Bangladesh beat the world champion West Indies by 19 runs via Duckworth-Lewis method in the rain-affected third T20I of the three-match series to clinch the series 2-1 at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida. Chasing 185, West Indies innings were stopped at 135 losing seven wickets in 17.1 overs and couldn't be resumed. In DLS method, Bangladesh win the match by 19 runs. Mustafizur Rahman once again tormented through the Windies batting line-up picking up 3 for 31.
Bangladesh withstood a withering assault from Andre Russell to complete a series-clinching 19-run victory on the DLS Method over the West Indies in the rain-affected deciding final fixture of their three-match T20 International Series on Sunday (Aug 5).
Russell smashed 47 off just 21 deliveries with six towering sixes and one four to keep the Caribbean side in with a chance of surpassing Bangladesh’s formidable total of 184 for five at the Central Broward Stadium in Florida.
However his dismissal at the start of the 18th over, giving left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman his third wicket of the innings, effectively sealed the result in favour of Bangladesh.
Russell’s departure at 135 for seven off 17.1 overs was immediately followed by a sharp shower which ended any further prospect of play, although there was little chance of the West Indies getting anywhere close to the target off a full 20 overs with all their big-hitters gone.
Having been thrashed in both Tests at the start of the tour, this T20 series triumph follows on the 2-1 success in the One-Day International contest for the Tigers.
