commentary

Okay. We have a decider. Not many would have expected that. Will toss play a crucial role? Bangladesh would be wary of that come the decider. Join us on Friday, November 14, 2018 at noon local (0600 GMT) for the third ODI at a different venue - Sylhet. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Aha. Victorious Windies captain Rovman Powell manages a smile. Praises his team for responding well under pressure and is happy that Bangladesh were restricted to 255. Hopes that the bowling continues to be consistent. Admits that there is a worry in the fact that the bowling seems to be excellent only in the last 10 overs, after conceding too many in the first few. On the way the chase was planned, Powell says that the team management knows that there is plenty of batting depth and in further games, the strategy needs to be the way it was tonight - one of the top 3 needs to bat deep.

SHAI HOPE HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH FOR HIS UNBEATEN 146 FROM 144 BALLS. Is happy but wants to reserve his celebrations with one more game to go. Says that he just kept backing himself throughout the chase and in the last 2 overs, cut loose. On the advice given to Keemo Paul, Shai says that he just asked Keemo to bat as straight as possible and is glad that he stayed unbeaten along with him.

Bangladesh captain, Mashrafe Mortaza comes up first for a chat. Admits that he is disappointed and puts it down to not performing under pressure. Hopes to now come back well in the final ODI. Agrees that the choke at the death with the bat was the main setup to this defeat, as they could have scored more runs with so many wickets in hand. But also adds that dropped catches did not help later on in the field. Praises Shai Hope for staying till the end but stresses that with 24 (actually 22) needed from 2 overs, it was a 50-50 game. On Bangladesh's performance overall, Mash is happy with both departments and reckons that they fought hard.

Dew factor? Perhaps. That could be the only reason for Bangladesh's average performance with the ball. Shakib and Mehidy were the only bowlers doing well while the others struggled. Windies played smart cricket, not looking to attack the two spinners and the ploy worked. Consider this - Shakib and Mehidy combined - 19-0-67-1 while Mustafizur, Mortaza and Rubel went for 172 runs in 29 overs combined, for 5 wickets. Dropped catches did not help them either. Expect plenty of criticism from Mortaza. Please stay tuned for the presentation...

And now, finally, Shai Hope. They say that he has got loads of talent and potential. He has shown that here again. Did not allow the pressure to soak in and played confident, risk-free shots for majority of the innings. Now, only for him to be more consistent and become one of the best Windies batsmen in a long time.

Bowlers, you say? Make no mistake, Keemo Paul can bat. He batted responsibly and ensured that Hope was not starved off strike. Indeed - that unbeaten 7th wicket stand worth 71 in 64 balls was the biggest for the Windies and the best of the match.

In any game, partnerships are the key. But more so, in a run chase. The Windies strung decent stands - lost Hemraj early but then got 65 for the second wicket between Hope and Bravo, then another 62 between Hope and Samuels before a bit of a collapse stemmed their progress. It was at this time that Bangladesh thought they had a chance. The visitors slipped from 132/2 to 185/6 and with 71 needed from 66 balls and the bowlers exposed, it looked like the game was over.

A well-scripted run chase. In pursuit of a big target, one of your top three needs to score big. Shai Hope was that man tonight. His unbeaten 146 from just 144 balls provided a wonderful calmness to the others as they kept batting around him. His previous two ODI centuries had resulted in ties - third time, it has been lucky.

Pin-drop silence in the stadium. Now, someone starts to clap. Oh hang on, it is the Windies dugout. What a chase. There were talks of probably toss being the factor in the previous game. It has been proved right here.

M Rahman to S Hope, FOUR! It is all over for Bangladesh. Length delivery on off, Hope plays a paddle sweep but the ball hits the glove. However it is good enough as it lobs over the keeper and races away for a boundary! 16 runs from the over.

R Hossain to S Hope, OVERTHROW! Unnecessary from Mehidy and Rahim lets him know about it. Outside off, Hope slices it towards point and sets off for a single. Hasan sees that the batsmen are crossing over and there is no backup for Mustafizur but still throws it at the bowler's end. A wide throw does not help his cause and the batsmen take the second after the ball goes all the way to deep mid-wicket.
47.1

R Hossain to S Hope, SIX! Terrific shot from Shai Hope! Full on middle, Hope hits it straight down the ground for a biggie. Bangladesh feeling the tension. This is now his highest score in ODIs. Windies need 26 runs in 17 balls. It is a good start to the over.

M Mortaza to S Hope, 100 for Shai Hope! 3rd one for him in ODIs. No big celebrations, just a muted one, raising his bat to the dressing room. He knows that the job has not been done yet and needs to bat through to enforce a decider in Sylhet. It was a short ball outside off, Hope cut it towards point for a single. His previous two centuries have resulted in ties. Will it be a victory this time?

Hope on 99...

M Mortaza to R Chase, BIG MIX UP! Chance of a run out, but missed! Big moment in the game. Length delivery on off, Chase drives it past the bowler. Chase sets off for a single but is sent back rightly by Shai Hope as mid on and mid off come in quickly. The fielder at mid off throws at the keeper's end and Chase seems to be gone for all money as he is halfway down the track. However, the throw is wide and Rahim fails to collect it properly.

DRINKS BREAK. The match is hanging by a thread. Two quick wickets for the hosts and they are right on top. Not much batting left for the visitors and they desperately need someone to help Shai to have any hope. Can Roston take care of the chase?

33.4
0
M Mortaza to R Powell, OUT! Straight to the man! Powell comes in and Powell goes back. Poor choice of a shot. One can understand that he wanted to put the attacking gear on but this is just the second ball that he faced and it was not as if that the required run rate was going out of bounds. A length ball around off, coming in, Powell looked to pull it over mid on but could not quite get enough on it, due to the inward movement of the ball. He got cramped for room and only managed to skew it to mid on as the ball hit the inner half of the bat. Simple catch for Soumya Sarkar over there. Windies derailing now. Third wicket in the space of 23 balls. 99 more needed from 98 deliveries.

DRINKS BREAK! Both the teams are even now. Windies need 174 runs and Bangladesh need eight wickets. Shai Hope has played well and stuck around for a while. Bravo gave him good support but could have stayed with him for a longer time. The hosts have bowled well till now and started with spinners like they did in the last game. They would like to take Hope's wicket after the break and put pressure on the Windies.
