West Indies in Bangladesh, 2011


Bangladesh routs WI in final ODI

Bangladesh earned a consolation victory over the West Indies in the third and final ODI of the tour. Having already lost the series 2-0 in tame fashion, the emphatic 8-wicket victory where they rolled over the West Indies to their second lowest total of 61 would salve some of the wounded Tigers and go towards redeeming themselves for their own rout by the West Indies at the last world cup.

Put in to bat by Bangladesh, the West Indies could only manage to make 61 all out after 22 overs at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong.

Opener Kieran Powell's 25 was the top score for the West Indies followed by Carlos Brathwaite's 11 batting at number eight. At one point the West Indies lost seven wickets in the space of just six overs, with Shakib Al Hasan picking 4-16 to lead the wicket list for the hosts. Nasir Hossain and Shafiul Islam got two each, while Nazmul Hossain and Suhrawadi Shuvo took one wicket each.

In return, Bangladesh had a sight hiccup as they lost Shahriar Nafees for a duck and Imrul Kayes' for 11 but unbeaten pair of Tamim Iqbal (36) and skipper Mushfiqur Rahim (10) finished the job in style in under 20 overs.

The two side will now play a two-Test series starting in Chittagong on October 21.
