Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal hinted changes in the third and final ODI of the series against the West Indies.

Tamim’s indication came after his side registered a seven-wicket win in the second and penultimate ODI against the visitors at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka Friday.

Bangladesh with the win have bagged a hat-trick of series win against the Caribbean side.

Bangladesh were asked to field first and scenes were similar to that of the first ODI Wednesday as the West Indies batters struggled against the home team’s bowling attack.

The touring side posted 148 before getting all-out with off-spinner Mehedi Hasan Miraz leading the way for the Bangladesh bowlers grabbing four wickets conceding 25 runs in 9.4 overs.

In the chase, Tamim led from the front with his 76-ball 50, while all-rounder Shakib al Hasan remained unbeaten on 43 to take Bangladesh to the shore with exactly 100 balls left in the innings.

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.

"It was nice to spend some time in the middle. There's a lot of hunger in the dressing room. Everyone wants to do well. There's a healthy competition going on,” said Tamim after securing his first series win as full-time Bangladesh ODI skipper.

Left-handed batsman Tamim was relaxed to share the possibility of having players on the bench get some action in the third and final ODI.

Bangladesh will hunt a series sweep against the Caribbeans in the Chittagong ODI at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium Monday.

“[Looking ahead to Chittagong] No it won't be a worrying sign. Everyone should get an opportunity to play. Players like Taskin (Ahmed), Saifuddin have not got a spot in the XI yet. All the guys who did not get an opportunity to play are capable of doing well. I am sure we will have some changes in the third ODI, and let's hope whoever comes in does well,” said Tamim.

Both Bangladesh and the West Indies will travel to the port city Saturday. 

Alongside the ODI, they will also play the first game of the two-match Test series at the hometown of the Bangladesh ODI captain.
