West Indies and Bangladesh face each other in the final game of the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series at Basseterre. Bangladesh will be playing for pride in this game as West Indies gained an unassailable 2-0 lead in the second game St. George’s in Grenada on Friday.
While the first game between the two sides was a close contest which ended in a tense 13-run win for the hosts, who were reeling at 34 for the loss of five wickets while chasing a 215-run target. The second game however, was lop-sided to say the least. In capitulating to their third lowest ODI total, Bangladesh lost their last seven wickets for 13 runs in the space of eight overs. Sunil Narine and Kemar Roach combined to decimate a clearly dispirited Bangladesh side in which only opening batsman Tamim Iqbal offered any meaningful resistance in getting to 37.
His was the last of three wickets to fall with the score on 57, popping up a simple catch to midwicket off Roach after Narine had effectively ended any chance the tourists had of an upset set win when he removed Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah off successive deliveries in the 16th over. Narine snared three for 13 to take the man of the match award while Roach played his part with figures of three for 19.
