Bangladesh scored 211 against West Indies in the second Twenty20 international against Bangladesh in Dhaka on Thursday.


Liton Das hammered a magnificent fifty of 60 off 34 balls hitting six fours and four huge sixes.


Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah scored 42 off 26, 32 off 22 and 43 off 21 balls respectively.


Bangladesh's previous highest score in T20I against West Indies was 184 in Lauderhill, Florida.


This was also the highest T20I total at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. The previous highest T20I total in Mirpur was 204 which was struck by New Zealand back in 2013.


Windies skipper Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and elected to field.


Bangladesh lost the series opener in Sylhet. So they have no alternative but to win the game to remain alive in the series. The last match of the series will take place at the same venue on December 22.


Both sides fielded unchanged teams for the second game.
