Bangladesh win 1st ODI against WI


    The West Indies have succumbed to a woeful 6-wicket loss to Bangladesh in their 1st ODI in Providence, Guyana.

    Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bowl in a match reduced to 41 overs per innings due to a wet outfield.

    The Windies had a lackluster showing, accumulating only 149/9.

    The top-score was 33 from Shamarh Brooks.

    Medium pacer Shoriful Islam took an ODI career-best of 4/34, while off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz grabbed 3/36.

    Mahmudullah then hit an unbeaten 41 and Najmul Hossain Shanto contributed 37 as the visitors reached 151/4 in 31.5 overs.

    Mehidy Hasan Miraz was named Player of the Match.

    The 2nd ODI will be played at the same venue on Wednesday.
