West Indies A 129 (Chandrika 40, Narine 40*, Reza 3-37, Shuvo 3-43) and 217 for 9 (Hyatt 62, Carter 55, Shuvo 4-84, Robiul 3-63) beat Bangladesh A 155 (Reza 39, Russell 4-42, Pascal 4-60) and 187 (Russell 5-36) by one wicket
West Indies A scrambled to a one-wicket win as the last pair of Sunil Narine and Nelon Pascal denied Bangladesh A with a 17-run stand. The win meant West Indies A won the two-match series 1-0. Bangladesh were almost out of the game when Danza Hyatt and Jonathan Carter were going strong in an 83-run stand that had taken West Indies to 156 for 3 in their chase of 214.
Robiul Islam and Suhrawadi Shuvo brought Bangladesh right back, striking twice each in quick succession. Hyatt went caught behind to Shuvo for 62 while Carter was trapped leg-before by Robiul for 55. Devon Thomas and Andre Russell followed soon and Bangladesh were now favourites at 175 for 7. Narine kept West Indies afloat but Sohag Gazi struck at the other end to reduce them to 200 for 9. With 14 still needed, No. 11 Pascal hit a six and a four to take West Indies to victory with Narine unbeaten on 26. Narine's effort followed his unbeaten 40 that lifted West Indies from 60 for 7 to 129 in the first innings.
The sides will play two unofficial Twenty20 internationals and three unofficial ODIs with the first game on November 18 in St. Lucia.
