Joshua Da Silva and Rovman Powell shone with the bat in the lone warm-up match played between West Indies players at BKSP on Monday. Joshua struck 56 runs before retiring out while Powell scored 49 runs as West Indies XI made 258-9 in 47 overs against the remaining squad. Akeal Hosein and Raymon Reifer bagged two wickets each in a match where only one inning was played between the squad. West Indies will now take on hosts Bangladesh in the first of three-match ODI series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Wednesday.
