Head to head a total of 12 T20I’s have been played between the Bangladesh team and the West Indies team. Six of them were won by the Windies team and five of them won by the Bangladeshi team. Also, remember that both teams have already played their two matches out of five, each team lost both of them. The West Indies are the defending champions but so far their performance in both departments’ batting/bowling is not much appreciable. Bangladesh tried its best in both matches. Unfortunately in the first match, their bowling attack was not good, in the second match, their batting order collapsed.
WI vs BD Highlights Today, Friday 29-10-2021. 23rd Match, Group 1, ICC Men’s T20 World Cup West Indies vs Bangladesh, from Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
Mahmudullah win the toss and BD will Bowl first.
Mahmudullah: “We’re going to bowl first. We had a bit of a look at the stats. They’ve got a big batting order depth, so we’ll try to restrict them to a decent total and try to chase it down. Two changes. Nurul is not playing Soumya Sarkar comes in. Nasum is not playing and Taskin comes in.”
Kieron Pollard: “It is (do or die). That’s the reality of the situation. We don’t have anyone to blame but ourselves, so it’s on us to get out of this situation. We need to give the bowlers something to defend. Two changes. Simmons misses out, Roston Chase makes his international debut. Hayden Walsh is out and Jason Holder comes in.” Pollard confirms that Chris Gayle is going to open the batting.
