Bangladesh vs West Indies Highlights And Cricket Score 2nd Match - ODI Summary

End of Over : 49.4 WI: 256/6

Okay. We have a decider. Not many would have expected that. Will toss play a crucial role? Bangladesh would be wary of that come the decider. Join us on Friday, November 14, 2018 at noon local (0600 GMT) for the third ODI at a different venue - Sylhet. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Aha. Victorious Windies captain Rovman Powell manages a smile. Praises his team for responding well under pressure and is happy that Bangladesh were restricted to 255. Hopes that the bowling continues to be consistent. Admits that there is a worry in the fact that the bowling seems to be excellent only in the last 10 overs, after conceding too many in the first few. On the way the chase was planned, Powell says that the team management knows that there is plenty of batting depth and in further games, the strategy needs to be the way it was tonight - one of the top 3 needs to bat deep.

SHAI HOPE HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH FOR HIS UNBEATEN 146 FROM 144 BALLS. Is happy but wants to reserve his celebrations with one more game to go. Says that he just kept backing himself throughout the chase and in the last 2 overs, cut loose. On the advice given to Keemo Paul, Shai says that he just asked Keemo to bat as straight as possible and is glad that he stayed unbeaten along with him.

Bangladesh captain, Mashrafe Mortaza comes up first for a chat. Admits that he is disappointed and puts it down to not performing under pressure. Hopes to now come back well in the final ODI. Agrees that the choke at the death with the bat was the main setup to this defeat, as they could have scored more runs with so many wickets in hand. But also adds that dropped catches did not help later on in the field. Praises Shai Hope for staying till the end but stresses that with 24 (actually 22) needed from 2 overs, it was a 50-50 game. On Bangladesh's performance overall, Mash is happy with both departments and reckons that they fought hard.

Dew factor? Perhaps. That could be the only reason for Bangladesh's average performance with the ball. Shakib and Mehidy were the only bowlers doing well while the others struggled. Windies played smart cricket, not looking to attack the two spinners and the ploy worked. Consider this - Shakib and Mehidy combined - 19-0-67-1 while Mustafizur, Mortaza and Rubel went for 172 runs in 29 overs combined, for 5 wickets. Dropped catches did not help them either. Expect plenty of criticism from Mortaza. Please stay tuned for the presentation...

And now, finally, Shai Hope. They say that he has got loads of talent and potential. He has shown that here again. Did not allow the pressure to soak in and played confident, risk-free shots for majority of the innings. Now, only for him to be more consistent and become one of the best Windies batsmen in a long time.

Bowlers, you say? Make no mistake, Keemo Paul can bat. He batted responsibly and ensured that Hope was not starved off strike. Indeed - that unbeaten 7th wicket stand worth 71 in 64 balls was the biggest for the Windies and the best of the match.

In any game, partnerships are the key. But more so, in a run chase. The Windies strung decent stands - lost Hemraj early but then got 65 for the second wicket between Hope and Bravo, then another 62 between Hope and Samuels before a bit of a collapse stemmed their progress. It was at this time that Bangladesh thought they had a chance. The visitors slipped from 132/2 to 185/6 and with 71 needed from 66 balls and the bowlers exposed, it looked like the game was over.

A well-scripted run chase. In pursuit of a big target, one of your top three needs to score big. Shai Hope was that man tonight. His unbeaten 146 from just 144 balls provided a wonderful calmness to the others as they kept batting around him. His previous two ODI centuries had resulted in ties - third time, it has been lucky.

Pin-drop silence in the stadium. Now, someone starts to clap. Oh hang on, it is the Windies dugout. What a chase. There were talks of probably toss being the factor in the previous game. It has been proved right here.
