Samuels' 58 in vain as Mushfiqur stars

Dhaka, Bangladesh, CMC – Marlon Samuels stroked a half-century but Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim responded with a superb, unbeaten 41 to fire the hosts to a three-wicket win in the one-off Twenty20 International on Tuesday night.

The right-handed Samuels’s 58 formed the foundation of the West Indies’ 132 for eight after they were sent in at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Windies target Top 5 by 2015

Dhaka, Bangladesh – As he unveiled the trophy for the T20 International, West Indies skipper Darren Sammy also unveiled his team’s plan to move up the International Cricket Council’s rankings.

First ball in Tuesday’s T20 International at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium is 5 pm (7 am Eastern Caribbean Time/6 am Jamaica Time).

Sammy, the hard-working allrounder, revealed the plan to go top five in the cricketing nation by 2015. He indicated that the long walk has already started and the team is committed to making strides as players and as a unit.

Little Mushfiqur ready for big job

Dhaka, Bangladesh – The Bangladeshi Tigers admit they have a huge job ahead of them if they are to defeat the West Indies in Tuesday’s T20 International. The match at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium signals the start of the series between the two teams – which will also feature three ODIs and two Test matches.

It will no doubt be a huge challenge for the Tigers when they play the shortest version of the game after a gap of almost one and a half years, and after five years at home.

Samuels settled and ready to deliver

Dhaka, Bangladesh – Marlon Samuels was brilliant with both bat and ball as the West Indies easily defeated the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI in their T20 warm-up match in Fatullah on Sunday. According to the allrounder the performance was the ideal preparation for the upcoming T20 International against Bangladesh on Tuesday at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur. First ball is 5 pm (7 am Eastern Caribbean Time/6 am Jamaica Time).

Shakib ready to face Windies

Dhaka, Bangladesh – Former Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan is preaching calm as his team prepares to face the West Indies in the upcoming series. Shakib, the left-handed batsman and left-arm spinner, was recently replaced by wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim in the top job.
