Bangladesh beat West Indies to win ODI series 3-2
A spirited Bangladesh led by all-rounder Mohammad Mamhmudullah edged out the West Indies in the fifth and final one-day by two wickets in Dhaka on Saturday, taking the series 3-2.
Mahmudullah took 2-38 to help the home team bowl the tourists for 217 in 48 overs and then scored a polished 48 to help the home team chase down the target for the loss of eight wickets with six overs to spare. Bangladesh won the first match by seven wickets and the second by 160 runs — both in Khulna.
The West Indies levelled the series with a four wicket win in the third and 75 runs in the fourth. Both teams will now play a T20I in Dhaka tomorrow.
