Coming into the T20I series, there were some concerns over Andre Russell's fitness. In addition to a hamstring niggle, there were fresh concerns over his knees.
He missed two ODIs last week, but roared back into his favourite format with a match-winning unbeaten 21-ball 35 in a stiff 91 chase off 11 overs.
West Indies, who slipped to 10 for 2 by the second over in a revised chase - Bangladesh originally made 143 for 8 before rain came down - waltzed home in the end with 11 balls to spare.
After the match, a "bit worried" Russell, who was promoted to No. 3, said while he wasn't yet 100 percent fit, he was "happy enough to be playing at probably 95%."
