| 3rd ODI vs Bangladesh
DHAKA, Bangladesh – A career-best, fourth One-day International hundred from Marlon Samuels followed up Sunil Narine’s most impactful spell of the tour to lead West Indies to a four-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the third ODI on Wednesday here.
Samuels continued his amazing year of run scoring with a typically silky 126 that included 17 fours and two sixes from 149 balls, as the Windies successfully chased 228 for victory under the lights before 22,724 spectators at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium.
Narine, gaining turn and bounce from the hard, true pitch, had laid the groundwork for the victory, when he collected 4-37 from his allotted 10 overs, as the Bangladeshis were dismissed for 227 in 49.1 overs.
The result meant that the Windies now trail 1-2 in the five-match series which continues on Friday at the same venue, where the two teams also play the final match the following day.
