Pooran, Mayers’ Top knock helped Windies to beat Bangladesh by 5-wickets, clean sweeps by 3-0

Captain Nicholas Pooran came down the pitch and smashed Bangladesh counterpart Mahmudullah over the fence to complete West Indies’ T20I win and series sweep on Thursday.

Pooran’s career-best 74 not out off 39 balls finished off Bangladesh by five wickets with 10 balls remaining.

West Indies scored 169 for 5 in reply to Bangladesh’s 163 for 5 in the third T20I to win the series 2-0. The first match in Dominica last weekend was washed out.

Bangladesh chose to bat first, and a 20-run over plundered off Odean Smith by Litton Das and Afif Hossain gave the visitors a big boost. Their 57-run stand ended when Litton charged Hayden Walsh and edged to point. Litton made 49 off 41 balls.

In the 19th over, Walsh trapped Mahmudullah on 22. And Afif was run out on 50 off 38 balls. He’d hit only two boundaries and two sixes in his second T20I fifty.

Chasing 164 to win, West Indies overcame a spin-heavy attack from Bangladesh. Opener Kyle Mayers got going to his 55 from 38 balls when he blasted his first six off Nasum Ahmed over long off. He linked with Pooran at 43 for 3 in the seventh over. And they combined for 85 in 8.3 overs.

Mayers launched sixes against Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman and Mosaddek Hossain, one of them into the sight screen. He earned his maiden T20I fifty.

In the same 15th over Mayers was out to Nasum, Pooran hit two sixes. The over went for 19 runs.

Pooran maintained the onslaught — his ninth T20I fifty — by hitting Afif over long off in the 18th over and his fifth and final six back over Mahmudullah’s head to end the series.

The three-match ODI series will begin on Sunday, in Georgetown
