Bangladesh v West Indies, 5th ODI, Mirpur December 8, 2012

Bangladesh hold nerve to win series

  shares 214

Bangladesh 221 for 8 (Mahmudullah 48, Narine 3-38) beat West Indies 217 (Pollard 85, Bravo 51, Shafiul 3-31) by two wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Bangladesh's batsmen held it together, but only just. After failing to chase 211 last night, they overcame three difficult phases in their pursuit of a target of similar proportion, to win a series they had led 2-0 but almost let slip out of their grasp. Twenty-four hours after their fans exited Shere Bangla in despair, the stadium was a venue of riotous celebration, as Nasir Hossain carved the winning boundary to drag his team to a two-wicket victory and claim the series against West Indies 3-2.

There was chaos at the finish. With one run needed, Nasir smashed the ball over cover and raised his arms in triumph as he completed the winning run. His partner, the No. 10 Elias Sunny, however, did not make it to the other end because he thought the ball had gone for four. The fielder in the deep returned it and Kieran Powell uprooted a stump amid the celebrations. Darren Sammy's protests that a run had not been completed prompted the umpires to check. No run had indeed been completed; nobody had been run out either. Everyone took their positions again and Nasir's slashing bat sparked off another round of celebrations.

The confusion in those final moments was in contrast to the calm with which Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah and Nasir steered a tense chase, after Bangladesh's bowlers had recovered admirably from a Kieron Pollard battering.

Chasing 217, Bangladesh were 30 for 3 in the ninth over, the top order unable to withstand Kemar Roach's pace and bounce. The previous evening, the collapse had ended only when the hosts were shot out for 136, but not in this deciding contest.

The shift in momentum was immediate; Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah scored 29 runs off the 11 balls following Jahurul's dismissal. West Indies' bowling was poor: their lengths were too short and their lines were scattered outside off and down leg side, resulting in 18 wides. They had conceded 26 extras in each of the previous three ODIs; they gave away 27 today.

Sammy, who excelled with bat and ball in the fourth match, leaked 16 runs in the tenth over. He conceded six runs in wides, bowled a long-hop that Mahmudullah pulled for four and a half-volley that was driven to the cover boundary. The change bowlers also struggled. Andre Russell pitched short and wide and was cut twice by Mushfiqur to the boundary. Sunil Narine bowled five tight balls in his first over before the sixth was loose and punished. Roach returned for his second spell in the 19th over and he too conceded two boundaries.

Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah ran hard between the wickets, and cut and pulled forcefully. Only when they had added 91 at better than a run a ball did West Indies have any respite. Both batsmen were bowled by Narine in their 40s and Bangladesh were in front no more.

After 30 overs in the first innings, West Indies had been 145 for 3. Bangladesh, at the same stage of their chase, were 148 for 5. West Indies had collapsed thereafter, though, while Bangladesh did not.

Nasir, in the company of rookie Mominul Haque, added 53 for the sixth wicket. They consolidated at first, and,once the batting Powerplay was taken in the 36th over, they attacked. Nasir slogged Veerasammy Permaul over the midwicket boundary to bring the runs required to fewer than 40. And when Mominul was dismissed with Bangladesh close, Sohag Gazi took then closer with quick boundaries. He too fell, but Nasir stayed the course.

That Bangladesh were not chasing a target closer to 250 was because their spinners took a clutch of wickets on either side of a 132-run stand between Pollard and Darren Bravo. They kept West Indies scoreless for 34 deliveries, between overs 2.6 and 8.4, and dismissed Marlon Samuels and Chris Gayle during that period to leave the visitors on 17 for 3.

The repair job was up to Bravo and Pollard, who had failed in three matches after saying he would smash the ball into another city. Pollard didn't hit any into Khulna, but he hit eight balls for six between midwicket and long-off, punishing Sunny in particular.

