The Caribbean side had made 152 for 1 after the game was curtailed to a 24-over affair, but as per D/L method the Tigers were set this big target.

If they can make it a successfully chase, it will be the Tigers’ first ever tournament final win, after heartbreaks on six previous occasions.

Incessant rains meant the game was suspended for hours midway through the match and it did break the momentum West Indies openers Sunil Ambris and Shai Hope were having at the beginning.

Put into bat first, the duo had put 131 after 20.1 overs, but rain stopped their charge.

Once the game resumed, Mehidy Hasan Miraz put an end to in-form Hope’s innings. The batsman made 74 off 64 balls thanks to six fours and three sixes.

Ambris was not out on 69 at the end of the 24th over. Mustafizur Rahman had a game to forget, conceding 50 in 5 overs.

Bangladesh are without key player Shakib Al Hasan, who is nursing a back injury.
