Mehidy grabs four as Bangladesh bowl out Windies for 148

Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan claimed four wickets as Bangladesh bowled out West Indies for 148 runs in the second one-day international of three-match series at Sher-E-Bangla Stadium, Mirpur on Friday.

Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman also played their part in the demolition act, claiming two wickets each to help the Tigers wrap-up West Indies innings in 43.4 overs.

Mustafiz gave Bangladesh an early breakthrough by removing Sunil Ambris for six with Mehidy taking the catch at point in the fifth over.

Debutant Kjorn Ottley showed some early promise but West Indies kept trembling after Bangladesh introduced spin.

Mehidy led the attack by removing Ottley for 24 and Joshua Da Silva for five in the same over before Shakib joined the party.

Shakib removed Andre McCarthy for only three runs and West Indies were soon reduced to 41-5 with the run out of Kyle Mayers, the highest scorer in the previous match, who was out for a duck.

West Indies skipper Jason Mohammed’s struggle also came to an end when he was struck leg before wicket by Shakib for 11.

The batsman went for a review but the decision stayed as the ball was about to hit the timber.

Hasan Mahmud bowled Nkrumah Bonner for 20 as the visitors continued to struggle against Bangladesh’s pace and spin.

Rovman Powell and Alzarri Joseph put 32 runs for the ninth wicket to help West Indies go past 100-run mark.

Mustafiz, who was almost unplayable in his opening spell giving away just two runs in four overs, ended their resistance by removing Joseph for 17.

Mehidy stumped out Powell for 41 runs to wrap-up West Indies innings and finish with a figure of 4-25, his career best bowling figure.
