WI vs BD Match Details

Match: West Indies vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I | Bangladesh Tour of West Indies

Date: Saturday, 02 July 2022

Time: 23:00 (GMT+5.5) / 23:30 (GMT+6)

Format: T20I

Venue: Windsor Park, Dominica


WI vs BD Preview

  • The West Indies defeated Bangladesh 2-0 in Tests played in the Caribbean.
  • In T20 cricket, Nicholas Pooran and Akeal Hosein have been standout performers for the West Indies.
  • Bangladesh has been under-powered in the competition thus far and may be lacking in confidence heading into this match.

 

Following the hosts’ 2-0 victory in the two-match Test series, all eyes are on the start of the West Indies vs. Bangladesh IT20 series. The West Indies have not played in this format since losing 3-0 to India in February of this year. Bangladesh tied Afghanistan in their most recent IT20 series, 1-1. The first IT20 begins on Saturday at 13:30 local time at Windsor Park in Dominica.

West Indies has fallen out of favor in this format after holding the World Cup from 2016 to 2021. They have had a significant personnel change and now have an exciting new team.

In their first decades as an established cricketing nation, Bangladesh won many games as underdogs. However, they underperformed in the 2021 T20 World Cup and will need to improve in this format if they compete.


WI vs BD Weather Report

Dominica’s opening IT20 has been cloudy and humid. There is a slight chance of rain delaying proceedings, but not enough to prevent a full game from taking place.


WI vs BD Match Toss Prediction

There have previously been two IT20s played at this venue, with both toss-winning captains opting to bat first. We anticipate that both teams will want to chase a total in the game’s second innings.


WI vs BD Pitch Report

It won’t be the fastest or bouncy wicket in the Caribbean, but that shouldn’t stop a lot of sixes in this game. We anticipate that pace-off bowlers will benefit from the pitch and that the par score will be no higher than 170.


West Indies Team News & Probable Playing XIs

There will be many changes from the West Indies IT20 team that faced India in Kolkata in February. Only five players from the XI that was defeated by 17 runs in that game are in the squad for this series. Nicholas Pooran will captain the team, with Rovman Powell serving as vice-captain.

Recent form – L L L W L

West Indies’s Probable XI

Nicholas Pooran (c & wk), Kyle Mayers, Devon Thomas, Rovman Powell, Brandon King, Shamarh Brooks, Alzarri Joseph, Romario Shepherd, Obed McCoy, Akeal Hosein, and Hayden Walsh.


Bangladesh Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Bangladesh are expected to make only a few changes from their last T20I against Afghanistan at the beginning of March. Mushfiqur Rahim, an experienced batter, has not traveled to the Caribbean for the tour, nor has Mohammad Naim, who has struggled with form.

Recent form – L W L L L

Bangladesh’s Probable XI

Mahmudullah (c), Litton Das (wk), Munim Shahriar, Shakib Al Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Nasum Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, and Shoriful Islam.
