West Indies 169 for 5 (Pooran 74*, Mayers 55) beat Bangladesh 163 for 5 (Afif 50, Litton 49) by five wickets
Pooran’s career-best 74 not out off 39 balls finished off Bangladesh by five wickets with 10 balls remaining.
West Indies scored 169 for 5 in reply to Bangladesh’s 163 for 5 in the third T20I to win the series 2-0. The first match in Dominica last weekend was washed out.
In the 19th over, Walsh trapped Mahmudullah on 22 and Afif was run out on 50 off 38 balls. He’d hit only two boundaries and two sixes in his second T20I fifty.
Mayers launched sixes against Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman and Mosaddek Hossain, one of them into the sight screen. He earned his maiden T20I fifty.
In the same 15th over Mayers was out to Nasum, Pooran hit two sixes. The over went for 19 runs.
Pooran maintained the onslaught, his ninth T20I fifty, by hitting Afif over long-off in the 18th over and his fifth and final six back over Mahmudullah’s head to end the series.
The three-match ODI series will begin on Sunday, in Georgetown.
