Bangladesh v West Indies, 3rd ODI, Chittagong October 18, 2011

Bangladesh win after routing West Indies for 61

135

Bangladesh 62 for 2 (Tamim 36*) beat West Indies 61 (Shakib 4-16, Nasir 2-3) by eight wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

The threat of rain loomed over gloomy Chittagong but the weather stayed clear enough for Bangladesh to demolish West Indies for their second-lowest total in one-day internationals, after which their batsmen knocked off the target of 62 in 20 overs to win the dead rubber. From 33 for 1, Bangladesh's bowlers began to hack through the West Indies line-up as nine wickets fell for 28 runs. The strong crowd that turned up despite the wetness cheered as the home side dished out retribution for the two defeats in the series, and for the humiliation in the 2011 World Cup.

West Indies had lost only two and four wickets during their victories in Mirpur but this Chittagong pitch was different. Its pace was sluggish, its bounce low and the ball did not come on to the bat. There was turn too. To add to that, rain on the eve of the match had left the outfield soggy, and shots hit along the ground lost speed quickly. Batting conditions were far from ideal. Mushfiqur Rahim won his fourth out of four tosses on the tour and put West Indies in.

To succeed, the batsmen needed tremendous patience and application, and West Indies had neither. Bangladesh's bowlers, to their credit, did not give an inch and Danza Hyatt and Kieran Powell, playing because Lendl Simmons had a back problem, struggled. They added 10 runs in six overs before Hyatt lost composure and attempted to loft Nazmul Hossain, who replaced Rubel Hossain for this game, down the ground and edged to slip.

Marlon Samuels, the scourge of Bangladesh, tried to play like he had in Mirpur. He stayed back in his crease irrespective of whether the ball was full or not and attempted to drive and steer behind point. After 14 quiet deliveries Samuels carved Shafiul Islam and holed out to Suhrawadi Shuvo at sweeper cover. West Indies were 33 for 2 in the 11th over.

Powell was the best of the batsmen, which wasn't saying much, as he played with an upright stance and used his top hand to drive straight and through the off side. He hit the only four boundaries during the mandatory Powerplay, all of them against medium-pace. Spin in the 12th over, however, was a tougher test and Powell was bowled off the second ball he faced from Nasir Hossain. The offbreak drifted into the left-hander, pitched on leg stump, and ripped across the outside edge to hit the top of off. It was the delivery of the match.

The very next ball, Nasir induced a return catch from Kieron Pollard. These were his first one-day wickets and Nasir had reduced West Indies to 34 for 4.

The innings went into free-fall thereafter. Darren Bravo edged a square drive to the keeper off Shafiul in the 13th over and Darren Sammy was lbw to Shakib Al Hasan's first ball. Shakib went on to cut through the lower order, finishing with figures of 4 for 16 as he ended the innings in the 22nd over.

Defending 62, no matter how hard the pitch and outfield was to bat on, was impossible. West Indies could have dismissed Imrul Kayes before he lofted Sammy down the ground for six, but Powell dropped a regulation chance at first slip of Kemar Roach. Kayes fell soon after, though, getting a leading edge to cover while trying to fend off a short ball from Roach. Bangladesh were 25 for 1.

Bangladesh lost Shahriar Nafees - picked ahead of Mohammed Ashraful - as well but Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur, who promoted himself to secure victory on a demanding pitch, finished the job. Tamim top scored with 36 and hit the winning runs off the last ball of the 20th over, as rain began to fall in Chittagong.

    @M_Rakibul_Islam - Banga cricket could really go places with a bit of confidence (& no Ashraful) - but bear in mind that a few key WIndies players were not playing (Gayle, Chanderpaul etc). @CandidIndian - if Banga cricket produced pitches like this all the time - they would be even worse overseas. Most non-Asians accept that the sub-continent will tend to favour spin, that's the way it should be. The characteristics of a pitch should be maintained - however, this was not a great pitch. I'm glad it was only one out of three, that's about right. That being said some of the best shots in cricket are horizontal shots - which will be almost non-existent if a pitch doesn't let pace bowlers bend their back for reward. ODI matches with 4 spinners a side is boring!

