WI win ODI series against Bangladesh

St. George's:

West Indies completed a 3-0 whitewash of Bangladesh by registering a seven-wicket victory over the minnows in the third and final one-day international.Chasing a modest target of 119 in 25 overs, West Indies hit the jackpot with five balls to spare and never looked in danger of conceding the match. Left-hander Devon Smith, later named man-of-the-match, hit one six and one four in the top score of 39 not out from 70 balls to anchor West Indies to the target in front of his vocal home crowd. After rain delayed the start of play by nearly four hours, Dwayne Smith unveiled another side of his cricket potential, when he captured three wickets for 24 runs from four overs to help West Indies restrict Bangladesh to 118 for seven from their reduced allotment of 25 overs. Brief flashes of brilliance from Ricardo Powell and Dwayne Smith, the man-of-the-series winner, gave West Indies early momentum in the chase before they were dismissed.Devon Smith, Shivnarine Chanderpaul and West Indies captain Ramnaresh Sarwan then helped their team cruise to a comfortable win.
