West Indians 195 for 3 (Samuels 102*, Russell 58) beat Bangladesh Cricket Board XI 120 for 6 (Samuels 2-18, Sammy 2-23, Bishoo 1-11, Brathwaite 1-18) by 75 runs
Marlon Samuels continued his return to West Indies cricket by smashing his maiden Twenty20 century as well as taking two wickets, to help the West Indies to a crushing victory against the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI in the final practise game, played at Narayanganj Osmani Stadium, Fatullah. Samuels smashed 102 not out from 56 deliveries, and was accompanied by Andre Russell, who made 58 from 35 balls, as West Indies compiled 195 for 3 in their 20 Overs.
Captain Darren Sammy won the toss and chose to bat, loosing both openers early on. Adrian Barath was dismissed for 4, while his partner Lendl Simmons made 12. Samuels and Russell then constructed a partnership of 102 runs in a little over 10 overs. Samuels was most devastating in the closing overs of the innings, blasting 41 runs to push the West Indians to their total.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board XI always found it difficult to chase down the WINDIES total, managing to make only 120/6 in their effort. Sammy removed both openers, ending with figures of 2 for 23, while Samuels took 2-18, Bishoo 1-11 and Carlos Brathwaite 1-18.
This is the last practice game for the West Indies before the start of the series against Bangladesh starting Tuesday.
