Captain, Vice Captain leading Bangladesh

Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim weathered the storm to put Bangladesh back on track in the fourth ODI against West Indies at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur on Friday.

Vice-captain Mahmudullah and skipper Mushfiqur were batting as the Tigers rallied from 13-5 to reach 79-5 after 19 overs.

An inspired spell of fast bowling by skipper Darren Sammy and Kemar Roach broke the back of Bangladesh as the pair shared five wickets.

Sammy grabbed three wickets and Roach two

Sammy had Anamul Haque caught and bowled, forced Naeem Islam to be caught in the slips and then removed Mominul Haque caught at square leg.

Roach bowled Tamim Iqbal for a duck and induced an edge from Nasir Hossain.

Earlier, Sammy top scored with a gutsy 60 not out off 62 balls to help his side reach 211-9 in 50 overs after the hosts won the toss and put their opponents into bat. Darren Bravo added 34.

Mahmudullah was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets, while Elias Sunny and Abdur Razzak took two wickets each. Shohag Gazi and Mashrafe Bin Mortaza claimed one each.

Bangladesh lead the five-match series 2-1. The Tigers won the first two games in Khulna by seven wickets and 160 runs but West Indies won the third one-dayer by four wickets.