Mushfiqur needed to call on a fifth spinner to dismiss Pollard; Mominul got one to keep low and sneak past the bat to hit off stump to dismiss him for 84 for 74 balls. A real scrap was in progress as West Indies began the last ten overs on 188 for 5 and Mahmudullah struck twice in the 41st over; his first wicket was of Bravo for 51.

West Indies were dismissed in 48 overs, and in a game of small margins, 12 unused deliveries and 27 runs concedes in extras was the largesse Bangladesh needed to achieve a momentous result. The victory took Bangladesh to No. 8 in the ICC's ODI rankings, ahead of New Zealand.

    So that's why India don't invite Bangladesh for a series because they're not confident enough in beating us. Maybe you should play your youngsters against us in your own grounds so we can really see who has the best young players don't be afraid. If you take away the runs of Sachin from Asia Cup match, you will see the big difference between the Indian youngsters and the Bangladesh youngsters and if we were to play a 5 match ODI series soon, Bangladesh will win it 3-2 if not more. Our Anamul Haque the 19 year old teenager has had a fantastic start to his Bangladesh career and scored a 120 against the West Indies, Unmukt Chand who is the same age as our Anamul has a tough time to match it good luck! :D

    Can't wait when these older experience players of Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka are all gone so Bangladesh can really unleash their force on your inexperience young replacements. Our experience young players Tamim, Shakib, Rahim, Mahmudullah have already played well over 80 ODI matches, over 20 Test and T20 matches and our experience though a bit older but by no means like Mortaza (29) and Razzak (30) have played between them more than 250 ODIs whoa! more than 40 test matches plus more than 40 T20 matches between them all at that age now add their experience all up and along with our quick, talented, energetic youths like Anamul, Nasir, Mominul, Abul who made all made their debuts recently, will become a very strong team in Cricket starting from 2013. Even our other young players like Nazmul, Shafiul etc have improved greatly as players and have already played between them more than a 100 International matches across all formats at the highest level so its clear Bangladesh is climbing up.

    @Sleep_is_Good on (December 10 2012, 10:57 AM GMT) - I agree with everything you said EXCEPT for "...so that instantly shows that Bangladesh are good planners." I totally disagree. Good planning would of been to have the National team playing domestic FC cricket, more development tours at home & abroad, not increasing the FC teams to 8, (6 should of been more than enough). There is tons of talent in Bangladesh & boy this side could be really good in 5 years time (at home). Good planning would be to create pitches that have some seam movement so that you can get another one or two Mortaza's! I believe that Bangladesh is slowly uncovering the formulae to maximise their results - that is, to stack the side with allrounders. It seems almost everyone in Bangladesh can bat a bit, & bowl spin. So you have guys like Shuvo, Gazi & Sunny who are good spinners yet also boast FC tons. Throw in a good batsmen like Mahmudullah who is a handy spinner, Bangladesh can have bating depth to #10 or #11.

    @The_bowlers_Holding: "well done on narrowly beating WI". Would you please define "narrowly". BD won the first match by 7 wickets, the second by 160 runs!! The 3rd match was a lot closer than the scoreline shows, and they played bad in the 4th match (They are allowed one bad performance out of 5). The last match was actually won by 4 wickets in reality. Roaches delivery was nowhere near Sohag Gazi's bat, and the lbw decision on the next ball was the worst I have ever seen in cricket, it wasn't an lbw as the ball clearly landed outside leg stump. WI was outplayed in every department on 4 out of the 5 matches by BD. How is this narrowly beating WI? Did you not say in another post that it is a common theme after BD wins a couple of games the BD fans say they have arrived, only to see the team getting hammered? Who got hammered in this series? And in case you have not noticed, BD has arrived, they were a better team in this ODI series, by a long shot!:-)

