West Indies vs Bangladesh: Match Preview

The form of West Indies

Andre Russell, an all-rounder who last competed for the West Indies in one-day internationals in November 2015, has made his way back into the ODI squad for the Caribbean nation.

In addition, Alzarri Joseph and Kieran Powell were chosen to be a part of the team’s 13-man roster. However, Marlon Samuels, Carlos Brathwaite, and Kesrick Williams did not make the cut. These three players were all a part of the team that competed in the ICC World Cup Qualifiers. Kemar Roach, the home team’s premier fast bowler, will not be participating in this series due to rest restrictions.

Nicholas Pooran, who was captaining the team, played an outstanding inning of 34 runs, while Brandon King, who was batting first, hit 57 off of 43 balls. Rovman Powell was the one who caused the most destruction, as he hammered 61 runs off of just 28 balls. During his innings, he hit two boundaries and six sixes of huge distance. Because of his tremendous performance, the West Indies were able to surpass the 190-run mark and get to 193 for 5 in their allotted number of overs.

More than three months have passed since West Indies’ last one-day international match, which took place in Zimbabwe as part of ICC World Cup Qualifying.

They were victorious over every other team in the competition, with the sole exception of Afghanistan, who prevailed over them not once but twice, including in the final.

Before participating in that competition, the Windies had previously been defeated by England and New Zealand by scores of 0-4 and 0-3 respectively.

The form of Bangladesh

It was originally unclear whether or not Mashrafe Mortaza would captain the squad against the Windies in this series, but it has now been determined that he will do so.

In addition to bringing in four new players, Bangladesh has also brought back Mosaddek Hossain and Liton Das to their national team squad. Also joining the team are Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Abu Jayed, Abu Hider, and Nazmul Islam. Batsmen Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Mithun, and Nasir Hossain, spinner Sunzamul Islam, and two all-rounders, Mohammad Saifuddin and Abul Hasan have been removed from the visitors’ lineup.

The last One-Day International match that Bangladesh played was in January, and it was part of a tri-series at home that also included Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe. They were successful in both of their matches against Zimbabwe but ultimately fell short in the championship match against the same opponent, losing by 79 runs. A bilateral series between Bangladesh and South Africa was played prior to the tri-series, and Bangladesh was defeated by the hosts in the series 0-3 overall.

West Indies vs Bangladesh 1st ODI: Head to Head

The West Indies currently holds a 19-7 edge over Bangladesh in the scoreline after the two teams have competed against each other 26 times using the 50-over format. When Bangladesh visited the Windies in 2014, they competed against them in a one-day international match at Basseterre.

The home team won by a score of 91 runs after batting first and scoring 338/7 in their 50 overs. In response, the away team was only able to score 247/8 in their 50 overs.

There has never been a match between these two nations in a one-day international that took place at this venue.

West Indies vs Bangladesh 1st ODI: Pitch Report

The fact that only a couple of games have been played at Province Stadium, Guyana so far this season suggests that the field will most likely still be in fantastic shape when the next game is played there.

It is hypothesized that hitters will have an advantage due to the hardness of the surface, whilst seam bowlers will have an advantage due to the tendency of the ball to bounce off of the surface. Both of these factors will work to the seam bowlers’ advantage. Spinners will have the ability to buy a range of different items throughout the middle overs of the game.

West Indies vs Bangladesh: Toss prediction

The Providence bowling alley has a pitch that has a tendency to develop slowly as the match proceeds and provides the bowlers with extra help later in the game.

Additionally, given that the team that batted first won 11 of the 19 one-day internationals that were played at this venue, the captain who wins the toss will most likely choose to bat first when making his decision.

West Indies vs Bangladesh 1st ODI: Top player picks

West Indies

When it comes to limited-overs cricket, the hosts have one of the most dangerous opening pairs in the world in the form of Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis.

Both batsmen have a strike rate of approximately 85 in this format, and Bangladesh will be in a great deal of difficulty if these two start scoring runs for them. During the second test, Shimron Hetmyer had a successful performance with a knock of 86, while hard-hitter Andre Russell will be eager to make a solid return to one-day internationals.

The previous test series was won by Jason Holder, who took 16 wickets, and he will continue to be the most dangerous batsman for Bangladesh in this new series as well. In 13 One-Day Internationals, Alzarri Joseph has taken 23 wickets, and he has the potential to cause early damage with the new ball. During the middle overs, off-spin bowler Ashley Nurse will attempt to make an impact with his delivery.


It will be up to Tamim Iqbal, who leads Bangladesh in runs scored in one-day internationals, to get the side off to a fast start. Mushfiqur Rahim is another important batsman for the visitors at the top with 5 hundreds and 28 fifty-plus scores. In this format, Shakib Al Hasan is the squad’s second-best batsman. He also led the team in runs scored during the test series and took eight wickets.

Bangladesh will also be depending on their captain Mashrafe Mortaza to do well with the ball, even though Shakib’s all-around performance will be crucial. The team’s main hope with the new ball will be the seamer, who has taken the most ODI wickets for the group. Mehidy Hasan was superb in the tests, taking ten wickets in two games, and it will be essential that he carries over that form.

Top Bowler (Wickets taken) – Nkrumah Bonner (West Indies), Mustafizur Rahman (Bangladesh)

 Who will win the match? Match winner prediction

Out of the thirteen one-day international matches West Indies played at the Providence, they won six and lost seven. This is a rather average record for a home field, so they will be looking at this game as a chance to change that. Bangladesh has lost five times in the last six games played in this format, while the hosts have a much better overall record against them in ODIs. The visitors, on the other hand, will lack confidence as a result of failing both tests within a three-day period.

In the shorter form of the game, they might perform better with the ball, but given how the test series played out, they don’t inspire much confidence with the bat. After such a humiliation, it is quite doubtful that Bangladesh will mount a significant comeback, hence we forecast another straightforward victory for the Windies in this match.
