Today’s West Indies v Bangladesh betting odds have the Windies as favourites. We have lots of issues with the Windies but even more with Bangladesh and batting power definitely gives the defending champions the edge.
So that’s who we’re going with. There are also cricket betting tips on the toss winner and I’ve picked a top West Indies bowler to round things off.
Two games, two losses. In truth, it was pretty much game over against England as soon as they lost the toss and were forced to bat.
That Mushfiqur Rahim (for the second game running) top scored with just 29 tells its own story. He was the only batter who seemed comfortable with the wicket at any stage and even then his strike rate was just 96.66.
And for the second game running Shakib Al-Hasan didn’t come to the party with the bat. On the one hand it’s a bit much to expect him to shine every time he plays.
On the other hand, when you’re lacking star players, you really do need the ones you have to be at their best. Nasum Ahmed was the best of a bad bunch with 19 off 9 balls with the bat and the wicket of Jos Buttler.
Soumya Sarkar and Rubel Hossein might get a game. They have little to lose by letting them improve the team’s fortunes.
There have been two high scoring encounters here at Sharjah so far. There was the 171 posted by Bangladesh themselves, chased by Sri Lanka, and there was the mammoth 190 posted by Afghanistan. Not chased by Scotland.
Then again, that was against a weak bowling attack. And then on Tuesday we had New Zealand crawl to 134 and Pakistan having a wobble in chasing it but getting there in the end.
So good luck figuring out what a par score is. What’s easier to work out is that chasing is the way to go here. But then again, chasing is the way to go on all these UAE wickets.
At first glance, I was incredibly surprised by how close the head-to-head is between these two. The Windies are ‘just’ 6-5. They’re double World Champions, Bangladesh are perennial strugglers in this format.
Then again, Bangladesh have only ever played once in the Caribbean so it’s perhaps not that big a surprise that the Tigers have matched the West Indies in their own conditions.
