It was heartbreak yet again for Bangladesh as they failed to finish the job done at Guyana. The Tigers fell short by 3 runs to bring the series back to level terms.

The Bangladeshi middle order cracked under the pressure and the heroics of Mushfiqur Rahim was not enough to get them over the line.

The game looked to be in Bangladesh’s bag since only 14 was required of the final 2 overs, but Keemo Paul and Jason Holder kept their calm and ensured that the batsman choked.

Earlier on, in the first innings, it was Shimron Hetmeyer’s whirlwind with the bat that helped Windies reach 271-6. The 21-year old hit 7 sixes and 3 fours en route to 125 off 93 deliveries.

Brief Scorecard:

Windies 271 in 49.3 overs (Shimron Hetmyer 125, Rovman Powell 44; Rubel Hossain 3-61)

Bangladesh 268/6 in 50 overs (Mushfiqur Rahim 68, Shakib Al Hasan 56, Tamim Iqbal 54; Ashley Nurse 1-34)
