West Indies trounced Bangladesh by runs in the second One-Day International (ODI) at at St George’s, Grenada. With the win, West Indies also took the series 2-0 with one match to play. Having been set a target of 248, Bangladesh crashed and burned in reply. Sunil Narine and Kemar Roach ran through the middle order, as Bangladesh went through a horror spell in which they lost five wickets for 10 runs in a matter of a few overs.

Tamim Iqbal looked good for his 37, but one after another Bangladesh batsman played loosely as the West Indian pacers kept pegging away at the wickets. The introduction of Narine caused an immediate impact, though, as he struck twice in two balls to remove Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah. They lost their last seven wickets for just 13 runs in the process. Ultimately, Tamim ended up scoring more than half the runs Bangladesh managed to score.

Earlier, West Indies set a target of 248. Bangladesh bowlers kept the pressure up for the most part, with special praise going to the new-ball bowlers, Mashrafe Mortaza and Al-Amin Hossain, for their disciplined spells. Morataza is the most successful bowler for them. His figures are 10 overs, one maiden, three wickets and 39 runs.

West Indies managed to get themselves to a respectable 247 for 7  which is a fighting score on this track. The innings was shaped largely by the contributions of Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Denesh Ramdin and Lendl Simmons. Gayle (58) gave them the start and Darren Bravo (53) played a solid knock in the middle.

Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur won the toss and asked the West Indies to bat first. They mad just one change in their team as Razzak replaced Taskin Ahmed in the playing XI, as they were expecting the pitch to turn and it turned a bit.

Brief Scores:

West Indies 247 for seven in 50 overs (Chris Gayle 58, Darren Bravo 53 ; Mashrafe Mortaza three for 39) beat Bangladesh 70 (Tamim Iqbal 37; Sunil Narine 3 for 13, Kemar Roach 3 for 19) by 177 runs.

Man of the match: Sunil Narine
