Hope can not inspire Windies as Bangladesh cruise to series win

Bangladeshi bowler Mashrafe Mortaza gestures as he adjusts the field during the first Twenty20 cricket match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in Colombo, Sri Lanka. At the end of 10 overs, West Indies were 45 for 1. I won't get a lot of wickets every day but there will be the odd day when I get four or five wickets. The team will be captained by Carlos Brathwaite, with interim ODI captain Rovman Powell as his deputy. The opener reached his century off 121 balls, but Bangladesh restricted West Indies to 198 for 9 in 50 overs.

Bangladesh's bowlers remained disciplined on a sluggish wicket, stemming the run flow.

Liton made 23 before he became the first batsman dismissed in the innings but Soumya and Tamim added 131 runs for the second wicket to take excitement out of the contest.

With the right-hander running risk of fall short of partner, Hope hit Sakib over the long off to bring up his fourth ODI century. It might be slightly easier for batsmen to get going from the start in Sylhet, but guarding against a collapse has to be quite high on their priority list.Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan would all be disappointed with their fifties given how they were well set at the crease for bigger things. Sarkar and Iqbal added 131 runs for the 2nd wicket.

West Indies: Shai Hope (wk), Darren Bravo, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Marlon Samuels, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Rovman Powell (captain), Fabian Allen Keemo Paul, Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach.
