Bangladesh sealed the three-match ODI series against the West Indies after winning the second game convincingly by a seven-wicket margin in Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium Friday.

Like the first ODI, the hosts had to chase another low total and they accomplished it as they reached their target of 149 in just 33.2 overs to clinch the first series that they are playing after a hiatus of over 10 months due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

All-rounder Shakib al Hasan was unbeaten on 43 from 50 balls with four boundaries while wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim was not out at the other end with nine.

Skipper Tamim Iqbal and opener Liton Das gave a steady start to the hosts as they scored 30 runs before the latter departed.

Liton was impressive during his short stay at the crease and played some well timed shots to make 22 off 24 balls with four fours.

But he got out after becoming set as he was trapped in front by left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein in the fifth ball of the sixth over.

No 3 batsman Nazmul Hossain Shanto failed to score big in pursuit of the below-par target once again as he made 17 from 26 deliveries.

Later Tamim picked up his 48th ODI half-century as he faced 75 deliveries and struck three fours and a six. 

But in the very next ball, the left-hander was caught by wicket-keeper Joshua da Silva against seamer-allrounder Raymond Reifer. 

The score was 109 for three then. 

From there on, two experienced campaigners Shakib and Mushfiq drove the side home safely. 

Earlier, stand-in Windies captain Jason Mohammed won the toss and elected to bat first.

The weather was bright and sunny at the home of cricket in Mirpur but the Calypso top-order struggled again, like the first ODI, and Bangladesh bowlers kept the run rate under three in the first 10 overs.

Left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman initiated the early breakthrough as he picked up the wicket of opening batsman Sunil Ambris in the fifth over.

The West Indies scored just 22 runs in their first 10 overs for the loss of one wicket.

Later, their middle-order struggled yet again against the Bangladesh bowling attack, particularly the spinners.

The visitors could neither up the tempo or keep wickets intact and in the end folded for another poor total on the board.

The Windies lost three wickets in the 14th and 15th over, two in the 14th bowled by player of the match Mehedi Hasan Miraz and one against Shakib in the 15th, and were reduced to 39/4 in 15 overs.

Rovman Powell scored a handy 41-run innings in the lower middle-order to take the score past 140 as the West Indies were eventually all out for 148 in 43.4 overs.

Off-spinner Miraz finished the innings with his career-best bowling figure in ODIs, taking four wickets conceding just 25 runs in 9.4 overs. 

Shakib picked up two wickets while Mustafizur, who leaked only 15 runs in eight overs with three maidens, returned with two wickets as well. 

The third and final match of the series will be played in Chittagong’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium Monday.
