True Baje says "We have a group of young inexperience men out in the field trying to do their best and it really worries me when people want to crush them to the ground. I am not in the least bit worried, for the last 12 years we endured all manure of humiliation. If Dyson can take this crop of young men and make something out of them in the next three years, then that will be a plus for WI. I am not going to be joining those who somehow think that the first team are stars. We will play with who are willing and make the best out of them. Stop bashing the young men and try to encourage them. To you Trini JOBO cricket in the 80s follow determine men from the 70s and 60s, who do these guys have to follow" now thats a true lover of West Indies cricket

He very often throw his wicket away in gay abndon. His batting average is not better than many tail enders of major team. A person of his caliber playing for a long time should have been more responsible more consistent.He often gets himself out rather than making bowlers struggle to win his wicket."

Sammy comes back into the attack

47.1

Sammy to Mahmudullah, 1 wide, wide down the leg side and not the time to bowl it

It shows how crucial it is to play out the overs. If only West Indies had played their quota of 50 overs

47.1

Sammy to Mahmudullah, 1 run, fuller on the leg stump. Mahmudullah turns it away to deep square leg for a single

47.2

Sammy to Abdur Razzak, 1 run, full toss on the off stump. Razzak drives it to mid-off and a lazy throw from Fletcher still allows Razzak to be at the crease

For some reason Razzak is limping and out comes Naeem as runner for him as the physio is attending to Razzak

47.3

Sammy to Mahmudullah, 1 run, outside the off stump. Mahmudullah pushes it to mid-off and runs across for a single

47.4

Sammy to Abdur Razzak, 3 runs, and Fletcher drops it! He has been having a bad time on the field time as Razzak top edges a hoick and Fletcher has to run backwards from mid-off to take the catch. He covers the distance but cant get his hands around the ball

Roach to Mahmudullah, no run, on the off stump. Mahmudullah defends it back onto the pitch

48.5

Roach to Mahmudullah, 2 runs, fuller on the leg stump. Mahmudullah flicks it to midwicket where Smith drops the catch. A reflection on the fielding in the last few overs and Mahmudullah gets to his half-century with that. Bangladesh have won by Three wickets

As has been the theme of the series. West Indies got Bangladesh into an uncomfortable position but could not quite keep them down and will have 3-0 to show for their efforts. On the other hand Bangladesh found one player or the other to raise their hands up in crucial moments

On reflection West Indies will find that their inability to play out the overs and the dropped catch of Mahmudullah off the first ball he faced cost them dear

Join us in a short while for the presentations

Reifer feels another 15-20 runs would have made the difference and more partnerships were required at the top of order and he congratulates the Bangladesh team on winning the series

Shakib says that they were looking forward to this series and is happy that they have won the series. He is also happy with the fact that someone or the other raised their hands up in times of need and were counted

Mahmudullah is the Man of the match and says that he enjoyed the knock as he scored a half-century after some time and feels that he enjoyed his batting as the series was already won

Shakib Al Hasan is the Man of the series

Thats it from all of us at Cricinfo. Have a good night's sleep and join us for the T20 international on Sunday
