• Bangladesh hammer West Indies

    A clinical bowling performance eased Bangladesh to a comfortable six-wicket victory over the West Indies in the opening ODI on Wednesday.

    Fielding a fairly inexperienced side for the three-match series, the West Indies batsmen were put to the sword in Dhaka.

    Batting first, they were bowled out for only 122 within 36 overs with the returning Shakib Al Hasan claiming four wickets for only eight runs in seven overs, while Hasan Mahmud added three of his own.

    It took the hosts 33 overs to reach their target with captain Tamin Iqbal top-scoring with 44. Akeal Hosein performed the best of the West Indies bowlers, though, picking up three wickets of his own.

    The second ODI will get under way on Friday before the series concludes on Monday.
