Dublin: Bangladesh qualified for the tri-nations cricket final in Ireland after another cruisy win over the West Indies on Monday.
The West Indies reached Friday's final after beating the tournament host on Saturday for a second time. But it lost for a second straight time to Bangladesh, when 247-9 was easily chased down by Bangladesh, which made 248-5 with 16 balls to spare.
The match was won tamely on a wide delivery by Sheldon Cottrell, but it was an all-round effort by Bangladesh.
Without haste, opener Soumya Sarkar scored 54 and Mushfiqur Rahim 63, and they were well supported by Tamim Iqbal (21), Shakib Al Hasan (29), Mohammad Mithun (43), and Mahmudullah (30 not out).
Offspinner Ashley Nurse was the pick of the bowlers with 3-53.
Bangladesh's own bowlers set up the easy chase after restricting the West Indies to another sub-par total.
Opener Shai Hope made 87 from 108 balls and was on track to a third century in four games until he tried to pull Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and ended up being caught behind.
Hope's stand of 100 with captain Jason Holder, who racked 62 from 76, was the only partnership of substance by the West Indies. Both batsmen were out within two overs of each other.
Pacers Mashrafe and Mustafizur Rahman shared seven wickets, but the West Indies was tied down by the spinners, especially Shakib, who finished with figures of 10-1-27-1.
Bangladesh finishes the round-robin against Ireland on Wednesday, followed by the final on Friday, all on the same Malahide ground.

Bangladesh are expected to travel to Sri Lanka in April and May for a Test series, before playing them again at home in a three-match one-day international series shortly afterwards.
Sri Lanka Cricket said it was "disheartening" that Vaas had made the "sudden and irresponsible move on the eve of the team's departure based on personal monetary gain".
Australia's David Warner along with Pakistan's Babar Azam, South Africa's Quinton de Kock and West Indies' Jason Holder are on a list of over 250 players vying for the seven remaining overseas places in the draft for the inaugural edition of the Hundred competition.
