Highlight Story

Bangladesh followed up the Test series victory over the West Indies with a triumph in their opening one-day international.

They won the first of the three ODIs by 52 runs, making 246 for nine before bowling out the West Indies for 194.

The Caribbean team again fielded a weakened side despite the end of the strike by their first-choice players who were in dispute over payments and contracts.

Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan continued his good form with a half-century to build on Mohammad Ashraful’s 57 as Bangladesh made a strong start at Windsor Park, the venue hosting it’s first international game. Seamer Kemar Roach took five wickets for the West Indies who lost both the openers cheaply in a poor start to their reply.
