With Ireand already out of the tri-series, Bangladesh and Windies will face each other in the final at Dublin.

When both teams met a couple of days back, Bangladesh trumped the calypso kings by five wickets. This was the second time out of two matches in the tournament that the team was successful in beating Windies by a comfortable margin.

It is no coincidence that Bangladesh have ended on the right side of the line both times. Windies batsmen favour pace and the ball coming on to the bat and hence are destructive against sides with pace bowlers who have less variations. Their effectivity takes a hit against pace bowlers who have a bag of tricks up their sleeve including several varieties of slower ones.

This is the reason why Mashrafe Mortaza and Mustafizur Rahman, both of whom use a lot of variations, have been successful in the two matches against Windies. The men in Red have struggled against quality spinners as well.


Despite the century from Paul Stirling and a handy 94 from captain William Porterfield, Bangladesh were successful in easily chasing down the 293-run target posted by Ireland in their last match. Each of Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah were among the runs, while Abu Jayed snaffled a five-wicket haul.

Discounting the one match that was washed out, Bangladesh have won all their matches in the tri-series till now. As the two teams step out in the final, the odds will be stacked in the favour of Bangladesh.

 

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

 

Windies- Shai Hope, Sunil Ambris, Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, Jonathan Carter, Jason Holder, Fabian Allen, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel

Bangladesh- Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mehidy Hasan, Abu Jayed, Mustafizur Rahman
