Lucas Street (Barbados): Jun 11, 2014

Jamaican all-rounder Andre Russell wrecked Bangladesh A with a six-wicket haul to once again inspire West Indies High Performance Centre (HPC) to a three-wicket win and an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match One-Day series.

Russell, bowling with pin-point accuracy, ripped through the top and lower order batting as Bangladesh A stuttered and stumbled to 179 all-out in 46.5 overs at the Windward Cricket Club on Tuesday, reports CMC.

Russell, HPC’s hero in Sunday’s opening match with a powerful century that turned the tables against the visitors, finished with six wickets for 28 runs from 8.5 overs, which set the stage for the home side to overhaul the target losing seven wickets in the process.

A top score of 45 not out from Chadwick Walton and 40 from Ashley Nurse led the run chase for HPC, who slipped a bit but recovered to 180 for seven in 38.4 overs to seal the series.

Bangladesh A, who won the toss and elected to bat, lost their openers cheaply to Russell and plunged to 48 for three by the 15th over.

However an enterprising fourth-wicket partnership of 67 runs between Marshall Ayub and Naeem Islam attempted to steady the Bangladesh innings. Ayub scored 45 while Islam, who also scored 45, featured in two crucial partnerships aimed at rebuilding the innings.

Ashley Nurse also bowled impressively to grab two wickets for 38 runs including an important breakthrough for HPC when he had Islam caught five runs shy of his half century.

Bangladesh A were always in trouble against the HPC attack and the lower order could not stand up to the challenge as the last five wickets fell for just 28 runs.

HPC suffered an early set back to the chase when Johnson Charles lost his wicket in the second over without scoring but recaptured the momentum when Jermaine Blackwood and Nkrumah Bonner put on 51 runs for the second wicket.

HPC slipped again when they lost Bonner for 28 runs, to be precariously placed at 59 for four in the 13th over but Jonathan Carter and Walton brought them back on course by putting together 41 runs for the 5th wicket.

Blackwood scored 28, Nurse held the lower order together to be not out on 40 while Carter contributed 26. The main wicket takers for Bangladesh A were Robiul Islam (3/59), Farhad Reza (2/22) and Muktar Ali (2/35).  The third and final one day game between HPC and Bangladesh A will be played on Thursday.

Brief scores:

Bangladesh A 179 in 46.5 overs (Nurul Islam 45, Marshall Ayub 45; Andre Russell 6 for 28, Ashley Nurse 2 for 38) lost to West Indies HPC 180 for 7 in 38.2 overs (Chadwick Walton 45*, Ashley Nurse 40*, Jermaine Blackwood 28, Nkrumah Bonner 28, Jonathan Carter 26; Robiul Islam 3 for 59, Farhad Reza 2 for 22, Muktar Ali 2 for 35) by 3 wickets.
