Bangla score 52-run win

Bangla score 52-run win

Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan on his way to a  half-century in the first one-dayer on Sunday. AFPThe tourists won the first of three ODI games by 52 runs, making 246 for nine before bowling out West Indies for 194.

Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan continued his good form with a half-century to build on Mohammad Ashraful's 57 as Bangladesh made a strong total.

West Indies then lost both openers cheaply in a poor start to their reply.
Al Hasan made the smart decision to open the bowling with spinner Abdur Razzak, who trapped Dale Richards leg before with his second delivery.

Andre Fletcher was bowled by seamer Syed Rasel, playing on, as the Caribbeans fell to eight for two.

Devon Smith struck a smart 65 and received some good support from Dave Bernard (38) but West Indies were never really in the running.

Razzak finished with figures of four for 39 to leave his team confident of completing a Test and one-day double series victory in Tuesday's second game.
