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.

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.
