commentary

That's all from here then, folks! 2-0 in the Tests and 2-1 in the ODIs. The Bangladeshis have been dominant in every game except for a flat performance in the 2nd ODI, that too can be credited to the brilliance of Shai Hope. The Windies now only have the T20Is to take something away from this tour. It begins here in Sylhet with the first T20I scheduled on the 17th of December, Monday. Join us for that one. Till then, goodbye and take care!

Bangladesh skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza, says it was a good match and Shai Hope played another fine knock, but his team delivered on the whole which is why the Tigers won. Credits the spinners and his pacers for doing well throughout the series. Applauds the effort from his players and reckons it's been a collective effort, which helped them win. Ends by saying that Windies are a good T20I side, so they will be wary of their threat.

Man of the Series, Shai Hope, (On his injury) says still feels a little dizzy but he's holding on fine. Adds that he's pleased to have done well but feels disappointed as well as his side couldn't get over the line. Reckons that it's unfortunate they couldn't clinch the series, but hopes they can win the T20I series.

Man of the Match, Mehidy Hasan, says he's really happy to have been able to contribute to the team's win. Credits Shimron Hetmyer's wicket to Mushfiqur Rahim as he was the one who suggested that Mehidy come back into the attack for him. Feels happy with his performance and wants to keep improving himself.

Windies skipper, Rovman Powell, (On Oshane Thomas' absence) says they thought it would be better to have an extra spinner in the team given the conditions. Credits Shai Hope for the way he played but is disappointed nobody else could support him well enough. Adds that there are a lot of things to rectify, so will work hard on that. Mentions that this venue is beautiful and the facilities in general in Bangladesh are amazing.

Bangladesh were not pushed and they strolled over the line as Mushfiqur came in the end to complete the formalities. Windies were not helped by the fact that their main bowler Kemar Roach limped off in the 5th over of the chase. All in all, another series lost by Windies and they will be disappointed as they made a comeback in the 2nd match, but couldn't back it up in the final game. Shai Hope was the one shining light as he made 297 runs in the 3 games, remaining not out with centuries in the last two. He too did not take the field in the 2nd innings with a knock to his head. Plenty to work on for the visitors, especially in the batting department. It's something they would like to sort out fast.

That's that and the crowd is going bonkers at Sylhet. A pretty easy end to what was billed to be a close decider. The chase of 199 is done and dusted in the 39th over itself. Bangladesh have shown that they are a formidable team at home once again. Coming to the chase, there was not once a moment wherein one felt that the hosts were in any kind of trouble. The Windies' bowlers were taken to the cleaners first by Tamim and then by Sarkar during the course of the innings. Sarkar especially looked ominous for as long as he was there in the middle and made a brilliant 80 off 81 deliveries. Tamim on the other hand, remained unbeaten on 81 in the end and will be really confident as this was a much-needed performance after an injury layoff.

Windies players confidently appeal but the umpire turns it down. They are confident and go for the review. Ball Tracker shows that the ball was just clipping the leg stump. Windies don't get the wicket but they don't lose the review either.

Review taken. It's for an lbw decision against Soumya Sarkar. Difficult to tell, but it could be going down leg.

K Paul to L Das, OUT! Liton is on his way back to the pavilion. Short on off by Keemo, Das tries to pull it but the ball is not short enough to pull and the bat turns in his hands and goes straight to the fielder at mid on. Powell makes no mistake and takes a simple catch by moving to his right. First wicket down for Bangladesh.

Powerplay 2 has been signalled. That means a maximum of 4 fielders are allowed outside the ring till the end of the 40th over.

R Chase to T Iqbal, Flighted delivery on off, Tamim looks to defend but gets an inside edge onto the pads. The ball goes to the leg side. The batsmen take a quick run.

Kemar Roach walks off the field. He was feeling his hamstring after the last two balls that he bowled. Could be a huge blow for the Windies if he can't bowl any more in this match. Sunil Ambris is on the field in his place.

K Roach to T Iqbal, FIVE! Unnecessary! Windies cannot afford to give away anything for free defending such a small total. Length delivery on middle, Tamim flicks to the right of Chase, who's fielding at square leg. He picks up the ball and has a shy at the stumps at the non strikers end but misses. The ball is out of the reach of mid-on fielder who was backing up and the ball runs away to the fence. To add insult to injury it looks like Roach has pulled his hamstring.

K Roach to T Iqbal, Length delivery on off, the ball moves in with the angle and Tamim flicks it to get off the mark.

We are back for the chase. Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das are out in the middle and they will look to provide a good start to their team. Kemar Roach will start proceedings with the new ball for Windies. A slip in place for him. Here we go...