    @ Rhonda: Bangladesh did poor in the 1st 2 games due to failure of top orders. But the exclusion of ASH indicated that those performance don't show BD's capability. Tamim & Nafees r outstanding when they r in good form. If they were in form , BD would win the series instead of winning a dead rubber. The difference between BD & WI isn't huge now. And their performance vs England was good but ODI is a different format. BD achieved huge win not only for conditions but also for the weakness of Caribbeans against spin. Only Simmons & Samuel played spin very well so they won 1st 2 games. Chittagong pitch was 'notorious" due to rain, so BD shouldn't b blamed. All the cricket nations use their home advantage so nothing wrong with that.

  • Praxis on October 19, 2011, 16:56 GMT

    @CandidIndian, thanks for your sane comment which is somewhat rare on this page now. I agree what you are saying about condition. Low & slow wickets are more suited to our game & we should produce them so. All the other countries do so, so shall we. But sometimes the balance between ball & bat is lost completely & that's when the complaints are justified.

  • on October 19, 2011, 16:43 GMT

    Congratulations to Bangladesh for winning a dead rubber on a notorious pitch that even England lost on, on a day when winning the toss was the most important thing you could do. Shame on the West Indies for losing so badly with two recognized players on a side that had clearly decided winning the series meant more than going for the jugular. Bangladesh deserves praise for going for a win; West Indies deserves scorn for under-performing. But please, keep some perspective. This win is no more an indication that Bangladesh has the goods to beat any team on a normal day and is worthy of their ranking than West Indies drawing a 20/20 series against a stronger England side is a sign that they have 'finally turned the corner'. The first two wins were far too convincing for this sort of cat-calling and 'revenge' talk. Not to mention, they included half of a side that was missing for the last game.

Just because some one is downplaying BD cricket team or its players efforts doesn't mean he is indian(they don't even bear indian name). That said COngrats to BD and Wake up WI selectors.

    Pollard batting at #5 (not even for TT he would!), two of our best 3 ODI players in the last 20 yrs still in their prime dropped (Lara being the other), WI winning the 1st 2 games on the bats of 2 batters and one rested and the other unexpectedly failed. What did they expect????? Of course it had to be a fitness and discipline issue. Clearly management is at the top of their game.

  • CandidIndian on October 19, 2011, 10:06 GMT

    Not only Bangladesh but all Asian teams including India and SL have to realize that when we tour WI,SA,Eng ,NZ they make the pitches which totally suit their bowlers and batsman and its not wrong as its called home advantage.But when it comes to Asian countries we are more gracious when it comes to pitches as general perception outside subcontinent is that if the ball spins and keeps low the pitch is doctored and not fit for international cricket but if it has lots of bounce and swing its a sporting pitch.India and SL both being bit more experienced has started producing pitches which suit their players in last 3-4 years and the stats suggests that they have become almost unbeatable at home.Example is India just lost two series in last 4 years at home and won the rest.So plan for Bangladesh should be simple , produce pitches like this one in every match and you will not see WI crossing even 150 once in whole series.Good job Bangladesh ,produce spinning tracks in Tests too and thrash WI

    Hey DATF bro, just let them know about last summers Bangladesh tour of England. Bangladesh may be unable to win or draw any of the test matches. But they put up much better fight India in this summer in England. Even Tamim Iqbal Khan was declared test batsman of the year by Wiseden and they also mention in their magazine that the way Tamim slaughtered English bowlers last, it hasn't happened for almost 10 years, not even any Australian batsman was close to as dominated as Tamim were specially in test matches in last years tour of England. And Bangladesh also did put England on shame when they beat them convincingly in one ODI. Did India even win any practice match there in this tour??? I don't know why people bring India in this article?? that's why i was just making my point of view if any one was wondering why i am talking about India? BTW, I wish that 1st match of world cup, Bangladesh Vs India, was in Ctg as it's becoming the luckiest ground for Bangladesh.Congrats 2 Bangladesh.

