Dhaka, May 13 (UNB) - West Indies posted a moderate total of 247 for 9 in 50 overs in the 5th match of the ongoing Tri-Nation Series against Bangladesh at The Village in Dublin, Ireland on Monday, featuring opener Shai Hope’s 87 and Jason Holder’s 62 runs.
West Indies failed to make an ideal start in the match as they posted only 37 runs in the first wicket stand. Sunil Ambris, who scored a ton in the previous game against Ireland, fell for 23 runs.
Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza broke the opening stand of the Caribbean. The ball was outside off stump and Ambris went to drive it through the cover but prodded to slip cordon. Soumya Sarkar dived to his right and managed a smart catch.
West Indies lost three more wickets before reaching the 100-run mark. Darren Bravo, Roston Chase and Jonathan Carter failed to impress as they fell respectively for 6, 19 and 3 runs.
Two of them were removed by Mustafizur Rahman, who was expensive in the previous match against the Caribbean, another one was taken by Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
However, West Indies made an act of redemption in the fifth wicket stand when Hope and Holder added 100 runs on the board. Hope was doing well enough to register his fourth ODI ton against the Tigers. But he failed to judge the angle of the ball of Mashrafe and gave a catch to the wicketkeeper.
Hope went to pull but fell for 87 with six fours and one six.
Mashrafe also removed Holder who looked to get more dangerous for the bowlers of the Tigers. Holder posted 62 with three fours and one six.
Hope was the best batsman with his brilliant 87.
The most positive thing of Bangladesh in the innings was Mustafizur’s bowling. He took four wickets conceding 43 runs in nine overs. In the previous game, he took two wickets but conceded 84 runs, which was his second worst bowling in ODI cricket.
West Indian batsmen were clueless to play against Mustafizur’s off-cutter and slower deliveries.
Along with Mustafizur, Masrhafe bagged three wickets as well. Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan took one wicket each. Shakib conceded only 27 runs in 10 overs while Mehidy gave away 41 runs.
Earlier, Bangladesh were forced to bowl first after losing the toss against West Indies in the match.
Bangladesh made one change to their previous playing XI as Mohammad Saifuddin was sidelined due to a back injury, and Abu Jayed Rahi got his ODI cap. The right-arm pacer played five tests and three T20Is before ODI debut.
The Tigers came to this match aiming a place in the final of tri-nation series. They won their first match against West Indies by eight wickets. However, the second match against Ireland was washed out due to persistent rain.
Now, another win against West Indies will help the Tigers to grab a place in the final scheduled on May 17.
