Sagicor High Performance Centre 126 for 2 (Fletcher 44*, Carter 53*) beat Bangladesh A 125 for 7 (Kayes 29, Sabbir 28, Cottrell 3 for 19) by eight wickets
An explosive half-century from Jonathan Carter powered Sagicor High Performance Centre to an eight-wicket win over Bangladesh A at the Three Ws Oval and helped them level the two-match T20 series 1-1. Carter struck five fours and two sixes in an unbeaten 31-ball 53, and put on an unbroken 81 for the third wicket with Andre Fletcher as Sagicor raced to their target of 126 with 27 balls remaining. Fletcher finished not out on 44 off 35 balls. Carter came in to bat at 45 for 2 in the eighth over, after fast bowler Shafiul Islam had picked up the second of his two wickets. They were to remain Bangladesh A's only successes.
Sent in to bat, Bangladesh A lost Nurul Hassan in the first over of the match, lbw to left-arm seamer Sheldon Cottrell. Imrul Kayes and Shuvagata Hom then added 54 for the second wicket, before both fell within an over of each other to leave Bangladesh A 59 for 3 in the eighth over. They never quite regained the lost momentum, and Sabbir Rahman's 28 was the only contribution of note from their middle and lower order as they finished on 125 for 7.
