Bangladesh celebrate their 200th ODI with a historic series win over West Indies, their first against a current Test playing nation. A funny game in the end as Shakib's half-century and his stand with Mushfiqur appeared to have sealed it for his team. 18 came off the first over of the batting powerplay by Roach, but Shakib fell the next over to Sammy. Mahmudullah panicked, and Mushfiqur failed to clear cover and it seemed that despite the poor bowling at the end, gifting extras, length balls and overthrows, West Indies could still level the series. However, Razzak and Naeem saw through some nervous moments to see their team home and the jubilation at their achievement was obvious as the players charged into the field from their dressing room to grab the stumps.

Details from the presentation now.

Reifer: "We had a good score, Dowlin played really well today. We came in with five bowlers and that was a risk and it was unfortunate Roach bowled those two full tosses and Sammy injured his hamstring as well. I need to spend some time in the middle, got a long hop straight to point which was disappointing. We've been bowling well throughout the series, it's a young team and the guys have to be patient and play some tough cricket."

Always makes it a point to thank the fans does Reifer, which is great.

Shakib: "I can't explain the feeling. The boys have tried their best and we did well. The batting powerplays are very crucial and you have to take them at the right time, and take it seriously. They batted well, handled the spinners well. The team has been supporting be throughout the series and so have the support staff."

Shakib is also the Man of the Match. Another superb all-round effort, helping Bangladesh achieve their highest run-chase in the ODIs.

That's all we have from here, folks. Thanks for tuning in, and do join us again for the third ODI on the 31st. Until then, it's goodbye from all of us here at Cricinfo. Adios!
