A- A A+

Dashing Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal hit his 11th century in the series decider 3rd ODI at Warner Park, Basseterre in St Kitts.

Tamim scored 103 off 124 balls with 7 boundaries and 2 sixes before Devendra Bishoo picked him up.    

Earlier in the first match against West Indies, Tamim managed to score 130 runs off 160 hitting three sixes and ten fours. He also hit his 42nd half-century in the second ODI.

Bangladesh took lead in the series with a comfortable 48-run win in the first match while the West Indies bounced back in the evenly-contested series, winning the second game by three runs in a last-over thriller and set the stage for the finale. 

A win in the 3rd game for Bangladesh means 3rd ODI series victory against the West Indies in their eight bilateral series since 1999, and first series victory in this format under Mashrafe Bin Mortaza’s leadership. 

In their previous 30 ODIs, Bangladesh won eight matches against the West Indies. Of them, two were ended with no results.
