Spinners💫 & 💪Tamim Give Bangladesh 🇧🇩 Series Win🎉
Bangladesh 202/2 (Tamim 81*, Soumya 80) beat West Indies 198/9 (Hope 108*, Mehidy 4-29) by 8 wickets
Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal chose the scenic route to Bangladesh’s eight-wicket win over West Indies in Sylhet to clinch the three-match ODI series 2-1. Soumya’s attacking 80 was complemented by Tamim’s unbeaten 81, which came after Mehidy Hasan dipped his offbreaks to perfection in a career-best bowling performance.
It is Bangladesh’s eighth bilateral series win (out of 12) since the 2015 World Cup, with two of those now coming against West Indies this year. Shai Hope’s unbeaten century was West Indies’ only moment of happiness who have now lost both Tests and ODI series in Bangladesh, a first for any major side touring the country.
On their way to the big win, Bangladesh first sparked a batting collapse during the middle overs as West Indies lost three wickets for three runs in 22 balls. They slipped from 96 for 2 in the 23rd over to 99 for 5 in the 26th. Hope, who made an unbeaten 108 playing the full 50 overs, had to rely on the lower order to reach his fourth ODI hundred, but it was hardly going to take the control out of Bangladesh’s grip.
Tamim then did what an experienced batsman should do in a 199-run chase. He batted sensibly, while Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar blasted the bowlers at the other end.
