KHULNA – Erratic West Indies were left tottering on the brink of an embarrassing series loss after another abysmal performance saw them slump to a belittling 160-run defeat to Bangladesh in the second One-Day International yesterday.
If the Caribbean side were lacklustre in Friday’s opening loss, they slipped to the level of the indifferent, allowing an energized Bangladesh to rattle up a challenging 292 for six and then keeling over for 132 off31.1 overs without so much as a whimper.
The victory was Bangladesh’s largest ever in ODIs in terms of runs and another win in Wednesday’s third ODI in Dhaka will see them to their first ever series triumph over a top flight West Indies side.
Teenaged opener Anamul Haque was the architect of Bangladesh’s total, superbly crafting 120, his maiden ODI century in only his second match in international cricket. (CMC)Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
