ABOUT THE MATCH

Bangladesh and West Indies head to the final T20 international in Dhaka with the series evenly poised at 1-1. West Indies had won the series opener with ease but the hosts recovered well enough to claim the second match with some authority.

Match Preview

The result from the second match means that both Bangladesh and West Indies have won 5 T20 matches against each other. They have played 11 matches in total in the shortest format, with one match getting washed out.

iconBangladesh Team News

Shakib Al Hasan was the all round star for Bangladesh in the second match, scoring an unbeaten 42 off 26 before claiming 5/20 with the ball. He received some solid batting support from opener Liton Das who had powered to 60 off 34 with 6 fours and 4 sixes. Soumya Sarkar and Mahmadullah also chipped in as Bangladesh posted a whopping 211/4, their second highest total in T20 internationals.

Their batting had done enough for them to claim the match and level the series but Shakib had to do the bulk of the wicket taking as the other bowlers leaked a lot of runs. Mustafizur Rahman claimed 2 wickets but he gave away 50 runs and will want to work on his economy rate. Mohammed Saifuddin went wicketless in his four overs but gave away 42 runs. If they hadn’t posted such a huge total, they would’ve been punished for it.

iconWest Indies Team News

Bowling would be the area that needs immediate attention for the West Indies as well. Keema Paul gave away more than 13 runs an over while Carlos Brathwaite and Oshane Thomas went for above 10. Between the 3, they only managed one wicket which did not help the situation at all. Sheldon Cottrell was the only respite, picking up 2 wickets but he too was guilty of giving away 38 runs.

Despite their deplorable bowling, Rovaman Powell had kept his side in the chase for the longest time with a well-made 50. Shai Hope managed only 36 and that was a big blow for his side. Hope and Shimron Hetmyer need to step up in the third match if they want to win this series. After failing with the ball, Braithwaite showed no improvements with the bat and that does not bode well for his team.
