Mirpur: Nov 5, 2012
West Indies restricted Bangladesh to 227 in 49.1 overs in the third One-Day International (ODI) match at Mirpur on Wednesday.
Sunil Narine starred with the ball picking up 4 wickets for only 35 runs in his nine overs.
The hosts got off to a good start as the openers Tamim Iqbal (22) and Aanmul Haque (33) added 57 runs for the opening wicket in 12.2 overs. However, some disciplined bowling by the visitors reduced them to 110 for five before Mahmuddullah came to the rescue scoring a well-constructed half-century.
Earlier, West Indies skipper Darren Sammy won the toss and elected to bowl.
Bangladesh came into the match at the back of two convincing victories over the Caribbean side
