Bangladesh were on top from the moment they won the toss. The slow and spinning surface of Guyana played right into the hands of the Tigers, as the Carribbeans started struggling from the get go.
Mosaddek Hossain, who was brought in place of Taskin Ahmed, gave Bangladesh their first breakthrough as he cleaned up Kyle Mayers. It was all downhill for the hosts, as they started losing one batter after another in quick succession. Nasum Ahmed and Mehidy Hasan were the main stars of the show. Nasum, who debuted in the first ODI, opened the floodgates by removing the next three wickets quickly, including the prize wicket of Nicholas Pooran. Mehidy continued the work of Nasum, and ensured that the middle and lower order had no chance of reviving the match.
Soon, West Indies were all out for 108. Mehidy picked up 4 wickets for the visitors. Nasum took 3 wickets, and bowled 4 maidens in his quota of 10 overs. For the hosts, Keemo Paul top scored with 25.
However, that was the last piece of success in store for the hosts. Skipper Tamim and Litton guided their side home to a much needed series win with an unbeaten stand of 64. Tamim finished the match with a boundary to reach his 53rd ODI half century.
