BAN won by 5 wickets
Bangladesh beat the West Indies by five wickets in the ODI Tri-Series in Ireland to set up a final rematch between the teams on Friday.
Ireland, who are at the bottom of the table with only two points, will face Bangladesh in a dead rubber on May 15.
Mushfiqur Rahim (63) and Soumya Sarkar (54) hit half-centuries as Bangladesh reached their target of 248 with five wickets and 16 balls to spare.
West Indies had elected to bat and scored 247-9 in their 50 overs, with Shai Hope (87) and Jason Holder (62) leading the way.
But Mustafizur Rahman's four-for and Mashrafe Mortaza's three wickets kept West Indies to a modest total.
Soumya's quick-fire innings came off 67 balls to get Bangladesh's run chase off to a fast start.
After they had lost three wickets in the middle-overs to Ashley Nurse, Mushfiqur put together two key partnerships.
Mushfiqur and Mohammad Mithun hit 83 for the fourth wicket before he and Mahmudullah put on 50 for fifth wicket to pave the way for the victory.
The Windies have now lost twice to Bangladesh in a week and will be hoping for revenge in Friday's final.
