overs for just 70.

The visitors' last seven wickets fell for 13 runs as Sunil Narine and Kemar Roach each took three wickets for the home side.

After winning the first ODI also in Grenada, the West Indies have wrapped up the three match series 2-nil with the final game to be played in St Kitts on Wednesday.
