Bangladesh's win over Windies by a comfortable eight-wicket margin just a few days back would be reason enough for the team to be confident going into this match.

In the last game played between the two teams, it were Mashrafe Mortaza and Mohammad Saifuddin who put on the brakes on the Windies batting. Despite a century from Shai Hope, there were no substantial contributions from other batsmen apart from Roston Chase as the team posted a below par total of 261.

In reply, each of Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim impressed during their stay at the crease, as Bangladesh nailed the win with five overs to spare.

Windies are coming off a five-wicket victory against Ireland, successfully chasing down the 328-run target with more than two overs to spare. It has been quite interesting to track the development of Windies cricket in the absence of their big stars. They have cultivated a second rung of players, which is now coming good. Whoever gets an opportunity tries to make the best of it.


It was Sunil Ambris this time who slammed 148 runs off just 126 deliveries. Jonathan Carter also played a quick 27-ball 43-run hand to ensure a win for Windies.

Their bowling still needs a lot of improvement as they struggle to break through, especially on non-responsive pitches. Shannon Gabriel has been a class apart and has the ability to extract something out of the surface with his extra pace.Bangladesh's win over Windies by a comfortable eight-wicket margin just a few days back would be reason enough for the team to be confident going into this match.

 

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