  • cricsavvy on October 19, 2011, 4:28 GMT

    @Arifur Rahman Khadem - FYI Sunderbans spreads across both West Bengal and BD. By the way there are around 1500 Bengal tigers in West Bengal and just 200 in BD. So GANGULY is the original tiger!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The most shocking thing was that the 'Tigers' played without Razzak and Ashraful(although this was a blessing).................but expected more from nafees

  • QTS_ on October 19, 2011, 4:05 GMT

    After having played Zimbabwe so frequently over the past six years, Bangladesh might think of playing West Indies often. Defeats might be more in numbers than victories, but contest can be expected frequently. Maybe Bangladesh-West Indies-Zimbabwe tri-series played at all three countries by turn will be well enjoyed.

  • on October 19, 2011, 3:59 GMT

    This is really wonderful cricket by tigers. We are proud of them. The way they fought yesterday was impresive and whole nation are in joyous mood to watch the beautiful game. I will never say this is a revenge of last WC cricket match played between the same opponent. But we are keen to see this kind of cricket again and again. We have no other games to be proud like cricket, since we are playing in elite group of world cricket. We expect much from the guys. Pls show your responsibility as you can. Thanks for the selector to exclude ASH from the team. Let other guys chance to perform, but never ASH. Kapali should have given more chance. He is a real talent. Once he will play a good knock, noone can stop him. Nevertheless he is an allrounder that may bring more flexible in the team. New blood is always welcome in BD cricket. I am very hopeful that very soon new masters will come to uplift our glory in the world cricket which one ourfanatic choice just now. Pway for the boys.

  • on October 19, 2011, 3:51 GMT

    @IronCobra: If you see the performance of India in England and performance of Pakistan then you may prefer four team instead of six. Better, allow more and more time for BD and more better to avoid negative comments.

  • DATF on October 19, 2011, 3:39 GMT

    There are people always suffering by inferiority complex......even if no body talks about recent happenings in series at England for India, they think they have to defend before anybody talks. No body says Bangladesh is a better team than India, but they are afraid if anybody dare to say so....ridiculous.... if world cricket is restricted to 6 better teams....what will happen if there is also a provision for eliminating a team immediately if they are whitewashed in such a bad manner like it happened recently for India in England! What is wrong in calling a team Tiger? 15 years back during West Indies days...India could easily be called "Mice"........now people also dare to talk about eliminating West Indies!!!!....let's think about the total years India spent in cricket and since when Bangladesh is playing...!!! We all should have the mind to cheer new teams and their growth.....

  • Balb on October 19, 2011, 3:30 GMT

    If West Indies, Gibson, Richie Richardson or Sammy wants to move up on the points table, why rest Rampaul, Simmons and Bishoo? Isn't this clear enough to see where West Indies problems are? The series is over but it was easier to make the changes in the second match and based on the results strenghten your team to fight for a series win. But work for recognition upwards, you always field your best team. Is this too much to understand. Keep up the good work guys, you will be number one again by year 25000.

  • on October 19, 2011, 3:19 GMT

    well it looks like it is a crime to celebrate when we win a match...yes i agree some of us bangladeshi fans go over the top and say few things, but that goes to all countries and their supporters. why it bothers anyone if we are celebrating????? specially indian fans they seems to be kind of angry everytime bangladesh wins. well if you have access to internet than read the history of first 50 years of indian cricket. 35 win out of 196 test matches!!!!!!!!!!! where you are now took 50 years to build up. i did not made it up thats history. any other sport specially football some teams never win world cup but no one worries or talks about take them off the list.you talk about make cricket global but don't like the new teams win. i know bangladesh will lose more games in coming years and those who keep saying bangladesh should not play test cricket than that should be applied to other teams who hardly win these days and get away because of their previous records...

  • DieHardBang on October 19, 2011, 3:17 GMT

    Well done "Tigers".......................Once again you guy's just prove that you are capable of doing things like this (Rattled WI for 61). Now just do this kind of stuff more often just make it your habit. Only then no disgraceful fan of cricket will dare to raise voice against you!!! Congrats......Musfiq & Co.

  • on October 19, 2011, 2:35 GMT

    61 all out was definitely disappointing from the Windies.Having won the first 2 odis was expecting them to win the 3rd odi too.But no need to panic for one single defeat.Just put this behind and hope Windies do well in the Tests.

