Chittagong: Shakib Al Hasan bagged four wickets to set up Bangladesh’s consolation eight-wicket victory over the West Indies in the third and final one-day international on Tuesday.

The tourists were dismissed for their second-lowest total of 61 after being put in to bat, with left-arm spinner Shakib finishing with a career-best 4-16 off five disciplined overs.

The West Indies’ lowest total in one-day internationals was 54 against South Africa in Cape Town in 2004.

Bangladesh, who had lost the first two one-dayers, achieved the small target with 30 overs to spare. Opener Tamim Iqbal top-scored with an unbeaten 36.

The West Indies earlier lost their last nine wickets for 28 runs in a dramatic collapse, with Shakib, off-spinner Nasir Hossain (2-3) and paceman Shafiul Islam (2-21) doing the maximum damage.

Opener Kieran Powell (25) and debutant Carlos Brathwaite (11) were the only batsmen to reach double figures in West Indies’ dismal batting performance. (AFP)
