Tigers win in last-over thriller

MNA Sports Desk: Another Bangladesh comeback, another major contribution from their seniors. Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal powered the visitors to a 12-run win against West Indies to bring them back level in the T20I series, reported news agency.

Towards the end of the West Indies chase, Mustafizur Rahman and Nazmul Islam took three wickets each, but the win was set up by Tamim, who top-scored with a quickfire 44-ball 74, while Shakib complemented his half-century with figures of 2 for 19 from four overs, reports cricinfo.com.

Shakib and Tamim added 90 runs for the fourth wicket. Tamim’s innings had his best strike-rate in a 50-plus knock, while Shakib reached his first T20I fifty in more than two years, spanning 17 innings. West Indies would rue plenty of mistakes, none more so than losing four early wickets in their chase of 172.
