Bangladesh posted their first win on the tour of West Indies with a six-wicket victory on Sunday in the first ODI in Guyana. Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bowl in a match reduced to 41 overs per innings because of a wet outfield.
West Indies never got going with the bat, as they stumbled their way to a small total of 149/9. Shoriful Islam picked up 4 wickets and Mehidy Hasan Miraz picked up 3 scalps.
The last stand of Anderson Phillips and Jaydon Seales showed their grit to stitch a stand of 39 runs. 
Bangladesh lost Litton Das early in their chase. But captain Tamim Iqbal and Najmul Hossain Shanto scored runs at a quick rate to get Bangladesh going in their chase of 150. Tamim, who was looking brilliant, was run out for 33 of 25.
Shanto kept playing the way he was, with Mahmudullah dropping the anchor. Bangladesh might have been in a pickle as they lost Shanto and Afif Hossain at quick successions. However, Mahmudullah and Nurul Hasan ensured Bangladesh win the match.
The chase was completed by the Tigers with 55 deliveries to spare. Mahmudullah top scored with a 41.
