July 26 (CRICKETNMORE) - A stunning final over of the match from team captain Jason Holder earned West Indies an incredible, series-levelling, three-run victory over Bangladesh in the second One-day International in Guyana.

Chasing 272 in 50 overs, Bangladesh needed eight runs for victory in final over with 5 wickets remaining. Holder grabbed the crucial wicket of top-scorer Mushfiqur Rahim for 68 with the first delivery and conceded 0-0-2-1-1 from the remaining five deliveries to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, as the visitors narrowly fell short of their target of 272 on a humid night at the Guyana National Stadium.