    I just calculated that this Bangladesh team is very young blended with experience young players as well like Rahim, Tamim, Shakib, Mortaza etc. The average of this team right now is 23 and in comparison with other teams with their first team players, Australia 30, England 28, West Indies 27, New Zealand 27, India 28, Pakistan 32, Sri Lanka 30, South Africa 30, Zimbabwe 25. The oldest senior player in Bangladesh is Abdur Razzak who has just turned 30 so that instantly shows that Bangladesh are good planners. Even the familiar Mohammad Ashraful who is not in the team anymore is still on 28 years old so that shows how young are players are :P

The world doesn't play Test Cricket its disliked and even after 5 days, still there are many draws. lolz I'm sure once the Indian players the experience ones are all gone then things will start to get interesting. As long as theirs interest and grounds are packed in Bangladesh then your dreams will always remain as dreams. This series win was with 4 debutants plus without their best players and they still managed to do the job. I doubt you will last even a second against sow bowling let alone medium bowling :)

    CONGRATS TO BANGLADESH !! You have to admire their courage and fighting spirit which finally brought them success vs WI after going down 2-0 in test series. However one must admit that Windies made key mistakes in TEAM SELECTION, PERFORMANCE and STRATEGY. 1. The WI SELECTORS made a big MESS in selecting this ODI team and would've probably been relieved of their roles had it been any of the top countries. It doesn't take rocket science to figure that the all-rounders they chose would've struggled against the good quality spin bowlers of BD. I mean even Gayle struggled in test series. This meant that once 3 of top 4 were out Windies were in trouble & never registered a score above 220. PATHETIC ! Why Chanderpaul & Ramdin were sent back home is still a mystery ? 2.The batsmen lacked PATIENCE & the bowlers generally lacked DISCIPLINE. 3. SAMMY should've brought back ROACH soon as BD capt & V/capt were dismissed. He tried to BOWL OUT overs of RUSSELL & co instead of trying to BOWL OUT BD.

  • POSTED BY sfarazi on | December 10, 2012, 2:00 GMT

    From this performance, it's pretty obvious that Bangladesh at home are a dangerous side in the odi format and if they had concentrated a little more, they probably could've drawn the test series as well. We have quality spinners (thanks to Saqlain Mustaq), we are also developing a sturdy batting order and our fielding has come a long way as well. What we need now is an influx in pace bowlers and batmen who are capable of batting on bouncy tracks. If we can achieve this in the next year or two, we can definitely beat any team either at home or abroad :) Good luck Tigers! xx

    @Ahmed Hussain - I fully expect Bangladesh to keep producing these type of wins at home. I think they were very competitive in the Tests, & were a lot more competitive in their losses in the ODIs than in the past. I have a lot of time Mahmudullah, & think Anamul & Nasir are great talents. Very good win win without any contribution from Bangladesh's best player - Shakib!

    To all our critics out there, please just get use to our Cricket because we're a team that's arising and with the amount of top International starts that leaving, just making Bangladesh a lot stronger because this is a young experience team compared to the others. Unlike in many countries, Bangladesh can fill grounds packed with numbers infact there were signs they could've filled 5 times as many if there were more seating available. Bangladesh Cricket future looks fantastic with them starting to produce fantastic young players, have one of the best under-19 records, the top scorer of the under-19 world cup has made his debut in this series and scored a 120 against West Indies, next World T20 will be held in Bangladesh, have a wonderful fan base, building new academies and stadiums etc etc our future in Cricket is clear. I'm sure sure once the top older players of India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka etc are gone, Bangladesh will find you guys a lot easier to compete against you :)

  • POSTED BY on | December 9, 2012, 12:32 GMT

    Congratulations! Bangladesh! on a series well deserved a fantastic one day series shall I say and we've seen literally everything you could possibly have asked for. Game 4 was an unfortunate one for Bangladesh and that's where good bowling from West Indies and inexperience for Bangladesh kicked in but the way they fought afterwards showed their new character. Don't forget it was Sri Lanka early in the year that got bowled out for 40 something but Bangladesh prevented that from happening and played with dignity. Don't forget that they won this series without their best player so that shows Bangladesh recent successful results or performances are not by any means a fluke. As for West Indies, Bangladesh clearly gave them a fight even in the test series at times but must say their pace bowling is one of the best now only behind South Africa and England. Bangladesh have major domestic tournaments coming up in the new year and their next International assignment will be away to Sri Lanka.

