DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — New captain Mushfiqur Rahim smashed the penultimate ball for six to lead Bangladesh to a three-wicket win over West Indies in the one-off Twenty20 match on Tuesday.

Mushfiqur plundered 41 off 26 balls to help his side past the winning target of 133 with one ball to spare.

Marlon Samuels gave West Indies a chance of victory by top-scoring with 58 in the visitors' total of 132-8 and then taking the wickets of Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Ashraful in a spell of 2-14.

That left Bangladesh on 71-5 after 13 overs, but the home side's lower order managed 64 runs from the last seven overs.
