Discussion over Mashrafe and Sakib but Miraz , Soumya Sarkar turns the light on their side today. Mehidy Hasan Miraz bagged four wickets while Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar hit commanding fifties as Bangladesh easily beat West Indies by eight wickets on Friday to win the ODI series.
Shai Hope’s second century in as many games helped the visitors somehow manage 198 for 9, a target that seemed too easy for the Bangladesh top-order.
Tamim’s 81 runs came in 104 balls courtesy of nine fours while Soumya was brutal, hitting 80 in 81 balls in an innings that featured five fours and five sixes.
Keemo Paul bagged both the wickets of Liton Das (23) and Soumya, but the other bowlers had no luck on a day Bangladesh batsmen hardly made any mistakes.
Winning the toss, Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza opted to field first.
Miraz completed his 10 overs in as early as the 26th over of the West Indies innings, conceding just 29 runs on the way to his four-for.
Hope was once again the lone warrior, carrying the bat through the innings to score 108 in 131 balls. His innings was studded with nine fours and a six.
Shakib Al Hasan and skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza now both grabbed a brace to make sure Hope does not get support to make it a big total.
The hosts have now won both the Test and ODI series. The T20 matches will be played on 17, 20 and 22 December.