    In hindsight there's always 20-20 vision. I think the WI captain stated the position well: that the guys won 2 games while playing bad cricket throughout the whole series. He said:" If one is honest BD deserved to win the series", which is true. In ODI cricket one needs good batsmen whereas in T20 20's and 30's can win you a match. They(WI) didn't play as a unit and the additions to the squad(Simmons, Smith, Russel and Pollard to a certain extent)struggled to cope with the conditions and looked poor. Should I mention the holy grail of WI cricket? CG! Failed miserably(even in the test matches). He looked out of it: nervous, confused, tentative. Don't think he got a half century the whole series and I never felt like he would get one. 1 T20 left to go I guess

    We got two new gems in the squad NASIR and SHOHAG GAZI (turning out to be a solid all rounder). Our weakness in batting got exposed in the fourth game. We still lack a genuine opening pair in batting. Tamim is the kind of player who should play 4th or 5th down. Right now, don't have a choice but to use him at the opening. His numbers would have reflected much better I believe should he played down the order. Everyone knows we have yet to produce a Tiger like pace bowler. That should come in time. Teamwork helped the boys to win the series. Individual success (like we had seen with Pollard's batting) doesn't get you the kind of result you want and the 5th game was a clear example of that. Well done Tigers.... Hearty congratulations on a great win.

    Bangladesh team was not playing with their full strength. They were missing world's number 1 all-rounder Shakib-Al Hasan for injury in the whole series. Still they won the one day series by 3-2 against West Indies who recently became the T20 world Champion. In short, full power world champion West Indies are defeated by half-power Bangladesh. And this should be focused by world media. By the way, Bangladesh gonna be the top 3 teams in ODI in 2013. wait and see.

    I have great respect for Jeffrey Dujon as a cricketer, but was disappointed with his commentary of accusing WI batsmen for failing to score but not crediting BD bowlers enough. Isn't it obvious that batsmen fail because of smart bowling in ODI :). Also, with due respect to Mr. Atahar Ali and Mr. Shameem Ahmed, no doubt you are the best BD commentators - but there is absence of cricketing analysis in your commentary. The ancient way of describing the game during pre television era is no longer required as everybody can see what is happening in the tv screen. But cricketing analysis could be valuable for young cricketers as well as entertaining for spectators.

    What a game! What a history! What a stylist and responsible batting displayed by Bangladeshis! And what a series win! I am equally proud alongside all patriotic Bangladeshis who have really enjoyed every moment of this match home and abroad. TIGERS, we are mainly lacking this consistency not due to talent but because of patience and self respect. Once we constantly maintain it for a number of years, it will be very difficult to beat us in any game, I bet (like former Pakistan and West Indies). We have to change this longstanding strategy that winning one match ensures we have achieved everything and we are on the top of the world. And this is the prime cause of majority of our defeats. Although you made this great victory last night, please consider that you learned how to win a match patiently and responsibly. So please keep learning this lesson to maintain the consistency. BILLIONS OF CONGRATULATIONS FROM MY HEART.

    Regardless of winning T20 worldcup and the test series, what westindies team lacks is CONSISTENCY and what they are full of now is OVER CONFIDENCE which can be fatal for them.

    Congratulations to BANGALDESH team after loosing test series, they gathered them selves and played quite well even in the absence of their main player, SHAKIB. Bangladeshis are full of talent and skills the only thing they lack is TEAM WORK. When ever the join hands together as team, they came up victorious. All the best Bangladesh, hopefully they will emerge as a force and will join the ASIAN giants in their ranks soon.

