Bangladesh set 298-run target for West Indies

Bangladesh set 298 runs target for West Indies in the final ODI of the three-match series at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Monday.

Tigers' opener Tamim Iqbal scored 64 runs facing 80 balls with three boundaries and an over boundary while Mushfiqur Rahim scored the same from 55 balls with four boundaries and two over boundaries.

Mahmudullah also scored 64 from 43 balls with 3 fours and 3 sixes.

Besides, Shakib Al Hasan scored 51 runs for Bangladesh.

On the other hand, West Indies bowlers Alzarri Joseph and Raymon Reifer took two wickets each.

Earlier, West Indies stand-in captain Jason Mohammed won the toss and elected to field first.

Bangladesh so far won the first two matches with ease-beating the visitors by a six-wicket and seven-wicket margin at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka to take an unassailable 2-0 lead. Bangladesh took the number of series victory against West Indies to five by clinching the ongoing series.

Bolstered by their absolute dominance, Bangladesh is expected another easy win against the tourists, whose batsmen looked utterly vulnerable against the home side bowlers.

The two sides had already played 40 ODIs, among which Bangladesh won 17 in contrast of Caribbean’s 21 and two matches fetched no result. The victory in the second ODI was Bangladesh’s seventh in a row against the Caribbean.
