About the Match

After being on the receiving end in the longest format of the game, West Indies will be the happier of the two sides to move to the limited overs version of the game. Having said that, West Indies are not coming off a stellar recent record in ODIs. They'll be taking on Bangladesh in first of the 3-match ODI series set to begin on 9th December at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. Bangladesh, on the other hand, haven't really played much limited-overs Cricket of late, and will be looking to replicate their solid test match performance in the ODIs. Given the way they played in the test series, it's going to be an exciting upcoming ODI series.

Match Preview

Bangladesh

Bangladesh have grown leaps and bounds in all formats in recent times. Their superb performance in Asia Cup where they defeated Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan is one of the many instances of them punching above their weight. They have excellent amalgamation of youth and experience which can be really threatening in home conditions.

We won't be seeing many changes in Bangladeshi lineup as compared to their longest format lineup. They're coming off a 2-0 test win where they hammered West Indies by colossal margins in both the matches. Their win in the last test was more pronounced as they defeated the Caribbean team by an innings and 183 runs. Mehidy Hasan played a vital role in their win and he will be keen to replicate his performance in the white-ball Cricket as well.

Having announced his aspirations to pursue political career, all eyes will be Mashrafe Mortaza. Mortaza, up until now, has been a stupendous leader for Bangladesh in the limited overs version of the game and even a small lapse from him could come under a lot of criticism. Although their openers had done well in their most recent ODI outing, against Zimbabwe, the return of Tamim Iqbal will be a welcome change. Additionally, Shakib Al Hasan too will make a comeback to white-ball cricket who was out due to finger injury. Overall, considering the experience and balance of this side, it is certainly one of their best, if not the best lineup in recent times and beating them will not be easy.

Bangladesh Starting Lineup

Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain.

West Indies

There was a time in World Cricket when West Indies was a name which instilled fear among the opponents. That was, however, long time ago and the fans across the globe are awaiting for West Indies to have that sort of dominance. With the likes of Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, and Ewin Lewis around, they did achieve some milestones in T20s, but winning consistently in ODIs has been a pipe-dream for them.

After facing a humiliating defeat in the 2-match test series, West Indies were hoping for a better start to their limited-overs leg of the tour, but all their dreams were shattered when they were thumped even in the practice match. West Indies failed to counter Bangladesh's spinners in the longest version of the game earlier in their tour and batting against spin will more-or-less govern their fate in the upcoming series.

Holder was in and out of the West Indies team during their India tour and he is once again ruled out of the series following a shoulder injury. Rovman Powell will lead the side consisting of Carlos Braithwaite, Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, and Shemron Hetmyer in his absence. Hetmyer has been the leading run scorer for West Indies in the current calendar year and his performance will have an important role to play in the result of this match.

West Indies Starting Lineup

Kieran Powell, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, MN Samuels, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Rovman Powell, Devendra Bishoo, Keemo Paul, Kemar Roach, Oshane Thomas.

Toss Prediction

With surface likely to slow down over the course of 100 overs, the team winning the toss is likely to bat first.

Pitch and Conditions

The surface at Dhaka will be similar to what it was like when Bangladesh met Zimbabwe. While their will be ample value for shots for the batsmen, the surface will be conducive for spin bowling. Scoring with the older ball will not be easy and anything over 260 will be difficult to chase down.

Our Prediction

West Indies haven't really done anything worth mentioning in the recent times in any format of the game, but they certainly do have the firepower to topple any team in the World Cricket. The probability of that happening, however, is remote. The return of Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan has reinforced the strength of Bangladesh's balance and strength and will be tough to beat in home conditions. The hosts are certainly firm favorites to win the upcoming encounter.
