• Bangladesh whitewash West Indies

    Another dominant performance helped Bangladesh secure a 3-0 series whitewash over the West  Indies in Chattogram on Monday.

    With nothing but pride to play for in the final ODI, the men from the Caribbean fell well short again as their inexperienced team was hammered by the Tigers.

    Captain Tamim Iqbal again led with the bat with 64 at the top of the order before Shakib al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullahal all added half-centuries of their own, Bangladesh posting 297-6 in their 50 overs.

    The West Indies batsmen struggled to form any worthy partnerships and were completely undone by a clinical Bangladesh bowling display.

    Mohammad Saifuddin claimed figures of 3-51, while Mustafizur Rahman and Mehidy Hasan Miraz added two scalps each to dismiss the West Indies for only 177.

    The 120-run victory all but summed up Bangladesh’s dominance in the series. A two-match Test series now awaits the teams, starting on 3 February.
