Shakib Al Hasan on Wednesday made a stunning return to worldwide cricket as Bangladesh defeated West Indies by six wickets in the first ODI of the three-match series here at the Shere Bangla National Stadium.

It will be the second game of the three-match ODI series between Bangladesh and West Indies. Mayers hit a polished 40.

What are the timings of Bangladesh vs West Indies 2nd ODI?

Left-arm spinner Shakib-al-Hasan, in his first match for Bangladesh since serving a one-year ban, ripped through the innings with a spell of four for eight which earned him Man-of-the-Match honours. Shere Bangla National Stadium (Mirpur, Dhaka) will host this second ODI of this series, which will be a day game. Batters need to run hard between the wickets as the outfield is not that quick.

Who will win the toss?

Before making a comeback to global cricket, Shakib played nine games in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup later past year, where he scored 110 runs and bagged only six wickets.

All told, eight protesters were arrested on a variety of charges, the Portland Police Department said in a statement. Charges range from criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, inciting a riot and possession of a destructive device.

Following a small opening ceremony, declared open by Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan, the cricketers kneeled on one leg and raised their fist showing solidarity with the movement that started in 2013. Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim also scored 19 each. He scored 19 runs with the bat at a strike rate of 44.19.

Earlier, debutant Hasan Mahmud grabbed 3-28 and Mustafizur Rahman picked up 2-20 to complement Shakib with the ball.

It was the debutant wicketkeeper's first dismissal in ODI cricket. He is capable of scoring quick runs for the side in the remaining matches.

The teams meet again in Dhaka on 22 January for the 2nd ODI. "What does matter to me is playing for the country", Shakib said.

Shakib Al Hasan made a grand comeback to global cricket after being banned for one year for failing to report corrupt approaches.