    Mr. Sadequl do u think we love the team any lesser than u do? no sire we don't. we love the team as much as u do. if u r expecting to win all the games then u should play with Bangladesh in cricket PC or xbox games where u can thrash any one down. the beauty of cricket is in its twists. anyways. ur sorry or what ever harsh things u said doesn't matter.if u really support the team be with them in their bad times just as u enjoy being with them while they r winning. Please lets not become india or pakistan to praise our team today and tomorrow we'll be out their burning their poster or attacking their home.

    and all who are concern about ranjhi trophy getting more attention than an international series i just wana ask them what else do u expect? they think they are the big shots and we;re like nothing. remember sakib's out on asia cup? even umpires are with them. So its kinda obvious isn't it? we can see the score and comment i think they are being generous to us.

    The W.I selectors are the biggest culprits in this W.I loss. The plethora of all-rounders in W.I team and the bush wicket keeper killed us. Furthermore, after playing 4 ODIs it was clear that Smith, Russell and Simmons were hopeless. These were the starters in the 1st ODI. Why wasn't Holder used? If he is not a better bowler than Smith and Russell he should not be on the tour. That's why I repeat that Johnson and/or Cottereal have been played a rotten hand by the selectors. Congrats BD!

    It is the wrong team selection by WI, when they knew that BD are bunny's to fast bowling and cannot keep their bats down on time they should have played Rampaul instead of Veersammy.And for BD you winning is great, but still you guys are not worth for a status in test cricket and ICC should make a ruling in case BD looses another 10 test matches without winning atleast 1 test match they should be taken of their test status.

His presence or absence will have NO impact on the outcome of this series just like the test series. Inshallah, West Indies will steamroll Bangladesh in ODIs also. INSHALLAH!!" I must say Legaleagle you are a soothsayer!!! You were absolutely spot on with your prediction that Shakib's presence will have no impact on the outcome of the series. You see, since BD, with their "mediocre" players could have only done better in this series if their best "Mediocre" player was also playing. So the outcome of the series would have been the same, BD would have still won! Now as for your second prediction, don't come back and say I did not warn you!

    No more comment after the game ends? Lol .... people always keep saying things against Bangladesh. Please do not do that :) We are in the cricket world for just 15 years (We got ODI status on 1997) and a full nation for 12 years (We got Test status on 2000). So we are still new, national team can only perform if the domestic structure is good. Those teams which are playing good have a domestic history for 50+ years, and we are going there too. After 2-0 up in this series, then 2-2 .... and finally coming out of that and winning the series by 3-2 means a lot to all the bangladeshi people :) Because we are seeing the change in the body language and the hunger for winning games in the player is there. Only one thing to say for my loving country and for the players ..... 'Shabash BANGLADESH'. Chilam, achi and ajibon thakbo tomader shathe :D

    Congrats to Bangladesh team for winning the 5th ODI by making the series 3-2 and winning the Shahara Cup 2012. The important thing is to hold the nerve when needed. They must take good note from the series and in the coming days they should learn how to deal fast bowling, which is always a negative side of subcontinent players. For any win all 3 departments needs to work collectively. For example, India is taking a heavy punches from England in their own turf where their spinners are somewhat useless. They should learn from them!

  • POSTED BY sfarazi on | December 9, 2012, 0:53 GMT

    'Yes even a blind person could tell that West Indies would win this series.' It's in times like these that people wish that they were blind so that they didn't have to witness Bangladesh prove their overstatement wrong. No offence brother but I think the Windies were outplayed in this match. The two matches they lost were because of their batting and in some cases fielding incompetencies but they came back strongly. Congrats Bangladesh and may you continue to create history for many many years to come :) Best of luck! xx

    Congratulation to Bangladesh. They showed that they are now mature enough to hold their nerves in tense situation. After being 30/3 it requires character to win a match.BD would have won the series more easily had they made batting wicket at Mirpur. Making a spinning wicket actually backfired them. BD won convincingly against India and Srilanka and almost beat pakistan twice in asia cup no batting track in Dhaka.

