Bangladesh smile at last. What a match have presented Shakib, Tamin, Liton and their fellows. Tigers have survived. Bangladesh reached their target of 322 runs completing 41.3 overs. In the match Shakib scored unbeaten 124 runs and Liton scored also an innings of unbeaten 94 runs. Two openers Tamim and Soumya scored 48 and 29 respectively. Mushfiq scored 1 run.
Earlier, Bangladesh captain Mashrafe decided to field first after winning the toss. The return of the decision came at the beginning. In the fourth over Caribbean opener Chris Gayle went to the pavilion after giving a catch for zero bowled by Saifuddin. Then the wheel of scoring runs began to slow down. But that was not for longer. Lewis and Hope began to play hitting the ball.
Lewis was sent back to the dressing room by Shakib after scoring 70 runs of 67 balls. Hope was showing hope for the Caribbean. Pooran added 25 runs to the score board and was also sent back by Shakib.
Then Hope and Hetmyer began to dominate over Bangladesh bowlers. This pair added 83 run. Mustafiz sent dangerous Hetmyer back who scored 50 of just 25 balls. Then Holder came and added total 39 runs with Hope in the partnership. Saifuddin took the wicket of Holder.
Hope was on the brink of his century but could not make it and was caught out by Liton bowled by Mustafiz.
Mustafiz took three wickets giving away 59 runs, Saifuddin bagged three wickets and Shakib two.
West Indies collected 321 runs with loss of 8 wickets after completing 50 overs.
