04-Mar-2011 / ( Cricket - Previous | Next | Last )

Irrated fans stoned the bus carrying the West Indies team after Darren Sammy's boys the beat Bangladesh by 9 wickets at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

It was a miserable Friday for the Bangladesh cricket team. Bangladeshi batsmen were not able to face the West Indies bowlers and lost all their wickets for a mere 58 runs in the 19th over of the innings.

The West Indies comfortably achieved this target for the loss of only 1 wicket in 12.2 overs.

The game started at 2 pm in the afternoon. Shakib Al Hasan, the captain of the Bangladesh team, decided to bat first after winning the toss. 4 of Bangladesh's batsmen - Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shafiul Islam and Rubel Hassan - returned to the pavilion for a duck. The highest scorer was Zunaed Siddique, who hit 4 fours and scored 25 runs off 27 balls.

Darren Sammy and Kemar Roach of West Indies both took 3 wickets each.

West Indies lost the wicket of their opener Devon Smith in the 6th over when the score was 29 runs. From there, Chris Gayle and Darren Bravo took their team to victory. Chris hit 6 fours in a personal score of 37 from 26 balls.

Karen Roach was declared man of the match.

Later, in a shameful follow-up, angry fans pelleted stones at the bus carrying players of the West Indies team. Mustafa Kamal, the president of the Bangladesh Cricket Board apologized and ordered an investigation into the incident.
