At the beginning of the match Bangladesh bowlers have to face the storm of Evin Lewis. It seemed that it was a matter of time for West Indies to score more than two hundred runs. To change the prediction tigers captain played his role as the savior at first. After making Shai Hope out Shakib took the first wicket. Then there was nothing to look back for the tigers bowlers. Shakib, Mahmudullah and Mustafiz all together tied the Caribbean innings within 190 runs. Each of them got three wickets. Lewis made a stormy innings of 89 with just 36 balls.

But in T-20, 191 runs is a big target. The beginning of the hosts was good for while. Tamim and Liton managed 22 runs facing 1.4 overs bowling. But the country’s best opener Tamim was run out to take 3 runs while responding a call from Liton.

Liton was hitting sixes and fours at the one end. Bangladesh scored 50 runs with facing 3.5 overs bowling. But unfortunately there was untoward situation over a ball of Oshane Thomas. Though field umpire called it as no ball but on television replay it was seen that Thomas’s foot was on the line.

On the following over Soumya was caught bowled by Fabian Allen. On the next ball Shakib also returned to the pavilion playing the same kind of shot. Mushfiqur also failed like the previous two matches. He was caught out bowled by Kemo Paul. Soon after Mahmudullah was on his way to the dressing room scoring 11 runs. Then all eyes were on Liton Das. But he disappointed the audiences. He was out for 52 off 25 balls. Ariful then out on the next ball. Saifuddin could not stay on the crease. Later Mehidy Miraz (19) and Abu Haider Rony (22*) tried their best.

At last tigers have to accept the defeat of 50 runs after being all out scoring 140 runs with three overs to remain. Kemo Paul took 5 wickets.

Bangladesh completed their last game in the year with a defeat and lost the T-20 series 2-1.
