Bangladesh, on Wednesday, July 13, defeated West Indies by 9 wickets in the second ODI at the Providence Stadium to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

The Tigers looked completely out of sorts in the Test and T20I series, but put their best foot forward in the 50-over format.

After winning the rain-curtailed game by six wickets, Tamim Iqbal and Co played exceptionally to seal the fate of the series.

After opting to bowl first, they shot the West Indies out for 108 in 35 overs. Barring Keemo Paul, who scored an unbeaten 25, none of the other batters from the home team put up a fight.

Mehidy Hasan Miraz picked up a four-wicket haul and broke the backbone of the Caribbean batting. Nasum Ahmed was hard to get away as he picked up three wickets and conceded runs at an economy rate of 1.90 to go with four maidens.

Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, who replaced Taskin Ahmed in the playing eleven, got the prized wicket of Rovman Powell. West Indies registered their second-lowest ODI score at home.

Tamim Iqbal and Najmul Hossain Shanto stitched together a 48-run stand for the opening wicket to lay the platform for Bangladesh in the run-chase. Shanto scored 20 runs before getting out to Gudakesh Motie.

Tamim, on the other hand, went on to stay unbeaten on 50 with seven fours, helping the Tigers chase the target down in 20.4 overs.

The victory also happened to be their 10th successive against the West Indies in ODI cricket. The Caribbean team hasn’t beaten the Tigers since December 2018.

The third and final ODI of the series is set to take place on Saturday, July 16 at the same venue.
