Bangladesh completed a series sweep against a depleted West Indies after hammering the visiting side by 120 runs in the third and final ODI in Chattogram on Monday. Bangladesh bowled out West Indies for 177 after posting 297/6 on Monday.

Bangladesh's bowlers made the best use of their home conditions and never let West Indies out of their sight. Powell counterattacked with his 47 but the West Indies' batsmen lacked intent from the start.

Skipper Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah all hit half-centuries to guide Bangladesh to a challenging total after West Indies captain Jason Mohammed won the toss and decided to bowl first.

Tamim scored 64 from 80 balls at the top of the order to establish the innings while Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah paced the innings toward the end. All three scored 64.

"I think lot of credit goes to the coaching staff and teammates (for his successful comeback). Their backing and support helped me a lot, especially in the first game," Shakib al Hasan, who won the Man of the Series, said in the presentation ceremony.

"I always knew that I needed some match time. After the first game, I got the confidence that I needed and as the series went on, I got better. Our fast bowlers and spinners complement each other.

"We have a good ODI bowling setup now. There is a lot of competition for spots and it's been healthy for us. First of all, I need to see how I'll pull up tomorrow. At this point, the groin doesn't look alright but we need to see after 24 hours," Shakib further added.

Bangladesh had won the first two matches by six wickets and seven wickets respectively.
