Spinners set up big Bangladesh win

Bangladesh (CRICINFO): Darren Sammy wanted West Indies to win the ODI series 5-0, but his team's batting revealed a self-destructive ability in the opening game in Khulna that shut out any hopes of a clean sweep. Instead, it was Bangladesh who were the winners, having beaten West Indies comprehensively despite the absence of their best player, Shakib Al Hasan, to injury. On a safely negotiable pitch, West Indies imploded against spin and lacked intensity in their defence of 199 after Tamim Iqbal delivered an attacking start to the chase. Off spinner Sohag Gazi shone again, picking up four wickets on ODI debut to follow up an impressive start to his Test career, and he was well supported by left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak, who chipped in with three. 

There was some early assistance for seamers on the Khulna track but the spinners, who wreaked the most havoc, didn't find much turn or bounce. West Indies were not victims of the conditions, but their own lack of restraint when the situation demanded more caution than they exercised. Three of their batsmen holed out in the deep, including Chris Gayle in the 11th over shortly after he had smashed two sixes and four fours off seamers Mashrafe Mortaza and Abul Hasan. Gayle had welcomed Gazi into Test cricket with a six off his first ball; he tried to repeat the dose off Gazi's second ball in ODIs, but found Tamim at long-on who back-pedalled and took a difficult catch over his head just inside the ropes.  Bangladesh 201 for 3 (Tamim 58, Naeem 50*) beat West Indies 199 (Narine 36, Gazi 4-29, Razzak 3-39) by seven wickets