  • POSTED BY realist1 on | December 9, 2012, 0:42 GMT

    Good series win by BD. WI had the upper hand in this match on couple of occasions - when Pollard was hammering the BD bowlers all of over the ground and then when Naraine got Mushfiq bowled out, but WI couldn't capitalise. Good to see young BD batters bat somewhat sensibly and took their team to victory. By the way, how good was Mahmudullah's innings? So pleasing in the eyes... Good luck both teams for upcoming T20 match.

    .."They kept West Indies scoreless for 34 deliveries, between overs 2.6 and 8.4, and dismissed Marlon Samuels and Chris Gayle during that period to leave the visitors on 17 for 3."..! This is amazing a fact and showed clearly how good was Bangladeshi bowling at that particular time....can anybody give me any similar record that any other team in the world was able to keep batsmen "scoreless" for 34 deliveries (5 overs & 4 balls) in ODI..? The extraordinary feat that Bangladeshi bowlers showed is particularly deserve special mention if one consider that two devastating batsmen like Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels were on the crease at that time and they couldn't take a single run off the 34 balls.....!!

    I am sorry that West Indies lost.This might be good for Bangladesh young cricketers.I would go watch them play against any other cricketing nation.they show enthusiasm and they have some very talented cricketers.On the other hand W.I needs to modernize their selection process.I am really upset that young Holder a young aggressive bowler was not given a play instead of Russel.His height and accuracy would of been a better choice than Russel.I know that they will try to defend Russel's selection by saying that he is a proven player.When was the last time that he has produced.I like Russell,but we need to have variety in this team.There is a core that we must use and the supporting cast has to be changed to suit the situation.I will say that no one is to be blamed for this defeat.We did not play up to expectation and this does happen from time to time with sport teams.We have to learn from this and move forward with a better vision of what needs to be done.

    Bangladesh played first ever two-team ODI Series against the "elites" in 08 OCT 1999 (with 2 or more ODIs). Opponent was WI, who won that, by 109 and 73 runs. 13 years gone, Lara, Ambrose retired so did Bulbul, Gullu, Suman, Pilot. Now we have a complete new generation of cricketers. New breed of cricket playing Homo sapiens, to be exact. They gave us series win against Zimbabwe and Banglawash of NZ. I hope and truly believe, today's win, the 72nd of our 232 ODIs, would not inject arrogance/over confidence or any other foolishness, into our this new players. I guess this semi-Wash of WI in dhaka, is just the start into a long awaited journey into the new age of Tiger-Cricket! I hope that tigers win their only T20I, even if they loose, we won't loose much since we will loose against the World Champions. Best wishes for Bangladesh.

    Although I am a West Indian fan and I feel badly about their loss I think this was expected with the make up of their batting line up.It is time they get at least two experienced batsmen who can hold an end so the line up would not fall to pieces. In most of the matches the bowlers did their job but it was the batting that failed. 200+ runs is not enough. getting bowled out is definitely bad. Congrats to the Tigers and only hope that the WI selectors change their attitude towards a different make up for the next tour.

    The W.I selectors are the biggest culprits in this W.I loss. The plethora of all-rounders in W.I team and the bush wicket keeper killed us. Furthermore, after playing 4 ODIs it was clear that Smith, Russell and Simmons were hopeless. These were the starters in the 1st ODI. Why wasn't Holder used? If he is not a better bowler than Smith and Russell he should not be on the tour. That's why I repeat that Johnson and/or Cottereal have been played a rotten hand by the selectors. Congrats BD!

Game would have been over before the 'due' took effect of the total condition. Sammy should have bring in Samuels and even give Gayle an over before giving Russell a seconds spell. Sunil came back on too late as well.

    West Indies give it away to Bangladesh. Hope for the best for in the twenty/20.

