Bangladesh won by 36 runs

ABOUT THE MATCH

Despite losing the 3 match ODI series, West Indies were at their ruthless best as they made short work of Bangladesh in the opening T20 and registered an 8 wicket win with 55 balls to spare.

Match Preview

Victory in the series opener means that the West Indies have won 5 of their 10 T20 international meetings against Bangladesh. 4 have gone Bangladesh’s way while one match ended without a result.

Despite their impressive performances in the ODI series, hosts Bangladesh looked completely listless in Sylhet. Despite winning the toss and electing to bat, only 3 batsmen got to double figures. The only performance worth talking about was Shakib Al Hasan’s gritty 61 which was the only knock that went beyond the 20 run mark.

129 is not exactly the most defendable score in T20 cricket but the Bangladeshi bowlers did not even put up a fight. They were just as hapless as their bowlers as West Indies made short work of the target set for them. 4 of the 6 Bangladesh bowlers went for over 13 runs an over and that’s definitely not a good sign.

iconWest Indies Team News

Shai Hope came into this match in blistering form, having scored back to back ODI centuries. His participation in this match was in doubt after he had been hit on the helmet in the third ODI. But he seemed completely fine as he marched his way to the third fastest half century in T20 international history. He reached the 50 mark in just 16 deliveries in an innings that featured 3 fours and 6 sixes. If he can keep this form going, West Indies should take this series comfortably. He got able support from Keemo Paul who justified his promotion in the batting order with 3 huge sixes.

Earlier, in the bowling department, Sheldon Cottrell had led the charge with 4 wickets that tore through the Bangladesh batting line up. Keemo Paul had picked up 2.

Pitch Conditions

 

Unlike the pitch in Sylhet, the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Dhaka will offer plenty of runs to the batsmen. A first innings score of 180 should be on the cards. Dew will be a factor later in the match and the team bowling second will struggle to grip the ball.

Toss Prediction

 

Expect the team winning the toss to bat first.

Our Match Prediction

With the kind of form that they are in, expect West Indies to win this one as well.
