After Mohammad Mithun fell two overs later, the chase got tense, with Bangladesh needing 67 off the last 50 balls. Well played Soumya Sarkar and Mosaddek Hossain.

When play resumed, the final was reduced to 24 overs per side.

There were whispers of Taskin being included in place of Jayed for the World Cup and after Jayed's lacklustre performance in his ODI debut against West Indies on May 13, where he finished with 0-56, the speculations gained more wind. The Bangladesh bowlers have cut down their scoring as soon as the ball has gotten softer, and West Indies' lack of discipline with the ball in the aftermath of a breakthrough. While chasing the target, Bangladesh added 51 runs in five overs. Before this match, Bangladesh played six tournament finals in global cricket (four in ODIs and two in T20Is).

The prize money is part of an overall US$10 million payout for the tournament in which West Indies are two-time champions, having won the first two editions in 1975 and 1979.

West Indies openers Shai Hope and Sunil Ambris combined for 144 until Hope was smartly caught on the midwicket boundary by Mosaddek for 74 off 64 balls.

Bangladesh's second heartbreak was against Pakistan in the 2012 Asia Cup while four years later Bangladesh lost to India in Asia Cup Twenty20 final. Bangladesh are said to be lacking hitting powers unlike some of the other cricketing nation and this specific area is considered as a major concern for them in the upcoming global tournament. In this tri-series, he has carried on that good form.

West Indies made 152 for 1 in 24 overs after rains halted play when the team were 131 for no loss in 20.1 overs in a commanding start. Ireland was defeated in each game of the Tri-series. Bangladesh were far ahead of their opponents in this event in terms of playing better cricket. Bangladesh lost in the Asia Cup final in 2018 which saw cricket pundits giving the Tigers as a choker tag.

Bangladesh came into the series with an aim to adjust to the hazy English conditions before the start of their World Cup campaign and to find the confidence of winning matches in foreign conditions.

With the World Cup widely being believed to be a run-fest, Mashrafe said the chase of huge total would give them a confidence to hunt down any big target or set a enormous total in the cricket's biggest carnival.
