Bangladesh seal final berth

Bangladesh yesterday confirmed their berth in the tri-series final in Ireland thanks to another dominant victory over West Indies in Malahide. After a disciplined Bangladesh bowling attack restricted West Indies to 247 for 9, Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim struck fluent half-centuries and dominated the chase as the Tigers sealed victory with 16 balls to spare.

Receiving a solid start from Soumya and Tamim, who combined for a 54-run stand, Shakib joined Soumya to take the side to 104. Although Soumya (54) followed Shakib (29) shortly, Mushfiq and Mithun ensured that the Tigers side don’t get into any trouble.

Mushfiq smashed 63 from 73 balls before departing, while Mithun parted on 43 off 53 balls. After the duo left, Mahmudullah (30) steered the side ashore. Earlier, in the face of disciplined bowling attack from Bangladesh bowlers specially spinners-Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan Miraj, West Indies compiled 247 for nine in 50 overs largely thanks to Shai Hope (87) and Jason Holder (62) in their Tri-nation second leg match in Dublin yesterday.

West Indian batsmen struggled against Bangladesh spin bowlers, who made 130 more dot balls with the pace of the pace bowlers. And so, they became aggressive more on the pacers and lost their wickets to them. Mustafizur Rahman and Mashrafe Bin Mortaza picked up the bulk of the wickets than spinners. The duo grabbed seven wickets, four of which was claimed by Mustafiz and three by Mashrafe. Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan Miraj snapped up one wicket each

for the Tigers. West Indies opted to bat after winning the toss on Malahide’s track and lost their first wicket of Sunil Ambris to Mashrafe Bin Mortaza. Ambris was departed after scoring 23.

On-song Shai Hope, who plundered back-to-back centuries in where scintillating 170 against Ireland and 109 against Bangladesh, was looked to hit his third ODI century but fell short of 13 runs.

The 25-year-old batsman made a cautious start after losing his opening partner Ambris, with whom he slammed a record partnership of 365 against Ireland in the tournament opener where his stake was148.

Hope attempted to make a gritty resistance with fellow batsman and hit a string of partnerships including a successful 100 for the fifth-wicket stand with captain Jason Holders en route to his gritty 87.

The right-handed opening batsman played 108 deliveries to make 87 that contained half-a-dozen boundaries and a six.

Just eight runs later, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza sent Holder back to the dug-out unlike Hope in successive overs. But Holders brought up his fifty before his dismissal. He cracked 76-ball 62 laced with three fours and a six.    

Mustafiz then put the brakes further on West Indies batsmen and got rid of Asley Nurse and debutant Raymon Reifer in his ninth over and finished his bowling with the figures of 43-4.

Debutant fast-bowler Abu Jayed Rahi, who played his first ODI in place of Mohammed Saifuddin , bowled nine overs and conceded 56 runs but remained wicketless.