  • on October 19, 2011, 2:29 GMT

    Cricsavvy, It's even funnier to read your comments, mate. Even though tigers are found in other jungles, the origin was in Sundarban, the most naturally beautiful mangrove forest in the world as listed, with the largest population of Royal Bengal Tigers. Nothing needs to be created by oneself as the history tells all. So please do read some history before making weird comments which people may just be laughing at.

  • on October 19, 2011, 0:46 GMT

    Congratulations. I now believe that there are some active tigers in Sundarban (Mangrove Forest) who are capable of destroying a team like West Indies. Bangladesh have now taken revenges on all the losses to West Indies in the past including the one in the World Cup. I pray for you guys so that you continue damaging more teams like India and Australia. Well done tigers.

  • cricsavvy on October 18, 2011, 23:47 GMT

    It is funny to read all the BD fans' posts as if they have the WC. By the way who gave the name "Tigers" to BD team? I think should be the bD fans' own creation. It is like belittling the majestic animal as one reader mentioned. Bengal tigers are also found in Bengal, Nepal and Bhutan!!!

  • BigDataIsAHoax on October 18, 2011, 23:34 GMT

    It's pathetic that teams like WI and BD play international cricket. What has ICC done in 100 years or whatever number of years it has existed? Why don't we have more than six teams of good quality competing against each other - India/Australia/England/South-Africa/Pakistan/Sri-Lanka. NZ is horrible these days, WI well forget it (their best batsman doesn't care about test cricket), BD is utterly useless. They have been given uncountable opportunities, yet they are a total disgrace. Shame cricket is no match to football.

  • on October 18, 2011, 23:04 GMT

  • on October 18, 2011, 22:50 GMT

    That was very Shamefull performance, i am sorry but we should not be bowled out by Bangladesh for 61, heads need to roll sammy and ottis needs to go, even though we won the series it is still a dis grace, we need to be going forward and sorry ottis and sammy are not the men lead us there, i think that Ramdin was very impresive as captain in the first one day, i think he should get a chance to show what he is made off

  • northumbriannomad on October 18, 2011, 21:59 GMT

    It may have been a dead rubber but before the game WI captain stated emphatically that they were going for the third win to make it a clean sweep. So the Wi did NOT take it lightly.

  • InnocentGuy on October 18, 2011, 20:28 GMT

    @abs.liton, that is adorable, but be real dude/dudette. BD have been playing cricket for over 30 years now - technically BD's first international match was in the 1979 WC. And have 11 years of Test status. It's okay to lose a few games, but even after so many years, BD is still considered a minnow. Contrast that with SL. They were given Test status in 1982. They were WC winners by 1996. Do you think BD will become anywhere close to being a non-minnow, let alone world beaters, in the next, say, 10 years? I don't think so. BCCI disrespecting BD doesn't change the fact that the fundamentals of cricket in BD are flawed. BD plays cricket with passion, agreed, but with little to no technique/strategy/vision.

  • on October 18, 2011, 20:24 GMT

  • on October 18, 2011, 19:46 GMT

    BD shud not get too much carried away with this consolidation win..mind it, It was a Dead Rubber match so W.Indies took it lightly and they paid the price for it..and also the pitch and the condition totally suited BD bowlers and they utilized the condition very well and also W.IND team hav da record of falling into pieces...so very gud Bowling by BD but Still u hv to carry this form series after series..Losing against Weak ZIM and W.IND team is not acceptable if a team is trying to move upward...BD has a long way to go..they cant win when WIN is needed most..today was a Non pressure game and they played well...

  • Third_Gear on October 18, 2011, 19:20 GMT

    @Grey Patch : For how manyy years u will be with this question ? During Brian Lara time u were saying bcoz Lara did not click in 2009 whitewash against BD it was depleted WI now its WICB 11. Leaving all these funny excuses u should focus on improvement otherwise ur child will become grandfather but ur cause will remain stand still. When a board setup their national team its done, who is there in the team or not its an internal matter.

