Bangladesh beat West Indies by 12 runs in 2nd T20



LAUDERHILL, Fla. — Bangladesh beat West Indies by 12 runs in a Twenty20 international cricket match on Saturday to level a three-match series at one apiece.
After winning the toss and batting, Bangladesh made 171-5, before its bowlers made regular breakthroughs to restrict the West Indies to 159-9 in reply.
Bangladesh’s victory was built on a 90-run partnership between Tamim Iqbal and captain Shakib al Hasan, who came together with Bangladesh’s innings faltering after the loss of early wickets.
West Indies spinner Ashley Nurse (2-25) took wickets in consecutive overs at the start of the Bangladesh innings, before seamer Keemo Paul (2-39) dismissed Soumya Sarkar for 18 to leave the visitors at 48-3 in the eighth over.
Shakib, 60 off 38 balls, then joined Tamim, 74 from 44 balls, to steady the innings for Bangladesh.
The West Indies’ also had a shaky start to its innings, losing Evin Lewis lbw to Mustafizer Rahman in the second over.
Mustafizer (3-50) then took the prize wicket of Andre Russell caught behind for 17 in the fourth over, before experienced duo of Marlon Samuels and Dinesh Ramdin also departed cheaply to leave West Indies at 58-4.
Andre Fletcher and Rovman Powell, 43 from 34, then combined for a 48-run stand before spinner Nazmul Islam had Fletcher (43 from 38 balls) caught by Shakib to end the revival.
Nazmul (3-28) took the wickets of Nurse and Paul in the final over to secure the series-levelling victory for Bangladesh, after it lost the first game by seven wickets on Tuesday.
The final game of the series is at the same venue on Sunday.

Preview: After a comfortable seven-wicket victory in the first Twenty20 International, Carlos Brathwaite and Co. are looking to secure the series in the second game.

While the Windies are keen on continuing their winning form, Bangladesh will look to level the series in Florida on Saturday. Shakib Al Hasan and his men, who clinched the ODI series 2-1, will want a similar result in the T20Is as well.

Both sides rely heavily on their specialists in the format, and the result will come down to which line-up clicks better on the day.

As pointed out by their skipper after the game, Bangladesh lacked a finishing impetus in the first match. While their middle order tried to mitigate the quick fall of wickets at the top of the order, they couldn't accelerate in the crunch moments of the innings.

Openers Tanim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar, who were both dismissed for golden ducks on the day, will want to turn things around.

The Windies, meanwhile, will want another strong all-round performance. Andre Russell was the star in the first game, with figures of 1/27 and 35* off 21 deliveries in the rain-hit chase. His contribution, along with that of all-rounders like Braithwaite and Ashley Nurse, will be key.
