Khulna: Anamul Haque became the third youngest Bangladeshi to hit a hundred before the home team spun out the West Indies for their biggest one-day win of 160 runs in Khulna on Sunday.

Anamul scored a dominating 120 in Bangladesh’s imposing 292-6 before spinners Abdur Razzak (3-19) and Sohag Gazi (3-21) dismissed the tourists for a low score of 132 in 31.1 overs in the second one-day for a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

Bangladesh won Friday’s first match by seven wickets, also in Khulna.

But the hosts took a giant leap on Sunday as they achieved their biggest one-day win, improving on their 146-run win over Scotland in Dhaka six years ago.

The West Indies were never in the hunt for the big target chase, losing wickets at regular intervals as the Bangladeshi spinners once again made stroke-play difficult for the batsmen on a slow pitch.

Only Darren Bravo (28) and Kieron Pollard (25) offered some resistance as the top-order West Indian batsmen Chris Gayle (15), Marlon Samuels (16) and Lendl Simmons (9) failed once more.

Bravo added 41 for the third wicket with Samuels before left-arm spinner Razzak struck thrice, dismissing Dwayne Smith (0) in his second over and had Bravo and Devon Thomas (0) in his fourth. (AFP)

Brief scores:

Bangladesh: 292-6 (A Haque 120, M Rahim 79; R Rampaul 5-49)

West Indies: 131 all out (D Bravo 28; A Razzak 3-19, S Gazi 3-21)