  • Coraline_Jones on October 18, 2011, 19:19 GMT

    Gr8 Bangladesh ... go ahead ... itz a known fact that they have potential and they can do it. but u need to keep winning consistently to make ppl believe. @ G.F.Hamim Indians always support Bangladesh cricket and players like Shakib Al Hasan are playing for ipl teams. that says thet Bangladesh has very good players. I personally feel that Tamim is an excellent player but always let ppl down. I still remember him coming down the track against Zaheer Khan and Sending the ball into orbit in one match against India. Wot happened to Mashrafe Mortaza. Hope as Brian Lara once said, Bangladesh will be a team to watch in near future.

    who is the brains behind WI cricket? they need to select a balanced side.here goes. four specialist bowlers (sammy not included,not good enough) wicket keeper,one allrounder (samuels) and five specialist batsmen(sammy not included). this will be a balanced team,not the team they are playing with at the present time. they have 3 specialist batsmen,wicket keeper1 geniune all rounder (samuels) 4 specialist bowlers and here is the tragedy 3 half rounders that should only play domestic cricket. should the WI continue with the same group in india ,they will be trashed and embarassed.lets see what the board and selkectors do then,will they resign.no brain selectors and board.

  • on October 18, 2011, 18:51 GMT

    we are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we can do every thing. after 2015 we will be no1 team and we will invite india

  • abs.liton on October 18, 2011, 18:43 GMT

    @ mrgupta: I think u are Indian. Anyway, listen my friend, if u try to compare Bangladesh with other test nations on most winning matches then u should remember that India has been playing cricket after their independence 1947 that I think. U have participated in all world cups as well. On the contrary Bangladesh is new test playing country who has been playing for more than a decade. That means our history of cricket is not more than yours. For that, Bangladesh is going to win more matches day by day though Bangladesh have already lost many matches more than winning. Whatever BD is going ahead despite criticizing. But look at ur board who has decided that they will not invite BD upto 2020 in India. It is proved that India doesn't know how to respect other countries. Cricket is just a game and entertainment but India shows their arrogance by not to invite BD. Listen one day BD will also be a better team like yours. Then we won't behave like yours that India behaved with BD. Be wel pal

  • on October 18, 2011, 18:33 GMT

    4 those who r commenting against Bangladesh team's wins, and mentioning as "lambs instead of tigers" r actually totally frustrated about their own team's performance and r showing how much mean they can be by heart to praise even a good thing :P It is better to stay on the ground and not to spit towards the sky. Cause on the another given day it will eventually fall upon u, like the recent England tour 10-0 defeat :)

  • Navid_Hossain on October 18, 2011, 18:09 GMT

    Aaahh... sweet revenge....

  • on October 18, 2011, 18:09 GMT

    I'm a Bangladeshi & I know, there are some crazy fans of Bangladesh. They do this, because, they think it will show their love for our country.. But, we don't want to hurt anybody or don't underestimate others l.. Because, we know our limitations. We know, our history of cricket is not very old. We know, team like India or others will be much better for us, but, we have courage to beat a better team & we have already proved that ! We are still learning cricket & we are improving too.. We praise good cricket and hope that the BIG BOSSES will be happy to appreciate an emerging cricketing nation... We also welcome positive criticism which will help to improve us...but who likes ignorance??? So, we expect good behavior from the "cricket intellectuals" from other countries & hope they will recall their memories before leaving a comment.... as for example, someone questioned about series win vs a test playing country except Zimbabwe... Ans: We did it vs New Zealand & WI in last 2 years..

  • on October 18, 2011, 18:07 GMT

    @g.sri - u didnt even watch da match nd ur telling dat bd win bcoz wi played a bad cricket.. SHAME ON U!! BD WON BECAUSE THEY PLAYED GREAT!!!! they got much turn than w.i nd bd batted really well..

  • on October 18, 2011, 18:02 GMT

    I believe the only thing missing in team Bangladesh is each player forgets their responsibility while they play. This is really a matter for any team at this stage. After loosing of 1st 2 matches they realize that they should play with responsibility. However today's match was exceptional.

