West Indies salvaged a little pride as they defeated Bangladesh by 5 wickets in the only Twenty20 interantional of the tour at Warner Park in St. Kitts today. This was Bangladesh's solitary loss in the tour after securing historic Test and ODI series victory against the West Indies.
Batting first, Bangladesh could only manage 118 after some reckless batting display and the hosts easily overhauled the victory target with 19 balls to spare.
"We didn't bat well, especially the top-order batsmen, including myself, and we didn't play smart cricket, that was our downfall," said Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan.
"I don't know why we played like this, but we didn't execute our game plan well. If you have four run-outs in an innings, it will be very difficult for you to score runs in a T20."
He added: "We have played very good cricket for the last month, and one bad game does not make us look bad. We are looking forward to our trip to Zimbabwe. It will be very important to us."
Bangladesh will now travel to Zimbabwe for a 5 match ODI series which starts on 9 August in Bullawayo.
