GEORGETOWN – A dazed West Indies suffered an inevitable 3-0 whitewash at the hands of Bangladesh after slumping to a four-wicket defeat in the final One-Day International of the three-match series yesterday.
Coming off depressing batting efforts in the two previous ODIs, West Indies fared only slightly better after being asked to bat for the third straight time, managing 178 all out in the penultimate over at the Guyana National Stadium.
Captain Nicholas Pooran broke a run of poor form with a defiant 73 off 109 deliveries, while Keacy Carty, in his first match of the series, struck a patient 33 from 66 balls, but left-arm spinner Taijul Islam conjured up a superb career-best five-wicket haul to undermine the innings.
Man Of The Match Taijul, in his first match of the tour, finished with five for 28 and received great support from the new-ball pair of seamer Mustafizur Rahman (two for 24) and left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed (two for 39). (CMC)