  • on October 18, 2011, 17:38 GMT

    As a West Indian I wish to congratulate Bangladesh for a great bowling performance. I have nothing to say about the conditions because to me a loss is a loss no matter what. We don't look for excuses. We learn from our defeats and we try to come back stronger. Also the WC is now in the past so this talk about "pay back" by some Bangladesh fans means nothing to us. We in the Caribbean have bigger issues to deal with, like for example a CRICKET STADIUM being constructed for the 2007 WC that is still not completed and we are in 2011. Finally I wish to let Bangladesh public know that you have our full support in maintaining your test status with ICC. We in the WI know what it is to be marginalized.

  • on October 18, 2011, 17:35 GMT

    Why bother about what others are saying. I am supporting my own team, coz they need it. Every win is like a world cup win for us. Coz each win inspires us, unite us as a nation.

  • abhyudayj on October 18, 2011, 17:26 GMT

    congralution Bangladesh for this victory and start winning the matches consistently.this has ability to beat top side,they had beaten newzealand 5-0(5ODI's),england and mant top teams.

  • simonviller on October 18, 2011, 17:23 GMT

  • on October 18, 2011, 17:22 GMT

    Chittagong has always been Tigers lucky ground. New Zealand, Zimbabwe, England all have fallen to the great might of Tigers and ZA ground! But this win is more of a statement that what any team can do to their opponent, Bangladesh can do the same on any given day...

    Good luck to tigers for the upcoming test series.

    GO TIGERS!

    Cricket eventually won this game. Indeed it was a good day for Bangladesh and unfortunately a bad day for WI. But I'm surprized to see most of the comments from our neighboring Indian friends. They hardly praised Bangladesh and their efforts today! Rather undermining BD with negative criticism. Please friends, come up with big heart.

  • on October 18, 2011, 16:44 GMT

    nadim guruz did you forgot that india is the world champion they won many matches they routed bangladesh by 87 runs your team has not won a single test against many teams your team has not won any major tournament first think about state of your cricket board and cricket team then say something about any other team

  • on October 18, 2011, 16:44 GMT

    This win is less of a fluke than India's world cup win . India clearly demonstrated their quality in England by winning 0 matches out of 10 there .

    Take away Bangladesh's test status . how dare we , beating England in England last year . @Nitin Bose

  • on October 18, 2011, 16:40 GMT

    @IndiazeN: Humble!! Ahem Ahem!! Would you please kindly look at your own team's "world beater" attitude before commenting on others! Or do i need to remind you again of the glorious England tours you guys are just coming off...Mind you Own business first please.

  • Srini_Indian on October 18, 2011, 16:39 GMT

    Well, Bangla fans are talking like they have won the world cup. Bangladesh is a mediocre team who wins once in a blue moon from their opponents poor play!!!

  • AvmanM on October 18, 2011, 16:36 GMT

    Haha. Payback for the World Cup.

  • maniacrai on October 18, 2011, 16:32 GMT

    Not quite a dead rubber as most people seem to be proclaiming.. WI needed this win to get ODI points and 4 points were on the offer. They are 9 points behind NZ. This was a pretty important match for both teams even thought it might seem like a dead rubber to some.

    Let's give credit where its due and not jump with unnecessary criticisms for either team.

    Good job BD. Good come back after two heavy defeats. Shows character and desire to win which lacked before. Definitely an improvement. 61 All out is just an added bonus. Enjoy it! :D

    WI looks like a much improved team. Their fielding and bowling has been superb. Looking forward to the test series!

  • on October 18, 2011, 16:29 GMT

    Bangladesh should play at least the first two matches of every home series in Chittagong, its working well for us! and....... SWEET SWEET REVENGE! :)

    i am very happy abut this matter. Bec... We r know

  • MijanurRahman on October 18, 2011, 15:05 GMT

    This is more than a consolation victory. Bangladesh's series loss is only due to the absence of selfconfidence and the ghost of 58. The two teams are now on almost equal terms. Besides, Tamim and Sakib passed their test of worth.

  • on October 18, 2011, 15:03 GMT

    wow...wow...wow!!! i can't believe it...when it almost seems dat Bangladesh has not got any more fuel in their tanks...they come out blazing out of nowhere and surprise the whole world! fantastic performance...truly unbelievable!! Shakib should definitely be renamed the captain of the team...he deserves it...

