Mustafizur Rahman's four-wicket haul restricts West Indies to 247


Hope added 100 runs for the fifth wicket with captain Jason Holder, who made 62 off 76 balls with three fours and a six, and ensured West Indies' bowlers have a decent score to bowl at.


West Indies made a bold start when Sunil Ambris and Hope struck six fours in the first five overs.


Ambris, who struck four of them, however, fell in the sixth over when he guided Mashrafe Mortaza to Soumya Sarkar at first slip.


Darren Bravo's lean patch continued when he fell lbw to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, who had dropped him in the previous over.


Bangladesh imposed themselves on the West Indies batsmen until the 30th over, going through 103 balls without conceding a boundary, with Mustafizur and Shakib bowling through the bulk of this phase.


Mustafizur got his third and fourth wickets in the 49th over, first getting Ashley Nurse caught at the deep midwicket boundary before trapping debutant Raymon Reifer lbw off his penultimate ball.
