West Indies in Bangladesh ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Bangladesh v West Indies

West Indies won by 8 wickets (with 44 balls remaining)

Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes are opening the batting as usual. Ravi Rampaul will open the bowling.

1.20 pm The pitch for the first ODI wasn't very spin-friendly. Today's surface is the one that was used for the Twenty20. It could get slower as the day progresses. It's Ravi Rampaul's birthday today.

1.00 pm Mushfiqur Rahim has won another toss, his third of this series, but this time Bangladesh will bat. They had chosen to bowl in the T20 and the first ODI. Bangladesh are playing an unchanged XI.

Darren Sammy went out to toss, so he's recovered from his upset stomach. Sammy's come back in for Adrian Barath, who had a hamstring problem in the first ODI and retired hurt.

48.2

48.3

Sammy to Nasir Hossain, 1 run, slower ball bowled full outside off stump, Nasir drives off the front foot through cover to reach a terrific half-century

48.4

Sammy to Shafiul Islam, OUT, fuller length around off stump, Shafiul slogs, aiming for the long-on boundary. He skies the ball in the air towards cover and Bishoo takes the catch

Shafiul Islam c Bishoo b Sammy 4 (13m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Rubel Hossain is the last man, but Nasir is on strike.

48.5

Sammy to Nasir Hossain, OUT, bowled! Nasir charged Sammy but was confronted by a slower delivery, he couldn't cope with the change of pace and missed a straight ball. He's played a superb innings to take Bangladesh past 200

Nasir Hossain b Sammy 50 (79m 54b 3x4 1x6) SR: 92.59

5.00 pm Bangladesh were 1 for 3 and 18 for 4 at one stage. There was talk of a repeat of the infamous 58 all out during the World Cup. The middle and lower order prevented that with determined batting. The total of 220 might not be formidable in the end, but Bangladesh's bowlers at least have something to try and defend. I'll be back in 30 minutes for the chase. Wonder how much dew there will be this evening.