  • rayinto on October 18, 2011, 14:57 GMT

    This is what happens when experience is ignored! Dr Hilaire and Mt. Gibson do not learn from past mistakes.It is apparent now that they never will. They do not have the capacity to. Had the beat team been selected, this would never have happened.

  • on October 18, 2011, 14:50 GMT

    Congratulation Bangladesh Cricket Team.....Best of luck for the future.

  • on October 18, 2011, 14:49 GMT

    cud hav bowled them out below 58....gr8 to c my home ground becoming a fortress for our team, we cud hav won the 2nd odi as well.....

  • on October 18, 2011, 14:42 GMT

    Congratulation to Bangladesh. I think that Bangladesh should always use their home condition pitch to play with any visitors. In fact, they did it for now and showed how they could deliver for visitor. All country in cricked world always try to utilize their home condition pitch and its a natural style. The perfect example for this now England vs. India where Mighty(!) Lions are struggling. But unfortunately, Bangladesh don't follow it........thats very foolish move. I hope that Bangladesh will use all their tools to face any visitors but Bangladesh shouldn't forget to bring Experienced foreign CURATORS. Besides, Bangladesh should make some bouncy wicket too for their own practices. Then they will learn how to handle with bouncy wicket and it will help them to play good cricket when they visit other country.

  • nadimguruz on October 18, 2011, 14:31 GMT

    Terrible display from West Indies, abject performance, what would I do if I was planning India's upcoming itinerary with an OZ tour approaching, somewhere we have never won a series. I know lets play West Indies for 3 tests and 5 ODIs???? BCCI start planning for the no1 test team again and not flogging the team around India against one of the Also rans.

  • on October 18, 2011, 14:12 GMT

    for them who calling it a dead rubber and else other mean words to take the credit away from the winning side ... 61 all out will b always on the scorebook and records book. i'm sure not much will it do calling it a dead rubber. its Windies's 2nd lowest total with inform Samuels and 'Superman' Pollard in it. Gayle is too fortunate not making into this squad... face it

  • Davgood on October 18, 2011, 14:11 GMT

    I saw some interesting dismissals in this match, Samuels hitting out without reason, Pollard hitting back a gentle catch, Ramdin playing the wrong line, Russel hitting back, Sammy also playing wrong line, strange, strange, strange.

  • on October 18, 2011, 14:10 GMT

  • on October 18, 2011, 14:08 GMT

    if you read through the comments, there is one interesting trend you can see. almost all (actually all) the comments against BD team comes from Indians!! Is it because of the loss in WC 2007 that changed the indian team forever? why so much hate towards BD? other countries like England, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa dont make any mean comments against Bangladesh. Its funny how India begs the supports of the Asian teams like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka for matters like ICL and others but Indian fans thrash the same countries all the time. how ungrateful!

  • ostad on October 18, 2011, 14:05 GMT

  • DarindaUK on October 18, 2011, 13:56 GMT

    Congratulation Tigers for giving your best shot. Hope you'll keep trying to improve your performance on the TEST series as well. It's not about how many runs you score, but to stay in the crease longer and as a team to be able to play 120 overs per innings. Please keep Ashraful out of the series. I think he needs to play more domestic games and try to regain his position in the National Team. Looking forward to a competetive test result. I hope BD Bowlers will be able to ball the WI batsman out, but then again, looking at the first two ODI's, WI Batsman were invincible. Again best wishes to Tigers to play as a team and not for individual name and fame for our Shunar (golden) Bangladesh.

  • Masking_Tape on October 18, 2011, 13:56 GMT

    We still lost the series. And won a dead-rubber... let's not jump around too much. Important test series coming up. If they don't put up a strong fight, they will lose that too.

  • on October 18, 2011, 13:53 GMT

    congrats to them for their outstanding performance.......tiger rulezzzzz

  • on October 18, 2011, 13:52 GMT

    When Bangladesh lost to West Indies in the WC many people made degratory comments about the Bangladesh team. Now that we have dismissed the West Indies side in a similar fashion I'd just like to say that it is not a matter of Bangladesh being a very bad side or West Indies being a very bad side or vice versa. Its just cricket, and this can happen even to the best of teams.

