The West Indies suffered an embarrassing 160-run defeat to Bangladesh as rookie Anamul Haque hit a century in the second one-day international here yesterday

Bangladesh claimed a second successive win to lead the five-match series 2-0 after a dominant display.

Anamul was the mainstay of the home side's 292 for six and then Abdur Razzaq and Sohag Gazi claimed three wickets each as the visitors were dismissed for a below-par 132 with almost 19 overs to spare.

The hosts were asked to bat first in what was expected to be another low-scoring match, having dismissed the tourists for less than 200 in the opening game.

Anamul had scored 41 on debut in that game as half-centuries from Tamim Iqbal and Naeem Islam saw Bangladesh home, but today some fine late scoring helped push the Bangladesh total closer to 300.
