Shakib keeps Bangladesh in the hunt

Shakib keeps Bangladesh in the hunt


Mushfiqur Rahim flicked one to keeper behind the stumps as Oshane Thomas got his first wicket. Tamim Iqbal was run out by Sheldon Cottrell. He went back for 48.

Shakib Al Hasan is in the middle.

Earlier, eyeing around 350 at one stage, West Indies finished at a score of 321/8 in 50 overs against Bangladesh at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton on Monday.

Shai Hope (96) was the top-scorer for the West Indies while Shimron Hetmyer (50) and Evin Lewis (70) also showed character, scoring fluent half-centuries. For Bangladesh, Mohammad Saifuddin and Mustafizur Rahman claimed three wickets each while Shakib Al Hasan chipped in with two.

After losing the dangerous Chris Gayle early, the West Indies got back the momentum, thanks to the composure of Shai Hope and the power of Evin Lewis.

Thereafter, Nicholas Pooran (25), Shimron Hetymer and Jason Holder (33) played some fiery cameos to propel West Indies to an imposing score. However, Bangladesh manage to pull back the West Indies juggernaut by picking wickets at regular intervals. Darren Bravo (19) hit some lusty blows for the Caribbean outfit to push them well past the 300-run mark.
