Bangladesh seal series beating West Indies in 2nd ODI

Tigers secured a seven-wicket win against West Indies in the second ODI of three-match series at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on Friday.

Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan earlier helped Bangladesh bowl out West Indies for 148 runs in 43.4 overs with career best 4-25 after West Indies skipper Jason Mohammed won the toss and elected to bat first.

The home side reached 149-3 in 33.2 overs, with skipper Tamim Iqbal hitting 50 and Shakib Al Hasan striking an unbeaten 43 runs. 

The hosts, who won Wednesday's opening match by six wickets, took early wickets before Rovman Powell hit 41 off 65 balls to boost the West Indies innings.

Debutant opener Kjorn Ottley (24) and Nkrumah Bonner (20) were other notable scorers for West Indies.

After West Indies skipper Jason Mohammed chose to bat, left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman claimed the first breakthrough by removing Sunil Ambris for six hitting a catch to Mehidy.

The third and final match will be held in Chattogram on Monday.
