WI vs BAN, 3rd ODI Highlights: Gudakesh Motie’s Career-best ODI figures of 4/23 – WATCH HERE !

Bangladesh swept the one-day international series at Providence Stadium in Guyana by winning the third match against a depleted West Indies bowling attack by four wickets on Saturday.

With their spin attack, the visitors have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series and a victory in the final game helped them complete a clean sweep over the hosts.

Bangladesh was favored to win an 11th consecutive ODI against the West Indies.

Taijul Islam’s 5 for 28 helped Bangladesh bundle out West Indies for 178 before the side chased down the target in 48.3 overs.

West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran Scored a half-century and spinner Gudakesh Motie claimed a four-for but it didn’t enough.

In reply, The West Indies was handicapped further when allrounder Keemo Paul pulled a hamstring and didn’t bowl, and part-time medium-pacer Rovman Powell suffered a side strain after delivering 11 balls.

The West Indies used seven bowlers, but after spinner Gudakesh Motie-Kanhai used up his 10 overs for a team-best 4-23, Bangladesh strolled to the win at 179-6 with nine balls to spare.

While Bangladesh respected Motie-Kanhai, who claimed captain Tamim Iqbal, caught and bowled Liton Das, bowled Afif Hossain and Mosaddek Hossain, the batters comfortably took runs off everyone else.

Tamim got 34 before miscuing a sweep to fine leg and Liton pushed the scoring with 50 off 65 balls.

Mosaddek charged Motie-Kanhai and hit straight to the long off fielder to leave Bangladesh on a worrying 116-5.

But Motie-Kanhai was finished, and Mahmudullah, 26, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 16 not out, stayed calm and collected the runs.

Captain Nicholas Pooran and Keacy Carty, in for Kyle Mayers, spread the ball around for 33 off the next six overs but Carty fell to Nasum and the run rate dropped back.

Pooran’s ninth fifty was his slowest, in 93 balls, and he was eighth man out to Taijul for 73 off 109 balls.

Taijul, Mustafizur and Mosaddek strangled the West indies by bowling a combined 29 overs at less than three per over.
