Bangladesh, on Wednesday, defeated West Indies in the second ODI to record their biggest win away from home. The clinical nine-wicket win helped the visitors clinch the series and took an unassailable 2-0 lead with one game to play. This was Bangladesh’s sixth bilateral triumph of their last seven series.

After having opted to bowl, Bangladesh knocked West Indies over for a mere 108, with the hosts yet again surrendering against Bangladesh’s top-quality spin attack. Mehidy Hasan with 4/29 in eight overs and Nasum Ahmed with 3/19 in 10 made Caribbean batters dance to their tunes. Keemo Paul, with an unbeaten 25 off 24 deliveries down the order, helped the hosts breach the 100-run mark.

In response, the tourists gunned down the paltry target inside 21 overs, with captain Tamim Iqbal smashing an undefeated half-century. Tamim and his opening partner Najmul Hossain Shanto (20) put on a strong 48-run solid stand before Shanto was removed by Gudakesh Motie.

The Bangladesh skipper then combined with Liton Das to finish proceedings in 20.4 overs. Tamim remained unbeaten on 50 off 62, while Liton was 32 not out. After the contest, Tamim said that they were ‘hungry’ to capture the ODI series against West Indies following their terrible performance in Tests and T20Is.

“Everyone was hungry to win. We failed despite trying in Test and T20Is, so we tried to win in the ODIs. And this was not only me, but all the other 15 members were the same, and probably it is the result of their wish (to win),” said Tamim.
