Bangladesh Thrash Windies

Bangladesh (Cricinfo): Bangladesh recorded their biggest win in ODIs in terms of runs, thrashing a listless West Indies by 160 runs to take a 2-0 lead and are in prime position to claim the five-match series. The spinners delivered for the second game in succession, but Bangladesh owed their early dominance in this match largely to Anamul Haque, who became the third teenager from the country to score a ODI century, and Mushfiqur Rahim for propelling them to 292. The cushion of runs was more than enough for the spinners to run through the line-up.

West Indies opted to bowl first, primarily to nip out as many wickets as possible using the early morning moisture and then exploit the easier batting conditions in the afternoon. As it transpired, batting appeared twice as tough with the psychological setback of chasing 293 against a four-pronged spin attack that had rendered the match a no-contest even before the halfway stage of the chase. Bangladesh needed just over 31 overs to wrap things up and bettered their previous highest victory margin of 146 runs against Scotland in 2006. Ravi Rampaul's 5 for 49 was a forgotten statistical highlight.

West Indies had some semblance of control in only two, albeit brief, phases. The first was when they took two early wickets when the seamers had some assistance and the second when Bangladesh inexplicably took their foot off the pedal during the batting Powerplay. In between, Bangladesh ruthlessly choked the opposition.

The moisture on the pitch had disappeared after the first half hour, handing the advantage to the batsmen, which Mushfiqur and Anamul relished during their 174-run stand. Sunil Narine's fortunes on tour took a turn for the worse as the pair toyed with his bowling, which lacked the turn and bite he is normally associated with. Mushfiqur was liberal with the sweep, and also employed the late cut. Anamul improvised well against Narine, bringing up his maiden fifty with a late cut. With little seam movement on offer, Anamul was able to smash it through the line despite minimal footwork. He was strong on the pull as well, fetching boundaries off Dwayne Smith and Narine.

Bangladesh 292 for 6 (Anamul 120, Mushfiqur 79, Rampaul 5-49) beat West Indies 132 (Bravo 28, Gazi 3-21, Razzak 3-19) by 160 runs
