West Indies and Bangladesh will clash for the 23rd match of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup to be played at The Cooper Associates County Ground Taunton.


Both teams started their World Cup campaign on a winning note but have failed to register another win after that. Bangladesh stunned South Africa in their first match as they posted their highest ODI total of 330 and won the match by 20 runs.

Similarly, West Indies blew away Pakistan in their first game and bowled them out for 105, taking the game comfortably by seven wickets.

Both teams have suffered one washed out match and have lost the remaining two games and are with three points each. Both teams have clashed a total of 37 times in ODI cricket in which Windies have won 21 and Bangladesh have won 14.

 
In the recently concluded tri-nation series held in Ireland, Bangladesh defeated West Indies in all the three matches played between the two teams. But one should remember that that West Indies outfit was without Chris Gayle and Andre Russell.

In the last game played between the two teams, it was Shai Hope who starred for the Men in Maroon with 74. In reply, Soumya Sarkar top scored for Bangladesh with 66 and Mosaddek Hossain made a 27-ball 52 to take Bangladesh to a five-wicket win.

The last five matches that West Indies have played, they have lost three and won one, with one match has being abandoned due to rain, while Bangladesh have lost two and won three.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

West Indies- Chris Gayle, Shai Hope (wk), Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Jason Holder (c), Carlos Brathwaite, Fabian Allen, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas

Bangladesh- Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mossadek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mustafizur Rahman
