Samuels fashions WI's victory

Star batsman Marlon Samuels struck a 149-ball 126 (17x4, 2x6) as the West Indies registered a four-wicket win over Bangladesh in the third one-dayer here on Wednesday.

With this win, the visitors pulled one back to cut Bangla’s lead to 2-1 in the five-match series.

 Sunil Narine returned to his best as the wily spinner took four wickets to restrict Bangladesh to 227 all out at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium.

The tourists, vying to keep the five-match series alive after losing the first two one-dayers, sent Bangladesh into bat and kept them in check through Narine’s 4/37 and left-armer Veerasammy Permaul who finished with 2/40.
