Bangladesh vs West Indies T20I Series: Interesting stats

Enter c
Shakib Al Hasan was instrumental in winning the series for his team.

The visitors started this tour horribly when they were bundled out for 43 in the Antigua test and lost the first test by an innings. But since then it has been an upward climb. They completely turned the tables around in the ODI series.

After registering their first ever series win in West Indies, they started the T20I series on a high. They lost the first game but bounced back superbly in the later matches. The experienced duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal helped their team post a decent total in the second match which was defended nicely by their bowlers.

In the series decider, it was Liton Das's magnificent knock of 61 which set it up for them and later bowlers did their job. The final scoreline was 2-1 in favours of Bangladeshi team.
