All-round Sammy Helps West Indies Draw Level

Dhaka: The West Indies beat Bangladesh by 75 runs in the fourth one-day international at Shere Bangla stadium on Friday, levelling the five-match series 2-2.

Darren Sammy then took three wickets as Bangladesh were bowled out for 136 in 34.1 overs.

The first four wickets were all done in by the seam movement. Mominul Haque perished trying to literally pull Bangladesh out of the rut, finding Kieron Pollard at square leg. At 13 for 5, Mushfiqur's task of guiding his side to a position of respectability, let alone victory, was far greater than his opposing number's.

Earlier, Darren Sammy hit a fighting half-century to help the West Indies recover to 211-9 in their 50 overs

The 28-year-old West Indian captain remained unbeaten with a 62-ball 60, studded with two towering sixes and five boundaries. He helped the tourists fight back from 145-7 after Bangladesh put them into bat on a slow spin track.

Bangladeshi spinners led by Mohammad Mahmudullah (3-46), Elias Sunny (2-21) and Abdur Razzak (2-47) had derailed the West Indian innings in the middle overs after the tourists were cruising along well at 71-1.

Dashing West Indian opener Chris Gayle once again failed, dismissed for 16 after he looked set for a big score when he hit paceman Mashrafe Mortaza for a six and four in the sixth over.

He fell in the same over, caught by Sohag Gazi.

Kieran Powell (26) and Marlon Samuels (27) took the score to 71 when the Bangladeshi spinners struck thrice in as many overs, with Sunny taking wickets of both the batsmen in his successive overs.

Off-spinner Mahmudullah then took over, dismissing Kieron Pollard (two), Devon Thomas (10) and Veerasammy Permaul (one) to derail the West Indies.

In between these three wickets, Sammy and Bravo added an invaluable 43 for the seventh wicket. Sammy reached his fourth one-day fifty in the final over, smashing Mahmudullah for his fourth boundary, and getting his team past 200.
