Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction- Windies v Bangladesh ODI tri-series
After a dominating performance against Ireland, Windies will now clash against Bangladesh in Dublin.
Windies' openers Shai Hope and John Campbell broke the record for the highest opening partnership in ODIs, moving past the previous best opening partnership of 304 set by Pakistan's Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman. Both the openers scored in excess of 170 and helped Windies post a mammoth 381-run total on the board.
Ashley Nurse then spun a web, with contributions from Shannon Gabriel and Kemar Roach as Ireland were bundled out for just 185 and Windies won by a huge margin of 196 runs.
Windies are without some of their their big guns but their dominance shows that they still have a lot of talent in their ranks.
Bangladesh are coming into this match on the back of a 0-3 drubbing at the hands of New Zealand. Out of the last three matches that the team has played at this venue, they have lost two, while Windies have won all of their last three ODIs here.
The Tigers have a lot of potential with players like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah in their batting line up. Sabbir Rahman was also impressive in the recently concluded ODI series against New Zealand. Among the bowlers, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahim and Rubel Hussain would be their impact players.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
Windies- John Campbell, Shai Hope (wk), Darren Bravo, Sunil Ambris, Shane Dowrich, Roston Chase, Jason Holder (c), Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel
