West Indies Team News

There’s no need to explain everything that’s gone wrong with the Windies so far because in this article, I’ve done just that. 

Have a read and maybe you’ll agree with my assessment regarding team tactics, how they picked the wrong players and what they need to do to have any chance of still making the semis.

Speaking of which, to make the semis they’ll need to win every single game from here, probably have to drastically improve their net run rate and also hope other results go their way.

Far from straightforward, that’s for sure. But what is worth discussing here are the changes they need to make.

They need to drop Lendl Simmons, who was more responsible than anyone for that loss to South Africa after his appalling and painstakingly slow innings. He didn’t hit a boundary in 35 balls.

Andre Fletcher needs to come in for him. And they need to drop either Nicholas Pooran or Shimron Hetmyer for Roston Chase.

Pooran is also the wicket-keeper but that’s no problem because so is Fletcher and he could take over the gloves.

West Indies Likely XI

Lewis, Fletcher, Gayle, Chase, Pooran, Pollard, Russell, Bravo, McCoy, Hossein, Rampaul.

Bangladesh Team News

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.

Bangladesh Likely XI

Das, Naim, Shakib, Rahim, Mahmudullah, Hossain, Hasan, Ahmed, Rahman.

Venue & conditions

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.

Here’s our guide to Sharjah if you want to know more about it.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Head-to-Head

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.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Toss Prediction

Let’s look at West Indies v Bangladesh toss winner statistics. If the Windies are slightly ahead on the wins, then Bangladesh are miles ahead on toss wins.

They’ve won two for every one that the Windies have won. Show faith in the Tigers to win this one.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: West indies to win @ 1.49 with Pure Win

The way they’ve played so far, I wouldn’t necessarily be fancying the Windies against many teams.

I’d go as far as saying that if Bangladesh win the toss and get to bat second, they might be a decent bet because of the toss bias that ‘almost’ guarantees you win the game if you’re allowed to chase.

Having said that, given the purpose of this preview is to pick a team pe-toss, it’s going to have to be the Windies.

Sooner or later their big hitters will come good to an extent and that’s just too much power for Bangladesh, who really have struggled to hit boundaries in their first two games.

And here’s our Pure Win review where we tell you all you need to know about one of India’s top betting sites.

Today’s West Indies vs Bangladesh Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Akeal Hossein to be West Indies top bowler @ 4.30 with 10CRIC

If you look at how Afghanistan dismantled Scotland here at Sharjah, it was the spinners Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman who did the damage.

Who’s the Windies’ big gun spinner?

That would be Akeal Hossein, the only man to have taken a wicket against SA (the other wicket to fall was a run-out) and the man who bowled beautifully against England, returning figures of 2-24.

So here’s their leading wicket-taker on a turning track who’s guaranteed 4 overs. That makes the 4.3 very appealing.

West Indies vs Bangladesh fun statistics

Let’s round things off with some quick stats ahead of the game.

  • Evin Lewis got the highest individual score of anyone in games between these two when he hit 89. He was also their top scorer in their last game against SA, scoring 56.
  • No surprises when it comes to the top wicket-taker in games between the two: Shakib has taken 19.
  • Mushfiqur Rahim has top scored in both of Bangladesh’s Super 12 games.
