WI poised for big score

West Indies scored 166 for 3 at the end of 33 overs against Bangladesh in their World Cup match in Taunton on Monday.

Earlier, after winning the toss and electing to bowl first, Bangladesh bowlers maintained tight line and length to restrict the West Indies batsmen to make an explosive start.

Big hitter Chris Gayle was sent back to the pavilion with six runs on the board and on a personal score on zero.

Nevertheless, some big hitting by Lewis and able support from Hope took the Caribbeans to a position to capitalise on.

Lewis scored 70 off 67 deliveries, while Pooran scored 25 off 30 deliveries.

Hope and Hetmyer were at the crease on 55 and 7 till the writing of this report.
