The uncertainty over Mashrafe’s availability for ODI series against West Indies, happily ended, as Bangladesh’s ODI captain Mashrafe Mortaza took off for West Indies on Monday night.

Earlier, a six-member Bangladesh ODI team, split into two groups, arrived in West Indies to play a three-match ODI series as many T20 Internationals.
