Bangladesh beat West Indies in 3rd ODI, Seal Series 2-1
July 29 (CRICKETNMORE), BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – Bangladesh beat West Indies by 18 runs in the 3rd and final ODI on Saturday to win the series 2-1.
A trio of half-centuries from Rovman Powell, Chris Gayle and Shai Hope failed to top Tamim Iqbal’s 11th career hundred that set up Bangladesh for an 18-run victory over West Indies in the decisive ODI.
Powell hit five fours and four sixes in the top score of an unbeaten 74 off 41 balls, Gayle supported with 73 off 66 balls that included six fours and five sixes, and Shai Hope gathered five fours in 64 from 94 balls, but WINDIES, chasing 302 for victory, finished on 283 for six in 50 overs on a typically slow Warner Park pitch.
The result meant that Bangladesh won the series 2-1.
Earlier, no WINDIES bowler distinguished himself, but Tamim covered himself in personal glory with seven fours and two sixes in 103 from 124 balls and Mahmudullah struck five fours and three sixes in 67 not out off 49 balls to be the rocks upon which the Bangladeshis built a total of 301 for six in 50 overs, after they chose to bat.
Bangladesh 301/6 (Tamim 103, Mahmudullah 67*; Nurse 2/53, Holder 2/55)
Windies 283/6 (R Powell 74*, Gayle 74; Mashrafe 2/63, Rubel 1/34)
