Bangladesh have secured an eight-wicket win over West Indies in their 50-over Tri-Nation series clash in Dublin.

Shai Hope hit a second successive ODI century, but Bangladesh's openers Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar inspired their defeat.

Hope's 109 came just two days after his 170 in the victory over Ireland gave him and John Campbell a combined 365, the highest opening stand in one-day international history.

His latest performance took West Indies to 207/4 in the 43rd over, but after he was dismissed, they began to struggle.

Tamim's 80 and Sarkar's 73 took Bangladesh to 144 from their opening wicket, when the latter was caught off the bowling of Roston Chase by Darren Bravo.

A 61 from Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim's 32 then secured the win with five overs to spare, as Shakib hit the crucial four off Sheldon Cottrell.

Bangladesh face Ireland on Thursday, three days before West Indies take on the same opposition.
