T20 World Cup: Windies beat Bangladesh in last-ball thriller

DUBAI – West Indies Friday defeated Bangladesh by three runs in the 23rd match of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

While chasing a target of 143 runs, Liton Dass (44) and Mahmudullah tried to help Bangladesh bag the victory but could not make it through. 

Bangladesh could score 139 runs in 20 overs. 

Earlier, Bangladesh skipper Mahmud Ullah has won the toss and opted to bowl first against defending champions.

The do or die fixture will start in Sharjah Cricket Stadium at 3:00 PM PST. Both sides were thrown haywire by back-to-back losses, as West Indies lost to England and Bangladesh were defeated by the Morgan-led squad from 8 wickets.

The result of today’s crucial game will decide the future of both squads in Group 1 as the losing team will have no more chances to qualify for the semifinals.

Disgruntled West Indies are the favorite to win the 23rd match of the T20 World Cup 2021 as they had played 31 T20 World Cup matches and won 17 while Bangladesh has a better position than West Indies in ICC T20 World Rankings.