    Shafiul is a better fast bowler than Rubel and he is in the team because Mashrafe is injured!! People just comment without knowing lol! These are the people who dance too much and throw bricks at the bus when BD loses mostly because they don't understand cricket or maybe don't know the facts like why Mashrafe not playing today! Anyway it's been a good series for Bangladesh without Shakib Al Hasan. They handled them with maturity at the most part of the series. Kudos to Bangladesh for the series win.

    Congratulations to the Tigers. Deserve the Victory, as West Indies never played as a Unit throughout the 5 Game Series. Today only 3 players showed up Pollard, Narine and Roach. Inconsistency is the name of the Game for W.I. - Yesterday Sammy was the Man of the Match, today well, his returns says it all, and the over when he gave away 16 runs after Bang were 30 odd for 3 was the turning point. He never bowled again and gave the ineffective Russell, 10 overs including the final over, when it was clear that his bowling was meat and drink. The WI Selectors need to get it right. I am sorry but Thomas keeping is average at best, and he is not a better batsman than Ramdin either. Gayle, Smith, Simmons, Russell, were totally disappointing. Again Pollard saves his head by getting at least one good score in the series. Darren Bravo needs to improve his concentration skillls. Narine hopefully will improve as he has natural ability. In other words W.I. despite winning T20, a far from a Good Side.

  • POSTED BY on | December 8, 2012, 17:05 GMT

    Congratulation to Rahim for MOS and Mahmudullah for excellent performance throughout and being the MOM. Also respect to Mominul whose all-round performance actually help us clinch the series and also Nasir showing enough nerve not to get bogged down. Cheers from Dhaka!

  • POSTED BY on | December 8, 2012, 17:03 GMT

    When the WI 1-day squad was named, it was obvious to me that the management had not selected enough specialist batsmen, and was relying too much on allrounders. Why did they send Chanderpaul home, as he is the sole stablizing influence when Gayle and Samuels fail. His 1-day stats are impressive (Av. 41.6, SR 70.74, top score 150). Additionally, Ramdin was banished, even though his batting had come a long way after suffering through a dry spell. After all, 1-day cricket is quite different from T20s, where Russell can perhaps find a way into the latter squad, but certainly not the former.

    The curtain is drawn,the show has ended.Congratulation to Bangladesh.I looked at the test matches and the OD series and I am convivced that they are a better side.They lost the test series because of inexpierence and not talent. This young team has an abundance of talent that will give any side a difficult time.Their bowling has been top notch,but their batting especially in the test matches lacked dicipline.Their strike rate were above avg: in the test matches, and this is one area they need to address.West Indies on the other hand seemed a bit complacent,Sammy,a good man was not properly supported by his men in the one dayers.Their batting lacked stability and this saw them struggling in the course of the series.Their bowling were patchy and lack consistency.Narine whom much was expected failed miserably,Permaul and company minus Roach were also treated with disdain.I think the WI selectors have been making a grave mistake by not playing their best batsman Chanderpaul.

    WI about 25 runs short. But a workable total. Bangla seamer got 3wks, therefore there is s/thing for the 'quicks'. Accurate bowling & some tight fielding should c WI thru. Pollard still hasn't redeemed himself, one good knock after about 6 showings, not acceptable. However, this has the makings of an exciting finals. Always nice to c 2 minnows go after each other. Remember Bangla was leading 2-0, and Bangla is a minnow.

    No need to watch the 5th one day & even a blind will be able to say what will be the end result. When a team can not perform in a winning stage to win a series then they don't deserve to win infect...WI will win without any doubt

    score will be close to 300 & BD will loose it on half way ;)

    BD will definitely win today. Just patience in batting is needed. Today we have better batting line-up...

    I don't see the rational in dropping Dwayne Smith. He took 2 wicket for 7 runs in 3.1 over and was instrumental in getting the last two wickets to win the match to square the series at 2-2. What does this do to your confidence? Sink him further in the miry clay. Come on selectors have some heart and compassion. Don't be too ruthless.
