Khulna (Bangladesh) - The West Indies suffered a humiliating 160-run defeat at the hands of hosts Bangladesh in the second One-day International of the five-match series here on Sunday.

Batting first, Bangladesh set a target of 292 runs in their stipulated 50 overs, losing six wickets, at the Sheikh Abu Nasser Stadium, 180 km southwest of Dhaka, reports Xinhua.

Riding on the maiden century from opener Anamul Haque, Bangladesh set the massive target in which skipper Mushfiqur Rahim and debutant Mominul Haque contributed 79 runs and 31 runs respectively.

Anamul scored 120 runs off 145 balls and was adjudged the man of the match.

Chasing the target, the West Indies lost their wickets at regular intervals and were bowled out for 132 runs in just 31.1 overs.

The West Indies suffered a seven-wicket defeat against Bangladesh in the first ODI on Friday. The third ODI will be played Dec 5 in Dhaka followed by the fourth and the final Dec 7 and 8 respectively.

A 15-member West Indies squad led by Sammy arrived in Dhaka in the first week of November for series involving two Tests, five ODIs and one Twenty20 against Bangladesh.

The West Indies, which clinched the World Twenty20 title beating Sri Lanka by 36 runs in Colombo in October, had earlier toured Bangladesh for a full series twice, in 2002 and 2011.
