Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Bangladesh v Windies 3rd ODI
Windies enthused life in the three-match ODI series by winning the 2nd ODI and levelling the series at 1-1. Both teams now have all to play for at Sylhet.
There were a lot of positives that the Windies can take from the last match. To begin with, their bowling restricted a star-studded Bangladeshi batting lineup to a little over 250 which in itself is an achievement for the Windies bowlers.
Despite half-centuries from Tameem Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan, Oshane Thomas, Kemar Roach and Devendra Bishoo arrested the momentum back from Bangladesh at crucial times and hence did not allow the Bangladeshi batting lineup to fly away with the match.
In reply, Shai Jope who is the most accomplished Windies ODI batsman currently, played exactly like that. He not only scored a century but made sure that he stayed at the crease till the end to take his side to victory with two balls to spare.
However, Bangladesh would be hit by this close loss and will come back with all their intensity in the final ODI. All their bowlers in Shakib Al Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mehidy Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman and Rubel Hossain are equally good and any one of these can shine on the given day. Shakib is not only the most experienced but the most economical of them all.
As for Windies, Shai Hope could expect to get some support from Marlon Samuels and Shimron Hetmyer. With the ball, Oshane Thomas would be the chief wicket-taker while Kemar Roach and Devendra Bishoo will look to build pressure on the opposition by choking the run flow.
Here's a look at the predicted playing XI of both teams.
Bangladesh - Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Imrul Kayes, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mehidy Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain
