Dhaka: Dec 8, 2012

Kieron Pollard and Darren Bravo hit contrasting half-centuries as the West Indies were bowled out for 217 in 48 overs in the fifth and deciding day-night international in Dhaka on Saturday.

Pollard hit a return to form a robust 74-ball 85 and Bravo notched a sedate 108-ball 51 during their 132-run fourth wicket stand to lift the tourists from a struggling 17-3 after they were put into bat.

With both teams vying to clinch the series tied at 2-2, Bangladesh started on a positive note when they removed Kieran Powell (11), Marlon Samuels (one) and Chris Gayle (two) by the eighth over.

Paceman Shafiul Islam, who replaced injured Mashrafe Mortaza in the squad, dismissed Gayle for a fifth failure in as many matches to finish with 3-31 in his nine overs.

Pollard, who like Gayle was a big flop in the last four matches, hit a six for his first scoring shot as he batted with aggression. He hit five boundaries and eight towering sixes to take the attack to the
Bangladeshi bowlers. He was finally dismissed in the 32nd over, bowled by spinner Mominul Haque.

The Pollard-Bravo stand for the fourth wicket is a new record in all West Indies-Bangladesh one-dayers, beating the 92-run stand between Jimmy Adams and Shivnarine Chanderpaul in Dhaka in 1999.
Bravo hit three boundaries and a six before he was caught off Mohammad Mahmudullah who finished with 2-38.

Devon Thomas chipped in with a useful 25 to take the West Indies past the 200-run mark.
