West Indies Defeats Bangladesh In First And Second ODI

In the second O.D.I., Bangladesh scored 220 in their 50 overs with Captain Mushfiqur Rahim scoring 69 and Nasir Hossain 50.

West Indies reached their target at 221 for 2 with Simmons scoring 88, Samuels 80 not out and Danza Hyatt 39 with four sixes and two fours, West Indies has already won the three-match series 2-0. Kemar Roach got 3 for 49 and Ravi Rampaul 2-27. West Indies won by 8 wickets.

Concerns Over Adrian Barath’s Harmstring Injury

West Indies opening batsman Adrian Barath hamstring problems continue to affect him resulting in him being out of the second ODI game against Bangladesh.

Barath was affected by the same problem during the last West Indies tour of Australia and Sri Lanka and it kept him out of the World Cup. Barath’s batting is needed in Tests, more than Limited Overs, for the West Indies have players that can be very effective at the top in Limited Overs but not so many in Tests. It is hoped that Barath will overcome his injuries and would be ready for the Test matches, for he is of vital importance to that game.
