Bangladesh made a hash of their captain s decision to bat first as they were all out for 58 in 18.5 overs against West Indies in a World Cup Group B match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium here on Friday.

Left-arm spinner Suleiman Benn picked up four wickets while Kemar vRoach and Darren Samy snared three wickets each.

Benn first added his name to the wickets column when he bowled Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan when the batsman played from his crease for 8. He went on to take the wickets of Naeem Islam, Shafiul Islam and Rubel Islam to finish with figures of 4 for 18.

Earlier, speed merchant Kemar Roach, fresh from his hat-trick showing against Netherlands, induced Tamim Iqbal to go for an expansive drive off a widish delivery only to be snapped up by Darren Sammy at second slip off the third ball of the match.

Sammy got into the wicket-taking act with the ball, showing the change room way to Imrul Kayes and Mushfiqur Rahim.

Junaid Siddique kept the runs flowing from the other end, collecting four boundaries in his 27-ball 25 but when he became Roach s second scalp, the Bangla Tigers were showing signs of falling apart.

Brief Scores: Bangladesh 58 all out in 18.5 overs (Junaid Siddique 25; Suleiman Benn 4 for 18, Kemar Roach 3 for 19, Darren Sammy 3 for 21) vs West Indies.
