About the Match

West Indies return to the format they love the most after having a dismal tour so far in the Bangladesh. First they were whitewashed in the longest format of the game and then they lost in the ODI series 2-1 despite showing a few glimpses of brilliance. The three match T20I series begins on 17th December with first match of the series to be played at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Sylhet. Being known to dominate in the shortest format of the game, the Caribbean team will be looking to change their fortunes and finish the tour on a high. Bangladesh, on the other hand, have had a splendid tour so far and it won't be surprising if they emerge on top yet again.

Match Preview

Bangladesh

Cricket fans will see two major changes in the Bangladeshi lineup for the shortest format of the game. Following a poor string of scores, Imrul Kayes has been dropped from the side which is coincidentally the only omission from the side which played in the ODIs. Mashrafe Mortaza, too, will not be available for the T20s as he's retired from the T20Is.

Bangladesh last played a T20I series back in July which was against the same West Indies team. They'll draw confidence from their 2-1 victory back then and strong recent performances. Tamim Iqbal had a good series after a poor comeback game and he will be vital to the home team's fortunes.

There are a couple of changes to the team which played against West Indies back in July. However, they're likely to field the same core as they did back then and in the recently concluded ODI series. Mohammad Mithun retained his place in the side on the back of good Asia Cup performances and him along with Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan will form the backbone of their batting order. It will be interesting to see how Shakib Al Hasan captains the side and if they are able to continue their run which has been stupendous in the recent times.

Bangladesh Starting Lineup

Liton Das, Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Ariful Haque, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Abu Hider, Mustafizur Rahman.

West Indies

Following a poor run in the two longer formats of the game, the Caribbean team has called up their T20 stars a bid to rescue them from the humiliation they've faced in the recent times. The major change will be that of Evin Lewis returning back to the squad and the visitors will be hoping that he brings about change in their batting fortunes.

Opening was a major issue for them in the recently concluded and West Indies will be hoping for a fix with the arrival of swashbuckling opening batsman who is well-versed in playing in similar conditions, thanks to his experience of playing in the Indian Premier League. Kesrick Williams and Sheldon Correll too joined back to further strengthen their bowling attack.

In the ODI leg, it was mainly Shai Hope who was responsible for dragging West Indies across the line in the one-off win. He also scored well in the other two matches, but no support from the rest of the batsmen meant easy victories for the hosts. Hetmyer has done well in the calendar year so far barring the last ODI series and the team will be looking up to him to do the damage along with Hope and Lewis. If their batting can step up and do the damage they're known to, they'll definitely give Bangladesh a run for their money.

West Indies Starting Lineup

Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite, F Allen, Keemo Paul, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas.

Match Prediction

Bangladesh have done extremely well of late and their resurgence has not been hidden in the World Cricket. West Indies are undergoing transition and will be boosted by the return of Evin Lewis. They're expected to fare better than they did in ODIs, but considering recent form and home advantage that Bangladesh have, the more likely outcome of the match is a Bangladesh victory.
