    In a must-win match, Evin Lewis and Keemo Paul brought their A-game to Dhaka, as the Windies secured a 2-1 series win over Bangladesh.

    The third game saw the Windies batting first, with Evin Lewis in menacing form, scoring 89 runs off just 36 balls with 6 fours and 8 sixes in the innings.

    Nicholas Pooran chipped in with 29 runs off 24 balls, as the Windies were 190 all out in 19.2 overs, thanks to Mahmudullah, Shakib al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman’s three wickets apiece.

    Bangladesh never saw their way with the bat, except for a knock of 43 from Liton Das as Keemo Paul took a career-best 5-15 and Fabian Allen took 2-19.

    Lewis copped the Man of the Match Award, and he was the second highest run scorer for the Windies in this series, behind Shai Hope.

    Shakib al Hasan was named Man of the Series for his outstanding performance with both bat and ball.
