first_imgBangladesh defeated West Indies by 12-runs in the second of three-match T20 International series at the Central Broward Stadium in Florida on Saturday. Shakib Al Hasan lead Bangladesg with the bat and ball to level the series at 1-1.Shakib scored 60 runs as Tamim Iqbal top-scored with 74 to help Bangladesh post a challenging total of 171/5 after they were put in to bat.Shakib Al Hasan returned with the ball to claime the important wickets of Marlon Samuels and opposing skipper Carlos Brathwaite as West Indies were restricted to 159/9 in reply.Mustafizur Rahman also pitched in with three expensive wickets but it was left to spinner Nazmul Islam to bowl the critical final over of the match with the West Indies needing 15 runs for victory.Needing victory to keep the series alive ahead of the final match at the same venue on Sunday, Nazmul Islam conceded just two runs as Bangladesh, ending their five-match losing streak in the format going back to the final of the tri-nation series against India in Colombo last March.”We had a good team talk after that first loss and we came out for this match with a really determined effort,” Shakib saidafter the match. “It was a good team effort overall and I expect us to continue with this sort of performance in the deciding match.”Bangladesh were indebted to their two most experienced players in posting a competitive total with Tamim blazing 74 off 44 balls with four sixes and six fours while captain Shakib contributed 60 off 38 deliveries with one six and nine fours before he fell in the final over of the innings.advertisementSpinner Ashley Nurse claimed two early wickets again and when all-rounder Keemo Paul removed Soumya Sarkar cheaply at 48 for three in the eighth over, Bangladesh were in desperate need of a substantial partnership.Tamim was awarded the “Man of the Match”, and for his stand of 90 for the fourth wicket with skipper Sakib off just 8.2 overs.”I decided to be patient at the start and then accelerate later on,” said Tamim. “Shakib really played an important hand in support and his contribution was crucial.”Player of the Match, [email protected] speaks after the second T20I. pic.twitter.com/W43E163VfzBangladesh Cricket (@BCBtigers) August 5, 2018Despite innings of 43 from both opener Andre Fletcher and all-rounder Rovman Powell, the West Indies stuttered continuously in pursuit of the target and never seemed in control of the required rate, even with so many celebrated big-hitters in their line-up.”I felt we were just too casual in the field and didn’t put it together with the bat as we usually would,” Braithwaite said.”We just didn’t seem to have the same intensity in the last match. We really shouldn’t have been chasing as much as we had to tonight.”West Indies again experimented with Andre Russell at number three in the order but he fell cheaply this time around after being the match-winner in St Kitts. When Marlon Samuels fell shortly after to an excellent boundary catch by Liton Das off Shakib, Bangladesh held the initiative and never released their hold despite occasional flutters in the latter stages of the West Indies innings.(With inputs from PTI)last_img read more
