Bangladesh are a great T20 side. It is just that results haven’t gone their way. They struggled to Afghanistan’s spin,South Africa’s pace and to India’s grit. They could have had won the Nidahas Trophy wasn’t it for Dinesh’s heroics. Having lost the last 4 T20 series they have played, they would be eager to change the record.
Bangladesh would be boasted by return of Fizz. It is the strongest Squad they have posted in a while now. What governs this series is how that Squad strength translates to performance. Bangladesh have shown in the past that it is way more complex than it actually sounds like. They have been there but they haven’t crossed the line.
Bangladesh have won only 1 of the last 5 matches they have played. 3 of these losses have come against Afghanistan. Bangladesh have won one of the last 5 matches these 2 sides have played together. Interestingly, West Indies have also won 1 of the last 5 matches they have played-against the World 11. Having won 3 of their matches against Bangladesh,however, they do have history on their sides.
West Indies are a great T20 side-the most successful in a sense that they have won 2 World T20s. Their T20 fortunes though have been on a decline as they have lacked consistency. They are suited to the T20 style of play,lighting up T20 tournaments around the globe. They haven’t been able to replicate that in International Circuit. The prime reason for this is that more often than not, their B team plays their International Games.
