West Indies will be playing their second ODI against Bangladesh in less than 48 hours between the matches and such jam-packed schedule won't allow them much to think about the loss they faced in the first match of the series. Their second match of the series, against Tigers, which is to be played at the same venue, against the Tigers, starts on 11th December at 1230 pm IST. Over the years and more so in the recent times, West Indies have made it a habit to get into a mess in the earlier part of the series, but often they've managed to fight back. The hosts will try to deny just that and wrap up the series with yet another win in the second match.
Bangladesh's resurgence in limited-overs Cricket of late hasn't gone unnoticed by anyone. They've improved massively over the years and were the finalists in recently concluded Asia Cup. They've continued to put solid show ever since. They won their home series against Zimbabwe and are well on their way to topple West Indies as they now lead 1-0 in the series.
Bowling first in the first ODI, on a challenging surface, their bowlers never allowed Windies batsmen to settle down. Skipper Mashrafe Mortaza led from the front as he not only kept the flow of runs in check, but also kept picking up wickets in the middle overs. His spell left West Indies in a position of no return and Mustafizur Rahman cleaned up the tail which left their batsmen a rather easy job to chase a subpar total.
Although the return of Tamim Iqbal would certainly have reignited the team-morale, it didn't pan out well on the field. Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes were both dismissed inside the first powerplay leaving Bangladesh in a bothersome position. Shakib Al Hasan, however, relieved all the pressure of Bangladesh with his quick cameo of 30 runs. Bangladesh did get some minor obstacles during their chase, but assured innings from Mushfiqur Rahim saw them home without any major difficulty. Overall, with an excellent attack suited perfectly for home conditions couple with experienced batting lineup, this Bangladeshi lineup will be hard to get past.
Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Imrul Kayes, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain.
Ever since their home win against the Tigers earlier this year, the Windies haven't really had a bright time. They've lost all the ODI series they've played including one home series. They then lost away series against India where they managed to put up an improved performance. Their campaign in Bangladesh didn't start off well with a loss in Test series followed by a loss in the first ODI.
Batting first after winning the toss in the opening ODI, West Indies stayed remotely away from the total they were after. Their batsmen struggled to stay afloat on a tricky surface even after a decent start. They slid from 65 from 1 to 127 for 6 with not many overs remaining. They were rather slow in preperation of a late assault which never happened. Eventually, they could score only a total of 195 which needed a colossal effort to defend.
Just like they did with the bat, they started decently with the ball by removing Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes early in the powerplay. They, however, could not sustain the pressure and lost it in the middle overs where steady partnerships involving Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim saw Bangladesh home. There was no real fight from West Indies' bowlers in the middle and death overs which they'd be keen to address going into the second ODI.
Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, MN Samuels, Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Roston Chase, Keemo Paul, Kemar Roach, Devendra Bishoo, Oshane Thomas.
It was a tough surface to bat on in the first match where every run was of significant importance. It is expected to be same in the second match as well and the experience of playing in these conditions will come in handy. Bangladesh have a better team combination and more players experienced playing in these conditions. We think Bangladesh will win the second ODI to wrap up the series.
