Nkrumah Bonner's unbeaten 111 helped Sagicor High Performance Centre to complete a 3-0 whitewash over Bangladesh A in the one-day series in Barbados.

The hosts had won the first game by 117 runs and the second by three wickets.

Choosing to bat, the visitors were bowled out for 221 in 44.4 overs, losing their last six wickets for just 21 runs. Shuvagata Hom made 66 off 70 balls with seven fours while Nurul Hasan, promoted to open the innings, made 45.

Carlos Brathwaite and Jonathan Carter took three wickets each while Nikita Miller picked up two wickets.

In reply, Bonner led the charge for the home side with his third List A hundred. He shared 98 runs for the opening wicket with Andre Fletcher, after which he held on as three more wickets fell, before completing the win in, coincidentally, 44.4 overs.

Bangladesh A will play two T20s on June 14 and 15 before heading home.

    As one who watches BD play and encourages them to get better and hopes to be proud of them some day, I must say it was really an embarrassing experience watching the silent streaming on They are in no way near the HPC team in Cricketing skills let alone a real A team.

    It is encouraging to see a promising youngster like Bonner excelling, but let's put it into perspective that it is only the Bangla A team, without the intention of being too disrespectful to them. Mind you the hapless Windies Selectors should consider pushing guys like Pooran and Bonner in the Senior Squad. They certainly can't do any worse than our so-called establihed middle order. Sarwan, Simmons, Braithwaite, Dwayne Bravo, Pollard, Barath and Dwayne Smith need to be considered as other options. Still can't get my head round three of the top six batsman making first innings ducks on a pitch where New Zealand posted 500 runs. I appreciate scoreboard-pressure, but come on!! application, technically flawed, poor shot-selection, all simular qualities to a Sunday Pub Team, the difference is amateur pub teams don't get paid for batting horribly!!

    Bangladesh isn't strong opposition by any means so the players can't get comfortable. if it was against SA or Eng. then it's laudable