  • motiur_rahman on October 18, 2011, 13:33 GMT

    Ladies and gents , lets be very careful , Ashraful was not selected , Bangladesh won . Everybody is happy ; now just see how Bangladesh board slides Ashraful again into the national team , don't close your eyes , else you will miss it . As for BCB , please give Sharier Nafees a fair chance , he has the ability to be consistent and he already proved it once . Stick with this guy for couple of games , please .

  • LabMan on October 18, 2011, 13:17 GMT

    Wow what a dramatic turn of events. West Indies are so susceptible to spin, a turning wicket and we loose it.

    Well done Bangladesh. Tough luck guys I like to see the fight in the field though.

    Congrats to Keiron Powell we see the potential unfortunately undone by the best ball of the match how unlucky. Looking for big things in the future

    Go Windies

  • on October 18, 2011, 13:13 GMT

    Peoples, who want to sack BD from test status, should now decide to get back their words. I think BD cricket board would have make the Dhaka pitch as like as Ctg pitch. But i always see that Dhaka pitch is being prepared to support the visiting team. Boards patriotism is questionable. Thanks to George Binoy for the nice report.

    Today shows that W.I are along way from moving up.W.I will be able to win some games but the skill and personnel needed to win consistently are not there.Sammy was praising the coach for the wins.I did not hear him blaming the coach for the loss. Management needs to get the best players on this team.looks to me like Bravo is going backwards.There is no need to wreck this young mans career.Give him a break or get players who can take pressure of him. The test matches will be difficult.

  • ramps_wi on October 18, 2011, 13:01 GMT

    well we can accept this as being part of the building process, experience apparently does not worth anything in this WI team anymore. Sammy fanatics keeps saying that he doe not have the best men under him, but true leadership is about being motivational. THe capatin has to take full responsibility for the perfomance of this team because it comes with the job.

  • mrgupta on October 18, 2011, 12:58 GMT

    @abs.liton: Sorry but i am a bit confused. Few Months back just before the WC2011 most BD players, Coach and Fans were of the opinion that BD is expected to defeat WI and that any BD win cannot be considered an upset now, why sudden change of heart? Also, by frequent wins did you mean 3 wins out 40 ODI played against Top 6 teams which includes no wins against Ind, SA, Aus or Pak since Jan 2008?

    very unfortunate but true, the commentary of Nitin Sundar or any other are very very partial, any win o ftigers are nothing but ""the oppositions fault and defeats are "spots of cricket " are the typicall attiude, more over at the end of the game "the comment about stone throwing" is definitely sign of pathetically mean mentality...

    I hope there is some one in CRICINFO to look into the matter...

    or am I wrong?

  • on October 18, 2011, 12:37 GMT

    I totally agree with you abs.liton. I hate this attitude as well. When Bangladesh loses, it's always 'take away their test status! They don't belong!' and when they win there're always excuses like 'it's a fluke' or 'they only won because the top players were not playing (for example Gayle in this case)'. Bangladesh can only beat the team that's put in front of them...yes most of the time they don't perform up to their abilities and make the same mistakes over and over again...but encouragement would be nice when they actually apply their talent to the fullest and win, like they did today.

  • on October 18, 2011, 12:35 GMT

    When Bangladesh defeated by any country of cricket then criticizers of other test playing countries criticize Bangladesh and they ask ICC to take off the test status of Bangladesh. And when BD win over any country then they use to say it is fluke win of BD. Now I wanna say to those persons, see us, we are also going to be same status of yours. Now we frequently win. One day we will win series frequently over other test playing countries. I think WI is obviously a better team than Bangladesh. And Bangladesh improves day by day. WI put us in 58 all out. And now BD put them in 61 all out. So it is not fault of BD or WI. It is cricket , it is just a game... anything can happen in a game. Anyway, I like to thank Tigers cricketers for their outstanding winning over WI.

    Well done Bangladesh! A sweet revenge of that 58 in last World-cup. Shakib gained his career best bowling in this match & showed his class to cricket world again. No doubt, he is one of the best left arm spinning all-rounder in World cricket history.

    How many matches does bangladesh won in last 2 years against test playing nations except Zimbabwe, this will answer all the questions of Bangladeshis.
